Migrate from small to large frame

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to migrate from current small frame and onto a new large frame, in case I should stumble upon a frame-only?

Basically, I just kinda like the full dust cover better:-)

Not sure what the question really is.

 

I have one small frame and here’s what’s different:

1. Magazines

2. Holsters

3. It’s a bit lighter so felt recoil is slightly higher.

 

The dust cover is not what makes it a small or large frame Tanfo, it’s the magwell and grip.

Question is If all the internals will fit in a large frame?

You need new magazines if you get a large frame. You need minimum of 3, preferably 4 or 5. That's 500e. Also you need trigger bar and firing pin. 

 

Don't know about the slide.

Slide?

So trigger bar and firing pin won’t match?

Mags should be doable to source

Quick search on the forums tells you can't mix large and small frame bottom and top.

Shoot the gun you have. Save up for a new one on the side if you feel like it. If you're anything like everyone else in this sport it won't be your last or only gun. :)

 

Don't know what the used handgun market is like there or how fast you can get a second license but you can always upgrade if the opportunity presents itself. Besides some nice new grips will give the gun a whole new look :)

Yeah, I know your spot on looking at different grip options, just a bit cumbersome to order from abroad just to realize this or that grip was not what I was looking for. Unfortunately not a lot of Tanfoglio parts domestically here in Denmark

You should check F&K Sport and J.M Works in Sweden. F&K is a shop and J.M. works is a certified Tanfo gunsmith. I would check Henning or Unica Grips.

Thanks. Have checked out F&K but Henning grips seems a bit expensive

Why don’t you just get the full dustcover in small frame? The dustcover length has nothing to do with sf/lf.

He means buy a new small frame lower. Don't know if it's possible or how much it costs. Tanfo doesn't really sell spare lowers and uppers. AFAIK a new complete Limited upper is in the 2000eur ballpark what I heard.

Ahh ok. Thats exactly my plan as I found it available on Tanfoglio site. Unfortunately they don’t sell to end customers so I was requested to consult my local gun Smith, so awaiting his reply, but I don’t have high expectations
