How are you all doing?! I am approaching my 21st birthday so I will finally get to buy my first handgun. While my dad has handguns so I'm not new to the handgun world of shooting, I am looking for something special as my first pistol. I am in CA so we do have a roster, basically all guns except for glock gen 3's are illegal here. That being said, I have a friend that is offering to sell me his Springfield Model P9 LSP (long slide ported) for my birthday. I am trying to find as much information as I can but Google is lacking of much information. I could only find that they are Tanfo OEM parts assembled in the US by Springfield (I don't even know if this is correct). I was also told that they used to be used heavily as Open guns if they were chambered in 9x21 to make major power factor. This one my buddy is selling is chambered in 9x19. Anyone here own one and/or have more information surrounding this pistol? Where can I get extra parts? Barrels? Sights? I kinda want to shoot this in production but it is ported.... Thanks in advanced!
I have some questions for any of you Tanfoglio experts out there. I am currently in the process of converting my small frame 9x19 Tanfo one of the Israeli imported 'Mossad" version. I am getting my frame drilled and threaded for a mount. One question is what mount do you all recommended? I bought a ipscalex mount to try but the right sided screw holes will interfere with my serial number, rather than pay to have the serial number moved I am just going to go with another mount. I am assuming I could use a CZ mount since the holes have not been yet done on my pistol. Can anyone confirm this? From reading thru the forums it seems the Cheely mount is highly recommended. So I am considering this mount in the CZ/Czech mate version. I also assume that a 2011 mount would not be the best fit height wise, but I am not certain on this either. If anyone who has played with different mounts has the answers any help would be much appreciated. Secondly if anyone knows where to source a small frame 9x19 6 inch barrel please let me know, or PM me if you have one. Thanks all for your help, I will be sure to post pictures once the project is complete. Pretty sure I am going PVD coated on the finish so it might be a bling, bling Tanfo.
When I was looking for a thumb rest to put on my Limited gun, I stumbled across one for an airsoft gun; it looked nicer than the offerings for 2011s and was $16 shipped, so I said "what the hell, aluminum is aluminum right?" I did some modifications to make it fit my hole pattern and it worked out great: With my little Tanfo Open project I've been having a hell of a time finding a good comp, since the small frame has a smaller diameter barrel than a 2011 I'm stuck with the offerings from Numrich (the three port aluminum 9mm comp they sell is actually for .40 and the two port leaves something to be desired). One day, surfing the web I came across a compensator for an airsoft gun?!? I figured for $13 shipped I would check it out: The exit hole was already just about right for 9mm (~0.38") so I drilled out the threads and threaded female M14X.75 threads and here it is: I went to the range, shot it today and I'll be damned: it worked pretty well! With major loads it was very flat, but it doesn't have a lot of baffle area, it was pretty hard on the hand. Pretty awesome if you ask me!
