I bought a V2 about a yr ago, and after having put about (only) 900 rds through it so far, I've found it to be, at least to this point, a flawlessly operating weapon. Zero problems whatsoever, using either the white box Winchesters or the Remington 115 gr. Even though these old eyes are getting a tad fuzzy, and my moderately arthritic hands are getting somewhat shaky, I'm still able create a slightly "enhanced group" on a target. If a water buffalo, or anything else the same size or larger breaks into the house, it's going to be in serious trouble! Just kidding!
V2 was in my sights first.... but I never could find one.... wound up with the DA....which turned out great. I think they are the same gun...just slightly different trigger.
Yah, pretty much. Just minor changes on the DA like the trigger dingus, the non-ambi decocker which doesn't really matter, and they removed the anti-glare ridges on the top of the slide. The DA has a smooth top like the SF, Elite, etc. I wish they would have left the anti-glare ridges. But other than that, They pretty much are one in the same.
Perfect timing... saw a Black Friday ad for a pawn shop that had a TP9 V2 for $349. Just happened to be near it today and went in to see... and there were 2 of them. Didn't ask any questions or to handle them, so not sure if they have both mags, with/without box and what came with them, but... isn't $349 about what they went for new? No way of telling how they were treated or handled, but I love my Elite so much a V2 to go with it may not be a bad idea, even though I know they've discontinued them here.
A good quick way to tell a newer version from the older version on the V2 is, the front sight is pinned on the older production V2, the newer production will be dove tailed in. On the price $349-$399 is what they sold for new, still can find on some web sites in stock. The DA is going for the same prices and it's in stock online easier to find.
