The story of canuck pistols is the age-old story of the underdog when the tp9 was first introduced to the market the price tag coupled with the then unknown brand name meant that for many people the words quality and canik couldn't co-exist years after first being introduced to the u.s market canik is now one of the.
Top manufacturers of quality pistols in today's video we break down their pistol lineup to help you pick the right canik for you canik tp9 elite combat the tp9 ec looks like a pistol built for business not only does it come with all the amenities you would expect in a modern carry pistol it also runs really.

Flats for the included wrench first impressions are quite favorable the pistol fits the hand well with sufficient texture for retention without being abrasive and the controls are all accessible while retaining a low profile the dovetailed fiber optic front and non-glare square notch rear sights provide a good sight picture.
The real star of the tp9 elite combat is the trigger which provides one of the best experiences on a fighting pistol it is smooth and crisp with a remarkably short reset to my surprise the tp9 ec's case contains a flush fitting 15 round metal magazine along with four micro red dot mounting plates compatible with just.
About every mrds on the market for a high performance combat pistol that you could snag for about 650 dollars i'm confident you couldn't do any better than a canik tp9 ec canik mate sfx the mate sfx brings a whole lot of features and accessories along so much so that i don't know how you can get.
Anything remotely close from another manufacturer it comes optics ready poised for co-witnessing with excellent three dot sights with redesigned beaver tails aggressive grip texturing awesome internally flared magwells and double undercut trigger guard forward caulking serrations have been.
Added to the slide which together with some internal lightning cuts have shaved a half ounce from its overall weight the fully cocked striker has been retained resulting in one of the sweetest trigger pulls of any polymer framed handgun currently on the market it also comes with an 18 round magazine and an extended 20 round magazine along.
With a host of other accessories in a hard case that matches the frame's color the matte sfx is one smooth operator chugging through nine millis with the effort of a top-level college freshman football player in an elementary school flag football tournament it's too easy and makes everyone else look bad except the shooter.
Given the pistol's features performance and value i would not be surprised at all if the mate sfx becomes just as popular as the tp9 you'd be hard-pressed to find a more complete package at a lower price or even for significantly more money canik sfx rival for the money canik has a reputation for.
Being very competitive and the addition of the sfx rival to the lineup is just furthering that point coming from the factory with basically all the features most glock guys pay extra for this new nine millimeter is going to be tough to pass on including all the trendy lightning cuts serrations and an optic cut the slide.
For the rival is impressive it also utilizes a nice red fiber optic front sight with an anti-glare adjustable rear sight in addition to the flared blower there is a magwell extension to help you achieve lightning fast reloads it may be removed to avoid printing while carrying concealed.
Coming standard with two 18-round magazines reloads won't be needed too often the flat face trigger is awesome the take-up is smooth the brake is clean and the reset is short consumers can choose between the gold accented grass fx rival or the all black configuration called the sfx rival dark side.
The dark side comes with one extra optic plate but other than that the only difference between the two models is the external accents canik tp9 elite sc beyond its exotic origins the koenig tp9 elite sc is a very nice piece of work that's affordable sturdy and nice looking without being over the top in.
Any area it comes with two interchangeable back straps a kit for installing a miniature reflex sight a holster a 12 round magazine and a 15 round magazine even better this slide is milled in such a way that adding a reflex sight does not interfere with the rear iron sight the canik also offers tactical features.
Such as front and rear serrations and a picatinny rail the slide also wears a tungsten cerakote finish to resist corrosion and wear and canik pairs the white dot front sight with a serrated all black rear sight the gun also stands out from the pack with an oversized ambidextrous slide release as well as a reversible magazine.
Catch the grip texturing is effective though i found it a little too subtle the rest of the ergonomics are excellent with thumb shelves and relief cuts that promote a high grip but the tp9's real claim to fame is the exquisite trigger which had just a bit of stacking on the take-up and then a.
Crisp break at around 3.5 pounds pressure all in all this is an amazing handgun for concealed carry canik tp9 sfx canik has been around for a while now and has a huge line of pistols to show off so it's high time we put one through the paces and find out just how these.
Turkish gats do on the range claiming that the tp9 sfx is competition ready out of the box canik actually delivers on the claim this is a full-size gun and it shoots like one 5.2 inch barrel 20 plus one magazine and a rather sexy tungsten gray cerakote finish.
Despite this breathtaking magazine capacity the frame geometry remains light and svelte there are two interchangeable back straps that ultimately determine the position of your finger on the trigger the gun shoots flat and accurately follow-up shots are quick due to a trigger with an awesome reset very short.
And crisp while the pole overall is a touch long the reset is fantastic we can't find a pistol that delivers as much value as the tp9 sfx the reliability quality and boatload of extras that come in the box all for a shockingly low price really puts the tp9 sfx in a class of its own.
