I did find that the 9mm wouldn't do metal popper plates that good, sometimes requiring 4-5 shots to drop them, thats why I also used my own hand loaded ammo, more punch cause I added a few grains more powder then factory ammo.

Col. Thumper, does your display pic mean that you were or are with the JTF?

I think any operator, past or present, would have better things to do than hang around an airsoft forum so the answer is 'No'.

I had 3 worn out brownings years ago.

I liked the size - compact compared to most modern nines.

But they were old and beat so they had issues............and I hated the safety.

A historic sidearm ............1st double column magazine high capacity auto.

The CF use either the Browning Hi-Power 9mm, which is being phased out due to its age, or the SIG P225, which is essentially the same as a P228. I'm not sure as to whether they use the railed frame or standard frame, but I'm quite sure there are some P225's in service.

the p228 is a compact version of the p226

the p225 is a compact version of the sig p220

Oh that's correct because the P225 is single stack, the P228 is double stack. If you want one for airsoft though, there's no P225.

the hi power is being phased out for the sig. The brownings the cf have are just getting old and need to be replaced, they are a good gun but as thungs age they tend to wear out. The cf decide to upgrade to newer modern weopon instead of trying to use the old browning, I for one would sooner have the new sidearm with me in a combat sityation then an old one that has feed problems.

Anyway -- Speaking more about airsoft.

I've played with the Tanaka Browning Hi-power Canadian version... It's a decent gun... Although I would REALLY have preferred if they made that one in heavy weight version.

My only beef with it is that it feels kinda light and the blow-back isn't as satisfying as it is on other GBB's.

I fired one not to long ago it was a great little gun, I found it extremely accurate for a sidearm.

CF uses Browning Hi Power, Sig Sauer P225. No rails on the P225.

P226 is also in service, I'm not sure if it is railed or not. Might be though as I've seen a pic of it with a light on it.

I can only speak for the navy but I know we use the railed P226.
