Patrick from TFB TV presents the Canik TP9SFx. This pistol has many features similar to what might be found on much more expensive competition guns, but at a much more affordable price. He takes this Turkish pistol out for a test run on the range to see if it can be a serious contender when it comes to competition shooting.
The gun is roughly the same size as a Glock 34, and it comes with two 20-round magazines. Out of the box, it has a rear sight with a cover plate, which allows a user to put in four adapter plates for any other kind of sights. There is a tactical front sight, and it has a nice finish to it, with a gray and black color scheme. The trigger is pretty spectacular, reminiscent of a PPQ M5.
Patrick then starts firing on some steel targets multiple times. He remarks while shooting that the gun is fast. He takes a closer look at the gun.
The Canik has an extended mag release, and an extended slide release, which both make working the gun very easy. The trigger really is excellent – it’s very clean. It has some lightning cuts on the slide to help a person operate it. He thinks that if there were a heavier red dot on this, it might choke the gun a little bit. He already mentioned the mounting base on the rear of the gun, and explains how taking off the dovetail cover plate works with the other adapter plates. He says it depends on the kind of optic that will be placed on it.
Patrick demonstrates how to strip the gun, and shows what it looks like in the box. There’s a holster, a strap, the mounting plates, a gun lock, a tool kit, spare back strap and a second magazine.
He concludes by saying that he found the gun to be very shootable and accurate, which is good for its price range.
