  1. The tungsten guide rod is the second best upgrade in my Canik's. First is the Freedom Smith triggers.
  2. I have 2 Canik TP9SFx pistols. And they both are set up the same. The ultimate Canik TP9SFx combination for me is. Freedom Smith Triggers W74 Tungsten guide Rods 14 pound Commander recoil springs 29 Newton striker spring Taylor Freelance brass backstraps. My load is 147 grain Blue Bullet on top of 3.2 grains Sport Pistol.
  3. Sprinco makes a guide rod assembly. I tried it and it was hands down better then factory set up. But I prefer the W74.
  4. I use a 14 pound Wolff recoil spring. I tried 12,13 and 15 pound springs. 14 felt the best to me with my load. I know some guys use and like the lighter springs without issues. As far as the recoil spring for your load. That’s something you will need to workout. If I was starting out with your load today. I would do the same I did before and get 12,13,14 and 15 pound springs and see which one I like and is 100% reliable.
  5. I use tungsten guide rods from W74. They are made for the Canik and work great. If I remember correctly they add 2 ounces over the factory guide rod. I have them in both of my Canik TP9sSFx. https://www.w74guiderods.com/
  6. Fits great. No adapter needed. I think the tungsten guide rod makes a nice improvement to the Canik. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I had Arsenal Molds make a 5 cavity 9mm mold for a 147 grain profile similar to Blue Bullets and ACME and a 40 cal mold for 180 Bullets. Both molds are no lube groove and have performed great. I think they are worth checking out. The link below is for the 9 mm bullet. http://arsenalmolds.com/products?product_id=125 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Here’s my Chrono info for 147 Blue Bullets and Sport Pistol.

  11. A friend of mine had a knee replacement when he was 70. He has no issues with the replaced knee and can do more now then before the knee replacement. He told me the key to full recovery was in the physical therapy. Do the exercises the therapist tell you to do and how often and you’ll be running around before you know it.

  12. I have this seating die for my 9 and 40 and use it with great success. However these dies are seating dies only and does not fully remove the bell on the cartridge case. I crimp separate and don’t have any issues related to seating the bullet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have the racer in both of my SFX. I like really like them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I did the same upgrades to my Canik TP9SFx. I settled on the 14 pound recoil spring. It was really just personal preference. The brass base pads and back strap seemed to balance the gun. It is really easy to shoot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I tried a 15 pound recoil recoil spring with a 6.5 pound striker spring. Worked just fine. I see no reason using a 6 pound striker spring wouldn’t work. I settled on 14 pound recoil springs. BTW I put this guide rod in both my Canik TP9SFx. https://www.w74guiderods.com/
