Default cz 75 clone tanfoglio

So I had an interesting pawn shop find out of the blue, I picked up a tz75 that has hardly been shot but it contains a good bit of holster wear and a tiny bit of rust blemishes where the fingerprints were not wiped off.

These guns are not really worth much collector wise so what I was thinking of having it cerakoted.

Do you guys think this would be a bad idea?

First, it's an excellent gun. I would first shoot it and use it a bit before investing the cost of the gun back into it to refinish it. So then it depends on how bad the finish is.

If it requires it to preserve the metal, then yes. If it's just in pursuit of a minor cosmetic change, then no.

I have several low dollar guns with similar minor pitting or worn finish. To refinish any of them I'd have to spend as much as they each cost. I have not done it on any of them (yet). Time will tell.

Congrats though. High quality Italian pistol.

You could spray and bake it yourself cheap enough. Do some youtube vid watching.

They are good guns. Iíve got a FAB 92 I bought over 30 years ago thats had thousands of rounds through it that still shoots great. FYI...If you ever need springs Wolff has then under EAA and they do a good job explaining the different configurations the Italians used over the years, so you get the right springs.

I donít refinish old guns. Oil them up and enjoy their character.

...and stock spare magazines... Heat treat on some of these is conducive to cracking at the feed lips.

I tend to agree with the "buy more ammo and magazines instead" philosophy unless a gun is in danger of being ruined due to rust or problems needing attention.

That $200 or more is usually better spent on ammo and mags.

I would shoot it and spray paint it.

That is a good thought!

A thorough cleaning and a nice durable spray paint coat will improve the long term durability, not make it worst, is easily reversible, and costs under $10 in materials.

Not a bad idea at all.

Here is my Tanfoglio TA-90 IPSC I bought for competition back in the 90s.



If I remember right, the TZ-75 came in two versions. One with the safety on the frame and one with the safety on the slide. The one on the frame is what I prefer. I despise slide mounted safeties.

Had a TZ compact, was possibly the best 9mm I owned.
Had a roller bearing added to the trigger system, really smoothed out the trigger.

Have been toying with picking up a couple of them, turned a handful into competition guns.

Always likes how they balanced, especially the compact.

Friend picked up an EAA Witness .45, a couple of other gents at hunting camp had them, but the new one was easily good on soda cans out past 40y.

From the looks of it, wipe it down with RIG and shoot the snot out of it. It is already past being a safe queen saved for appreciation.

oh I plan to shoot the snot out of her, but the blueing is pretty worn in some spots so I'm just thinking of protection from future wear, these things are getting hard to come by.

No, they were safeties. I have never seen a decocker on a TZ75 or, a TA90.

Tanfogliio made a lot of different guns but the slide mount safetyís operated by decocking the pistol. If youíve got one thats a normal safety Iíd love to see a picture.

This is all Iíve seen.

Worn blueing kept wiped down with RIG will out last you and I. If you are not familiar with RIG(rust inhibiting grease) it gets into the metal and stays. Used it for well over 1/2 century on my using guns. Take a rag and work some into it then just wipe your gun off before putting it away. Surface damage can be held to a minimum and blueing protected.
