Keep it stock and it will go a long ways. The only thing I would do is respring it with Wolff springs.

If your going to carry it I might suggest the Cylinder and Slide Thumb safety.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it JohnJak. They are a blued gun, so they require more care then modern pistols. It might wind up a safe queen. Do you know..or anyone else know if this is the era that doesn't feed hollow points well? I know not to use +P ammo in it. How about any other characteristics I should know about it? Any info is welcome. Sweeper22 says chicks dig 'em...I had know idea....welcome news indeed

I would ask Cane. He can tell you everything you need to know.

I have no problems feeding hollow points. Make sure ramp is polished.

Is yours a modern model? Because I believe the Hollow Point issue was fixed with the newer ones. It's the older or original models that have the problem.

Over the decades, I've been fortunate enough to have several P35s pass thru my hands---still have three---including a 69C series very much like yours. Awesome pistols---EVERYBODY should have at least one Hi Power in their collection!
