Canik TP9 series

Does anyone here have aby experience with Canik TP series handguns ? I am looking at getting one. They seem to be quite reliable and very well priced. Pretty good reviews on them too. I am pretty sure I will buy the Canik TP9 SF . It has just been released and does not have the decocker. It is very interesting ! Any information is appreciated .

I had a TP9SA. I bought it because I like to compete with inexpensive guns, but while it was fine for it's intended military/home defense use it wasn't a competition gun for many reasons, none of which involve quality or accuracy. I'm hard to fit a gun to because of small hands, and the gun just didn't fit me right. Sure I probably could have competed with it. I liked the gun but I sold it. It's basically a copy of a Walther and I've seen the Walther originals selling new for less than the Canik. I think I saw the Walthers in a CDNN email. I wish I could remember the model of Walther that it's a clone of but I just don't remember.

I remember it having a fairly decent trigger and for me that's critical. The dealer who signed it over to me was impressed by it and the price.

OK, the warts... The rear sight has 2 allen set screws that snug up the rear sight. Mine had one whose head was buggered up in assembly. It was covered under warranty with no questions. Kudus to Century! Sent to them and back to me in a week. I'm also not a fan of white inserts in sights. The sights have lots of white as seen by the shooter. If I had held onto the gun I would have changed them. The dealer thought they were great; maybe you will also.

If you have any specific questions, ask.

More than a few people talk about the Cerekote finish coming off easily but I am more about function than fashion. I hope they run as good as a Glock. I have only shot Glocks mainly and up to just a few years ago the M&P's .

I never had any function issues at all. Very reliable. My Glock experience happened with a very early Glock and it felt like a 2 x 4 to me. The Canik didn't, it was good in the hand, it just didn't fit me.

I dry fire a lot and I had no finish issues with it. I didn't know that it was ceracoated.

If you buy one let us know how you like it.
