Hows the glass on the Swampfox? I've been seeing that the glass gets scratched pretty easily Well, the glass looks pretty good so far, but I'd think any glass could get scratched if not cared for properly. I will treat like a camera lens as much as possible... no scratches are good, but remember yo...

I've cut way back on my shooting. I have some factory ammo, but mostly I reload. I have plenty of components at the moment, more than enough to get me through this year of casual shooting and competitions here. Big problem is primers, just like everyone else. I have a good number in stock but how to...

That sight isn't optimal for the TP9SFx, or most other slide-mounted options. It's really more for a rail-type mount, such as you would find on some other pistols, and on some rifles, like the MSR, for instance. Don't know if there's anything available that will help you with mounting that sight on ...

Welcome to the forum, and Congratulations! I'm sure you'll love your TP9SFx's! I have two, and use them for USPSA. Have them set up for Carry Optics. It's not a bad place to start at all.

I bought my first handgun in 1972, a Ruger Blackhawk .357 which I still have. I carried both a M1911 and M9 in the Marines. When I shot Bullseye, I used appropriate guns, which was 1911's and High Standards. Love 'em. When I went looking for a hunting handgun, I bought appropriate guns, like a Conte...

I am a new SFX owner. I took the gun out tonight for the first time and ran 150 rounds of 124gn hand loads through it. The gun ran really well, I did all the spring mods, and the accuracy was excellent. That said, the slide release is very sharp and was digging in just below the base of my thumb. I...

I have been reloading for 60 years. I really enjoy it when I get a new caliber and I am "Fine Tuning It". I happen to be working up a 357 Sig round right now. [/quote] I've been reloading for a while, too. Try making some .357 SIG from .40 S&W. Works great. I do use a Wilson Headspace ...

I got the Justice installed on my new-to-me TP9SFx, but haven't shot it yet. Hopefully I'll get that taken care of soon!! Looks good and seems to be working perfectly. I do like the slightly larger window over my other reflex sight.

Hi FrankW. The SWAMPFOX I picked up has the "wake-on-movement" feature too, and it seems to be working fine so far. I took the "new" (to me) SFx apart to clean and inspect. It seems to be one of the older models with the black finish on the Slide components; firing pin block and ...
