POTD: The Springfield Armory SA-35

    SA-35 Springfield Hi-Power

    Photo Of The Day: Last week Springfield Armory announced their new SA-35, but we missed one great picture – the one above! This is Springfield Armory’s version of the Browning P-35, also known as the Hi-Power. It features improved ergonomics with a remade hammer, extended safety and modern sights. It also comes reasonably priced with an MSRP of $699.

    Made out of steel and wood, this upgrade of the original John Moses Browning’s design is sure to attract a lot of fans of classic handguns. Note also the double-edged Fairbairn–Sykes fighting knife and the brass knuckles.

    From Springfield Armory’s description:
    It’s had many names in its century-old history and today, we reimagine this renowned design for modern use. Based on one of the most prolific and popular pistols in small arms history, the Springfield Armory® SA-35 gives today’s shooters a modern take on a revered design. Featuring subtle but significant upgrades to John Moses Browning’s original P-35, the 9mm SA-35 captures the appeal of the “wood and steel” era of arms making while offering the upgraded enhancements of today’s defensive pistols. Made in the U.S.A., the SA-35 features rugged forged steel parts for strength and durability, improved ergonomics and enhanced controls, modern sights, an improved feed ramp design, and an increased 15-round capacity. The factory-tuned trigger benefits greatly from the removal of the magazine disconnect found in the original P-35 design allowing for a smooth pull and crisp, clean break. Call it a legend, call it an icon, but whatever you do, don’t call it a classic.
