Tanfoglio stock 2 R5 interruptor from patriot defense ...


Recommended Posts

and leave the rest stock? pretty sure it says right on the product page its not designed to be used that way so you would most likely have to do some minor fitting. I had to do some using the 1 piece sear and the upgraded hammer

CAN I JUST INSTAL THE R5 INTERRUPTOR (droop in part) and let the other parts the same ?? thanks for the help

Just bought and installed the R5 in a Defiant Lim Pro with a Titan hammer and it dropped in perfectly with no adjustments needed.

It did!
 

To answer the various questions, I had previously fitted a Bolo to it and the sear was already trimmed so safety just slid in. 
Just really wasn’t completely happy with the original Bolo fit, so purchased the R5. 

 

This isn’t my first Tanfoglio or tune. I have 5 all of which have been polished and tuned up, 2 with the Bolo, one now with the R5, 2 small frame tuned but retained stock interupter and Limited with Henning flat trigger and no  interupter at all. 

 

It really is a very simple gun compared to the CZ (what my son shoots) to tune. Ya just have to take your time and make very small changes testing each mod before moving on.  
 

I also find a machining variances between each gun, especially the hammer spring pockets. The depths vary from gun to gun. 
 

I have to add if the gun already has the one piece sear and Titan hammer it is highly likely the R5 will drop right in and function.  The only question would be, as pointed out, will the safety rotate into locked position?  Won’t know unless it’s tried and then it really is an easy fix if it doesn’t. 
 

My only advice to the OP is this, if you don’t think you have the mechanical skill to work on the gun then send it to Patriot Defense and have them do the work. They are great people.

Are you sure it’s a small frame? They are a bit rare in the USA.

 

I have never tried to install the Titan on my small frame Tanfoglios, because I didn’t think the result was worth the effort and money.   But if you don’t mind spending the money and like to experiment it might work.
 

Personally I would invest my time polishing and tuning up the gun per Memphis Mechanic’s video instructions first.  Get the gun down to a super smooth DA and SA pull which will fire all your ammo. Then if you still want to shorten the SA trigger take up and reset get the parts. It’s only time and money and if they don’t work you can go back to the original parts. 

 

You need the skills, patience and tools to make the install go well. If you’re not sure find someone who will make the changes for you or send it to PD.

For hours. Until everything I highlighted in the videos as a polishing spot looks like wet chrome.

 

Most of us actually do 2 or 3 rounds of polishing before we’re really happy: each time you tear it down and look for spots where metal is rubbing metal that can be cleaned up.

Hey! I think that’s the highest praise I can get, when it comes to how well I produced that series... thanks. :D 

(I won’t ask which parts you “barely” destroyed.)

Very common. Trigger isn't coming forward enough to pick up the wing in single action. You have to remove material from the back of the disco

The poster just used the CZ reference to the same thing. 
 

Will it disappear? Maybe, maybe not. More than likely not. This is the fitting process because each Tanfoglio is unique.
