The new rifle is fast becoming a favorite, It's not the go to my Ar 15 is But a niche it more than has. If the weather is improved today I'd like to take a drive and go finish fine tuning it. She's a 20 incher I put a 4.5x12 scope on it

A trigger upgrade is in the offing and a new fore end but not much else mod wise. If all goes according to plan I'll be able to finish fine tuning it today. Get the zero locked in. It's a tad on the heavy side but not uncomfortably so and I do believe I'll hunt with it this year. I haven't had a chance to really do much besides initial sighting in but I've got it set and holding the X at 200 yards. So far I'm favorably impressed.

The SA 35. LOL what can I say. It's the first 9mm anything I've owned since 1988 and it will remain a solo flyer in my rack. I got eide of my last 9 all those years ago and said then and plenty in between that if I ever did get another 9 it would be a Hi Power P 35. O made good on that promise. It's my primary carry pistol now. 9mm defensive ammunition has come a long way and the thing is a dream to shoot. It comes to point great for me and the grip fits my hand perfect. Recovery time to follow up shotrs is nothing. After so many decades of a 45 ACP both felt and perceived recoil are a nothing burger as well. The controls and overall feel is close enough to a 1911 they're muscle memory and it's a LOT cheaper to practice.

Me packing a 9mm as a primary carry piece is nothing short of miraculous. LOL but I did stick to my guns (iterally) in what that 9 would be if it wound up there. It puts them CoM rapid fire at 15 yards all day and I do believe I'll hang on to it. Oh i'm hardly retiring my 1911 carry piece but it is getting a major upgrade. It's a Commander light Weight and it's getting a full size steel frame. for competition use. Get some weight on that girl. She bites a bit with carry ammo and I don't want to do a lot of shooting with the LW frame anyway. I have seen these Colts crack on a steady diet of full power ammo.

I'm overall very satisfied with both these firearms and I demand a lot from my guns. These ctwo pulled it off. The SA 35 is a comforting feeling onmy hip and it like the Commander conceals and carries quite comfortably. If you're a single action auto fan in your pistols this one won't do you wrong.

Pics would be nice.
Especially of the SA 35.
Closest pistol I had to that was the CZ75….
Gifted it to my son for Christmas.

I've heard nothing but good things about Springfields SA-35. so much so that I gave in and bought one yesterday. What I really like is the extended safety MUCH better than the original Browing, which I had years ago and sold. About the only thing I'd do to the SA-35 is add extended controls to the slide and mag release, maybe add a beavertail. I did that to my Tisas version of the Hi Power with good results.

Its just a 1911.. I always liked a then but not practical in modern warfare. Functional yes, I wouldn't spend the money on one. Why do you like them? That CZ looks a LOT better IMO. I get the nam vet trained on it aspect but not sure what else.

Who did you use to add the beavertail?

I just picked up the Springfield SA-35 and I believe its better than the original Browning version.
Now if only I could find a 3 inch 1911 for my collection!

I decided against adding a beavertail. But I'd use a local gunsmith I've used for the last 15 years. I had considered adding one to the Tisas/Regent HP clone but he told me the frame needed machining and the cost would be in the 300-400 bucks range and I'm not putting that much $$ in a clone.

I had my SA-35 out for an extended range test earlier today. I was wary of hammer/slide bite as I sometimes grip too high on the frame. Didn't happen during the trip and I shot 300 rounds without any malf's. This one's a keeper but I want to run a few hundred more rounds thru it before carrying it. She came with one 15 round mag and FedEx just dropped off a box with two more. I might go for extended controls on the slide and mag release. Thats as far as I'll go on a carry gun. Trigger break is crisp with minimal pretravel but I haven't put a trigger pull gauge on it yet.

I run magtech magazines in the Tisas/Regent HP clone and I have no reason to think the Springfield will be any different.

Sorry, I was asking about your Tisas. Didn’t you say that you added a beavertail to it, and considered it for your SA-35?

I had considered it for the Tisas, but I found the cost prohibitive. A range trip with the SA-35 proved no hammer bite, so no reason to add one.
