Pardini -- Helpful things to know

Post by carykiteboarder on Wed Mar 18, 2015 12:11 pm

First topic message reminder :

The Pardini SP Bullseye Edition is a magnificent pistol. There are a couple things, however it would be nice to have documented.
1) If you have XL hands, the Pardini grip options might not work for you.  You CAN however get the Rink XL grips at the time of purchase.  By doing so, I only paid for an "upgrade" rather than buying the Rink grip at full price.  Obviously, I don't have a normal grip that would allow people with regular size hands to shoot the pistol.
2) You should buy "moly grease". The moly-grease is a simple monthly maintenance task which is mentioned in the manual.
3) You should buy an extra dry-fire plug.  Dry-fire practice with many .22 guns is a pain.  (i.e. S&W M41)  It's a pleasure with the Pardini and you don't want to be without the little plug if you lose one.  They are under $10.
4) The "rail" on the frame is a European style dovetail groove.  DON'T assume your rings will work.  Pardini USA offers rings that have been milled to make them work.  They are fine for .22LR.  If you are handy and careful, you might be able to your stock Ultradot rings for .22LR. However, if you ever add the .32 ACP conversion, a number of folks have not been able to get the Pardini rings to hold.  
5) The Bullseye version is different from the SP New Mechanical.  The .32 conversions work on the SPBE and the .22 conversions work on the .32 HP models.

Froneck,
Exactly right.  However, when you get old the .32ACP is a lot less painful on the elbow joint. Yes, I admit that my .45 scores are 20-40 points lower than my CF scores but I can shoot a whole 2700 rather than having to quit after 1800.  Old age sucks but it beats the alternative.  Even old age ain't so bad if you're doing something fun.

This is a three gun game. As long as it is, I'll shoot whatever it's easiest to put holes in the middle with. 

When I shot high-power back in the day, The word was you'll never get any where shooting a mouse gun. Look what's happened! 

We all have to shoot the 45 but the 32 makes my day a lot more fun!

I too fit in to the Old Fart group, the 1911 with full ball ammo was quite a bit to handle. However I still shoot and enjoy the lighter loaded 185gr loads that work well. I'm not saying that something can't be learned from shooting the 32. It helps just like the .22 and Air. But as most shooter have seen shooting the 32 in CF will lower the 45 match score so much that what ever points are gained by shooting the 32 are not enough to offset the loss of points in the 45 match. I don't mean that the 45 score is just lower but that the score is lower than the average score prior to shooting the 32 in CF. Over the years I had the chance to get to know many of the top bullseye shooters. Most did try the 32 and got better score in CF but soon noticed the 45 scores started to decline. I'm willing to state that of the shooters that frequented the stage at Perry over the years in the past and present very few if any shot the 32 regularly in CF if at all. As you know many shooters especially those at the top of the game invest in the best gun that will allow them to shoot their best score, as you get near the top the difference in points is lower and a few points matter. If the 32 would give those shooter an edge they would be shooting it!
 Simply put that if you enjoy shooting the 32 and like to have fun shooting it at matches by all means keep doing it! However if it is a goal to rise in classification and win the classification currently assigned then shooting the 32 will hamper you quest to achieve your goal.

At Camp Perry this year, I had a chance to talk to a Cabot Team member.  He is sponsored by both Pardini and Cabot.  He uses the Pardini SPBE for .22.  He said Pardini wants him to shoot their .32 for CF but refuses to and shoots his ($12,000) .45 for CF.
