The Hi-Power Returns with Interest

On the heels of perhaps the oddest release of a product nobody asked for, Springfield Armory is releasing a retro product that is making everyone happy.

The Model SA-35 is the Iconic Browning Hi-Power for the masses and honestly it looks fantastic.

It is a classic.

My bad, it is an… Icon?

It became the quiet companion of the M1911 and the standard of a double stack 9mm handgun. With SA bringing it back into larger production, a healthy aftermarket for working on them, and a incredibly high demand in the industry for the ‘iconics’ the SA-35 is well placed to succeed in the market.

I wouldn’t doubt seeing a modern take or two in the future from Springfield Armory too. The fact that the website lists the section as the ‘SA-35 SERIES’ is a strong supporter of that supposition also.

Well done, Springfield. Well done indeed.
