Re: TP9SF Elite Threaded Barrel

The barrel Janik listed is the one I got. It's not match grade.
However; I'm pretty sure the difference between standard and match grade is above my skills anyway.

As I stated above, it definitely fits, and passes function test. I may be able to fire it today.

Re: TP9SF Elite Threaded Barrel

Well, my TP9SF Elite barrel with 1/2" x 28 threads arrived yesterday. I checked it out this morning. It seems to be the same as my Elite Combat, except it doesn't have flat sides. I cleaned, lubed, and installed it. It function checks OK, and cycles snap caps. It should work fine for my supressor. I...

Re: TP9SF Elite Threaded Barrel

I was notified it shipped a few minutes ago. No hurry, my suppressor paperwork was among a very large batch that got hung up over e-signature. The process seems to be moving now, but it will still be several months. When I get the Canik barrel, I can check it out during a "Jail Visit". Besides, I'm ...

They sent me an email saying it's back in stock, and on sale for $139,99, I ordered it.

Re: To us ole farts

About 90% of us are attracted to green better and faster. But you might want to check if you are in the 10%. The best way to find out is trying both a green and red sight. That probably won't be easy. Try making both color dots on 3x5 cards. Quickly bring each up at arms length. Which one grabs your...

Re: Where do you put the red dot in the window?

You only adjust it to zero where the bullet hits. Once zeroed, it doesn't matter where the dot is in the window, the bullet still goes where the dot is. From then on, no more adjustments. You can change where the dot is in the window by slightly tilting the gun. Most folks tilt the weapon so the dot...

Re: SFx @ Gabagun for $399.99

A year ago I paid $657 with a red dot mounted. I thought that was a great deal.

Actually, it was. But prices are getting a lot better now.

Re: TP9SF Elite Threaded Barrel

It's the Elite barrel I'm thinking of getting. My gun is an Elite Combat. It seems to be the same as Elite, just some upgrades.

Thanks to all who helped. Darn! It's on backorder now.
Oh well, It will be another month before I get the suppressor out of jail anyway. :)

TP9SF Elite Threaded Barrel

I actually have a TP9 Elite Combat. It has a metric threaded barrel (13,5mm X 1mm LH). I would like to use it on my 1/2" x 28 suppressor, without an adaptor if possible. Prepper Gun Shop has a 1/2" x 28 barrel for the TP9SF Elite. It says NOT THE TP9SF, TP9V2 OR THE TP9SA, but doesn't mention the TP...

And that is what matters, what feels good in you hands.
That's what I thought for a long time.
Then I discovered the one that centered the pad of my finger on the trigger, or came the closest, made me shoot better.
So, for me, that's what matters. :-D

Re: The Offical Red Dot Thread

I still have to order mine. I have a Holoson on my CZ Scorpion EVO. The Circle/Dot setup doesn't do much for slow fire target shooting. But for combat/defense, it lets you acquire the dot and get it on target VERY fast. The 32 MOA circle is better suited to pistol use/range than the 65 MOA on the ol...

Re: The Offical Red Dot Thread

Has anybody mounted a Holosun 507C sight on a Canik? If so, which plate worked?

I'm getting ready to order one for my Combat Elite.
I'm certain one of them will work. If nothing else, I'll just see which one matches the 507C screw pattern.
No problem with screws, I have many different sizes.

Re: Romeo Tango Discusses the SFx and Q5 Match

I had a Q5 long before I heard about Canik. After researching the SFx, I bought one.

I have to agree that neither gun does anything the other can't. However; the Canik has the edge on price.
I'll keep both, thank you.

But I'm 71 with arthritis in both thumbs, so it probably wasn't all that tight. :)

Re: Canik Warranty issues?

You can't always compare one gun to another. Some fit really tight, others not so much. The gun that fits tight will begin to "wear in" almost immediately. Yes, it is normal. The parts on your gun are beginning to mate to each other. If you tear down a car engine with only 25 miles on it, you will s...

Re: Removing barrel from slide

To those with "tight" barrels". If they are not a problem, don't send them out to get fixed. They will wear in, and probably have a tighter than normal lockup -- more accurate. They may have more wear marks on the barrel, but shoot better. No, I've never had a Glock with a tight barrel. Glocks are l...
