TriStar C-100

TriStar Sporting Arms introduced its pistol line in 2012, and has expanded it for 2013. One of its premier new offerings is the C-100, which is manufactured in and imported from Turkey.

The C-100 is a compact clone of the well-known, and greatly respected, CZ-75 design. It features a double/single action; with rear snag-free dovetail sights and a fixed-blade front sight. The manual safety allows the pistol to be carried cocked and locked, with the safety on.

I bought a C100 about a year ago and was impressed with the value for the price. However, as Bill noted in his comment, my C100 also shoots low, even at 5-7 yards. For self defense, I would have to ignore the sights and simply point and shoot. That is unfortunate because the sights, which provide a three-dot picture, are easy to see. I am looking to see if there is an adjustable rear sight I can purchase that will allow me to resolve this problem.

Bought the c100. Put 250 rounds though it without a single malfunction. At 25 yards I put 20 consecutive shots into the 7 or better ring with a 2 handed stance. This is a well made pistol - functions smoothly so you can get back on target quickly. Beautifully machined. And surprisingly this pistol is all steel-no polymers. Heavy but solid. Definitely not a pocket pistol. Holster only. A fun gun to shoot. Instills confidence. One of my best investments. Rates a 10 in my book.

I bought this model after reading the gun-of-the week blog. I like it but find it to shoot about 4" low at fifteen yards which is a little more vertical deviation than I like.
