Re: Elite Combat

I had an issue with light striker-fires with my Elite Combat the first 500 rounds. After it broke in, I cleaned the “whatever lube” from the factory out (using Ballistol), including taking out the firing pin assembly and Ballistol’ing that, wiped it dry, it has not had an issue for the last 1,000 ro...

Re: New member from south FL

Welcome...and we’re sorry ahead of time. You’re going to be spending a lot more money on ammo that you ever dreamed about before, because it is such an awesome gun...that’s all you’ll want to do.

Re: My sf elite brought home the gold today

I agree with Janik totally! Elites are just plain awesome! I tried the SFx thinking it would be a match pistol for me. I wasn’t nearly as accurate with it as I was with the Elite, or as comfortable. I found out through a couple of field tests comparing to my Elite that the grip size is larger on the...

Re: Removed my RMR

I’m pretty happy with my XS Big Dot sights I put on my Elite. VERY quick acquisition. Great for self defense, and for accurate shooting up to 10 yds. Further out and the Big Dot gets a little big (depending on target size). I’m debating to go with the smaller (standard) dot for my new Elite Combat I...

Re: Favorite Lubricants for Your Canik?

I use rubbing alcohol and Ballistol after watching this hickok45 video and a few others. Seems to work quite good for me and I like that it’s not greasy and wipes clean. Maybe there is better...have not done comparisons. What sold me was hickok saying that the more you use Ballistol, the more of a p...

Re: Holsters

I got this for my Elite and it fits great. I am not a carry guy, so can’t speak for carry comfort of it. Bought it for if/when I need it. But, feels comfortable when walking around the house.

Bought my first Canik at Christmas last month and I can say the addiction is real folks! (Probably don’t need to tell you guys). I’ve owned Glock forever...G19. Never found any...
