Tanfoglio's First Rifle: EAA Appeal .22lr Bullpup

Post by jgreenberg01 » 05 Jun 2013, 13:35

Picked this up on a whim because after the PS90 and Tavor, I am really liking the ergonomics of bullpups.

Yeah, I know this one has the looks that only a mother could love, but the proof is in the shootin'. I'll let you know how it runs after I take it to the range.

That is a major muzzle break for a .22LR :skep:

I agree that's one large (TWSS) muzzle brake. It comes off by loosening one allen screw which and that makes the rifle shorter. I can't imagine that it makes a substantial difference in how the gun performs, so I have a feeling that I'll be taking it off after testing it.

Hmmm, needed to make the minimum OAL? How is the trigger? BTW, Mr. Greenberg, you have way too many toys!

Usually, the uglier the gun, the better it is.
Besides, you had me at 'Tanfoglio'.... :D

Here it is with the muzzle brake removed, next to other bullpups. It's not needed to be legal.

I'm thinking I may have enough barrel showing to thread it :D

I wouldn't own an EAA firearm EVER! Their customer service is the worst. I work for an FFL dealer and we just got two of these EAA Tanfoglio Appeals in stock less than a month ago. They are both brand new and one of them was missing the 3 pins that hold the upper and lower together. I contacted them to see if I could get them to send me the parts that were missing and was told someone would call me back that same afternoon. Two days went by with no call back so I called them again. The lady on the phone was not only not helpful but she was quite rude about the situation but she told me that someone would call me back within the next few days. Another week and a half went by and I called them a third time. I was put on hold for a while and then got disconnected so I called back again and was told that they don't have any parts in stock for this gun and that when they do get them in stock that I could purchase the parts that were missing from a brand new gun right out of the box. I told them that I wasn't going to buy the parts because they should have been included with the gun in the first place and they told me that there is no way that they sent out an incomplete gun. I am returning the gun to Davidsons where I bought it because they will take it back and they actually have good customer service. I am passing this information along because I don't want to see people buy a brand new gun and then have to buy the parts from EAA that they forgot to assemble at their factory. Luckily for me Davidsons is taking care of me. If I would have bought the gun from another wholesaler I would be stuck with an expensive piece of plastic that doesn't function.

Thanks for the input, it sounds like you had a bad experience. I know what that's like, the experience I had with my Kel-Tek PMR-30 was even worse. On the other hand I also fully realize that there are plenty of people who have had very good experiences with KT.

FWIW, my EAA Appeal works just fine and as for my EAA Witness Elite 10mm - I'm in love with it!

Pretty much standard for EAA CS. They just import the guns and do so with a bare bones staff. When you buy anything EAA it comes at a great price but it's up to you for any repairs or mods.
