So....a couple months ago... I had a Kel-Tec, a Ruger LCP and a Taurus TCP all sitting in front of me.
While the Kel-Tec was smaller than the other two, the TCP had the best trigger. So I bought the dang thing on a whim...
After a good cleaning and some light oiling I headed out the the range with whatever ammo I could find in my shop.
The DA only trigger pull is 4.65 pounds on my trigger gauge. Much less than the Ruger or Kel-Tec. So far so good.
The only ammo I could find was:
Hornady Critical Defense,
PMC 90 grain FMJ
and a Box of something called Independence ammo made by Federal with 95 grain FMJ and a nickeled case.
I set up my target in failing light at 15.2 yards. (45.6 feet ) Which is probably the max distance for this type of pop-gun.
15 yard accuracy, five shot groups, average of three groups:
PMC 90gr FMJ, = 2.75 inches. usually 3 shots in 1.0 to 1.5 inch and two flyers.
Crit Def 90gr FTX = 4.0 inches, usually 3 shots in 1.5 inch with two flyers.
Indep 95gr FMJ = 5.0 inches with no consistency.
The PMC ammo never had any problems and the little gun just loves it.
The Hornady Critical Defense ammo had some hang ups with the bullet tip getting hung up on the last round in the mag. Causing a failure to chamber.
The Independence (economy Federal) did not work very well. It had about 30% failure to eject. Plus it does not group well at all. It even ejects the wrong way....compared to the other ammo. It seems that the nickel plated case hang up in the chamber.
NOTE: This gun would not extract live brass when pulling the slide to the rear. When fired it throws the PMS brass to the 4 o'clock position about 6 feet away. When it choices to fire the plated brass stuff it throws the brass weakly in different directions.
The serial number is 5 digits and an A. I have no idea how long it was in my friends shop.
So far I have only fired 60 to 70 rounds and figured I would give it another 100-150 before I become alarmed..
