The Hi-Power is back!
« on: October 25, 2021, 07:00:08 PM »
Springfield Armory is releasing the new SA35, the "Queen of the Nines". Real sights, no mag safety, better safety and redesigned hammer to eliminate hammer bite. And for $699!

That seems like a nice gun for a good price, if you can find one.

It appears they all went directly to the auction sites.

Recently procured one. It was easy, I work a gun counter these days and check in the inventory. I "poached" the first one. $588 out the door. Runs like a dream, absolutely the best out of the box gun I have ever owned. Springfield did their homework on this one!

It looks great, but I bet it still bites my hand.  I've always wondered why they don't just extend the tang.

I haven't seen one loose in the wild yet, perhaps a good thing for my wallet.

I do have two Springfield products, the above EMP made 6 /2020,
 I grabbed at my frendly LGS on consignment. (PO had traded it in for a Hellcat)
and a 1911 Milspec made 12/2015 I'm quite fond of.

I also have a Browning like, MAB PA15 Military which was originally purchased in a US Army PX Heidelberg, Germany 1981.
I'll treasure, it was the last trade with my late best friend just days before he passed . :(
MAB PA 15  Controls are Browning Hi-power like,  in fact FN Herstal owned financial interest in MAB.

If they only came in .45 I might get one.

Well, you need "something" in 9mm just so when the apocalypse comes you will be able to shoot any 9mm ammo you come across.  :D  Right now my only 9mm is a Keltec P11.  Thinking I need a 9mm 1911, but then I've never shot a Hi-Power.  I should try one out some day.  Had a CZ75B once that was super-reliable.

I never had a 9mm until a few years ago. I committed a sin by building a 9mm 1911 out of Rock Island slide & frame, the guts are Wilson Combat. It shoots very nice. Since then I bought a Sig 226 and the SA-35. I cast all my own bullets for the ammo. I enjoy shooting the round, but I agree, there is no replacement for displacement. ;D

I saw an article lately, FN is producing High Power's again too, but they're "new and improved" so maybe the Springfield version is more true to the original design.

I understand the FN is priced almost twice as much. I don't see how it can be twice as good as the Springfield. We shall see.
