SHOT Show 2017 looks like it will be full of great new product releases, but thus far the H9 pistol from Hudson Mfg has piqued my interest the most. See below for more photographs and the full press release for this modern, striker-fired take on the classic 1911…
Hudson Mfg unveils innovative new pistol design; the Hudson H9.
Temple, TX – Hudson Mfg has finally launched the highly anticipated Hudson H9 pistol. The all new Hudson H9 is a firearm that was Engineered to Advance. This pistol combines a 1911 inspired trigger with striker fired reliability and a substantially lower bore axis, resulting in reduced felt recoil and unparalleled precision and accuracy. This new pistol was designed with a distinct focus on the needs of the shooter.
The H9 pistol is the flagship product from Hudson Mfg and is unlike anything else. Forging new ground, this start-up business from Texas is delivering a modern pistol that is inspired by the past and motivated by the future. This pistol has many distinct features with the most notable being the unique profile and incredibly low bore axis. The H9 is constructed of premium quality materials with a stainless-steel slide, insert chassis and barrel chambered in 9mm with a double stack magazine capacity of 15 + 1.
The H9 possesses a 1911-style, single axis, straight pull trigger with an integrated trigger safety. Shooters will be pleased to find that while the H9 by Hudson was inspired by the classic 1911, it shares characteristics with modern pistols with its striker fired design and does not have a grip or backstrap safety. Its unique collection of characteristics make the Hudson H9 practical in its delivery yet advanced in its design and accommodates any shooter.
This pistol delivers unrivaled modularity. With ambidextrous slide stop levers and a reversible magazine catch, the H9 is great for left or right-handed shooters. For the true 1911 purist, the trigger of the H9 can be replaced with a Hudson trigger that does not contain the integrated trigger safety. Additionally, Hudson external thumb safeties can be easily added to allow a user to run the pistol much more like a traditional 1911.
The H9 by Hudson contains premium features and components from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers. The front sight of the H9 is a Trijicon HD. The premium G10 grip panels have been designed and manufactured by VZ. The textured lower back strap is designed and manufactured by Hogue out of G10 material. The premium Blacknitride finishing will be provided by H&M Metal Processing.
By all accounts, the Hudson H9 will make its impact and presence felt in the firearms industry. Be sure to stop by and visit Hudson Mfg at Industry Day at the Range bay SR-36 as well as SHOT Show booth #1118 to check out the all new H9 pistol.
