  1. 14 people in under a month looks pretty good compared to...... Steyr forum: 9 people posted in 5 years.
  2. Without a doubt the biggest downside to using Tanfos for self defense are a lack of holsters and a lack of sights. Does anyone make night sights for Tanfos? I sometimes carry my Witness Steel 10mm in an Aliengear Hybrid Holster. I can check which mold I am using if you are interested, I believe it is either a Sig P220R or a G20. The hybrid holster is a very comfortable way to carry a heavy gun; no issues with all day carry. However, it is obviously inferior to a proper molded kydex holster in a number of ways
  3. Along with that, it seems like Steyr and Para could be folded into the "other" category as they get far less traffic than even Canik
  4. The Stock I imported by IFG is specifically designed to be under the IDPA weight limit. Looks like it would be a great option for 10mm.
  5. I would definitely go either .38 super or 9x23. You get more magazine capacity than .357 Sig and they are straight wall cases so much more forgiving to load. With .38 super you can just buy the gun you want and no need to spend extra money with a gunsmith. Load Starline .38SC brass for the best reliability and you should be able to load it very strong. Also factory ammo is very affordable. 9x23 is just a simple reaming of a 9mm barrel. It would be the best option for maximum performance, but you would need to buy pricey brass/ammo. One option would be to just buy a 9mm barrel for your 10mm Tanfo and have it reamed to 9x23. You can use the money saved to buy brass, dies, etc. Of course this may not be as reliable as having the proper 9mm breechface to start with. I have thought a lot about a similar project but havent pulled the trigger yet, let us know how it goes! Would be interesting to see some datapoints for velocity, reliability, durability, and accuracy
  6. Avoid the "UM Tactical" stuff. I have the UM3 and it falls off my SP01 after a box of ammo, regardless of how tightly it is secured. Very strange tensioning system.
  7. If your split times are literally three times what they were with irons.... The problem is a training issue, not one caused by a subtle difference in how the gun handles.
  8. If they make this for the new Stock I with a rear sight plate option I'll most likely be buying one

    New CZC Gun

    In 9mm I believe the capacity is the same: 19 rounds in about the same mag length, definitely an advantage for .40 though. I have no interest in this gun, but love the idea of CZC making complete guns in the US. What I would lkke to see is an aluminum frame SP01 with checkering like an S2 and a wider/flatter slide like a P09 designed from the ground up to be easy to cut for optics.
  10. What a cool design! It seems to me that "20" in the diagram is a DA or half cock notch
  11. Atlas, How do you feel about something like the DPM guide rod with its multiple springs? Shouldn't that give the same effect as increasing the stroke? I've never stroked a gun or used a DPM so I have no experience on this, though it looks like an interesting option and much cheaper than having a gun modified.
  12. Looking forward to the review P.E. Why don't you accuracy test it like you have other guns at the end of your reviews? You might want to use a laser instead of the sights, people complain that big front dot makes it hard to aim precisely American Rifleman review showed extremely good accuracy, another gun rag showed moderate accuracy, and some youtubers have claimed poor accuracy.
  13. PLEASE OFFER THIS FOR A STANDARD SHADOW OR SP-01 Been waiting years for this!
  14. Gotcha. Sounds like there is a good chance it would touch off a round as soon as you rack the slide, perhaps even go full auto. When you say imbalance between the springs, is that because one was replaced while the other was not, or purposely replaced with a weaker/stronger than factory spring? If this is something that just happens from high wear on Tanfos, perhaps Tanfos with a high round count are mechanically safer if you remove the FPB altogether? This is a bit of a tangent but... Lately I've been thinking a lot about CZB vs. Tanfo vs. CZ Shadow for carry guns and what possible situations could cause an Accidental Discharge. The conclusion I've come to is that a Shadow with regular firing pin and spring is entirely drop safe unless dropped directly on its muzzle, in which case the round is going to go into the floor anyway. As for AD's due to mechanical failure, I figure that is the real advantage of having a FPB... it prevents the gun from going off if there is a very high degree of wear on parts such as the hammer/sear hooks. However, your example seems to indicate that a heavily worn Tanfo with FPB intact is just as likely to have an AD as a Shadow would be (obviously the likelihood is still extremely low). Plus, unlike worn hammer/sear hooks, you can't test for an imbalance between springs by simply pressing on the hammer, since when the hammer is cocked back the trigger bar will prevent the sear from moving.
