Hi! I just bought a canik tp9sf last week. Would you happen to know of an affordable green or red dot that will work on the sf? Also, can you put a slide tracker on the sf somehow? I have arthritis in my hands and it sure would make it easier. Thanks in advance for any info!

I would check out the HoloSun line up for affordable green dot.

Do you have the SF or SFX?

Not sure about a slide racker if you just have a SF but you could look at getting a lighter recoil spring.

I'd be a little cautious about just installing a lighter recoil spring. There's a balance between absorbing the recoil, proper operation of the firearm and avoiding excessive battering of the parts. In my opinion, if the cases are ejecting approx. 5 feet or so, everything is probably about right. If the ejected brass ends up in the next county, you're likely in for some trouble. And then, too much spring and the pistol won't function properly. So be very cautious about just dropping a lighter recoil spring into any recoil operated pistol.

That is correct. That is why the Spring kit in our store is the spring set for Canik. Canik Arms bought 5000 for testing last year and it is approve by them. I also been shooting the spring set for 3 years and shot more than 40K rounds.

I have th SF. Just trying to figure out which would be better. Also looking for something affordable because I'm disabled and funds are kind of limited these days due to the virus.

Hi Racerxxx77,

With the SF you will need a dovetail mount to use a red dot sight. You might be able to find one tapped for a slide tracker. Or you could drill and tap a hole in the mount for the slide tracker. You would need a sight base for a Glock dovetail cut.

I put in a link for the Strike Industries base but just for information. I don't know anything about Strike. Evolution Gun Works is another choice.

Just don’t try to get a 508T GR from them. I got a Gen1 in Jan. that went bad the first time at the range, this was back in February. I sent it back to them. They acknowledged it was bad but that they were going to upgrade me to the new Version 2 that was just coming out. To date, it still has not come out. They have sent me a 507 Green Dot to give me something to use until the Gen2’s arrive but I’ve never even put it on the gun. Wondering if they Gen2 they promised to send me will even become a reality with the Trijicon lawsuit going on.
