Re: TP9SFL at the range

I have what may be considered a "1st Gen" SFL and have never had any failures to go into battery, failures to eject, or failures to feed with any ammunition I have used (115g or 124g in about 3-400rds). I may have had 1 or 2 failures (don't want to be that guy who says "my pistol never fails"), but ...

Re: You found $500.00

Either an Elite Combat or SF Elite in Black.

I'd snag some flaming hot cheetos. You can bundle a group of five together and attach them to a stick for a torch when SHTF @nctrailboss =))

TP9 Series IWB/AIWB Holster

Howdy SMC,

Does the TP9 series IWB/AIWB holster have an open or closed nose end? I wanted one for the v2 and was wondering if it would accommodate a threaded barrel.

Thanks!

Re: Favorite Lubricants for Your Canik?

Thanks for all your suggestions! I'll have to go shop around. Maybe buy a couple different kinds. Seems like most everyone has a similar preference. The Frog Lube is attractive to me because I have small children and the wife get in my ass about having strong chemicals out in the house. It's pretty ...

Favorite Lubricants for Your Canik?

Howdy ya'll, I need to purchase some lubricant and wanted to get ya'lls opinions on what lubricants have been good or bad for your Caniks. I am not well versed in this topic and any insight is much appreciated! Also, what are the specific areas that I should lubricate? I have yet to (properly) clean...

Re: Canik TP9 LC at SHOT Show

Whats the story on that compact you posted @Janik ??? Not available in the U.S. unfortunately. Doesn't meet the requirement for importing. Only way to get one here is for Canik/Century Arms to build a facility and manufacture them here. Damn, that's lame. What about it makes it fail the requirement...

Re: For the TP40v2 owners out there, spare magazines may be possible

Folks, update on the TP40v2 magazine situation. Attached are photos of both magazines. On each, they have the same writing denoting they were made for the TP series pistols. The only differences I noticed were the witness holes on the back and the very minor difference in the feed lips. The 9mm mag ...

Re: Who carries a Canik

I carry my SFL everyday in a black arch holster. I want an elite for EDC and would probably carry it AIWB. I am not the largest person by any stretch of the imagination. 6' 145lbs 32/32 pants and it conceals perfectly fine. I usually wear it at around 3-4 o'clock. I havent ever tried AIWB with it be...

No problem. Glad it makes sense. I need to get on the ball now and order one of the threaded barrels for the V2 before they disappear from Preppers website.
Just snagged one myself! They are on sale right now, $20 off!

Re: For the TP40v2 owners out there, spare magazines may be possible

I have a Tristar T100 9mm,I wish I would have gotten the C100 instead. Thanks for the price! C100 has always been on my short list, just seems like something else comes up before I buy it. One of these days though, I'll finally get one. I saw a C-100 chambered in 380 ACP online. I kind of want it f...

Re: TP9DA and V2 Barrel Interchanging

Janik, I was looking at the shapes of the barrels you put up here and am wondering if your v2 barrel was maybe a later manufacture or different barrel all together? It seems that the v1, v2, and SA barrels are all the same as the DA barrel, assuming that the DA barrel is the one on the left. If you ...

Re: For the TP40v2 owners out there, spare magazines may be possible

How much did the 40 cost if you do not mind me asking? Not at all! I snagged it for $359. That one in GA was going for $340. They made 40 versions of the now Tristar T, P, and C-100 and 120 series pistols as well. I haven't seen one for sale, but they run around the same, 360ish. I want a 9mm T100,...
