    Limited Edition Custom P-35

    I've had Chuck Warner of Elite Warrior Armament build an Inglis High Power from parts supplied to him including a matching frame and slide; overhaul a former Israeli Police early 1950s FN High Power, and do a "Retro" MEUSOC overhaul of a 1st Generation Delta Elite.

    Recently he posted on FB that he had several of the Custom P-35 Pistols that he had made in a limited run of 30. I contacted him and reserved Serial Number 00022. It was delivered to my local FFL last month; and I went to pick it up. It came in a nice Nylon Pistol Bag with 3 fifteen round Mecgar magazines. The wait was well worth it! Chuck had the grip area made with enough "meat" to checker both the front and rear grip...

    I stopped at a local Academy Sports Store and bought 150 rounds of ammo (unfortunately the "wrong" ammo) and went to the range to shoot it. I bought some Federal "Train and Protect" 115 grain JHP; it doesn't feed consistently or extract; but the "generic" 115 grain FMJ 9mm ammo I have works fine. When I talked to Chuck about this he recommends 147 grain ammo for it.

    The gun is beautiful; accurate, and really feels great in the hand. I was able to fire 50 flawless FMJ rounds through it; I'm confident with JHP ammo it's function will be flawless. I'm going to order some 147 grain JHP ammo (per Chuck's recommendation) and see how that shoots and feeds.

    ENJOY!

    Beautiful piece of armament, . . .

    I just cringe when I see a beautiful handgun these days, . . . especially if it is carried, CCW, . . .

    Just thinking what the property clerk does after he bags and tags it, . . .

    But that is just my imagination running wild, . . . have fun with it, . . . I sure would if it was mine.

    May God bless,

    Re: Limited Edition Custom P-35

    I'm rather surprised that this gun is finicky on ammo. Browning P35s have never been picky based on the feed ramp design.
    Interesting....

    - - - Updated - - -

    The P35 has always had extreme accuracy with the 147gr loading due to the 1:14 twist. Almost match grade but, the 115 and 124gr loadings should give you excellent results as well.
    Nice looking Hi-Pwr, Sir.

    I really like this Hi-Power from Elite Warrior Armament. The price ainít cheap, but neither is the quality. I have handled and fired some very, very nice custom Hi-Power pistols from some quality gunsmiths, and this Elite pistol is superior. The quality of the machining and fit is superb. The checkering is very nicely done, and is much more than just a cosmetic touch. Elite Warrior Armament was able to execute a superior Hi-Power pistol with greater strength, while still maintaining the wonderful handling, shooting, and feel of the original browning pistols. Accuracy is outstanding, the trigger pull perfect, and reliability was one hundred percent. The pistol fed, fired, and ejected every cartridge fed to it.

    Re: Limited Edition Custom P-35

    Great post Van! This is the 4th gun from Chuck Warner; this I my 3rd Hi-Power (but this is based on the P-35 and purpose built) that I got from Chuck.

    I read the review on gunblast; a great review!
