Re: SFx spring replacement

The entire TP9 series was designed by Canik to be a duty pistol and go a minimum 50K rounds as its service life. I doubt that you have to worry about the springs. I upgraded to the Sprinco, which may or may not have a service duty lifetime, I have no way of knowing, but don't expect to change it. If...

Hmmm. Performance Center version comes with the RMR cut and still keeps the rear sight. What a concept!

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

It has been not quite a year, but I haven't needed to touch the zero since I first set it when I bought the Venom.

S&W M&P Full Size 9mm

I've been invited to shoot in a USPSA event 28 JAN. I'll be going with a friend and his boys who will shoot also. So, we'll see how it goes. We're going to get together and go over firearm requirements & restrictions. Going over the rules it sounds like my M&P 9mm full-size will be good for the fir...

Re: The Offical Red Dot Thread

As the young people say, I'd like to give a shout out to Vortex for replacing my stripped Venom battery cover quickly for free (I offered to pay for a new one) and with absolutely no hassle. I think that they may have changed the slot design, but in any case, I either never had the right screwdriver...

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

Thanks for your reply. Im curious to see how aht ADE works for you. Im interested in putting a red dot on but not interested enough to do $250 for it. If the $50 version works as well for a home defense situation or taking to the range, then ill try that. Im curious tho, how well do red dots in gen...

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

You may never compete, but you will get old.

The red dot extends your pistol shooting fun by years, if not decades, so it will be good to have the option.

Re: Who carries a Canik

Yes, model 25.

It may be that the LH models are $17 and the RH are $26 (but out right now).

The SFX fit with the Venom. I assume that Elite Combats will as well.

I'm currently using a Glock 28N Red Spring and the Canick clips work fine. The only difference I've seen is the Canik ones appear t...

Re: Who carries a Canik

I tried a friend's M&P9 holster and it pretty much fit the SFX fine, so I ordered the OWB Serpa Sport from Amazon for $26. Wow. A perfect form fit for both the SFX and Elite-S. Lengthwise, the SFX juts out by maybe a half inch and the Elite is maybe a half inch inside. There is maybe a quarter inch ...

Re: Optics for AR 15 ?

I have the older Eotech with the CR123 battery and controls in the rear with a dot and circle reticle (sorry, on the road so I don't have the model number). The reticle is great for CQB ranges. It does lose zero slightly, which might matter a bit at 100 yds but not at all at CQB distances. Apparentl...

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

I would purchase at least two single-stack (say, 7, 8, and 9-round magazines) of a miniaturized, thinner SF Elite. Me I'd be in for a G26ish Elite, or something along the lines of a sig 365 or g43 Elite. OK, so let's do some product development for Canik. The Sig 365 is winning awards everywhere an...

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

Stopped by an Academy today and they had the Elite Combat so I picked one up for the first time. As reported earlier, they also have all guns trigger locked and you are not allowed to try the trigger. The trigger lock also affects your ability to judge the weight of the pistol since it is carrying a...

Yes, the left side. Yes, when I said "trigger", I should have said " trigger bar". Yes, they will include a new roll pin. Again, recall that the original pin was pre-started through the safety, so all you had to do was get it through the trigger bar. I was also thinking that some masking tape around...
