New Hudson H9 promises striker-fired 9mm with 1911-style trigger (VIDEO)

Hudson Manufacturing is set to debut their flagship pistol, a full-sized 9mm semi-auto that blends striker-fired reliability with a crisp 1911 trigger.

With an unloaded weight of some 34-ounces, a barrel length of 4.28-inches and a short-take up trigger with a 4.5-5 lbs. break, the H9 pistol is pushing deep into the envelope of John Browning’s famous GI longslide.

However, the unconventional nose profile, low bore axis, accessory rail, 15-shot double stack mag and striker-fired design brings something new to the standard 1911 table.

Hudson also promises their H9 to be readily convertible, offering a reversible magazine release to complement the ambi slide releases, configurable thumb safeties and interchangeable grips to swap out their standard G10 panels.

MSRP is $1,147 and Hudson is set to make the official debut at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
