Tanfoglio Defiant Gold Match OR

by Vern Evans

Fans of the big 10mm just got a new ride. The Tanfoglio Defiant Gold Match OR, imported by Italian Firearms Group, comprises a optics-ready platform bringing 13+1 rounds of the big 10mm to the fight (or match).

Tanfoglio Defiant Gold Match OR Details

Though chambered in 10mm, this build targets the accuracy and speed enjoyed from the Italian gunmaker’s Defiant line of competition pistols. But with the beefy chambering, this one bridges over into the worlds of defense and hunting as well.

The pistol features a single-action trigger system. A butterfly safety delivers ambidextrous use, while the rear sight comes fully adjustable for elevation and windage. A 6-inch bull barrel comes with a 1:16 RH twist. Machined from high-quality steel for accuracy, the barrel sports a hard chrome finish.

The pistols’ frame and bolt also come from CNC processes to high-strength steel. The frame utilizes ports along both sides to help barrel cooling and reduce the pistol’s overall weight. Externally, red, aluminum grips contrast with the black Cerakoted frame.

Optics-Ready Platform

Beautifully pairing with the big 10mm chambering is the optics-ready design, further elevating the platform for hunting pursuits. The rear sight plate removes to swap with a multi-fit optics plate. The system enables hunters and shooters to easily mount a red dot or reflex sight. The optics plate accommodates several popular optics systems, including those with the Shield RMS/SRS and Trijicon RMR footprints.

The Defiant Gold Match OR retails for $2,205. For more info, visit italianfirearmsgroup.com.
