    I'm strongly for you taking it out and shooting it.

    I'm also strongly for seeing some pics of the pristine Christmas gift before you shoot it then pics of the targets you have shot.

    I'm strongly opinionated that you should provide a range report that includes handling characteristics, trigger feel, accuracy, reliability and listing the types of ammo used.

    Otherwise I don't have much of an opinion on these yet. I hear a lot of good things about performance and price. So, it would be nice to hear more from someone who owns a brand new one and has put their first rounds through it.

    Seriously I don't have any hands on experience with the TP9SA. Some folks don't like the idea that it is a single action version of the striker fired design and has a manual decocker. Their argument is that if you decock it your trigger is dead, unlike with the TP9 which allows the trigger to reset the striker.

    My personal opinion is "don't use the Decocker unless you are getting ready to disassemble the pistol. Then it is like most other striker fired pistols, but with a trigger that is regarded as being one of the lightest, smoothest striker fired triggers out there, with a positive reset. Is it too light for safe carry? I don't know. Would it make a good IPSC or IDPA gun? Quite possibly.

    The price is hard to argue against when they are cheaper than most other similar guns, like Glock, Springfield, and S&W. They are built in a factory that meets NATO standards.

    Definitely SES like a pistol worth trying out.

    I got the TP9V2 (DA/SA version) a few weeks ago. 500 rounds and no hangups whatsoever at this point. It is possibly the best pistol deal on the US gun market at the moment. Cerakoted slide, steel sights, two 18 round mecgar mags and a case full of other goodies for the price they are asking is too good to pass up.

    The only upgrade I have made to mine at this point was to improve the DA pull slightly and that was a surprisingly easy job. The factory DA and SA were not bad by any means but making it better looked easy (and was easy) so I did it anyway. Didn't have to polish the feed ramp as it was sporting a mirror finish out of the box. Next step: find a good set of night sights for it.

    After tweaking the trigger, accuracy was maybe a little easier to squeeze out of it. Pic is after 18 rounds at 10 yards with a fairly quick pace. [​IMG]

    I've heard nothing but good about this pistol. I also hear that the trigger is one of the best out there. Some are using them in IDPA matches.

    I have to ask-
    Did you take it apart and clean it first, removing the grease that comes on and in it?
    Reloads or factory ammo?
    Round nose or hollow points?
    Limp wristing or firm hold?
    You say jammed? Do you mean fail to eject? Or fail to load?

    The reason I am asking is because- I'm thinking of buying one.

    More info please!

    What brand of ammo?

    What was the first type of jam?

    Have you taken it apart again to see if anything broke or shifted after your initial reassembly? I would do a quick disassemble to check for any obvious problems.

    Every mfg. Can release a lemon. How they take care of it is what counts.

    What do you suspect to be the problem?

    Does the slide feel like it is hanging anywhere when you rack it? Does the extractor move easily?
    Firing 50 rounds with no problem and then starting to have failures to feed is odd - that usually works the other way around.

    What ever happened here? I notice they have a lifetime warranty to the original owner. Have you had any luck getting this going? Have you tried their customer service? If you did, how did they handle it?

    I have a TP9SA. 300 rounds and no problems with function at all. I love the trigger. The ammo I used Fiocchi, Federal, Magtech and Perfecta. I all cycled and was accurate enough to please me,

    Very good to hear. It would be nice to know if a warranty issue came up and how it was handled.

    Mostly all I find on the net about these is how good they run, or how the Decocker makes the whole gun worthless because people have to be too stupid to not push the button because it is there. Obviously training or understanding of the system could never be expected.

    I mean it's a wonder guys in 1912 could learn how to flip a lever down to disengage a safety switch.

    I now have a more vested interest in how these guns perform. I suppose I'll find out fairly soon. Ran into a deal that was hard to pass up.
