    The Hi-Power is back

    Actually, it never left, but many people are not aware that Turkish gunmaker Tisas Trabzon was offering a Hi-Power clone even before FN ended production of the Hi-Power.

    Tisas pistols are now imported by European American Armory (EAA). EAA has just issued a press release to publicize their Hi-Power offering:

    As it happens, M1911.ORG knew about this pistol several years ago. We gave it a mention in our report on the 2018 SHOT Show:

    Tisas had on display several models that appeared to be their own designs but the non-1911 pistol that may be of the most interest to M1911.org readers was a nice-looking clone of the venerable Hi-Power. Designated the ZIG 14, this looks to be a very good copy of the John Browning-Dieudonne Saive masterpiece. Unfortunately, there isn’t much information available about this pistol. It doesn’t appear in the printed catalog, suggesting that it may be a new model. It is available only in 9mm and there appears to be only one version, in black chrome with nicely executed wood grip panels.

    I have been trying to just handle one since their inception, but they are invisible here in the Midwest!

    The early run of Tisas HP's seemed to be OK, but later on there were more than a few problem guns. To my knowledge they were all made good by replacement under warranty, but it was a SIGNIFICANT step down in quality compared to the Tisas 1911 the market had become familiar with.

    Going farther back, they were available in Canada before the US.

    Let's hope Girsan has a better run at it
