Let me re-phrase that. Anyone want to see a Springfield Armory Hi Power?

Oh they exist. This one belongs to a customer / virtual friend (never met him face to face but we have done several deals.). He has an extensive HP collection.

They were going to make AR-15s at one point, too.

An SA HiPower, wow. I've probably said a hundred times that I wish someone like SA would start making HiPowers, and do it like a "Loaded" with better sights, no hammer bite, etc. Maybe even stainless. In other words, something like what Charles Daly tried, except different.

I never knew they looked at it. I wonder who really made it? Imbel?

That hammer would be a hand killer, though.

I remember that SA AR-15. They called it the M15 or something like that. The flyer I got on it (1983-84?) showed it with the round handguards that were still a little uncommon on 20" ARs. I want to say it had those Rapidex windage knobs too. Come to think of it, between those two things, it had most of the aftermarket accessories of the time!
When I called and pestered the lady at SA about when it would be out, she danced around a while then basically said Colt made them change their minds.

Wow! That is a beauty for sure! I had no idea they actually existed.

So, they build the XD's but not these....go figure.

Did he want to sell it? :wink:

They don't build XD's, their imported from Croatia. They are just labeled SA.

ONE OF FIVE MAKES SEEING ONE IN THE WILD NEAR IMPOSSIBLE. It shows that SA is always looking to expand their market.

They also had a polymer grip gun(Israel) and looked at a .22 pistol.

Yeah, FEG. I would LOVE a "loaded" hi-power with the Springfield crest, Novak sights, undercut hammer, and a better trigger right from the factory.

Made in America or Manufactured in Belgium/Assembled in Portugal?

Is their really any choice for Browning's last pistol design?

The Springfield Amory would be a perfect site for this pistol.

FEG, you sure? My source at SA said they probably came via CZ. But the country of origin would be on them.

So, look that puppy over and see where it was made.
