Differences between tso and parrot
« on: April 07, 2021, 05:15:29 PM »
I’ve got a tso and just bid on a parrot. 

What are all the differences? 
Muzzle brake and red dot I can see.  What are the things I can’t see?

Compensation, multiple barrels and reliablity issues.  Parrot has both comp and barrel ports making it a lot more finicky when it comes to ammo.  They are built for different competitions, the Parrot is an Open Gun and built for ultimate speed.  TSO is built for Limited.  Both are great guns, and both are specialist pistols.  They can be great range toys as well.  Have an TS in 40 S&W I use for Bowling Pin matches and it does well.

Good luck, hope this helps.

So same springs? Same trigger pull?
It’s just a compensator ?

New parrots come with only 1 barrel now.

A friend just got one and it ran 115 grain w the comp.  so I wonder if they changed the main spring

The standard Czechmate comes with two barrels and all the extras...the Parrot does not.
Trigger pull is very similar...too close to call...virtually identical. They are both the standard by which all others are judged.

Concerning springs, I'm pretty sure the TSO and Czechmate are not sprung identically. However, I found running a Wolf 9lb recoil spring in my Czechmate (with the comp barrel) makes it function 100% with every kind of ammo I've shoved down the pipe.

Obviously the Czechmate gives you the optic, the optic mount, and the thumb rest/stop, which do not come with the TSO.

Additionally, shooting them side by side the Czechmate (comped) has noticeably less recoil and is faster on the follow up than the TSO.
