    I had heard on some of the originals the frames were from the Phillipines, but the fitting and finishing was done in Italy. Then on more recent models it was all made in Italy, I'm curious to hear the answer.

    Seeing as I bought a new pistol a week ago I'm not really in the market this minute. I asked as it may be on my radar in the future

    Having said that, a $900 price point makes me think it probably is made in Italy. So get your wallet ready

    Tanfoglio is on Christmas break now, I'll check and let you know whenever I hear back from them.
    We just sold out anyway - next shipment will probably be April.

    Hi Freedom Ventures,

    Did you receive a response from Tanfoglio as to where these are made. Some of your dealers currently have them in stock.

    I'm pretty sure the barrel, slide and frame are made in the Philippines by Armscor. I'm not sure where it's assembled but it's still an Armscor product.

    Actually, we didn't and it slipped my mind. I'll reach out again - we'll open the thread back up as soon as I get that info.

    That's Really Close, 4n2t0!

    Tanfoglio reports
    We are importing the frame (without rails, sear and hammer holes), the slide (without rails, the rear and front dovetails) and the barrel (without chamber) from Armscor while the rest of the components come from local suppliers."
    So yes, the 3 major raw components are made in the Philippines; but the gun is actually built in Italy.
