The Tisas Company have been producing quality firearms since 1993, but Turkish firearms and craftsmanship go further back than the rifles that threw the allies off the cliffs of Gallipoli. The Turks have been producing weapons for over a century, and the PX9 is no exception to that lineage of quality and craftsmanship.
Originally working to NATO specifications, the company was producing many firearm parts for well-known European brands, then finally branching out with their own models.
Barrels are stainless hammer-forged, which is a superior and stronger manufacturing technique to cutting the rifling into the bore. (Hammering means the steel is compacted to stronger densities and nothing is removed in the process). The slide is stainless steel as well, with a strong polymer frame that is standard throughout the industry with most new modern firearms. Outwardly resembling the Springfield Armoury XD pistol, the safety has been removed from the back strap (think 1911), to the more familiar thumb/slide position. Both the safety and the magazine release are ambidextrous for left and right shooters.
A loaded chamber indicator pin that protrudes from the rear of the slide is visible during the day, and can be manually felt at night. This helps with the transition to modern concealed-hammer firearms for those old souls who still “want to see a cocked hammer” at the rear. The trigger is smooth with a crisp let off at the end, something to experience in our modern world of heavy litigation triggers.
The pistol is dead accurate and can be pressed into service in a host of roles from IDPA or sport shooting, to military and security use. Package includes a hard lockable carry case and a spare magazine.
