EAA has just announced the first optics-ready Hi Power clone, the Girsan MC P35 OPS Optic.
Girsan of Turkey has been cranking out variants of its MC P35 Hi Power clone like there’s no tomorrow. So far this year, the company has already released the carry-sized MC P35 PI as well as the modernized MC P35 OPS and Match models. Yet another variation has just been announced with the MC P35 OPS Optic, and it’s the first time that a Hi Power has been offered from a factory in an optics-ready configuration.
The MC P35 OPS Optic model is identical in every way to the MC P35 OPS besides the optics-ready slide which omits a rear iron sight, so we’ll only briefly go over the shared features before diving into what’s new. Whether optics-ready or not, the MC P35 OPS comes with G10 grips, a fiber optic front sight, a beveled magwell and an extended beavertail. They also feature upgraded straight triggers, a 15-round capacity, an accessory rail and no magazine disconnect safety.
The slide of the MC P35 OPS Optic is milled to directly accept RMS/RMSc-pattern red dots without the use of an adaptor plate. EAA also claims that some Holosun optics will fit it as well, though these will possibly require an adaptor plate. Each pistol will also ship with an EAA Far-Dot 4-MOA red dot sight.
Chase Duffey, National Sales and Import Manager at EAA, said this about the new optics-ready pistol:
When we were looking at how to make the MC P35 OPS more useful and offer the customer something that they really wanted directly from the factory, a light and bright red dot that uses a mounting pattern that’s almost universally accepted without any sort of adapter plate was the overwhelming choice…Now, if the customer wants to keep it as is from the factory or if they want to accessorize it with lots of commercially available products at their local shop, they have every option right out of the box.
The optics-ready MC P35 OPS has an MSRP of $850 and will be shipping to dealers soon.
