Anyone know what a Tristar Z919 is?

Post by McCanik » Wed Nov 07, 2018 11:03 pm

I was looking at Tristars on the Centerfire Guns website and noticed that they have new models(?) listed without photos. They have Z919 compact (4" barrel)- $383 and performance (4.5" barrel) -$407.
I have Googled, searched Gunwatcher and even looked at Tristar Sporting Arms and Canik's Turkish website. Nothing about this gun shows up anywhere.
Since Centerfire Guns has this listed (even if it is out of stock) with a price I have to believe this is a model they have contracted to retail.
Has anyone heard of this new model?

Haven't heard or seen anything about it. Only current metal Canik I know of we don't get is the .380 c100 so whatever it is it must be all new.

Well?..... I did a quick search and got lots of hits- but no pics. I sent an email to tristar and asked for info. We'll see?
Since it says "compact" but still has a 4" bbl.... don't know....maybe it will be a single stack???

Edit: But I believe the 100 series "IS" considered a compact anyway?

Yes 100 has always been compact model for c, p and t series, with 120's being full sized. I believe Centerfire ad says 15rd so not going to be single stack.

Any chance it's going to be the X12 renamed? I'm still waiting for that one to hit the market.

It seems odd that development has progressed far enough to have retail contracts and pricing set without any announcement of a new model on the manufacturer's or importer's websites. Maybe they are waiting for Shot Show for the big reveal and press announcements. If so, Centerfire may have let the cat out of the bag.

That could be a possibility, was originally suppose to be out like a year ago.

The Canik product line is evolving. I just checked their homepage to see if the Z model had been added (it hasn't) and found that they have dropped the T models. That's a shame because I really like the T-120.
They still have the L-120 as a alloy frame. I assume Tristar will begin importing the L model again since the T is no longer available.

Yeah like my T100 glad I got one while still available. Can always still get the Jericho/Baby Eagle which is rather similar.
