I've been looking for a steel, DA/SA compact 9mm for a while to add to my carry rotation. I wanted something that held more than 10rounds and had a thumb safety and decocker. Today I decided to look for a 3rd gen S&W 9mm. I hoped to find a 3913 or 5913 but had no luck. I did, however, stumble across a gun that I always swore I'd buy if I ever came across one for a good price. 10 minutes and $275 cash later I left with what may very well be an awesome addition to my CCW lineup.
The gun is a Tanfoglio TA90 compact (BTA90). It has a 3-1/2" barrel and is 7" OAL. The gun is a DA/SA with a thumb decocker/safety. The hammer will half cock as well. The DA trigger pull is pretty stout but smooth and very predictable. Stacking is minimal and the gun feels amazing in my hand. It came with 2 14 round mags, box and cleaning kit.
I stripped it down and lubed the rails and springs. With the exception of the slide-mounted decocker, it is almost identical to my brother's PCR but I don't have them side by side to compare at the moment.
I snapped a few pictures with my Blackberry (sorry for the quality)
