I ordered mine last year and have been quite pleased with the overall performance of the pistol. However, there are several points that need to be presented. First, the suggested list price of about $699 is nowhere near what I paid! Mine cost near $900. Nobody forced me to pay it, so my bad, but price gouging has been an issue. Second, I also bought the Grisan 35, which is the exact same gun, except made in Turkey for about $400 and change and it is just as good! I have many Springfield products, but in this case all you are doing is paying for a name. As for the FN model, just released. They charge well over a grand, because its FN! I suggest doing some research before paying premium prices. If you can find the SA 35 for suggested retail, then by all means buy one, it is a very nice gun!
