Which one would you pick, ignoring the caliber?
Hi-power. If you ignore the caliber the 1911 doesn't have any advantages.
Except for a trigger reset. While I love my HP, the lack of trigger reset really keeps me from becoming proficient with it. Now my 1911, I love that trigger ~3.5 lbs of smooth goodness. If I could get a 1911-like trigger reset on my HP then I'd agree with you 100%
who are you and why are you asking all the question I am thinking?
I'm trying to get one of my grandfather's hand guns either a browning high power 9mm or a colt 45 1911
whichever one felt better in my hand
Well the trigger break and travel is nice, but it's the reset that's hard for me to get over. Although the trigger on my FN is a little strong at 7 lbs.
I love Hi powers, I plan to find a good one,
as far as 1911's go, they are great but other than my kimber, id take a good Hi-power over a 1911. (shot placement > power)
and I shoot better with 9mm.
Hi-Power, mainly because I like the way it feels in my hand better.
hi-power for sure
Easier to take apart.
Prefer grip safety over magazine safety.
I have both, but prefer shooting the 1911.
