View Full Version : Sbr: Dsarms B&t Tp9

Gun in question:

1. Is engraving on a polymer frame going to require a specialist?
2. Anyone have experience with this gun and want to share their thoughts on the board? I am in the process of reading reviews on the internet etc...
3. I thought I read that a .45ACP version of the TP9 was being worked on. Am I dreaming or is this true?

thanks in advance!

I don't know how you'd engrave on polymer. I'd fire off an email to Orion if I were you, and ask his opinion.

I can only help you with number #2....

I've had mine about a month now and shot it several times (approx 500rd total).

Reliability has been good, although I have noted that if the mag is completely full (30rds), the first round won't always feed; the HP will catch on the feed ramp. Loading only 29rds works and feeds fine.

Accuracy off a rest is excellent, I've been able to keep all but 2 of 30 rounds in the 10 ring of a B27 target (~3") @25yds.

Offhand accuracy is very good, although the pistol is in the 4lb neighborhood loaded with a light and EoTech, which gets tiring holding out after a while. Rapid fire is extremely easy to control, and 30 rounds gives you a ample reserve. Magazine changes are smooth and quick. A stock and foregrip would really help stabilize the weapon and I may end up SBR'ing mine at some point.

Recoil is dampened by the mass, although it has a different recoil pulse than most Browning style locking mechanisms. Almost has a delayed recoil feel to it.

Cleaning is a bit more involved than your typical handgun, although it was easier than most rifles.

All in all it should make a nice home defense handgun.

I sent them an e-mail a while back inquiring about other potential calibers and after about a week I got an e-mail back stating .45 was due to come out soon but no other calibers were on the table.

Is the back of the gun stock-ready so that after it is SBR'ed the DSA stock can be snapped into place or is there machine work that will need to be done?

It appears to be predrilled and ready to go. Once you get the paperwork and you can snap it on.:D
