Just Bought a TP9 SFx

Post by jnichols2 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 2:55 pm

Monday I saw a TP9 SFX at Academy. It was a special for $729.99, with a Vortex Viper included in the box.
They also had a TP9 Elite Combat, which I never heard of, for the same price.
To sweeten the deal, they had a 10% off sale for military.

I reluctantly chose the Elite combat, but kept rethinking all week.
When I came to this forum to learn about the Elite Combat, Janik had a thread "Canik Elite Combat and TP9SFx" with a great picture.
Then, while I was trying to find Elite Combat magazines, he pointed out the SFx mags would fit my gun.
He told me how nice it was to have both.

Today I wondered back to Academy and bought (wait for drum roll...) a TP9 SFx.
I figured a final price of $ 657 with a free red dot was too good to pass up.

I'm getting them ready for tomorrow. Hope the arthritis in my shooting shoulder doesn't act up.

Janik; if my wife finds them, can I blame you?

Congrats on two fine weapons.

I just bought the sfx and am doing upgrades to it. Waiting on Sprinco for a guide rod and spring, backordered. Already have the Glock red spring for the striker.

Yesterday I installed the Freedomsmith Fat Boy trigger. I must admit this is the way to go. Fantastic!

Waiting on front sights to somewhat co-witness a Venom dot, 6 moa.

Frank the Tank has some great videos on YouTube.

Congrats on both the Elite Combat and SFx. Go ahead and blame me, you wouldn't be the first. :) My wife has given up on arguing with me about my Canik addiction, since I don't drink, smoke or even go out and party. She figures I'd be spending the money one way or another. Lol

Keep us posted how they perform for you at the range. And make sure you run some good quality ammo through them first. I generally break in a new Canik with Winchester NATO. Usually after a couple boxes of that, they will eat anything. The RSA's tend to be pretty stiff in Caniks.

I saw the sfx with the venom 6 moa for $599.00, free ship.

Unfortunately I was to late.

I also do the 124 gr NATO, now I have to get more. Two mouths to feed...

First glitch, when I installed the Vortex Viper, it wouldn't turn on. It checked OK before I installed it.
The Viper battery sits underneath it. Sometimes it slips when installing.
Removed and installed, works now.

I'm 71, and have arthritus. Wow, is the Cocking Lever that screws into the red dot mounting plate nice for easy racking.
I think all semi autos should have one for optional use.

Here's your strategy...tell her "Honey, it was either buy myself the Canik SFx, or buy my girlfriend a present...and aren't you happy that I chose the former, rather than the latter?"

Let us know how that goes for you.
