Hi guys,
any feedback on this pistol?how is its reliability,durability and accuracy?

10-06-2010, 12:12 PM
I don't think its available in the market yet.

Sir, it is available in Lahore at PARA as well as Buksh Elahi. I recall it is in 50-60k range. I was told by one dealer that it is licensed production of a foreign brand, or some thing of that sort. Looks were good, dont know about reliability.

Great news.. thanks for the information coolbox brother.. then they must be having 1911 in 9mm by Armscor as well.??

If i remember correctly, somewhere on this forum Abbas bhi has rejected this handgun.

Aquarius brother,
I am not sure as I was mainly interested in the forum favourites :)
I liked the looks of this gun, so inquired , and politely returned it back.

@Aquarius bro.......... The Tanfoglio in 9mm by armscor has been available since long Sir at P.A.R.A, and even in Peshawer I remember our esteemed member SaifullahKhan to have purchased one from your city as well. :)

Anyhow, I posted a thread on this long ago "Tanfoglio Force 99", yet the gun which was supposed to be a CZ-75 clone has been rejected rightly in that thread by Chief Sb himself, blaming Armscor for having ruined the "natural point-ability" feature of the gun, which was the CZ-75's major quality.

It's a fully polymer model, looks good however, yet in performance seems to have some issues, at least as far as accuracy is concerned. :)

Do we have any firing results of Tangfoglio Viper on PakGuns?

Well they do have a 1911 in 9mm, made in Philippines too, but I am not sure if its by Armscor or some other manufacturer. In fact I am sure that it wasn't manufactured by Armscor. Demand was 75k.

Not seen Sir...

by the way i am much disappointed by the results shown by Kanuni S... i thought its good pistol which i own. :(

10-06-2010, 08:36 PM
Topak bro, in that case, we can't say anything unless we see the firing results. Does any member possess a Viper??

Kanuni is not a bad gun but the one that I fired had a miserable trigger which obviously affected the firing results. With a better trigger, Kanuni can do much better. How is the trigger of your Kanuni??

The Tanfoglio “Viper” assembled in Philippines are self-defense pistols with polymer frame with enhanced levels of comfort and high-capacity magazines. The Viper has a 'cocked and locked' safety catch on the frame with firing pin safety catch.

The standard size is perfect for CG/HD and the compact version has the same features as the Standard “Viper”, but is equipped with a shortened slide and perfect for CC.

It has been dscussed before on the fourm where I also commented.(See below link) @Abbas has also liked the Tanfoglio.

Tanfoglio "Viper" is an under estimated piece here in Pak. It's doens't matter where does it come from but what does matters is "how well it performs"?
I am a big fan of Tanfoglio "Viper", have used this gun and in my point of view, it's Reliable, Accurate, well balanced and the grip is awesome. Puts the bullets where they are needed to be. The standard or full size is real good for Range use or HD and the Compact version is perfect for CC.

The viper is not bad at 50 K price point, Tangfolio is great at 85 K though. Both are good CZ75 clones. I prefer either the Nz85 or the Tangfolio. Thinking about buying it on my next trip to Karachi.

@AK47, Starfish & Glockcohlic.. brothers thank you very much for your information..... :)

@Glockholic bro.............Perhaps Abbas was just in a good mood then! :)

I've seen some more opinions by him as well, yet anyhow, as usual, it's quite an eye-catcher with your excellent photography above, but can I ask you, Sir, what's your personal firing review of it, how's the accuracy, overall performance, and how extensively have you used yours? Let's know plz. :)

11-06-2010, 12:46 PM
Sir Gillani...
i have not used other pistols..... so cant say any thing competitively about my pistol...
but i have checked it... i can hit a pepsi can from 15 meters... :D
so i think its good gun against a BG of 5.5 or 6 feet.
one of our member who holds np 42 has checked my pistol...according to him its recoil and trigger is better than NP42.

11-06-2010, 01:55 PM
Topak bro, that's good enough. Enjoy your Kanuni :)

I have heard that the earlier models of Tanfoglio Viper which is basically a CZ75B clone, contained parts which were manufactured in Italy by Tanfoglio but assembled in Philippines by Armscor. Newer models contain parts which are mostly manufactured in Philippines. Is that correct? Any authentic information on that?

12-06-2010, 10:04 PM
@AK47, Starfish & Glockcohlic.. brothers thank you very much for your information..... :)
My pleasure Dr Sb.
Gillani Sb: Sir i saw the viper, i think its a good pistol for the price range as far as teh build quality and trigger was concerned. Had a solid feel. the demand was around 50. But then again, you only get to know after a range review right? :P
Oh and I also saw the CZ p100. demand was 80k 85k. Again, very good build quality. Trigger was just a notch above average (Typical CZ)
Whens your next trip towards the nether regions of lahore? :)

12-06-2010, 10:22 PM
Starfish brother, soon :) Would let you know for sure.

I agree. Unless a handgun is tested on the range, nothing can be said about it for sure.

Regarding CZ100, this one is I believe Ceska's NAZAR WATTO. CZ is known for making fabulous handguns but this one just did not click right. CZ handguns normally have a wonderful trigger but CZ100 just does not belong to the class for which CZ pistols are well known. :)

I own Arsmscor Viper (Tangfolio) for quiet some time now and every time i use it i feel that it has been under rated on various forums. its beefed up look and all black colors adds to the character, in my opinion its is among the most good looking hand guns i have seen so far.

Recently I got the chance to test my Viper with Taurus PT92 side by side, i found the viper to be better in grip, accuracy and balance as compared to the Taurus PT92.

I own a 9mm viper (tanfoglio) and i like it a lot, it is accurate ,reliable, easy to disassemble and it comes in a resonable price. (i bought it in 55K with 3 (15 round) Mags.

yes adi jutt sahab it is very beautiful gun, but for a gun it is more important to have good performance rather then good look
