    New Canik TP9SFx......

    Also check out the Canik forum tons of how to’s and info on different setups. I would leave it as is if the gun is new and see if the misfires work themselves out. Most guys brake in the gun then change stuff up, like you I changed a bunch right out of the box so I told myself if it didn’t run perfect during first few hundred rounds no biggie. Gotta break it in then tweak it a little if needed. I have probably 500 rounds through it now and haven’t had one misfire. love this gun, can’t beat the price to performance. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I also installed a Ghost 6.5 striker spring and their reduced power plunger spring which needed to be stretched out a little bit. They sell 3 packs cheaper than you can get one Glock striker spring. The 6.5 is between the red and blue Glock springs once broken in. I haven’t tried their 6lb yet but I have it waiting on a spare firing pin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Canik TP9SFx......

    MikieM, I’ve been using the Springer Precision Sig 320/250 guide rod for 1911 springs for awhile now with no issues. I bought it used on eBay and it came with every spring from 11 to 20 pounds. I just cut them down to 20 coils which is I think 5 inches and the same size as the commander springs. I also checked that the spring wasn’t binding up when the slide was fully racked back. I’ve been using the 14lb with Winchester white box and not one issue with any rounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think they have their own website now and don’t even use EBay anymore. Just checked and they don’t have any listings for anything on EBay anymore Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Jeff O, Why not? Won’t fit in the box rule? I’m new to this and just curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I had no issues with my 320 guide rod and 1911 springs, you do have to cut them down to commander length. I think it’s 5 inches or 23- 24 coils. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 1steelshooter, Does your guide rod sit parallel to the barrel when installed? Wasn’t sure if there updated gen4 rod with larger end would cause the guide rod to sit racked a little bit? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just throwing it out there as I’m in the same boat with figuring out which 1911 spring works best. I read on a 1911 forum that the stock commander springs are 24 coils long which equates to a 5 inch spring. The full length 1911 springs are 6 3/8 inches long. If cutting down any of the full length springs you will be lighter then the rated lbs of the spring by a little bit. Just to keep in mind. I found a lightly used Springer Precision full size 320 guide rod and every Wolff spring from 11-21 lbs most of which are still brand new in the package on eBay. So far first time ever shooting the gun with a shorten 15 lb spring, Ghost 6.5 lb striker spring and Ghost reduced power plunger spring. Not one hiccup or anything from 200 rds of WWB 115 gr and Magtech 115 gr. I don’t reload so that’s pretty much what I shoot. Anyone looking for striker springs or reduced power plunger springs check out Ghost as there prices are unbeatable. Also Taylor Freelance makes specific Canik baseplates now that are perfect fit and reasonably priced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Canik TP9 SFX guide rod

    Hey Guys, Just traded my SF for a SFX with Vortex and found a Springer Precision 320 guide rod on eBay. The deal includes every 1911 spring from 11-21 lbs. All of the lower pound springs are brand new in the wrapper as he used this on a Sig 320 and he said the 18 lb was used the most. I have the ghost 6.5 striker spring and reduced power plunger spring on the way also. Which recoil spring should I start with and should I shorten them as they are full length 1911 springs??

    Canik TP9 SFX guide rod

    Lutheranpriest, just curious if the Gen4 guide rod you chose is parallel to the barrel? It looks like that model you chose has a larger end on it to correct the angled guide rod in the gen4 Glock. There gen3 model has the end that is the same size as the spring so it would be more like the stock guide rod on the Canik. Just wondering if I should buy there gen3 with adapter vs the gen 4
  13. So I finally made up my mind to get the Vortex. Of course when I go to buy it there was only one listing on eBay for $550 brand new. Well it was a weekend only deal and it was gone. Contacted the seller and they wouldn’t match the weekend price so I bought the Steiner instead. If anybody’s looking Sportoptics.com have the LE model with throw lever for $440 shipped. Not one other place would even come close to this price. They are out of stock but do allow back orders and will have more next week. Can’t wait thanks everybody for the help. I did have a chance to look at the Vortex at a local gun shop. If the glass on the Steiners even better as some stated, I will be amazed because the Vortex to me looked awesome.
