Jeff Gibson: Check it again after its had as many rounds fired through it as the others.
There is a break in period for barrels. Also barrel length makes a big
StratonachoArg: So you're saying that if i get hit by a bullet coming from a Tanfoglio i'll
be fine? Should i be affraid of CZs?
cazorp: Ok, after shooting my Shadow yesterday 25 meters with Magtech 9F (95
grains) grouping less than 2" on international precision target I am
convinced this gun will support all my needs for precision, field shooting
as well as IPSC production. I will test my friends Stock III with same ammo
over cronograph to verify if we get deviation as you did, I'll reply back
to you in that case.
frasian78: wow, that was pretty fascinating. I wouldn't of expected that much a
difference. thanks for posting.
nathoi: no doubt...the cz sp01 shadow is the shooters choice at IPSC.in fact, this
is the winningest pistol there.take note CZ pistols are copied by most
european FA makers and that includes Tanfoglio.
Gerard Lee: they gave you a new barrel? so the barrel was the problem.. post a new
video on it
BurnDuration: The velocity differences are from variations in the ammo loading: bullet
weights, powder charge, and overall weight. Variations in MOA accuracy is
due to the barrel and ammo. You could blame lead or copper build up, but
Alphatrg22: Have you tried copper jacketed bullets. I find that in my SPO1, for the
same bullet head weight and powder drop, my FPS for copper jacketed hollow
points is higher than using Lead Round Nose. I will be trying the same JHP
bullets with the Tanfoglio and will be checking them via chronograph - I am
expecting the same results as the SP01.
cz75i: First, it registered lower velocity than my CZ75B and CZ75 Shadow using
same reloading data and because of this, I failed to make the minimum Power
Factor of 125 in 2 sanction level I match for production division. Second,
I am disappointed with its grouping too many fliers compare with the CZ
pistols. Maybe only this particular unit I purchased, is a lemon. But I am
really disappointed with this pistol so I returned it with the above video
copy. I hope Tanfoglio will do something about It.
cz75i: You made right decision in choosing the CZ Shadow, no doubt its an
excellent pistol like my Shadow I have no complain against it. It shoots
well and fit my hand perfectly. I maybe bias because most pistols I have
are CZ (including CZ 75 IPSC Standard in .40 S&W) and they didn't gave me
any problem in performance or mechanical wise. I tried the Stock III
because it has good reviews from gun forum and endorsed by Eric Grauffel.
And because it has the same feel and structure as the Shadow.
matt lirette: Tanfoglio barrels in general are slower then normal. I run a limited custom
(.40) and a eric gold (.38 super) I receive the same problem as you when I
create a new load (lower then normal velocities). I just bump up my powder
charge to meet power factor. Don't loose faith yet :)
Alphatrg22: Great post! I have my eye on the TZ SIII. Lesson learned - break in the
barrel of the TZ before using the same loads with the CZ. Thank you.
Johnny Pike: I will take a CZ 75 SHADOW any day, hands down.
leonardimas1: taht's right, be happy
cazorp: Thanks for sharing, I was considering the Stock III, but someone told me I
should go for the original, so I bought SP-01 Shadow instead. Haven't
really tested it out yet, but what is it that makes you dissapointed with
the Stock III? IPSC rules
cz75i: If you happen to compete in IPSC sanctioned matches like in production
division, it makes alot of difference because even you will score all aphas
in all courses of fire of the match but your pistol fails the chronograph
test you will get zero score for the whole match & you will just be
competing for fun. IPSC matches requires accuracy, power and speed. By the
way, Tanfoglio replaced the barrel of my stock 3 and it now gives similar
velocity as my CZs pistols and a tight grouping. I'm happy.
Stephen Aniceto: I also found out that the barrel of the Stock III needs a lot of FMJ for
break-in. My Shadow is good to go out of the box. But I have my eyes set on
the Stock II instead :)
Gun Basics Philippines: Great video! Very helpful data and appropriate comparison!
leonardimas1: you don't speak from the targeted precision,only the speed,but what you
thing,30 or 40 fps make the difference??the precision is important,an the
Tanfoglio you can adjust the visor for the side,the CZ75 can the not adjust
the visor,little thing but must important when you wont a calibratet and
stone4bread: Is the barrel shorter on the TZ? What is causing the drop in velocity?
BJ AMMO: Is incredible the diference bettwen CZ and TANFOGLIO power factor IPSC , I
buy Tanfoglio STOCK III and sell CZ SHADOW, I think that make a mistake
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
