We just bought a brand new Stock II and the slide does not fit flush with the back of the rail, it hangs over the back a bit. We have a lot of cheaper guns that fit perfectly there and are a bit disappointed that the money these things cost that the fit is so off. 2nd is the markings on the rear right side of the slide just below and behind the rear sight. I have searched the web all morning trying to find an explanation or closer photo of the same markings on other guns and can't find anything. A few that I can see it looks like something recognizable. On ours it is like somebody took a tiny punch and obliterated whatever it was supposed to be. I feel almost like it is a way of denoting a "second". Maybe that is a quality mark and the seconds (like this one with the slide that does not appear to fit right) get the mark defaced. The Stock II on the slide is also in a bold all caps engraving, I assume it is a newer model style? It has FT-IT 2016 above the right grip. Anyone know what the deal is here? What the mark is and if the poor fit on the slide is "normal" for a gun of this caliber?
Looking for some advice as I get closer to completion on pistol. Gonna shoot it for a month or two to make sure there are no hidden issues that need to be addressed before finishing. The slide is Nickel Boron, comp is Titanium. The SVI signature grip is stainless. The STI frame is carbon steel (in the white). I've used Ionbond for several guns with great success. Just would like something other than a black and silver gun. I actually like the way it sits now, but the untreated frame is a no go. The NiB looks good, and is durable, but the slide was very thick. Created some clearance issues when it returned. Contacted Ionbond about other PVD coatings they offer in various colors. Want something more durable than Cerakote. Appreciate any feedback.
Looking to have a new build finished and would prefer DLC, but what's really the difference between the two? Is one harder than the other? Is one more prone to wear? The forum seems to have a lot of information from those that are either rah-rah DLC, or rah-rah IonBond...but no actual comparison between the two from a middle-of-the-road standpoint. Any and all input is greatly appreciated!
I recently picked up my first Tanfoglio, a Witness Limited in 9mm. This one has been on my wishlist for a while now and the time was ripe. Only one trip to the range so far and I'm happy to say that though it shoots low and to the right, it's pretty accurate. I just need to raise the sights a bit and nudge left. At 25 yards I had to aim a good 9-10" above the target. Two fit and finish questions for you Tanfoglio owners and enthusiasts: One, the finish on the safety looks a bit rough. I asked the same question on another forum and most thought that this wasn't normal. In your opinion is this worth contacting EAA over? Given their customer service reputation, I'm skeptical that they would offer me a replacement. Two, the slide hangs over the rear of the frame slightly. A bit too much to my eye, but if it's something that I can adjust on my own I'm probably fine doing so. What do you think? Is this within the range of normal? Thanks in advance.
