IPSC and Defense Pistols

Among all the high caliber pistols used in competitive shooting, the Pardini GT is in a place of its own for its particular birth; because in all the other cases we are faced with firearms initially conceived for self-defense or for service use that were consequently adapted for target shooting, dynamic shooting or for informal use in the shooting ranges.
Conversely, Pardini’s pistol, initially developed as a series of PC models (1993) which over time developed until becoming the current family of GT models in the year 2000, was expressively conceived for practical shooting. This origin has had a profound influence on its design and development: it is obvious, for example, that concealment is not a very important feature and has been disregarded.
The evolution of competition sport in Pardini’s planning has allowed, for the first time in this field, the development of a specific technology, able to magnify and sophisticate the characteristics of these firearms, making them highly specialized tools.
All the pistols in this series can be used “ out of the box” without any need for further customizing or any particular improvements. Its set-up, its compact structure, its prominent mechanism, its adjustable let-off and its easy use make this a product able to guarantee exceptional performances.
The family of Pardini pistols used in dynamic shooting includes the following models: “GT9”, “GT 9-1”, and “PC9S” ( cal.9) “ GT40”, and PC 40S ( cal 40 S&W), “GT45” GT45-II and GT45S (cal.45 ACP). With the introduction of the “GT45” model we also have the arrival of conversions in cal 9 and cal 40 with 5 and 6 inch barrels, together with matching slides and bolts.
