Armscor MAPP1 inbound

I have a MAPP1 inbound to my FFL.
2 15 round mags and case for a bit over 400.00
I have heard/read the Tangfalio history as well as the reputation of Armscor's 1911 pistols.
My question to you fellow cap busters is who has actually shot one or owns one?
Just looking for some experience and info.

Thanks

It's the middle of the afternoon on a day when most people are at work, and you think waiting just two hours for a reply about an arguably non-mainstream pistol is too long?

Give people a chance.

I had the same model about a year ago,they are a lot like the EAA Witness Polymer.Was a nice shooting pistol.A bit hard to find holsters for it.I did not have single malfunction as long as I owned it,I probably had 500 rounds or so thru it.Very nice single action trigger,the double action pull was a bit stiff although.I gave it to my son as a home protection piece.

I have a tanfoglio witness polymer in .45. I love it. Probably about 6,000 rounds sent through it. It has a lot of issues with flat nose ammo with FTF. Cycles ball ammo perfectly though. Still love the gun. Plus FMJ is cheaper.

Thanks Flash!
That's good to hear. I was able to hold a Witness in 9mm at my FFL's house and am really looking forward to having this one in a few weeks.
Unloaded you can really feel the weight difference with a poly.

Thanks, how do you like yours? Anything you are not happy with?
I am also curious if the Armscor can swap slides and change caliber?
Love to switch this into a fun 22, my gut says "no".

EAA makes the conversion kit for mine. It's $285.00 for any caliber I want: 9mm, .40, 10mm, or .22lr

Also mine has a terrible time trying to feed flat nose rounds... I just have to drop it off to my gunsmith for a ramp polish job from what I hear.. No big deal. Like I said before tons of rounds through it

Tangfolio licensed CZ clone made in the Philippines.

Confused yet?

Armscor has better QC than Turkish clones, so I've been told, but my C100 Canik is a tank.

Long story short it'll more than likely work and be very accurate and last a long time.

Nope was never confused as to the guns lineage.
I know some will say for "XXX" more you could get a true CZ,
But this shop takes lay away and it's the only to pick up new guns without breaking the bank.

I have the Italian made version of this gun. I got it for less than you're getting yours for but mine only came with one magazine and a much smaller box so a pair of sixes really. It has been very reliable out of the box except with my flat point reloads which fail to feed with a full magazine, although as it is getting broken in this problem seems to be resolving itself. I need to go reload and shoot some more. It's been flawless with FMJs. Haven't tried hollow points yet.

Mmb, that looks like a tanfoglio/eaa witness? Correct? My tanfoglio/witness has a bad time with flat nose ammo...

Thanks for that info mmb
The flat nose issue seems to be reoccurring out there.
Hopefully it can break in.
We will see

Yes, it's a Witness P-S, made by Tanfoglio. Polishing the feed ramp helped a lot as well as shooting it a bunch. It cured the flat point issue in my 9mm Witness Match too. My 45 Match never had the problem although my 45 P Carry has several issues I'm still working out. It will feed flat points now, except for the first round out of the magazine. If I load one into the chamber by hand it will feed the rest. The P Carry has been kind of a pain in the ass but I'm not ready to give up on it yet. It's too good looking for a polymer framed pistol and I really like the concept.

Armscor has better CS than EAA too, I think if you are wanting one of those Tanfoglio models, you are better off going through Armscor because of their awesome CS!

Well I paid off the lay away and my FFL called me and will let me pick her up today.
Feels like Christmas morning!
