Daniel Defense Re-Releases the H9 (Previously From Hudson)


The Hudson H9 was/is one of my favorite pistols. I was extremely disappointed when the company went bankrupt not far out of the gate. They suffered supplier and other logistical issues that caused them to run out of cash and fold.

The good news is that Daniel Defense purchased the rights to the H9 pistol during the bankruptcy proceedings and this year at SHOT Show they’ve launched the DANIEL H9.


Daniel Defense has done for the handgun what we did for the AR-style rifle—taken it to a whole new level. Our revolutionary DANIEL H9 combines the ergonomics and pointability of a 1911 with the easy shooting and maintenance of a striker-fired pistol. A low bore axis reduces recoil and muzzle-flip for faster, more accurate follow-up shots.

A modular design enables easy customization, and a 1911-style straight-pullback trigger with safety blade provides precision control and safer operation. Customizable, ambidextrous controls deliver superb ergonomics and maneuverability, and an aircraft-grade-aluminum frame keeps things light but extremely durable. Experience the same, legendary, made-in-America quality you expect from Daniel Defense only in a smaller package. Like everything we sell, our new H9  is backed by Daniel’s 100% Satisfaction guarantee.
