Patriot Defense | Tanfoglio Interrupter R5


Parts included: R5 Interrupter & Pin

NOTE: For a trouble free install with the R5 interrupter we recommend you have the Xtreme Sear and Titan Hammer installed on your pistol. These two items are a must if your looking for a trouble free install on your firearm.

Please read the below product description before purchasing. Some pistols will require fitting due to the vast amount of machining tolerance variations in these pistols. The supplied pin is designed to float in the hammer pin holes, use grease to aid in assembly and keep the pin from falling out. Please contact us should you have any question regarding fitting or modifying your R5 interrupter. 

The number one complaint Tanfoglio owners have about their guns…..…the trigger, and its pre-travel.

The Patriot Defense Optimized R5 Interrupter was conceptualized and created off the extremely popular BOLO interrupter. Its sole purpose was to give those who aren't experienced in the inner workings of a Tanfo the ability to have a drop-in part.. Precision CNC machined and heat treated for optimum life and performance to the end user; the R5 Interrupter was machined specifically for the steel frame line of Tanfoglio pistols. Due to feedback we’ve received on the most current configuration of Tanfoglio pistols; most people have the Extreme Sear, and Titan hammer already installed in their pistol. We recommend you already have it installed as well to get the most out of your Tanfoglio firearm and a trouble free install. As mentioned above, with so many changes over the years to the tanfoglio line of pistols the BOLO has required more and more fitting. we set out to have an interrupter that drops in 99% of the time and yields a much better pre-travel than factory. So which one is for you, see below. 


R5- Easy install, very minimal fitting if any is required at all, pre-travel is reduced from factory setup, small amount of take up and solid reset. 

R7- Intermediate install & fitting (material removal will be required from front face of the "leg"), zero- pre-travel can be achieved, and solid reset.

BOLO- Advanced install & fitting required (material will need to be removed from inner curve, nose of the interrupter, and possibly the edge of the wing), zero pre-travel can be achieved, and audible reset.


Note- Installation and fitting advice of the BOLO is no longer offered, only qualified gunsmith should install this part. 


Installation Directions-

Check single action function, first. SA should drop and reset with the slide on. If SA does not break or reset, remove material from the front face of the "leg". This also applies if SA breaks, but does not reset. Check double action function. If DA does not break remove material from the lower edge of the wing. CAUTION: This is an extremely sensitive part of the process, please have a qualified gunsmith fit this part or send your firearm to Patriot Defense for proper fitting.
