    Quality of newly imported CF-98

    Dear Fellows,
    Has anybody purchased a newly imported CF-98. These new imports don't have any stamps of Norinco or Entercon, plus there are some changes in mag design as well. I just wanna get a feed back about quality of these newly imported CF-98's as compared to the previous lots. So please share your views.
    Thanks & Regards

    AoA all,

    When buying pistols,go to the "GUN SHOP" who will have patience to let you try your shortlisted models
    in order to check the following characteristics.


    1. GRIP FIT
    2. Instant SIGHTS alignment and clarity.
    3. Trigger pull and RESET TIMING.
    4. Ease of carrying in waist band HOLSTER.
    5. Magazine capacity.
    6. Reviews in (Top HAND GUNNERS MAGAZINES) or other online sources.


    AND FINALLY, DRY FIRE them all couple of times (Obviously with SNAP CAPs in the chambers).

    I have heard nothing bad about them. If I get the chance I will shoot and review one.

    Both are totally different guns with different features. One is a hammer fired weapon with decocker and manual safety. The other is a striker fired weapon with no external safety or decocking mechanism.

    Ultimately, it has to be what you are comfortable with. Me I am not comfortable with Glock type weapons. I prefer a gun with a hammer, decocker and a manual safety. This is why my first 9mm pistol was the PT 92 platform.

    Conversely, many people like the Glock platform better than others. I don't like the fact that it has no external safety and it is always almost fully cocked.

    Rest Mian-50 has given some excellent pointers in post #3.

    I was a "hammer only" guy also until I got my one-and-only Glock, a 43X. Not sure if I would trust any other, but after about 5000 rounds through the Glock I am convinced it is the best carry gun I've ever had. I've carried Hi-Powers, Makarovs, P228s, and CZ82s for years, but those are only range guns now.

    I've shot Glocks, Caracals, Taurus 24/7 but I am still firmly wedded to the nice big hammer concept. All of my currently owned and previously owned handguns have hammers in em.

    There is nothing wrong with new CF98. They have improved the magazine a bit.

    Canik TP9 vs Taurus 92 debate will be endless. It depends more on your need than our opinion. Otherwise both are totally different platforms. I prefer Striker Fired because of consistency in trigger pull for every shot and absence of safety. Safety creates hurdle and doubts.

    If you are afraid of your gun (any gun), you need to shoot it more. You need to practice more. Get a good kydex holster (the one with Canik is good). Practice trigger discpline. You will be good.

    43X is easy to carry with a very good grip, way better then 26.

    And they are even better with 15 round Shield mags!
