First video I've ever watched from this site, and just wanted to say that I found it done well. The gentleman in the video had a good tone and cadence, and injected as much humor as you can in such videos. Informative, with no wasted time insofar as a limited review can be.
John E. Burns
I am a Class 3-FFL dealer. Nice to See a New Product. Looks like it is Compatible with Alot of other Products. Is this a Standard 10rd. or Higher Capacity Weapon? How many mags with the Gun comes with it,(2) or(1)? Is it Ready to shoot or does it Require a Break-In period. a couple hundred FMJ's to go thru the gun, Feed Ramp Break-In? Looks like a good Weapon. What is the Price?
Ammunition Depot
Yes, Glock pattern iron sights, Sig P226 magazines, and Springfield XD pattern holsters. Each model features an optics cut as well. They come with 2 mags, one 18-round, and one 20-round magazine. While Ammunition Depot has not done extensive testing, there was no perceived break-in period necessary. The guns all performed very well at the range.
I have four Tisas 1911 all steel models patterned virtually identically to the M1911's. If it didn't have the Tisas logon on the slide, a lot of people wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I know the small differences like others, but that's only because people like me and the others that know every 'flaw' are just sick individuals. Most people aren't sick in that respect. Mentally sick, yea, but not firearm knowledgeable sick. I've not had any issues. The Tisas even fit real John Browning Colt parts right down to the mags and for 3/4 less in price of a 'real' 1911 I'll take it.
I bought the Tisas PX9 gen 1 several years ago and is still solid and excellent condition. I have put through 600-700 rounds without any malfunctions and very accurate. There are a lot of good reviews on YouTube to verify.

I bought a Tisas Zigana PX9 Gen 2 about 2 yrs ago.... solid gun, accurate as heck. I love it. Price is great, fits well in the hand, trigger is nice. Had 3 buddy's shoot it and want to buy it from me. NO WAY I'll sell this gun.
What about the threaded barrel you didn’t talk about that
Ray Cote
Somewhat interested but am retired and I need to have an idea of the cost, so we can figure out our finances.
Dain Frantz
They're super cheap right now, if you look around you can find them online for under $250.
Non threaded duty is 299.00 give or take new. Just picked one up 289 new.
Hugh triggs
Great review, spoke at the level understandable to most gun buyers. Very clear and I did not have to rewind it three times to understand it. I'm looking now to find it in the 400 dollar price range, the add is showing it between 500.00 and 600.00 range. Still a nice weapon at that cost point.
Not for the non threaded duty, just picked mine up 289.00 new. Threaded is roughly 20-30 more I think. The tactical is around 509 price I believe.
Hugh triggs
I just got off the phone with a dealer. Thought I would pass this on to those interested in buying this weapon. They will not ship this weapon with the 15 round mags to a State that has a mag capacity restriction. They do not make a ten round version nor can they advise an after market or other model that manufactures a ten round mag. When I asked if the price would be reduced if the mags were not included they said " no" . Suggested I get some mags and have them pinned by my FFL dealer, I told them I'm not a fan of that because it puts stress on the spring and leads to jams.
John Owens
The PX9 gen 3 is going for about $400 on another site. Threaded barrel and 2 mags. 1-18 and 1-20rd.
Gen 2 is a great piece for the money. Large profile but well balanced.
David McBride
Very satisfied owner. Sweet trigger. Nice buy

I purchased the Tisas PX9 about 9 months ago and I love this pistol ! Have run about 500 rounds on various brands of ammunition through it and haven't had any problems with this pistol ! An affordable handgun , easy to adjust to your hand with several back straps & side panels , recoil is not a problem , very nice trigger , full size grip . I'm not spending big money for a pistol when this pistol does all I need it to give me a peace of mind , just to mention a certain brand ! My FFL dealer that received my Tisas PX9 , the 2 young men really liked the looks , the style , & working mechanics of this handgun and had never heard of this name , they do now !

I purchased the Tisas PX9 Gen 3 in 9mm well over a year ago. Being new in this market, I didn’t want to spend more money than needed and especially for a brand name! I am still learning the semi automatic world but I love this pistol! I feel confident in the size and grip as well as the functionality and accuracy of this pistol. I found magazines, holsters, and ammunition before the latest rise of costs. I paid a hair over $300 shipped to my gun shop. I have to admit that I am tight or frugal, so I feel that I found a diamond in the rough before many others and before popularity runs the price upward!
