    Would be interesting. I think one of the driving factors with the SA Hi Power (myself included) is the nostalgia behind it. The CZ-75 Compact however, has always interested me. The Compact's size/dimensions are very close to the Glock-19 which I find to be ideal for every day.

    One of these new ones would be cool. I have to agree with Gabe about keeping the BHP lines.

    I have a Belgian made one that was purchased by Argentina before they started making their own. I pulled out the mag disconnect and the trigger is so much better.

    Got to handle one very briefly and try the trigger pull. Didn't feel much better than the original trigger. I attribute that to being new, un lubed and that matte blue finish.
    No, didn't have time to play with the safety lever or really get into tightness of fitting.
    Mainly because I had no intention of buying one yet. Not saying no but not interested in the base model.

    Is SA hinting at other models?

    The immediate change I'd make to the base model is to ditch the rear sight in favor of one that didn't crowd the top back of the slide.

    My druthers would be limited to a tough forged aluminum frame and a reversible if not ambidextrous safety.

    Is SA the manufacturer or is this the same as the XD? Imported with their name /branding.
    Wasn't the XD made(maybe still is) in Turkey?

    As opposed to some comments, I only want a base model, not one that someone at Springfield thinks I want. Mine will go to one of the best, if not the best, shop for 1911s and BHPs, Novak's.

    as was said, Croatia and I believe they still are.

    Sorry, I just am not buying that SA will be making that pistol in the US from only US sourced parts and selling it at that price. It is a lot of money to risk to try to resurrect a pistol whose heyday was 50 years ago. It also doesn't fit SA's business model of putting their name on imported guns.

    If the whole thing isn't imported, I would be completely shocked if the frame and slide did not come from Turkey, either rough or finished. My bet is they add enough value to a pistol made from imported parts to classify it as US made.

    The LKCI Regent clone from Turkey is a fine pistol. If you can find one.

    I agree. Anything made in the USA...if it is adequate...will be at least three times the price of the same exact thing made overseas. That said...other than our ARs...I don't think I own a US made pistol...oh wait...the S&W 642
