Product Information:
Liked an ambidextrous safety for the left-handed crowd, but not a dealbreaker.
Liked to have had a more typical rear sight/front sight arrangement than the tangent-type.
After recently putting 5 magazines (100 Crosman .20gr 6mm BBs) down the pipe I have learned a few things. It does get dirty after a few magazines. The slide gets sluggish (ok, I watched a few vids on airsoft pistol maintenance, including the AirSoftGI one) and really need to better lightly lubricate it. I lube same points as a regular pistol - rails, barrel link, barrel hood (at muzzle) and slide stop.
There's a lot of talk about the lack of hop-up on the Hi-Power. Well, I can tell you, if you put an Allen key into the set-screw *towards the muzzle end* and loosen it, you'll be removing the barrel from the barrel block! the little rubber piece used for "hop-up" is inside that barrel block! Remove the barrel in this manner, and you can more easily clean it out with a rod and patches. (Ask me how I know . . .) As for the bottom hole towards the breech end (rear hole) no doings anything on my pistola; nothing there to turn/adjust.

Final Thoughts :
The Browning GP-35 Hi-Power 9mm Parabellum was the first handgun I ever shot. That was why I chose to buy it as my first AirSoft Gas Blowback pistol.

Pros:
Grip shape.
20-round capacity.
40-shots to a fill on propane/Spray Silicone @ 55-degrees.

Cons:
Fussy re-assembly.
Tri-angular front sight.
No written Manual came with the gun.
Propane smell in basement when shooting; needs adequate forced ventilation.

Product Information:
I got this pistol because I have a FM-90 Hi-Power, and so far it is authentic in almost every way


Pros:
It feels like the real Hi-Power

The field strip is also is authentic

Everything is pretty much exactly like the original


Cons:
The front sight came off right out of the box but was extremely easy to but back on

Product Information:
I've had this pistol for two years now and it still works as well as it did the day I bought it. I've performed regular maintenance on it during its "service life", but nothing drastic. This is a replica of what is usually referred to (possibly erroneously) as the "Inglis Hi-Power", with the rear tangent sight optimistically graduated to 500 meters. The replica even includes the slot in the rear of the grip which functioned as an attachment point for a wooden shoulder stock. I am disappointed, however, in that no lanyard loop is present.

Comparing it to my real Hi-Power, the weight and general "feel" of the replica gun is fairly similar. It has the usual wobble associated with a $100 WE gas blow-back. The pistol has a magazine safety (the gun cannot be fired without a magazine inserted), which is a hold-over from the real life design.

I've shot many people with it and am generally satisfied. As a "historical airsofter", I'm grateful that WE has chosen to replicate the Hi-Power as it's a ubiquitous weapon that has seen service from its invention in the 1930s all the way up to the present day.

Pros:
Historically significant; the first usable replica of a firearm that has seen extensive and widespread use
Weight/feel is accurate to the original example in my collection
Crisp blowback action (to be expected)

Cons:
Heavy trigger (10+ lbs?)
Wobbly construction (to be expected of a $100 WE replica)
No lanyard loop
Magazines are finicky (like all GBB magazines)
