Hudson H9 1911

Unveiled at the 2017 Shot Show (with very limited availability as of March 2018), the Hudson H9 was voted Readers' Choice Best New Handgun of 2017 by TTAG (The Truth About Guns).

The H9 is a modern high-capacity striker-fired design, but with a 1911-style trigger.  It features a very low bore axis made possible by placing the recoil spring directly in front of the trigger instead of within the barrel assembly above the trigger.  This lower bore axis results in minimum recoil rise, which in turn results in very rapid target reacquisition after firing.

Hudson H9's elegant simplicity and cutting-edge design is united in a stunning example of modern weaponry. It features an all steel frame with a black finish, 1911-style straight-pull trigger, trigger safety, G10 VZ interchangeable grip panels, and an accessory rail for aftermarket lights or lasers. The unconventional nose of the pistol allows for the barrel and recoil spring to sit drastically lower and closer to the hand than heritage designs. This, coupled with its striker-fired design, creates an extremely low bore axis which reduces torque about the wrist when firing and contributes to unparalleled precision in the shot process. This model includes three 15-round 9mm magazines.
