EAA goes Detective, err, we mean PI

Florida’s EAA has hit the sweet spot when it comes to Browning Hi-Power clones in the past couple of years, introducing both classically-styled and more modern takes on the vintage platform that FN walked away from only a half-decade ago.

One of the missed opportunities the Belgians never took was shortening the Hi-Power akin to what Colt did with the 1911 Commander. The closest thing to a Commander-ized Hi-Power was the Argentine-made FM Detective which was marketed here in the 1990s.
