    I got one of these Defiant Limited Masters in 9mm Large Frame. The slide racks effortlessly, the two stage trigger breaks at 2.3lb out of the box. It is also so accurate out to 50yds with the LPA dovetail fully adjustable sights that come on it you have to experience it to believe it. I handload and mine seems to prefer 125gr RN hi-tek polymer coated cast bullets with Alliant Sport Pistol as well as Hodgdon CFE Pistol powder. I am a gunsmith and cerakote applicator as well and cerakoted mine and upgraded both magazines with +6 mag base extensions with the longer springs from Patriot Defense. This pistol is addicting to shoot I warned you.

    Great Pistol, Great Company

    The limited master needs no introduction. It is a great competition pistol. Besides its performance, it is a beautiful pistol, all steel and highly refined. Patriot Defense is awesome to deal with. I did not know the pistol needed to be ordered from their distributor. The only thing I would suggest would be to increase communication with customers. I finally emailed to find out the status and was told about stocking and shipping. Once shipped it arrived in 2 days. I would highly recommend PD for Tanfoglio because these can be tough to acquit at a good price, and I got a good price.

    I am in the process of acquiring the large frame versions of these guns in .38SA, 9MM, .40S&W, 10MM, and .45ACP. These are beautiful firearms, very well made and a pleasure to shoot.

    10 mm

    It is about what I expected. A heavy piece of steel and well made. I've fired 100 rounds of two different brands of 180 grain factory ammunition without issue. It is more than accurate enough for me.

    As far as value goes (for the money), I don't believe you can purchase a higher quality, more accurate, well-crafted, precision shooting handgun than this. An out-of-the-box competition grade pistol that can match others costing far more ... it will take you pretty deep into the competitive realm before you'll need to upgrade.

    IFG Tanfoglio Defiant Limited Master 10mm

    This is an exceptional piece of craftsmanship and beauty! The fit and function being flawless is just the start - the ergonomics and weight make shooting this a dream. First trial on accuracy with handloaded 180 grain FMJ-FP was <1.00" at 15 yards and <1.75" at 25 yards and with my aging eyes on iron sights I consider that damn good! Couldn't be happier with this purchase - currently deciding what my next IFG Tanfoglio model will be!
