On The Range: EAA Corp. Girsan MC P35

posted on January 20, 2022

In 2018, Browning shocked the firearm community with the announcement that it would cease production of its Hi Power, which had been in production since the design's iteration in the 1930s. Soon thereafter, though, new-production examples of the High Power began appearing on the market, with many coming from Turkish gunmakers. European American Armory Corp. is one of the leaders in this category, and its Girsan MC P35 is a faithful homage to John Browning's original design.

The EAA Corp. Girsan MC P35 is built on an all-steel frame and slide available in three different matte finish options. There's an all-black pistol, a dark-earth option and a two-tone variant with a gray frame mated to a matte-black slide. The guns are true to later commercial models of the Browning Hi Power, featuring the same Series 80 firing system, external extractor, rowel hammer, well-contoured bilateral thumb safety lever and iconic slide profile. The Girsan is equipped with highly visible three-dot sights, and the rear sight is drift-adjustable for windage. There's a traditionally finished slim trigger bow, as well as a generously textured set of polymer grip panels.

Unlike the original Hi Powers, these Girsan MC P35 pistols ship with a single 15-round magazine made by Mec-Gar of Italy, which gives owners two extra rounds of 9 mm Luger over the traditional Hi Power magazine. Suggested retail pricing on these new-production High Power clones is $567. For more information, visit eaacorp.com.
