upcoming Springfield Armory P-35 Hi Power Login/Join

Someone made mention of the designations "Hi-Power" and "High Power" for the good old P35. I seem to remember that both were used but not sure by whom or where. Does anyone else recall seeing these variations? IIRC, "Hi-Power" was written with the hyphen, whereas "High Power" was not.

Every manufacturer is an assembler of sorts. Who makes the MR223 parts for H&K in Georgia? Not H&K, it's Wilcox. Same OEM who makes most of the stuff for SigSauer in NH. Colt isn't doing things in-house, either whether it be a CR6920 or their "retro" line of Vietnam Series made by US Armament (who by the way, makes a nice rifle and also nice Colt 1903 pistols and lots of other Colt pattern things).

I bought a "Czech" waffle stock for my Bren 2 rifle to replace the one that came in my 922r kit from CZ USA. Where was the one made in my 922r kit? The parts came from a subcontracted OEM in Brazil. So, assembled in the US into a US component from small parts made wherever.

This is the way of modern, high volume CNC manufacturing. Long gone are the days where raw materials go in one door and highly skilled artisans hand-fit components into heirloom quality guns going out the other door on the far side of the building.

I'm not interested in getting this.

I know there is a lot of hate thrown at Springfield these days and I'm not saying that they didn't do some shitty things. But all gun companies do. Maybe not intentionally, but they do. Sig is my favorite company but they knew about the 320 issues and left them out there until they couldn't avoid it any more. And that's just one example. My Springfield Mil Spec from their Defender line is a first rate 1911. I don't care where they got the parts, it just runs like a clock. I'll give the HP35 a shot. Bet it works just fine.

not sure myself, guessing would need to look for FN or Browning advertisements from the past,

either way the HP is a translation from Grande puissance or GP35

I haven't finished viewing it, but sootch00 has a review and 1K round test video up on the SA-35.

ETA: Sootch also had extraction problems, as Para and others have noted other reviewers are experiencing. Disappointing, but I hope the "bugs" are ironed out soon. Maybe slow production down a bit, a little more polishing here and there, better extractor and springs...

Failures to extract- that's the issue I'm seeing online about this pistol.

I don't know if High Power parts are still available in the US from FN or Browning, but if I were to purchase one of these pistols, the first thing I would do would be to change the extractor spring and possibly the extractor as well.

Also, I might be inclined to take some Simichrome or Flitz on a patch and proper-sized bore swab and ever so gently give the chamber a slight polish.

Factory BHP extractors and springs are available, at least for now.

I like Sootch. I watch his videos even if I have no interest in the gun he's reviewing. I especially like when he includes the bloopers. It shows the effort he makes to produce high quality videos.

About this video, he experiences a few problems, dismisses them, and then expresses relief he didn't get a lot of problems.

Yes, that's my benchmark for a defensive pistol- "not a lot of problems."

I am getting the impression SA, Inc's version of this classic pistol is not quite up to the standards of the original. Some minor tweaking might get it to that point.

Yes. I want one of these. But I can certainly wait until the buying insanity dies down and they work out the inevitable bugs that come from a new introduction, no matter how old the design.
