    My only experience with Canik is with the TP9SF Elite pistols. One had issues with the magazines hanging up on the mag release. Possibly a one off issue. They are right under the price point of a Blue Label/GSSF Glock. The cheaper models are priced to compete with Taurus. I would still prefer a trade-in Glock over one if that was my price range.

    Haven't heard much good or bad.

    That's a valid concern. IIRC, these are imported by Century.

    I had that very same thought. I ordered heavy on what I saw for small parts off the Canik website a couple months ago. Prices were very reasonable, way better than Beretta, which is what I shoot and have done the most upkeep on.

    Also Canik USA has outstanding support for the pistols and their owners. Caniks are manufactured in Turkey and are imported here.
    Thanks John. Gonna check them out. Looking at the aftermarket stuff and I may just do a trigger swap on one to see, but I’ve been quite happy with the factory lever.

    Liked my Glock triggers better so at first I bought a 42 then bought a 43 and use that one mostly since it really isn't that much larger than the 42.
    I also have a p365 that is in the same ballpark but I find I am much more familiar with the Glocks so it doesn't get much carry time.
    Yeah, I always thought it was a shame that Ruger couldn’t have done a better job on the LC triggers. I briefly owned a LC9 with that quarter mile take up. Same goes for the Springfield XD compact I have. It’s prolly next on my chopping block.
    Every glock I’ve ever owned got a trigger upgrade pretty early in the game except for my most recent purchase. JB just did a 23 for me and I’ll likely bring him my 20 soon.

    I actually like the Canik triggers as they are. The reset is pretty short for factory and I find the pull weight to be right in the sweet spot. I’d prefer a 4 pound trigger with less travel on take up and reset than a 2 pounder that keeps me guessing. The Canik is very predictable to me.
    The FDE pistol pictured (looks OD green don’t it?) is one I bought from a member here. Not sure which trigger is in it but I like it.

    Canik handguns anybody?



    Reading a piece about all the CZ clones out there. Dig the pronunciation of the name Canik.

    Anyone know where to get accessories for them? Other than magazines I can’t find a whole lot in stock online. The canik US website is pretty much sold out of everything

    I just got a few parts in this week from their website. Extended mag release and slide release. Only thing I saw them out of was mags.

    I own a Canik TP9SA and it cycles flawlessly. I don't know any other way to say it, so I'll just say it, "It's a pretty gun". I like the lines and edges on it. The weight and balance I find excellent. I haven't fired it a lot, only because I have several other guns I typically shoot. It's a great gun, and I agree; it'll go up in price as they become more popular and more people begin looking into them. The Turks make a good gun. It's only fairly recently, 7 or 8 years I guess they've had importers. They make a good shotgun as well, at a more than fair price.
    The greater majority of my vast fortune I've spent on women whiskey & weapons......The rest, I just pissed away.

    If you find yourself in a fair gun fight; your tactics suck !

    Big fan of the TP9SF... it eats just about everything and they're cheap and effective. Couldn't ask for much more than that.

    Went to bayou dragon on Saturday and put 150 rounds through my new canik tp9 sf elite. So far Iím a believer. I had a hard time buying into all of the hype but after shooting it I was highly impressed. The Warren tactical sights were dead on out of the box no adjustments required whatsoever. Not a single hiccup. I shot 124gr fmj and 147gr American Eagle flat nose. I plan on going back this weekend to about another 150 rounds through it of strictly 115gr ammo. Iíve seen a couple reports of people having hiccups with 115gr. I also hear canik recommends 124gr ammo or higher but I canít find that information only word of mouth.
