Once not so long ago, we all thought the Browning Hi-Power was dead. In 2018, Browning announced the end of FN-produced Hi-Power production, marking the end of a remarkable era in pistols. But then a funny thing happened. The shooting public and gun nerds everywhere willed it back into production. Soon FN and Springfield Armory began cranking out Hi-Powers once more. So, too, did Girsan, imported by EAA. Now the EAA Girsan MC P35 PI brings a new twist on the classic that just won’t go gentle into that good night.

EAA Girsan MC P35 PI Details
EAA might just be doing more to keep the Hi-Power alive as any company. It now imports five different variants based on the Hi-Power design, including the MC P35 Match/OPS, Gold Engraved, an OPS Optic and the original MC P35. Now the MC P35 PI joins the fold, bringing a compact-size steel pistol on a steel frame.
The MC P35 PI (Private Investigator) brings a classically-styled version of the Hi-Power. This one comes with a 3.88-inch barrel, ambidextrous safety and traditional, three-dot sights. A compact configuration, the MCP 35 PI owns traits suitable for a wide range of usage, including duty to concealed carry. It should comprise a highly shootable platform as well. You could target shoot or use as a bedside gun with equal confidence.
“Not only did Girsan find a way to make the already popular MCP35 family of handguns easier to carry but they have found another great market for our retailers to capitalize on,” said Chase Duffey, National Sales & Import Manager at EAA Corp. “We’ve already seen a huge demand for the more compact MCP35 PI.”
The new variant exhibits a matte black finish, upon a steel frame. The staggered, double-stack magazine delivers a 15+1 overall capacity, in 9mm. EAA claims the pistol delivers exceptional accuracy. A slim trigger, ring hammer, and windage-adjustable drift sight rounds out the package.
The MCP 35 PI retails for $630. For even more info, please visit eaacorps.com.

The Hi-Power just continues to be the little engine that could. A seminal design with its double-stack 9mm magazine, you could argue the design is dated when compared to many of the newer 9mm pistols on the market. That’s fair. But the steel-framed Hi-Power remains a shooter. And we hope it never goes away again.
