2023 GUN OF THE YEAR: Springfield Armory SA-35 9mm with NRA Grips
The Springfield Armory SA-35 9mm with NRA Grips is based on one of the most prolific and popular pistols in small arms history. The Springfield Armory SA-35 gives today’s shooters a modern take on a revered design, with rugged forged blued carbon steel parts for strength and durability. This pistol has improved ergonomics and enhanced controls, modern white dot front sights, an improved feed ramp design, and an increased 15-round capacity. Configured without a magazine disconnect for a drop-free magazine, the SA-35 features a factory-tuned trigger with a quick reset, and a crisp, clean break. The slides of the Springfield Armory SA-35 have been polished by Baron’s Engraving to a bright, brush blued finish, and are enhanced with a 24kt gold scroll design that features the Friends of the NRA Logo and the words, “National Rifle Association 2023 Gun of the Year.” Sporting exclusive Friends of NRA Hogue walnut grips, this SA-35 9mm is exclusive to Friends of NRA events and is limited to 675 units. *Not legal in all 50 states
Henry “Homesteader” Carbine 9mm with NRA Seal
Available exclusively to the Friends of NRA, this unique edition of the Henry Homesteader 9mm Carbine pays tribute to the National Rifle Association in continuation of Henry’s longstanding support. This semi-automatic 9mm Luger carbine sports a milled aircraft-grade aluminum receiver that is intricately engraved with the NRA seal and understated scrollwork, and then hard anodized for long-lasting durability. The furniture is cut from genuine American walnut and finished with a leather-textured stippling to provide a non-slip grip. At just over 16”, the round blued steel barrel is threaded at the muzzle (1/2x28) for use with a suppressor and topped with an adjustable aperture rear sight and a screw-on front post sight. For those that prefer an illuminated reticle or magnification, the top of the receiver is drilled and tapped to accept an optics base. The carbine comes with both a 5-round and a 10-round Henry magazine, while magazine well adapters are available separately to make use of Glock, Smith & Wesson M&P, and SIG magazines. With the bolt release toggle accessible from both sides of the carbine, a center-mounted thumb switch safety on the upper tang, and a charging handle that can be moved from the left-side or the right-side of the bolt, the Henry Homesteader 9mm Carbine is truly ambidextrous. For plinking or protection, the Henry Homesteader 9mm Carbine has your back with Made in America reliability and a Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee.
