    Czechmate vs Parrot

    Thank you so much guys. I will do some more research on pricing before I jump on either one.

    Czechmate vs Parrot

    I'm in the market for Czechmate or Czechmate Parrot pistol. I don't see any difference other than Parrot only comes with 1 barrel and bunch of anodized color parts (also metal trigger). It's a lot of money and wondering which one I should get and why.... any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I agree CHA-LEE has a good point. My goal is to learn the inside & out of Tanfo while I'm working on the gun... I did a few CZ trigger job with Cajun parts, and they all turned out great at the end. I'm going to put the factory parts back and troubleshoot from one part to another until I figure out the problem. MemphisMechanic, love your Tanfo videos... it helped me tremendously. Yes, I'm aware of the pre & over-travel removal while tuning the trigger. Thanks again for everyone's contribution and help! I will keep you guys updated with the progress.
  5. I didn’t measured the trigger weight before but definitely lighter than the current setup.
  6. I think Cha-Lee had a great point. One side of trigger pin was tiny tiny bit hitting the frame. I couldn't tell until I reposition the pin slightly and trigger feels a little better but not whole lot. With my Lyman gauge, now it's reading 3.8 LB average instead of 4.24LB. Slight improvement but I need to achieve 2~2.5 LB trigger pull. Is there any aftermarket pin for this? So far, I'm thinking about changing out the PD hammer and sear related part (not sure what part) in attempt to improve my trigger pull. Any other suggestions? You guys helped me a lot so far and I really appreciate it...
  7. I would love to send my gun to a smith but after I got a quick quote from PD, it's a bit more than what I could afford at the moment. I'm going to try the hammer and perhaps the sear w/ PD or EGW parts... hope that works. Mlussoro, I've pretty much watched all videos related to Tanfo Limited tune up or polishing. Will try to watch some more and see if I missed anything. CHA-LEE, the pin is extended but does not touch the frame. One thing to consider is the the trigger feels steep even the hammer is not cocked. It feels like the plunger has a lot of force and perhaps contributes the stiff trigger break. dhdeal, would love to send the gun to PD but the price was out of my budget... will try to tune in before I give up and send it to PD. HesedTech, I will try the EGW sear and hammer or perhaps SA hammer from PD. thanks for your suggestion.
  8. New to Tanfoglio but love the Tanfo more than my CZ already :) I'm in the process of tuning my Tanfoglio Limited 9mm for upcoming matches. My goal is to achieve the light trigger pull of CZ TSO or TS. Unfortunately, after a lots of upgrading and polishing, my trigger feels very heavy & breaks heavy. Every time I pull the trigger, the trigger feels a little travel then feels like hitting a brick before it breaks. It almost feels like pulling my Glock 3.5lb trigger. How can I achieve 2lb or below trigger pull with smooth break? I think I've changed pretty much everything expect the sear cage & the hammer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here's the list of current upgrades: Polished firing pin, plunger & trigger bar Henning flat trigger - replaced both trigger return & plunger spring w/ included Henning springs Henning guide rod Henning X-Long Firing Pin Wolff Recoil Spring - 8 Lb Henning Grams Format Follower Kit Henning Magazine release plunger Wolff Hammer Spring - 14lb Brass Shock Buffer Here's my average trigger pull weight after about 10 pulls.
  9. Chrome finish is very thin to start with... don't do it, you will only gonna make it worse.
  10. I see... thanks for your input.
  11. Thank you. Is there any dollar amount limit that you could order from outside of US?
  12. I'm thinking about ordering parts from Czech supplier. I could not find the rare parts like OEM Czechmate thumb rest etc in here. Anyway, I'm wondering whether it's ok to order firearm related parts from outside of US and ship them to US for personal use... not sure what’s the dollar amount limit. Anyone in the states ordered from foreign country CZ parts supplies before and how much you ordered?
  13. Almost ordered... does anyone know the correct part# for front fiber sight? Can't seem to find on CZ USA website.
  14. Thank you sir... it looks like they share same sight between Czchemate, TS and TS orange.
  15. Thanks for sharing. I thought all Czechmate comes with 2 barrels except the Parrot model... perhaps I'm wrong. Glad you got your factory thumb rest, I need to get one for my Czechmate as well. Yes, I think I will contact CZC as CZ USA never answered my questions.
  16. Recently I was able to acquire Czechmate in 9mm at good price. Unfortunately, it's missing the original case, manual and perhaps some factory parts. It's also missing an extra barrel *SIGH* By looking at the pic, what parts are missing that supposedly comes from the factory when purchasing a new Czechmate? I see some missing spring, obviously extra barrel, perhaps plastic recoil buffer? It looks like the pistol was made in 2011. My goal is to replace the missing parts as much as I could... still no lead for the replacement factory case, too. Also, I need info or part# for correct front fiber sight for this gun (CZ USA never replied). P.S. What type of finish is used on Czechmate... will refinish degrade the resale value?

    Czechmate question

    Can you post some pic of your new pistol and initial impression?
  18. Does anyone know where to get a factory CZ Czeckmate box that comes with the gun? I could not find it anywhere even CZ website. I emailed CZ and never got a response. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. I concur... Trigger is the same and I don't see any major advantage unless you've small hands like me
  20. I've Shadow 2... very nice gun indeed but Stock II is way better gun IMHO. You should handle two weapons in person before making a final choice.
  21. Lots of good recomendations. I thought about double alpha but the shooter's connection belt seems very nice especially considering its low price.
  22. Recently, I was lucky enough to acquire excellent condition 9mm Elite Limited & Ghost one holster at a fair price. Now, I need a competition type of belt that's stiff yet comfortable and could accommodate both heavy Elite Limited pistol & Ghost One holster. I'm not entering into any shooting competition yet but perhaps down the road w/ lots of practice. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
