A famed relic from a long-gone era returns to the American market. SDS Imports and Military Armament Corp (MAC) formed a new exclusive partnership, enabling importation of several models of the iconic Inglis High Power pistol into the United States. Four new High Power pistols will eventually hit the U.S. market in 2024.
Inglis High Power Pistol Details
The first Inglis High Power to return to the U.S. is the L9A1, a World War II-era firearm produced by Inglis. Three additional models, commercial variants, are comprised of a black finish and walnut grips, satin nickel with black G-10 grips or color case-hardened model dubbed the GP-34.
“We’re very excited to be able to partner with Inglis and bring this historic brand back from the dead,” stated Military Armament Corporation/SDS CEO Tim Mulverhill. “The market demand has not been met for historically accurate High Powers. We’re planning for the L9A1 to influence the High-Power market the way the Tisas US Army did in the 1911 market.”
The L9A1 owns a rich heritage among collectors and enthusiasts. It saw action with the British Commonwealth forces from 1962-2013. An electroless nickel “MKIII” version and limited-edition case-hardened model in a wooden presentation case will launch later in 2024, commemorating the reintroduction of the Inglis.

In 2018, Browning announced the end of the famed Hi-Power. Then a funny thing happen; shooters, collectors and the firearms world in general–Browning included–said “No.” The winds shifted and several Hi-Power clones emerged, with new offerings like the Springfield Armory SA-35, Regent BR9, and the FN High Power, among others. Now shooters get a shot at a really unique marital Hi-Power, the Inglis. The Inglis represents a really interesting sub-category of the Hi-Power legend, and getting new shooters back into U.S. circulation, now that’s a big win for everyone.
