More Information
During World War II the Ordnance Division of the John Inglis Company of Toronto, Ontario became one of the largest ordnance factories in the British Empire, occupying a floor area of nearly one million square feet.

Among its many highly specialised products, critically important to the Allied war effort, were approximately 150,000 examples of the excellent 9mm Inglis Browning High Power pistol, contracted initially for the Nationalist Chinese.

From the collector's standpoint, the Inglis Browning High Power is an ideal subject for study. It was Canada's first (and indeed only) mass-produced handgun, in production for a very brief span of time and consequently made in relatively few numbers. Nevertheless, Inglis pistols exist in four basic model/marks, within which can be found a complex and often bewildering variety of markings, some of which have never been satisfactorily explained to this day.

This well-researched new title, designed as a companion volume to R. Blake Stevens' classic The Browning High Power Pistol, sheds more light than ever before on the robust, reliable Inglis Browning, which has provided over half a century of sterling service in numerous armies and still remains the officially adopted sidearm of the Canadian Forces.
