upcoming Springfield Armory P-35 Hi Power Login/Join

We had a couple come in late last week; both gone now. Sold them for $679, which to me actually felt price-appropriate if not a little high. It really does seem like a very faithful reproduction of a Hi-Power. The trigger could have used a slightly lighter break; seems too heavy considering that there's no mag disconnect to deal with. The Parkerizing (I think) was ok but nevertheless reminds me a lot of the finish work found on budget Turkish-sourced 1911s. The wood grips added to the Eastern import vibe, or maybe Filipino like low-end Rock Island pistols. Since I have Glock hands, it doesn't point naturally for me but it DOES feel much like my T-series, only missing the smooth bluing that my Browning has.

But this one's a Springfield so I'd more than likely never would buy one out of principle, but I can easily understand why someone might want to. I did however stock up on magazines, especially given the pending Iron Curtain that's about to fall upon WA state.

Our LGS had 3 come in this week, all sold out the same day. He called me, but I had already blown my gun fund on something else, so I didn't get one this go around. His price was $695, which isn't outrageous. He says he has more on order, so we'll see what my financial situation is like when those show up.

I have now seen my second one in-the-wild, locally. Both tagged at MSRP.

Id buy one at $699 MSRP, but I'm not going to pay more than that.

I had a beautiful 75th anniversary Browning HP and a Practical, and sold them both and regret it.

Everywhere I see online is $799, at least at the places I usually buy from

Picked up one at LGS about 6 weeks ago at MSRP. Surprised that they’re still going for over that. Had a Hi Power a while ago, but sold it many years ago. Still had a couple of 13 round mags, though, and fortunately they still work in the SA-35.

I bought one a month ago for $649. One of the local dealers got 5 in and I bought the last one. The price was excellent and I'm very impressed with the gun. Reliable and very accurate....


Character is doing the right thing even when no one else will know...
