Help Identifying a 9mm pistol

I need help in identifying a 9mm pistol I saw recently. It's 'switches' all looked like the ones on Tanfoglios. Actually the owner says that it is in fact a Tanfoglio but the markings are a bit different. The slide is marked "UPP" and above the grip panel is marked "FT-Made"

I don't know about the "UPP", are you sure it isn't "EAA".

In any case the "FT MADE" ID's it as a CZ-75 clone made by Fratelli Tanfoglio of Italy.

Tanfoglio is the company that actually makes almost ALL the copies of the CZ pistol.

Tanfoglio either manufactures their gun for sale by other companies, OR sells more or less semi-finished parts for other companies to complete and sell under their own names.

Among the pistols produced by Tanfoglio are the:
Swiss Action Arms AT series.
Springfield Armory P9.
European American Armory (EAA) Witness.
FIE TZ series.
Excam TA series.
Israeli IMI Baby Eagle.
And several other makes.

These are usually very serviceable guns, and an excellent buy.
