Re: REVIEW: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

Personally I dislike the trigger finger unlock since it does create a possibility of an unintentional discharge in an adrenaline fueled situation but I intend to modify mine so that it doen not unlock with the trigger finger. The Elite Combat does not have the trigger finger unlock. The TP9 Elite-S...

Re: Trying to find the right open carry holster for my new canik tp9sf elite has been a pain.

Its semi-open......a longer barrel/slide would not work. But at $40?....you could order one for the Combat if there is a difference in the guns. https://i.ibb.co/Mf71D21/IMG-20200306-122326.jpg Based on that picture, the Elite Combat would certainly work, the threaded barrel has plenty of room to s...

MDJ hybred leather back with a kydex cover.....I have 4 of them. The Best $40 holster you'll ever find.

Re: My New TP9 Elite Combat FDE

Update: 21 more rounds fired - 7 Geco 124gr (about 10 years old ammo) - One of my favorite 9mm loads - very accurate. - 7 Aguilla 124gr - Good stuff - 7 German MEN 124gr - good stuff too! I also shot the "Blackwater Pistol Quals" test cold with a couple of other guys from work. One an ex-military 20...

Magazine 1: Canik TP9 Elite 15 round mag with MecGar +2 expansion - loaded with Remington 115gr UMC (probably about 10 years old ammo). Magazine 2: Walther PPQ 15 round mag with F...

Re: CFE 9mm loads

My best loads for my 5" 9mms (PPQ 5", G34, M&P 9L) were 5.0 gr CFE. I used 124gr XTREEMS, 124gr Montana Gold CMJ, 124gr TMJ Speer. Good accuracy. Avg Velocity was ~1100 for PPQ, 1075 for G34 and 1080 for M&P 9L. I would expect same for TP9SFX or TP9SFL.

Oh and OAL was 1.15.

Re: TP9SF Elite Combat (FDE) Model - +3 Magazines? Not available

I guess I should have made my original post clearer: where are the CANIK FACTORY SHIPPED 18 round (15+3) magazines for the Elite Combat? I shouldn't have to buy aftermarket ones. They (Canik/Century Arms) should offer the same ones shipped with the gun. Shouldn't they? Am I off base? This doesn't an...

TP9SF Elite Combat (FDE) Model - +3 Magazines? Not available

Searched a lot of threads, not a lot of discussion. Why is Century/Canik not offering the 15+3 Mags for sale? Can't find anyone that offers them. One of the things keeping me from "pulling the trigger" on getting one of these pistols. Love it, but why no mags? 15 rounders are available. Only referen...

Re: Taurus G2S?

I was looking at the G2C to replace my 365.To be honest I have a hard time trusting the 365 with the way it chews up my mags. The pic shows my mags after 1500 rounds through the 365. I am always cleaning plastic shavings out of the gun. And Sig wasn't helpful either. They told me they know about th...

Depends on the price. I've seen on Facebook a "dealer" saying it will be around $895 retail. Deal killer for me.
