Update

 

MFCEO speaks:

 

 

 

If you want to run a stock 2, you will probably screw around with a few spring weights. The recoil spring (obviously) needs to get messed with. The hammer spring will get messed with. A 13lbs spring will work fine... if you adjust the firing pin. The henning pin that works with the firing pin block is the pin that is best at popping stuff. That is the pin to buy. You don't need to buy any other shit if you don't want to. If you polish stuff you should get a decent trigger. If you buy all the EGD stuff and fit it properly you will probably get a better trigger.... but not by much. I do not recommend buying the EGD stuff.... but if you want it I will sell it to you.

A lot of headway has been made in the last year. Hands down the best product on the market for USPSA shooters is the new henning pin that works with the firing pin block. If you rock that your gun will pop stuff pretty good.

 

Visiting 'Ben's Corner' in the pro shop yields a clue:

 

Only one Tanfo part (aside from the basepads) featured:  Dat Firing Pin from Henning

 

Original Post pre Update

 

Seems to be sparse info on tuning Tanfos.

 

DYVG has a ton of info in his diary thread and there's some info on Enos.

 

Why shouldn't Doodie have the best info available?

 

So what if you have a Tanfo and have tuned it - post the model, work you've done or have had done, and the results.

 

I just bought a Stock III and a CZ SP-01.  I put a few hundred dollars in CGW pieces in the CZ and it's really really great now.  

 

I'm not sure what to do with the Stock III.  I don't want to swim too deep in the light primer territory.

Tuning your Tanfo is not a daunting task, Gump did it

Things are going as expected.

If you have a "tuned" CZ or Tanfo, it's a little late for this sentiment isn't it?   


No one likes me, and I don't care.

It's my understanding ball point pens contain the baller ass spring replacement for what I just lost.

Inside the frame - sear  cage - probably needs more light.

Plunger spring is now AWOL.

 

Down on your hands and knees..find that bitch.  You know it is a few feet from your work bench, unless, of course, it left under "spring loading", and bounced off the wall, and is now behind a desk or something. 

 

Do not sleep until you find it.

 

The longer it takes you to find it, the more satisfying it will be once you do.   Like the parable of the lost coin.

Yes, but try a few different springs until you find the right one that does make it lighter but also strong enough to make it reset properly. I also found the CZ sear spring and RP-TRS from CGW are nice too and fit in Unicorns

It's the kitchen.  It will not be found.  Ever.

I like Tanfos, but it's fucking stupid that gun costs what it does and needs more money in parts thrown at it to make almost as good as a Shadow at 2/3 the price. 

 

2 piece sear = ghey. 

not even a delta hammer = ghey.

What's it doing in the kitchen?  You gotta man cave it if you are going to take stuff apart.

 

I would be tearing that place apart until I found that spring.  That's just me though, I have trouble giving up on stuff like that.
