  1. Will that work for other polymer tanfo clones? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  2. A new trigger, hammer, grips, and sights would look obvious to those in the know. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  3. Is it possible to make the rods as long as the barrel for extra weight even if it requires some tapering? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  4. Any plans on making another guide rod or 2? I would be interested. Who did the stippling? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  5. Well what I am getting at is that these articles/post suggested that polishing and shortening hammer hooks would remove the case hardening and drastically reduce its wear resistance. They recommended heat treating and quenching for longevity. However it didn't say how to do this or who provided this service. I have yet to meet or talk to anyone who did.

  6. Well I have read articles and posts in the past that after polishing/stoning that hammers should be heat treated. Yet I have never heard of anyone actually doing so. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  7. So in short, everyone who polishes the sear engagement surfaces of the hammer or makes the hooks shorter is removing the original case hardening or is that not the case? Since it seems that the proper heat treating and quenching equipment/techniques are out of the realm of most hobbyists and gunsmiths, so it never gets done? Are Tool steel/stainless steel hammers the only way to go? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  8. I didn't even know places like these even existed, lol. I heard that even the aftermarket hammers, Titan, Delta, Unica, are only case hardened as well. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  9. I have heard about this but I have not seen a video or a writeup about how to do this. Can anyone shed some light on this process? Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  10. That must be new since they don't carry that weight at Wal-Mart or any other auto parts store... Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  11. I thought T6 only came in 5W40. So According to this chart T6 performed the best? I know it is highly recommended for Direct injected turbos but it might be a little too smelly for those to use on their firearms, LOL.
  12. Thanks Rugby, it is nice to know that the sights can be upgraded. It irritates me that Tanfoglio still makes slides without front dovetails. I wonder if the P-Match slides are compatible with the Large steel frames and their magazines. I don't even recall if anybody even makes tritium sights for the Tanfoglio dovetails.

  13. They sight are fixed on the regular polymer guns. I don't know about the P-Match versions. *EDIT* The P-Match front sights can be swapped out like the Match Elite and other high end models. It seems that nearly all of the Tanfo Clones are. The only real exception I can think of is the K2 45 and the Jericho 941. I can't believe that the Polymer Frame guns sell for over $450 when older steel frames can be found for similar pricing.
  14. My credit card is relieved. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  15. Well, 2/3 of $960 is $640. So it's just a wee bit less. I picked up few Witness-P models for less than half of that. The ergos don't seem to be too bad at that price point. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
