I finally shot a Canik, and now I want one...

Recommended Posts

I was at the range shooting my CZ, and someone offered to let me shoot their Canik.  I was blown away by the trigger and the accuracy, and now I'd like to pick up one.

 

Looking at the available models, the version I shot was the TP9SF Elite Salient.  The model I'd get for myself is the TP9SFX. 

 

But now I'm wondering if the version I shot had some special Salient match barrel and trigger, and I'm going to be disappointed with the SFX trigger and accuracy.

I have and shoot the CanikTP9SFx in carry optics. It comes with a match grade barrel and a good trigger from the factory. Mine will shoot 2” groups at 25 yards with ammo it likes. I did up grade my trigger with a freedomsmith trigger. I have no regrets with this handgun.

No. 
 

The TP9SFX is very accurate out of the box and the trigger is great too!

well i disagree about the trigger, has the longest take up i think of any handgun i've shot, the break is nice though.  i replaced mine with a freedomsmith which took away most of the take up.

 

and super yes on accurate.  shooting one with a vortex razor dot, at roughly 10-15 yds, was real easy to put them all in something like a 1" group, slow fire of course.

 

and from my experience, the same glock 100% reliability.

It does have some take up. I did but a freedsmoth trigger in mine too. I’m also shooting a Walther with the stock trigger and the take up just doesn’t bother me. Never even notice it when shooting a stage.

Why does the takeup matter to you? I can't see any reason to care about it since the reset is very short, and the takeup is so light that it has no practical effect on what is otherwise a pretty crisp single action trigger in mine. (To be fair, I dropped a 6.5 lb Glock striker spring in mine, but no other trigger mods.)

I have a TP9FSx and it is a very accurate pistol. Changed the trigger to a Freedomsmith which was very helpful- also changed the striker and plunger springs. Trigger pull is now about 2.5#'s and very crisp- short overtravel and reset.

 

Put a DDP on it for CO- comes with a plate to do this. Bought a different holster that does not lock. Great pistol for CO. Reload for it- about 950fps 124 grain bullets. Great pistol for the money.

 

Thinking about changing the recoil spring and putting in a tungsten guide rod with adaptor. This should reduce muzzle flip quite a bit.

Seems to be the new "go to" pistol up here in the Frozen NW.......I have seen it make serious inroads in the Production shooters world. I like the feel of them far better then a Glock, and for the price it seems to be something to be considered seriously. The trigger is no match grade version, but it has been reported the Freedomsmith makes a world of difference. Flr the cost it would be my choice if I ever shot Production seriously.  Right now I am in CO with a CZ, but it is getting rather crowded. 

 

Just might be time to venture into a new Division...............

Little bit slow for CO isn’t it?

Caught my eye as well. 117 PF.

ok- you are correct- I looked at the wrong page in my reloading book. Was looking at 147 grain bullet. 124 grain bullets going at 1090 fps gives a power factor of about 135. This load performs/cycles very well in my Canik. Wish I had bought one a long time ago.

 

If I can find one at the right price I want to try a Trijicon SRO on this pistol. The grip angle approximates that of an STI that I shoot quite a bit- 38 super open, 40S&W limited and 9mm in 3 gun.

 

Currently I have  a DPP with a 7.5 MOA triangle on it and this performs well.
