I was browsing articles are hardairmagazine and they had these teaser photos of a new EKOL Co2 pistol that looks alot more like a Browning Hi-power than the EKOL ES-66 does!

BDA clone~ huge difference between the Hi-Power and BDA series.

Any replica of the Hi-Power should be in pellet, just for my liking, and non-D/A....

Edit: just went to the Browning site and the Hi-Power is no longer in production :cry:
Sad end to an utterly reliable pistol...

Yeah I'm shocked they never made a pellet Hi Power.

Don't say that too loud. Canadian Army sent shooters down to the States, for a pistol competition. They brought 20 guns. 15 jammed, so bad before the match. That they could not be used, And had to carry on, using only 5 guns.

Hopefully they work better than these.

If you set your targets up in front of a barn you might get lucky and actually hit the barn.
Ekol BB guns are notorious for poor accuracy. The one I had would not hit a pop can at 16 feet.

Only joking. It is embrassing though. Guess that's expected with government procurement policies.
Send someone with a Ford Escort to compete with a GT40.

The army "competition" guns were likely Inglises.

Carried and shot a Belgian bought new in the 80's, and fed it some pretty rank home cast cone type boolets at varying power levels. It took a heck of a lot of work to force a jam- the only way I could do it was with squibs.... Mine was decently accurate, especially with carefully rolled home hand-loads.
From what I've read , a few of the Inglis were pretty generous when it came to finished tolerances...
