    Tanfo case

    They come with literature/instructions stating they are from Negrini. I thought they were pretty slick when I got my first Tanfoglios too.

    So I'm not the only one who thinks the case they come with is pretty nice? The single magazine (most models) is kind of a bummer though.

    Tanfoglio Stock 3 shoulder holster

    I wish they'd do like Beretta does and pair up with someone in Italy to offer some quality leather holsters.

    IFG Lim Pro came in today

    I must have snagged them just before you asked!

    IFG Lim Pro came in today

    They were out of stock of the "smooth" Xtreme triggers and I didn't want to wait any longer than I had to so I just opted for the "checkered" which to me is what I'd call serrated. I had a slight preference for smooth but not enough to wait forever. I've had metal serrated triggers before (pretty common on 1911s) and liked them just fine.

    My Stock II and III are at Patriot Defense getting "upgrades" right now and Xtreme triggers are going in both for the same reasons.

    I wish my stock II and III came with that trigger. Personally, I'm not a fan of the overtravel screw especially its location.

    Witness Elite Stock 3 and IDPA

    I've never shot IDPA but someone else posted the magazine is 3.5oz. 41.6 + 3.5 = 45.1 oz and thus illegal. Lighter grips and a lighter guide rod could probably get it under 43 again. I'm sure there is a bit of variance in this from the factory though. I just bought this Accuteck scale just for weighing guns, slides, barrels, etc because it seems to enter discussions on various message boards all the time.

    Witness Elite Stock 3 and IDPA

    Read my post above---I just weighed a brand new 100% untouched 9mm Stock III last week before I boxed it up and shipped it to PD.

    Witness Elite Stock 3 and IDPA

    My 9mm Stock III 100% stock without a magazine is 41.6oz compared to Stock II at 39.7.

    The Lim Pro's have landed

    Damn that small frame price....good! EDIT: Oh man, the pics are working now. Very nice. Am I alone in thinking it looks sick in black? Imagine a Tanfoglio with a quality Nitrocarburizing job, like Severn's hard hat. I just spent 1100 with them and sent them two guns to work on so unfortunately I won't be buying any time soon. I really prefer the full dustcover but this has my interest now. Tough decision though---if you already have a large frame, another large frame keeps your mags the same. But if you're buying it in 9mm you can get a small frame with the right sized ejection port, full third lug, and mags without spacers in them. In other words, the "correct" gun for the caliber.

    Because I misread your post. Looking at it now, I don't know how I did it. But for some reason when I posted I thought you made reference to only the LF would feel the same.

    Having never seen a "small frame" Tanfoglio I can only go by what I've read online. I've seen reports that small frame or large frame the outer dimensions are the same, the internal dimensions in the magwell are what change (along with the ejection port). So do the small frame Tanfoglios feel more like a CZ?

    I'll be honest......if IFG starts doing small frame Stock II/III I'd probably get those even though I've already got the EAA versions. Something about that relieved lug..........

    IFG sneak peek

    Good to hear, sounds like IFG is looking to really get more into Tanfoglios then. Seems like a strange arrangement to have 2 different importers stateside, I've often wondered why Tanfoglio was averse to establish operations in the US with our market for guns being so large. It would be nice to have full access to the entire catalog (along with perhaps unique items based on feedback from a US subsidiary) as well as cutting out a middleman that just increases the price. There are already so many middlemen since it goes mfgr--->importer--->distributor---->dealer. Since for whatever reason they don't want to do that and EAA has a not so great reputation for CS I am very interested to see how IFG's foray pans out.
