    hi guys, i was checking the armscor website and saw pictures of the company's new pistol. It looks like a cz. Did they manufacture it? Is it available locally? Magkano kaya ang mga ito? any info will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Those pistols look very much like Tanfoglios. As you know, Armscor imports Tanfoglios knocked-down and assembles them here in the Philippines. Maybe for the AP/APP series, Armscor no longer uses the name "Tanfoglio".

    I bought a Tanfoglio from them 3 years ago. I subsequently sold it - simply because I wanted a Glock. The guy who bought the Tanfoglio from me still lets me shoot it. I like it.

    The price used to be in the P21,000-P25,000 range. For that price, I'd say it's a good gun. I'd suggest the all-steel.

    Thank you sir! I wonder if they have the all steel pistol available sa local gunstore. I really would like to see this one.

    My Tanfoglio 9mm looks exactly like the Armscor "AP 9" (the full-size 9mm. where both slide and frame are steel). I think it is exactly the same.

    If you would like to shoot it at Northstar in Makati, or just inspect it, PM me. I have it in my office.

    I like this gun. I might eventually buy another one. In retrospect, it is more appropriate for me than the Glock I bought (and subsequently sold). The all-steel Tanfoglio is almost twice as heavy as the (polymer frame) Glock, and I personally like heavy guns as they are easier on my arthritic finger joints.

    The Tanfoglio is kind of like a clone of the CZ-75/85, at roughly half the price. Tanfoglio parts are used for most of the CZ-type pistols in the world (the Jericho, the Springfield P9, etc.). In the U.S.,the Tanfoglio is called a "Witness", and is imported by EAA.

    Thank you for clearing it up for me, the witness was the first CZ clone that i ever tried, i like the way it handles, better than the NZ pistol.

    I hope may tatak armscor ang mga pistols na ito. Most of my firearms are "made in the Philippines", I have an Armscor 1911, a SAM 1911, an Elisco, a Squires Bingham .38, an armscor shotgun... Buti nalang may .380 na Star to break the monotony. ;f
