John Archer’s EAA (Tanfoglio) Limited Pro

John Archer just sent us this image of his EAA (Tanfoglio) Limited Pro set up for Carry Optics. John says the Limited Pro is “a little lighter than the Stock II, so it is easier to make weight in Carry Optics — as shown it’s 44.9 oz.” Apparently Limited Pro’s have become VERY hard to find lately because of that. John uses a TF basepad on his first magazine each and every time. “It runs great. Flawless for 600-800 rounds.”


CZ-75 “Speed Wedge”

Tanfo Triple Threat Wedge webCZ’s made by Tanfoglio or CZ are all the rage in competitive circles right now.

Our new “Speed Wedge” sets a new standard for speed and security in competition basepads.

The compact “wedge” design eliminates “hooking loss,” and “squares off” the magazine, helping stabilize the magazine in your hand during a speed  reload (look for a detailed video on this topic soon).The one-ounce weight gives the magazine a more neutral feel. There are many reasons why this design is superior, leading to faster, more-predictable reloads — but don’t take our word for it. Try one, and if you don’t like it, send it back for a full refund.

We’re confident that once you try them, you’ll wonder why you would use anything else.

You’ll find versions for the popular Tanfoglio K-type, and the Mec-Gar small-frame CZ-75 (Shadow) in the TF store. CZ-built CZ mags require slightly different retainer hole placement (look for that here soon!)

These are slightly too long for USPSA/IPSC “Production” competition, but they’re a fantastic, low-cost way of making your stock mags work with any of the aftermarket magwells.

CZ SP01 Shadow Basepads Coming (Update: Have Arrived!)

CZ triple threat

This week we’re proving out a basepad for the popular CZ SP01 and CZ SP01 “Shadow” pistols. Drawing on cues from our old “Drop-Away” line, and the great JJ Racaza, we’re hoping to offer something that performs optimally during the all-important reload. Our new take on the Production-legal basepad (enhancing the CZ’s strong suit) leads the way for a 140mm model for 3-Gunners and USPSA shooters. We’re already into “revision C” on the Production basepad — we’re tweaking it to work with multiple CZ mag types. Northwest CZ driver Hwansik “Sheek” Kim in particular really helped us understand the subtleties of CZ mags.

Update: The “Speed Wedge” is here! Find it in our store here:
