We really enjoyed and were impressed by the Gen 3 PX-9 from Tisas USA when we reviewed the "Duty" model here. When we learned of a longer-slide, longer-barreled version we couldn't help but jump on it, especially at the low prices these are available for. (More on that later)
The Tisas Px-9 Tactical TH comes ready for just about any need.

A tabletop look at fit, finish, features, and what the trigger is like can be seen in our Tabletop Video:
Specifications aren't listed on the Tisas USA website, and Tisas in Turkey doesn't list this model at all. Fortunately they're in the owner's manual so we've converted them from metric for you:
Magazine Capacity: 18 or 20
Barrel Length: 5.1"
Loving our Duty model, we had high hopes for the Tactical TH model as the longer slide makes for a longer sight radius and easier aiming, and a longer barrel for increased muzzle velocity and energy on target. We of course subjected the gun to the basic battery of GBGuns experiences including:
Our absolute first shots through the gun (and any commentary) caught on camera.
Full Magazine +1 to test both gun and magazine function
Our trademarked What's For Dinner™ load compatibility experiment.
Sights & Trigger Control experiment using a small, moving target
Practical Accuracy on a 1" target from 7 yards
The concluding thoughts and impressions from two shooters.
This can all be seen in out Shooting Impressions video below.

Of three firearms we filmed that day, the Tisas PX-9 Gen 3 Tactical TH was by far the least expensive, but was also the only one to make it through without a single malfunction. It's our belief that these guns are the next import to take off. While they're available as such low prices we recommend picking one up. Over the years we've seen other imports start off at low prices to gain market share, then go up substantially in price once they're established. It wouldn't surprise us if today's $350-$450 Tisas PX-9s won't be $500-$600 in a couple of years (regardless of inflation).
We had one minor imperfection in our sample, One of the side pannels had a bit of molding flashing left over form construction as seen in the photo below. This is nothing more than an inconvenience and is easily shaved flush with a sharp blade or ground down with sandpaper.
