EAA over the past couple of years has been bringing in the new MC P35 platform from Girsan in Turkey, and the guns, essentially clones of the old Mk III BHP, have proven to be popular. Not content to rest on that, the company has responded to calls to update the classic and earlier this year delivered the OPS series, which adds an accessory rail to the frame and a flat-faced trigger without the mush of a magazine safety plunger to overcome.
Now, the logically named new MC P35 OPS Optic goes one better and comes from the factory micro red-dot slide cut in the RMS/RMSc footprint. Better yet, they even throw in an optic.
The included EAA FAR-DOT (Fast Acquisition Red Dot) weighs only 0.61 ounces and runs from a single CR2032 battery that provides a 4-MOA red dot. Using an automatic brightness setting, the battery life on the FAR-DOT is listed as up to 2,000 hours. Don't like it? Lots of folks make RMS/RMSc footprinted MRDs.
"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,” said Chase Duffey, EAA's national sales and import manager. "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 ask on the Girsan MC P35 OPS Optic, with the FAR-DOT included, is $850.
