        Browning - Browning is different. The article is about Hi-Power 9X19.
        The royal family was shot, including from Browning 1900, 7,65 mm. In a dying testament, Medvedev-Kudrin asked his son to give Browning to Khrushchev, from whom the imperial family was killed. He died in 1964.

      Sergei hi
      High Power is just a legend. In my opinion, it is much more reliable and efficient than the Colt M1911 (although both have one “dad”).
      Ours also looked at him before the Great Patriotic War. At the GAU KA proving ground in 1941, we conducted comparative tests of our and foreign pistols, including the High Power.
      High Power won the competition, showing 4,25% of the delays - the best result among all tested samples.
      Our TTs and Vojvodina had 8,26% and 7,0% request

    A good "gun" but almost kilograms of weight is too much! It's a little less than Stechkin. But he had the opportunity to shoot in bursts. On the whole, High Power is a good gun. But for its time.

              Even if he were a close friend to me, I would not be sure that he liked more and what specific weapons he held.

              Are you his friend? Do you know?

            It was sarcasm, if that. Of course, Highpower is an epic gun, and it's stupid to deny it.

            ...

            Without sarcasm. I went over with an analogy, I won’t go deeper - it’s not about the gun, I wanted to catch who would get excited and explain what kind of specialist Badiuk was, it was painfully contradictory, and all information about him was closed. He knows a lot about weapons, but superficially, many inaccuracies and mistakes. Pernach held many other things in his hands, the cycle leads or led the cognitive "male toys" of YouTube, if memory serves. However, the instructor of the Ministry of Internal Affairs shot from this variety.

          Baduk is a good sergeant, and his level is quite consistent. But the armory is a very delicate matter. And obviously not his skate. Although as a "user", he reliably responded about weapons about which he filmed programs.

      There would have been no Browning, and even earlier, there would have been no TT. So before clicking a button with quotes, it would be nice to work with a search engine - to know what it was about.

        I can not agree with this. TT and Browning 1903 are different pistols. As well as PM and Walter PP.
        Appearance is similar, and our "Victory" is similar to other passenger cars. And the notorious Browning 1903K, stored in a single copy in our museum of one research institute, with which the structures were compared, is most likely a joke of designers used in the 90s as an ideological sabotage to discredit the Soviet past. The existence of such a model was hardly guessed by D.M. Browning himself.

        Who is joking here will depend on who here understands that there is a "legend" and that there is "all over the world." To begin with, which is simpler, start by evaluating the Kalashnikov assault rifle using these criteria.

          To begin with, start with how much which gun went around the world, and after how many and which countries it was manufactured and for how long it was not discontinued and was in demand ... then everything will fall into place !!!! yes TT legend but this legend is in our country .. if you take the planet earth then TT is just an outdated military pistol since the second world war ... and where does AK here ??? Kalash is no doubt a world legend you can’t argue with that ...

            So I’m talking about the same thing, you started to assert that it’s not a legend and is not known all over the world ... You can solve a two-criteria problem in your hands. I can only say without a hint what was produced in Yugoslavia, Hungary (a shortened version is still in service with the police), China, the DPRK, was in service with Vietnam, the GDR, Cuba, you can google it and compare it by country, piece by piece ...
            And why is the legend of Kalash? Maybe he is simply famous and popular?

                Listen, dear, everything that you wrote, I know a long time ago and I watched the video about which you are talking only it’s not grandfather but rather well-known Hikok 45 ... well, now start from the opposite, namely with Browning Hi-Power and you will understand that it was produced like this but in large numbers and was in service almost everywhere, and even had circuits in the social camp countries ... the fact remains that the high power pistol is a world-class legend that is still in service with many countries and its production has not yet been phased out and enjoys success in both the civilian market and the police, etc. and the TT pistol is a legend for the USSR and has been discontinued long ago unlike the Kh. P .. by the way, in my opinion, no one actually produces TT yet ...

                  The famous Hickock 45, if you trust his authority, claims that the TT was in service with about 50 countries. I at one time came across infa, I agree with him, but I don’t want to confirm as a memory, I remember that even in fascist Germany and Finland until 1951, when they were bought by one American company. Where he is now in arms to find out is futile for the subject of our conversation. You do not have to take my word for it, but few people know that in Russia we do not have a single law enforcement agency where the TT would not officially be in service. I do not want to scour the Internet, there alone proved it by listing the departmental documents, where indicated. For other countries, analyzing this is generally a complete kikos. Where is the TT produced now? Not sure where, I think in Romania, North Korea, China. There is no desire to look, just like you, where Nye Power continues to be produced, I think that there are also few where in the form of compilations.
                  Our debate was originally a dead end. I was aggravated by the categorical nature of your statement in the question, the answer to which we do not know without special research. And I was already embarrassed by the blind admiration of the West, and the evaluation criteria are also vague: Mauser K-96, if memory serves, legend or not? Churchill's favorite pistol, claim that he had a complete collection of all modifications. It was widely distributed in many countries. Officially was not in service anywhere.

    It is a pity, with the cessation of the release of High Power, the whole era is gone. But John Moses Browning with his first pistol set the tone for all the “pistols” for a century ahead.
    As there was:
    "The toy is small and cute in appearance,
    And he lies on the floor lifeless.
    Browning ... Browning ... Browning ...
    From a small hole at the end of the trunk
    Death comes, small and sweet ... "
    (Alas, I don’t remember the author)
    As for the incomprehensible why of the legendary TT, it is simply an unsuccessful copy of the same Browning. Not without reason in the late thirties it was actually adopted and only the war broke all plans and prevented the mass production of a new pistol.

    But the guy (dauria) in the photo, in my opinion, is Anfield's "Jungle Carbine", but I'm not sure that the muzzle end is not visible. Tap flash suppressor should be a bell, similar to our DP. good

      I really apologize, but what kind of Browning are we talking about in this case, moreover, the TT was an unsuccessful copy of it? In the late thirties actually adopted the High Power? They couldn’t, it’s a 9 mm caliber, and by that time it was expensive to drill barrels with a caliber different from a rifle. Well, I can’t enter and why TT is a copy of Browning arr. 1903 (see archive of VO). This browning has long failed to meet military requirements, a free shutter, a weak cartridge. You don’t know in what conditions the Soviet designer-gunsmith made decisions, there weren’t such ones in the West: conflicting tasks were set - cheaply, reliably, and with the required combat characteristics. High carbon steels - only for critical parts, alloyed steels do not apply at all ...
      Yes, you take this Browning 1903 and squander the chamber under 9x19 Luger and from the first shot in your hands only the frame remains. On the TT, you can put a removable barrel under 9x19 and will work like a clock. I don’t know how else to get through that this is a different weapon.
      Why is the TT legendary? Yes, because it is a weapon of victory. Make him a shutter clutch, like the Hungarian Tokajipts, remove the external bolt delay spring, change the design (ergonomics) of the handle and improve the magazine latch - there will be another machine.

    Price and quality killed. At the price of a very expensive 1200 Euro Glock 600 bucks. It is made with very high quality and released in 1935 still work perfectly, those who really want take BU and there are a lot of them. They are produced a lot where and under license and so.
