Pardini 22 LR pistols

Postby crankythunder » Mon Jul 04, 2011 4:46 pm

Good Afternoon Guys and Gals!

I have been shooting 22 bullseye for a little longer then I care to admit.

Currently own a IZH 35M that is back to the gunsmith getting a new ejector fabricated. There is quite a bit of wear on the pistol and I am considering a replacement. EAA in Florida no longer carries replacement parts.

Anyways, cruising the Larry's guns website, there is the following Pardini's 22 pistols:

Pardini SP 22 lr $1,846.00
Pardini SP "Rapid Fire" 22 lr $2,129.00
Pardini SP1 Electronic $2,258.00
Pardini SP1 Electronic "Rapid Fire" $2,541.00

I have shot pardini SP 22 lr before so I am familiar with these pistols but does anybody know what the difference between a standard and "Rapid Fire" pistol is and can anybody provide comments on the electronic trigger.

Thank you

Hi Cranky
Welcome to GunTalk Online forum. I am sure there are some members here who are acquainted with Pardini Pistols. I am not. Your post peaked my interest tho. Google led me to the Pardini website and I now see why you are posting model questions here. That is one of the sorriest websites for Any manufacturer.. not just a firearms business. In the US, they list only Pardini USA in Florida and Larry's as dealers. For handguns retailing at north of $2K, they sure are keeping the details hidden.

You seem to be Sold on this line of handguns so I will withhold recommendations from other manufacturers. Good luck with your search.. and again. Welcome to the best gun forum on the web.

Welcome to Guntalk-Online.

My understanding of the Pardini SP and SP-1 RF is the main differences are in a lighter weight bolt to dampen recoil and some extra balancing weights mounted up front for enhancing rapid fire sight acquisition.

Electronic triggers allow for a safe and consistent let-off at very low trigger weight settings. Many folks have difficulty getting used to the feel of an electronic trigger - takes a lot of practice to get used to these triggers. However if you're interested in international competition or Olympic Rapid Fire Pistol then having an electronic trigger is essential for competing with the field. If you're just interested in shooting Conventional Pistol (Bullseye) then the SP is plenty of pistol for that. Besides the CP rules have a two pound weight limit on all triggers electronic or otherwise.

They make nice pistols - and pricey.
Bullseye's response is spot on.
FWIW - I have a Pardini Free pistol. It's an old gun now but still marvelously accurate with a trigger that, at 2 ounces, has to be used to be believed.

If I didn't already have Hammerli 208, I'd go Pardini. I think. :D
