New Browning High Power?

Post by Florey55 » 23 May 2024, 7:47 am

Just been looking at Cleaver's website and the have the new production Browning High Power listed - but this is listed as being 'prohibited in NSW'.

Why, oh why?

It's most likely the magazine that the FNH High Power uses that's banned.

NSW has restrictions on the ways that a larger capacity magazine can be restricted to 10 rounds if they consider it too easy to revert it back to original capacity.

It's not a Browning, it is Fabrique National's new remake of the GP35 and listed under FN handguns. The barrel is 120mm, but the original mag is 17 rounds and probably pinned to 10, so rc42 would be on the money about how NSW determine mag capacity restricting.
