    Anyone have one? I'm thinking of getting one or a FN 5.7.

    Definitely looks cool but it's just a semi-auto 9mm with a thirty round mag.
    My glock 17 offers the same thing in a smaller, less expensive, easier to handle package.

    Hmm I already have a glock 17 and 1 33rd mag. Also is legal to install a weapon light with a grip on it?

    $200 tax stamp and a 3 to 6 month paper work wait. Or you can bypass the long process if you own a corporation. Corporations can buy NFA items alot faster than a private citizen I am guessing because there is no one to do a back ground check on?

    A forward grip makes it a "AOW" Any Other Weapon, $200 tax if you do it yourself, a manufacturer can do it for a $5 Tax, but the wait time is the same and you still may have transfer fees involved(not sure) IMO if you are willing to wait the time have it registered as an "SBR" Short Barreled Rifle for $200 and get a stock and a fore grip.

    The TP9 is actually a Steyr clone.

    In my Garage, building a gun:)
    +1 good advice.
    www.dsarms.com are great people to deal with. The gun is made by B&T out of swisserland. They are about as top notch quality as you will every find. DSarms imports them. Good stuff i have been eyeballing it for awhile and now its on the short list number 2 behind a SCAR or ACR witch ever graces us with its presents for under $2000 first.........................:upeyes:

    I have one. Great gun. NEEDS an optic! The sights suck, at least the new style B&T ones do, the older ring style is probably better but it's completely unavailable now. Phased out.

    I'm waiting on my SBR stamp to come back on it this or next week. Already have a custom MK9K adapter for it, ready to roll.

    Still need to actually purchase the stock from DSA (need to show them my Form1) but I've been kicking around just how close the airsoft (iknow!) parts are to the real thing. I've been studying the pics and it looks amazingly accurate, like it was made off the same data for certain).

    If you do get a TP9, I recommend filing for the SBR the day you get it. It's kinda cool as a pistol but AMAZING as an SBR. Makes a great suppressor host as well, gets very very quite. Apparently the action is quieter than the MP5 which is known to get a good host.

    I have one too. I have the Aimpoint Micro sight mounted on mines. I plan on getting another one that already is an SBR. I'll post a pic soon.

    Handled a SBR version at a local shop a while back, I liked it a lot - very light, shoulders and points naturally.

    I put a Vortex SPARC on it, a little bigger than the aimpoint Micro but also a lot less expensive! It's actually been a pretty decent sight so far. If I shot it more than I'd spring for the aimpoint. The gun certainly deserves it.


    Pretty much my feelings on it. As a pistol it's a little heavy. As an SBR it's really very light! What sold me on it was how much smaller and lighter it was compared to an MP5-K and Mini-Uzi.

    I thought I would mention, for anyone that doesn't know. It's a rotating bolt AND barrel gun. Three very expensive very complex parts the bolt, barrel and barrel guide work extremely similar to an AR. Actually, imagine you combined the barrel and bolt on an AR, it works sorta like that. The actual lock up, lugs, and rotation is very AR. Along with the charging handle.

    I like to think of this swiss gun as complex by design simple by execution and my HKs as simple by design and complex by execution. Swiss vs German, no surprises there.
