Hi guy I have a wee problem. I recently bought a 2nd hand Tanfoglio Force pistol in .22lr. I have had some firing problems and took it back to my dealer. The smithy felt it was a firing pin issue. We had problem sourcing a new pin so he made one.

I have only tried it twice since getting it back:
- 30 rounds Winchester Lazer 22lr - 27 fired 3 needed the hamer re-cocked and then they fired.

- 30 CCI Velositor (???) about 22/23 fired and the others wouldn't work at all with re-cocking. I put them in my rifle and then they fired. So ammo ok.

Anyone know whereI can buy a factory made trigger for my pistol. Can't get them here (NI). Do any of you know where I could get them. My father in law lives in Arizona so he can get it for me.

Your help would be appreciated. If I can't get this sorted I will have to get rid of the gun it really is disapointing. It breaks my concentration so I thinking "will it fire" instead of good zeroing, if you know what I mean.

Have you contacted the European or British Isles distributor for Tanfoglio?

EAA (http://www.eaacorp.com/) is the importer for Tanfoglio handguns over here, and I'm not sure that they import one called the "Force" to the States. :o

(It might be long way 'round, but perhaps an email to the folks at EAA, and they could tell you who to contact on your side of the pond?)

Thanks Tamara, I try that. Lesson learned here for me is in future, buy a gun that I can get parts for easilly.

But that takes some of the fun out of it. I do feel your pain though, I had to have a firing pin made for a Bayard .380 years ago.

Big Dog,don't feel alone.

I just bought a Star BM that I'll be grinding down drill bits to make firing pins if they ever break(as they are known to).

I had to have a firing pin made and a Sako extractor fitted on an E. German SSG-82 rifle. Who knew that the commies would use pot metal for the FP and extractor claw on a precision sniper weapon? :o
