This was a substantial undertaking, and Tanfoglio deserves a lot of credit and appreciative thanks from everyone. The photos illustrate clearly how the parts fit with one another, which is very useful knowledge.

A word of caution, however. Actually taking the gun apart is not as simple as it appears and putting it back together can be frustrating unless one knows the tricks. The PP-series pistols easily are damaged by improper stripping techniques.

It is strongly urged that no one be tempted by these photos to remove the barrel from the frame as shown. The barrel was selected for a press fit and NOT intended to be removed except for replacement.

Reinstallation of the barrel is best accomplished with a fixture that supports the frame boss against distortion and assures accurate radial alignment. If the frame boss is swaged slightly oversize by frequent or maladroit insertion and removal of the barrel, you will wind up with a barrel that wobbles. If the radial alignment is slightly off, driving the retaining pin back in may raise a bump into the bore. Neither of these iatrogenic happenings is easily or cheaply remedied.

Amazing.... simply amazing...
I bet that took a lot of work.. I don't want to think about how many times you washed your hands while going back and forth taking the gun appart and washing your hands to take pictures

Das hat bestimmt lang gedauert und war sehr viel arbeit
Wie oft hast Du die Haende gewascht waehrend Du die Pistole zerlegt hast und Bilder gemacht hast
