Defence&Law Enforcement POLYMER
The Tanfoglio production has its origins in the defence area, both private and professional, the company's commitment for research and development applied to produce these kind of models is constant and continuous.
Besides the production of models made entirely of steel, it has grown and consolidated the manufacture of models with frame made in techno-polymer: a kind of special high-strength plastic material that gives lightness to the pistol, that is an useful feature for the port continued, and the shape of the polymer frame is ergonomic and ensures an excellent grip. For defence models the safety system has been studied with accuracy and Tanfoglio has implemented several safety control systems: “cocked and locked” safety mounted on the frame (F VERSION), ambidextrous firing pin safety mounted on the slide that works as a hammer decocker (R VERSION): all models has automatic firing pin safety. Even the size is important for defence pistols: so Tanfoglio offers size variants of slide, barrel and slide length to cover the different grip needs (Full size, Carry, Compact), that depend on hand size, and to change the overall pistols dimensions, that influence the port. Force ESSE model is the first Tanfoglio pistol with “Striker Fired” system.
