Stock II Optic

Recommended Posts

I just happened to be on the Tanfoglio website on noticed this gun in their catalog. Did they ever announce this model coming to the US?

I am interested too.  It does not look like EAA is importing this.  I guess our only hope is IFG?

The Stock 2 gets the ugly stock-1-style “lily pad” cocking serrations, too, I see.

 

I don't like the look of those either, and with the optic there it seems pointless. On my carry guns at least, (Trij RMR) the optic is the charge handle.

EAA was showing this particular model in their booth during this year's ShotShow and the rep I was talking to told me they will try to import this model as soon as this summer. Now that being said, how much of this is actually going to happen I have no idea but I am waiting to get my hands on one as soon as they are available.

I sent emails to ask both EAA and IFG if they are importing this model.  That's a month ago.  No response so far.   Safer bet probably is just buy a stock 2 and mill the slide.

I agree but for what optic?  It seems guys have had all of them break fairly consistently..... which one to choose?

 

The $600+ ones hoping they don't break that often?

Or the ~$300 ones knowing they'll break but also that they're cheap enough to have a few replacements of ready to swap in.

 

Or will the PD milled slide cut now accept various optics?

I just hope it makes CO USPSA weight without having to be milled.

 2.69lbs (43.04oz) + optic and extended basepad might be tight.

LPA super sight weighs 1 oz. 

Venom and FF3 weigh 1.1 oz, but they will need adapter plate.  

DPP and SRO weight 1.7 - 1.8 oz and they definitely will go over with adapter plate. 

R3 Max won't need a plate.  Not sure how much does it weigh.

Out of curiosity, what makes you say the R3 Max won't need an adapter plate? My information on the R3 was that it was an RTS2 footprint, versus the much smaller JPoint/Shield RMS cut?

Very good. I had only ever seen the graphic of the gun with the RMS installed; I had made the assumption that the cut was based there, my mistake

The R3 Max/XL have the mounting of the RTS2, but the footprint is larger with the angled front part of the housing, no?

Isn't that why 2011 optic mounts with blast shields had to be made for R3 Max/XL?

That's what I heard as well.
Similar to SRO, just fitting the footprint is not enough. Some guns require mods to deal with the protruding overhang.

This will also have to qualify under the production numbers for CO (and Prod) for a new model, right?

I don’t believe so. It’s a S2 with dot. The S2 has many variants already on the approved list.

I actually like the looks of the “serrations”.
