    Hello Everyone,

    My father just showed me his 9mm handgun that was given to him as a gift awhile back. The model is as stated in the title.

    I have found some information on this gun on THR and other places but was wondering is anyone has experience with this gun and could lend some thoughts.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I have an old Tangfolio TZ-75. I really like it. Dependable, accurate. Recoil is soft since it weighty. Nice guns.

    Welcome to THR

    Welcome aboard.

    Have a hard chrome one. My sample is very rough internally, average externally. It shoots, however, very well, reliable and accurate. Trigger is gritty and a bit long with some stacking in DA but SA is fine even with a little bit of creep. Very comfortable grip shape and angle. The performance of the gun alone is, to me, worth the price I paid for it years ago at $350, IIRC.

    Very popular in Israel, even used by their National Police commando unit for a while.

    FWIW, the current incarnation of this pistol is the Witness line imported by EAA (still made by F. Tanfoglio in Italy).

    You should look again, the Witness comes in 9mm, 40 S&W, .45 ACP, and 10mm (and probably some others).

    Be warned that the current 10 mm Witness may have issues with the newer contour of the slide which seems to have weaked it.

    When FIE went under, some folks from that company set up shop to make EAA.
