Unveiled to the firearm world in 2017 at SHOT Show, the Hudson H9 made an impression in the firearms industry with their unique performance, styling and characteristics. After three years of development, the Hudson H9 holds multiple patent pending features in the pistol design which successfully combines the characteristics of a 1911 style pistol with that of a modern striker fired handgun. The most notable feature is the placement of the recoil rod and spring; right in front of the trigger guard. The positioning of the recoil spring allows the barrel to sit at an extremely low bore axis which changes the recoil characteristic to straight back rather than up and over for a much lower perceived recoil impulse and reduced muzzle flip. This contributes to the Hudson H9's unparalleled precision as well as impressive speed for follow-up shots. Aiding in the Hudson H9's performance is its remarkable 1911 style trigger. Going off the mindset that a pistol is only as good as its trigger, Hudson decided to go with arguably the best trigger out of any handgun in the world. The well-tuned 1911 style trigger of the Hudson H9 offers a short take up, a crisp break with no overtravel, and an incredibly short and tactile reset. The patent pending trigger safety is instinctively engaged and does not take away from the smooth straight trigger pull. Rounding out the rest of the pistols impressive features is the overall feel of the gun in hand, from its ambidextrous operation to the guns profile. The overall profile of the Hudson H9 is very thin and compact for a full size duty pistol; the grips are no thicker than that of a single stack 1911 but are able to house a double stack 9mm magazine.
Us here at EMG were so impressed with how the real-life Hudson H9 felt and performed, we just had to bring this magnificent pistol to the Airsoft market. Following our strict guidelines and emphasis for accuracy of the product to its real-life counterpart as well as performance in Airsoft, we have collaborated with Hudson Mfg. directly to make this project happen. Going off the original specs and diagrams for the Hudson H9, we have been able to precisely design an Airsoft version of the gun that is a true 1:1 size that will look and feel exactly like the real thing. Additionally features such as the amazing feeling trigger, and the recoil impulse carries over very well to the EMG Airsoft Training version of the Hudson H9.

"To start this off, I am quite new to Airsoft but I am not new to guns.
This H9 clone is a nice piece of hardware. Size and shape match up to a 9mm Hudson very well. Grips panels will interchange between my Hudson H9 and this airsoft version, so you can install VZ grips on this gun. I do not know if the sights will swap, but that is on the list. Take-down is identical to the original as well.
This airsoft pistol is not as "tight" as my H9, but it is not any looser than a Glock or M&P or other service pistol. It handles very well, the weight is just a bit light compared the H9, but it does weigh about the same as an aluminum version of that pistol would.
I like this thing and will picking up another one as funds permit. Buying a 2nd H9 with a threaded barrel this week tapped out the fun money for a bit.
"I like the gun for the most part. Only things I really don't like, is I can't seem to be able to even go through a full mag without the grass running out. Maybe it's just the mag buy without getting another mag, I won't be able to tell. The other thing is the beaver tail safety doesn't actually work. Again, maybe it's mine I'm unsure.
"It's decently well-made - the OEM is WE, and they make some really nice GBBs. The ergonomics are cool and the balance is excellent. It's also pretty light - mine is 27.7 ounces with a mag, Hogue grip sleeve, and small laser module attached. Without those extras, it's significantly lighter than even a Glock 19 GBB. I had to add the Hogue grip sleeve because I have big hands and the H9 has a very small and squared off grip. There are no aftermarket grip options for the H9 that remedy this, so if you have big hands, definitely think about getting a grip sleeve.
The gun (much like the real H9) has the sights set up for a 12 o'clock hold (meaning you hit at the bottom of the front sight post). This is less than ideal, because you can't see where the BB is hitting without breaking sight picture and looking up over the gun.
Another issue is that the hop up is incredibly weak. Even dialed all the way up with 0.25s, the BB is still arcing down past 40 feet. I was able to remedy this by poking at the top of the hop-up with a punch until it was actually providing some hop. Accuracy is decent, not great, as the tolerances are not particularly tight. I was able to put a couple layers of electrical tape in both the magwell and around the barrel to snug up what were very loose gaps.
Also, the gun comes with a manual safety that you can install on one or both sides of the gun, but no instruction manual explaining it. You have to use the tiny hex wrench provided to loosen a set screw on the right side of the chassis, then pry the metal blocks out to replace them with the safety.
Overall, it's cool to get what's likely a rare gun (since Hudson is bankrupt and the gun is not being produced), but for the price it's not all that good of a GBB. I have a bunch of WE-Tech GBBs that were less than half the price and perform better.
