    Default Tanfoglio 1911 .45 acp

    42330310150589899076475.jpg

    I have been looking at getting an affordable .45 to use in idpa.
    Does anyone have any experience with these?
    They look pretty good and the reviews online are positive as well.

    Also what do they cost here in ZA?

    Mine is ok,but I think the magazines that came with it aren't.I don't know why but filling the 8 round mags to capacity occaisionally causes failure to eject.My old Norinco 7rnd mags work way better.
    The ambi safety lever was a bit wobly ,so I swaped it .
    I havent shot it from the bench yet but with a randomly selected reload I was able to keep most of 50 shots in 8" offhand @ 25 yards.But I'm not the best shot in the world.
    Have only fired about 200 rounds so far and aside from the issue with the FTE (mag)I like it.

    By support I mean parts. Must say, I fondled a norinco clone the other day and was very impressed with the build quality. Maybe also an option.

    Seraph, PM sent...
    Yep, we will be supporting the complete range of Tanfoglio pistols including the 1911. The 1911 is a millSpec & should take any standard after market parts you might want to use. Although if you'd like a sport 1911 have a look at the 1911 custom. It has most things you'd like on a sport pistol and any further custom mods can be done inhouse by Numenor gunsmiths. Contact me at any time if there's any questions. Btw, these pistols are on special for the first batch to be brought in...

    Yep! Von Claw's the man... he's just been given the agency, and he's associated with Torch and Battery so there's plenty good gunsmithing on tap.
