Hudson H9 - 9x19mm Parabellum

The Hudson H9 is a steel-framed 9x19mm handgun manufactured by Hudson Manufacturing of Temple, Texas. It is an M1911-based design, albeit striker-fired rather than the standard hammer setup, and with a rather interesting system wherein the barrel and recoil spring are set far lower than on a typical handgun, which (in combination with the aforementioned striker-fired operation) allows for a lower-than-typical bore axis, and a corresponding reduction in muzzle flip; this is also why the pistol's dustcover is level with the bottom of the trigger guard.

All this, coupled with some other enticing features (configurable safety setups, ambidextrous controls, illuminated 3-dot sights, etc.) made the pistol quite promising; however, the announcement of an aluminum-framed variant known as the H9A before it was actually ready for mass-production drew away many prospective buyers, forcing Hudson to file for bankruptcy in March 2019.

An overhauled version of the H9 was introduced by Daniel Defense in 2024.
