Finally picked up my TPH from my local dealer

Finally picked up my TPH from my Michigan dealer (took the dealer in Illinois a week and a half to get it up here, oh well).

Looks like the one blue magazine I got with the gun is actually marked Walther (I originally thought it was a Triple K mag.)

While I was waiting for my gun to arrive, I was able to pick up two Walther stainless steel magazines with another blue one on the way. Just for grins, I picked up 2 Triple K mags also to have as spares. So far, all the mags seem to function just fine with A-Zoom dummy rounds. Will get to the range next week.






Real happy with this gun. The test target that came with it says June 1992 for test date.

This is too nice to ever carry it in my pocket so I am now on a search for a stainless steel Interarms TPH also.

Wow, that is a beauty. Looks like it was ridden not at all, and put up dry.
Nice catch. If you really want to use one, stainless is the answer.

What moon says is true ,I have SS TPH IN .22 that resides in my right front pocket everyday, first thing in unless it went in before I put them on . Mine functions best on CCI mini mags or velocitors that is what works best so why fool with anything else ? Rides in a uncle Mike's holster btw ,I have worn out two of them . Ayb

The most important carrying difference between the German and the U.S.-made TPH is weight, and the difference is instantly felt. All the U.S. guns --both stainless or blue--have steel frames, which was a pity, since the Ulm guns all have dural frames.

Of course the German slides will rust, and the dural frame is less robust (especially if dropped), but the German guns generally are more accurately made to the drawings, and therefore they generally work. When a Ranger TPH works flawlessly, it's a happy accident.

Neither of them, however, is worth a damn in double-action.

That was my plan, 30-odd years ago, but I never found a reliable one back then, and not for lack of trying.
The last two have run 100%, but in limited shooting. I'd like to stumble on to a .25, but they're pricey.

There are better 'all the times' these days, but the TPH is just so darn neat.


Mike is right; the double action is hernia-inducing.

The .25 cal TPH is more reliable because the rimless cartridge stacks better in the magazine, and because its FMJ bullet is more forgiving of minor misalignment in feeding than the soft-nosed lead bullets of .22 rim fire, which easily stub.

On the other hand, I have a late Ranger TPH in blue that was subjected to a documented reliability test of 1,000 rounds, which it completed with only 5 stoppages, three of which were directly charged to defective Remington ammunition (and the other two could not be isolated). That is superb performance for any semi-auto .22 rifle or pistol, and better than one could expect from the ammunition, which was notorious for duds.

I've often wanted one of those, but preferably in .25acp. I've even toyed with the idea of the Iver Johnson version....

Therein lies the rub with using a defensive .22 auto. Even CCIs can fall short of perfection, tho' Mike's 1k test is impressive (with Rem golden turdlets!), and surprising.
Got a Smith .22 Centennial for our daughter; she didn't have the time or inclination to practice with something bigger, and the revo solves the ammo issue.

Range report

Tried out the TPH at the range today.

I have a blued magazine marked Walther and two stainless steel magazines marked Walther.

All three functioned flawlessly. I tried Federal bulk "target grade" ammo, CCI MiniMags, and CCI Stinger ammo. All of it functioned flawlessly.

Did not check for a group but I was hitting a paper coffee cup at 10 feet every time. I thing this thing is good to go.

Talked to a guy at a West Michigan gun show Saturday. He says he may want to sell a stainless TPH but he has no magazines for it. If I can get it between $300 to $400, I will pick it up.

I am real excited about this TPH. Really appreciate all the info I got off of this forum since I did not know much about them until recently.
