Canik TP9 SFX issue

7 posts in this topic

I just picked up a new TP9 SFX and attempted to mount a Vortex Venum to it.  I mounted the number 1 plate to the gun and then started mounting the optic to the plate.  As I turned the screws I noticed it felt spongy.  I took the screws out and the helicoils from the mounting plate had come out with the screws.

 

Anyone else had this issue?  How do I fix this?

You'll need to install new helicoils.  Mcmaster Carr sells the kits which include the helicoils and install tool required.

Thanks AZRock, I checked out the link.  There are way too many options there for me to screw up.

 

I had sent a request to Century Arms and CanikUSA yesterday, I got a response from Century Arms this afternoon after sending a friendly reminder to both this afternoon.

 

I am pretty surprised at the amount of information they need just to send me a non-firearm part.  Copy of original receipt for purchase of firearm, Serial number, copy of Drivers License, and complete a waiver of liability.

 

I filled out all the information and submitted the forms back.  Now I sit back and wait to see how long the process takes.

No problem.  I am a little puzzled they helicoiled all the tapped holes.  Usually you only do that if you have to put threads in soft material (plastic or cast) or you messed up and used the wrong size tap drill.  I am leaning towards somebody messed up and they just did it across the board.  If future versions come tapped I guess we will know.  I know my slide racker post won't seat all the way down so I am side loading the threads, need to check and see if the tang for that helicoil is knocked off like it is supposed to be.  I noticed a few still present on my other plates but don't remember if I checked the plate I ended up using.

Yes, all the info they want, they already have at their fingertips. On the Canik forum, someone posted that they wanted a copy of their driver's license also?????.....I'm waiting for the Viper Venom , 6 MOA dot to be in stock. Good point, why a heli coil in a steel frame???.... None of us have had a response from either Century Arms or Canik USA as to why the SF & SFX haven't been sent to USPSA or IPDA for being approved for competition either, NOT A PEEP!!!!...

Sorry to hear that. I was very unhappy with Century back when Grand Power was under them.  Eagle isn't the world's best, but they are definitely better.
