About the Handgun:
Armscor recently signed a manufacturing agreement with Tanfoglio Arms of Italy to exclusively manufacture and sell various pistol models using the Armscor brand to its worldwide sales network. A result of this agreement are the Tanfoglio series MAP1 and MAPP1 pistols manufactured by Amscor in the Philippines and marketed in the US through Rock Island Armory. MAP1 and MAPP1 pistols use the Browning short recoil action and have an Iintegrated front sight, snag-free combat rear sight, double-action (SA/DA) trigger, an automatic safety on the firing pin & manual frame mounted lever and a Parkerized finish for steel parts. There is an accessory rail on the polymer frame models for tactical lights, lasers, etc.
About the Manufacturer:
Established as a trading company in 1905 and known as Squires Bingham Co. at the time, the company found a market in importing and retailing motorcycles and sporting goods - including firearms and ammunition. In 1952 the President of the Philippines granted the company permission to manufacture its own line firearms and ammunition locally, as it was in line with his government's thrust towards industrialization. Known as Armscor today, the company touts that it is the largest arms and ammunition manufacturer in SouthEast Asia.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
