USA – -(  When the Canik TP9 series of pistols first came to market they weren’t taken very seriously. The brand was unfamiliar to the American consumer and were priced very aggressively.

Original models shared a lot in common with the Walther P99 including the ability to decock and function in both single-action and double-action modes; another feature that was poorly accepted.

Canik kept at it and the growing fan base of the pistols grew too loud to ignore.

Today we have the Canik TP9SF Elite Handgun which boasts more features and arguably a better shooting experience than competitors asking twice the price.

In the hand it feels like a gun that is ready to go. The trigger is smooth and light with a faint break somewhat similar to an AK. Accuracy was excellent and the factory-installed back strap fits larger hands comfortably.

    Like the looks of this gun. Like that “space marine” look about it. Where is it made? Any “character” reference?
