First Look: Girsan High Power MCP35 PI LW

Gun News

Girsan is continuing to modernize the classic BHP design, this time with the High Power MCP35 PI LW.

Girsan of Turkey has been hard at work incorporating modern features into the classic Browning Hi Power design in recent years, but the company isn’t done yet. Imported into the States by EAA, the newest model is an amalgamation of all the various features that Girsan has introduced since its original MC P35 Hi Power clone launched in 2021.

Girsan MCP35 PI LW OPS, Two-Tone.

Called the High Power MCP35 PI LW and available in four configurations, the new pistols feature the 3.88-inch barrel of the MCP35 PI, the accessory rail and flat trigger of the MCP35 OPS/Match and the optics-ready slide of the MCP35 Ops Optic. Combined with the new lightweight aluminum frame, these may very well be the most carry-ready Hi Powers ever made.

The LW in the MCP35 PI LW’s name stands for Light-Weight, as all four models in the series feature an aluminum frame. The new frame material brings the weight down from 1.6 pounds (standard MCP35 PI) to 1.34 pounds. As mentioned, the pistols also feature flat triggers with a lighter pull weight, optics-ready slides with an RMS/RMSc footprint and a 3.88-inch barrel.

Girsan MCP35 PI LW Match, Black.

The OPS configuration of the pistol also features an accessory rail, but the Match version has a smooth dust cover instead. Other features include an ambidextrous safety, an extended beavertail, G10 grips and a fiber optic front sight. As always, they’re chambered for 9mm and come with a 15-round magazine.

Girsan MCP35 PI LW Match, Two-Tone.

The OPS and Match configurations of the pistol are both available with either a black or a two-tone finish. MSRP for the black models is $749 and MSRP for the two-tone models is $772.
