Founded in 1976 by Italian competition shooter Giampiero Pardini, Pardini Armi is a manufacturer of competition shooting air guns and firearms. One of the most popular products of Pardini Armi is the SP rimfire target pistol. Based on this successful design, the company has developed a new semi-automatic rimfire carbine called TR20. Particularly, the Pardini TR20 shares the blowback action and the adjustable trigger with the SP pistol. Reportedly, additive manufacturing technologies are extensively used in the production of this carbine.

  • I find it hilarious that this is perfectly legal and acceptable in Europe but a felony in the US if possessed as-is. (Would be an SBR with it's sub-16" barrel and require NFA registration to be legal).

    For all the naysayin' on Pardini, they must do some things right. Every finals competitor in the most recent Olympic Rapid Fire Pistol world cup event was shooting a Pardini. From France to the ChiComs. Pardinis all. Narry a hiccup from any of them.
