If you’re going to have an all-steel single action handgun in 9mm, I vote Hi-Power over 1911.
Double stack, higher capacity, no grip safety, overall sleeker profile. And a few other reasons why I like it better.

Now if you’re talking .45 acp, make mine the 1911😎

Have some affection for the Hi-Power. Respect for 1911. Agree with @Comanchero45 each is best with it’s native cartridge. At least they’re both steel.

Before the flaming starts, I own a 'Drastic Plastic 40 CZ P09.

come on no decision to be made - the first wonder nine before the wonder nine was even thought about.
FN GP35 all the way (Browning Hipower)

P35 for me in a SA handgun. But mind you I wouldn’t turn my nose up at a 1911 in 9mm flavor if someone wanted to give me one (my birthday is coming up gents!). But P35s are prone to breakage, so I’ve heard, so I have been known to shoot a plastic wonder 9 in competition.

Question for those who like the P35… is your mag safety removed? I’m betting that it is.

Are you inferring the Hi-Power is on a par with the Hi-Point?

Doth thou taketh John Moses Browning’s last contribution to the shooting world and besmirch it publicly?

Sacrilege! Away I say! To the stocks with you!

JMB liked the Hi Power and 9mm more than the 1911 in .45 ACP, Why is it the Canadian (srdiver) and mjrfd99 are the only ones that get it?
