I know I'm a broken record by singing its praises, but the first recognized double stack was, I believe, the Browning Hi Power (hence the "hi power"). The CZ is just an offshoot of the Browning. A nice offshoot, but basically a modified copy nonetheless.

This still unclear. Are you saying the CZ75 was the first double column, hi capacity 9mm? If so, that statement is incorrect. The Browning/FN P35 (Hi-Power takes that prize). Hint, the "35" in it's name gives away the date of adoption.

But my question was whether or not anyone could beat the Savage 1917 for "earliest double stacked" magazine. I don't think it can be beat.

Wasn't an earlier version of that in competition with the 1911 for the original US army contract?

The 1907 Gov't trials .45's were not hi capacity. They were tested from, I believe, 1907-1911. However, the 1907, chambered in .32 was a staggered column magazine holding 10 or 11 rds, mine always held 11. This same pistol was the one re-introduced in 1920 as the model 1917.

anything over .45 here is banned in a handgun.
That's why I am getting one in 9mm.

Take heed guys...the way things are looking this could be us pretty soon.

I don't know where you are, but AMMO is in excellent supply here in the D/FW area. Even 223 is available although it's harder to find right now. But, all handgun ammo is virtually everywhere. I've been stock-piling ammo for about 11 months now, and I have approx. 3000 rounds for each caliber.

This was a HUGE investment! I hope it pays off in the next 4 years...

Well I now have a 1911 on layby at my local gunshop but not a norinco. For an extra couple hundred i got i stainless Springfield instead! Already has the good sights that were gonna cost 150 extra and NO play in the slide unlike the Chinese gun. Cannot wait to pick it up when the permit goes through!
