then stops then engages again then the hammer releases.anyone else have this? or maybe know whats causing it

Might be because SA have little Quality control on their firearms or so it seems from so many posts with a variety of issues with new, "I just picked it up" situations.
Which SA pistol is it?

ok took it to the range this thiing is epic bad very first clip at least 5-6 empty casings stuck in barrel had to remove mag rack the slide
it would then eject the round.replace loaded mag and would only rack by manually releasing slide stop would not release by racking slide
also trigger had the weird action mentioned above.ran about 75 rounds 3 different ammo brands same results some where around 25-30(i lost count)
non ejected empty casings did not eject. I figured with serial no.of 14,000 i wouldnt have the issues of the earlier ones OH...THATS SO NOT THE CASE !!!

If the pistol is failing constantly to extract, LOOK at the extractor and or replace, or is the extractor broken, or in the extractor spring missing????
Strip the pistol,.then take the slide, and put a 9mm case under the extractor. Dose it hold the case To tight, or loose. Is the extractor fitted correctly.
If it fails to extract it is a extractor problem.

yeah its brand new and they are well known for the extractor issue.as far as the rest goes i would bet it has to do with the sear spring.
ive had it now for 3 days theres no way they are getting away with selling this and getting off scott free... they can fix it.

Found this, a ling address it may explain whats going on. "springfield sa-35 problems - Google Search
yeah he said 3 or 4 times fail to eject and 3 or 4 time fail to load in 200 rnds.mine almost did that in the first mag.
not going to void my warranty on a maybe like i said they can fix it.if they cant they can replace it
also forgot to mention the safety feels like complete trash as well

i do agree when its working it feels great the weight the balance the fit i can see it being a favorite to shoot
just not in the shape it is now.

The Springfield Armory SA - 35 is a direct copy of the Browning High Poser. The magazine disconnect safety is tied to the trigger so the gun will not fire with the magazine removed.. The safety can be taken out and polished so that it will not do that. i suggest you send it to Novak's Pistol Shop in Parkersberg West Va for his trigger package . HE IS and ABSOLUTE MASTER on the Browning High Power and its clones.

Yes a shooter is always able to find someone who will fix, for a price what was a fault on a few pistol, it is a Quality control issue with Springfield. He wants to know the cause and so do we here reading all this.
On another note the SA 35 did look familiar, yep, a Browning High Power. WORST pistol God ever created. THAT is a personal opinion from many years. As i tell everyone at
the clubs i shot at, a great paper weight or door stop. It's not the pistol it't the rotten safety.

Not quite Springfield removed the magazine disconnect safety as it was so hated because of the trigger. The also put a rounded hammer and extended the beaver tail get rid of hammer bite. They finally gave it a better set of rear sights instead if that tiny v. They may have made other minor changes.
