Hi, I'm thinking of buying a SFT Mete. Do I have to get a new holster and mags or can I use my sfx equipment?

Thanks.

You can use the mags, not sure on the holster.

Mags for sure.

As for holster, I don't know if much of anyone really has an answer to that question. It will probably depend on the holster, but until enough get in circulation and people test, we won't know.

Assuming we're talking OWB here, I use a Safariland 578 GLS Pro-Fit with all my Caniks, including the SFT METE, without a problem. This holster accommodates a wide range of other pistols as well, so not be as gun specific as some. The holsters that come with the SFX and SFT METE are identical, save for the METE is FDE and the SFX is black.

That sounds good. So when I get my Mete I don't have to change anything. Great. :-D Thank you.

Actually if you use the included magwell extension you can ONLY use the magazines that come with the METE.

I’ve contacted Century Arms and Canik. They are aware but have no plans to fix the issue.

Maybe for the 20 round mags with the +2, as I've used several Canik and ProMag 18 round mags in my METE SFT with the flared magwell. The +2 probably has a beveled edge on the front to allow it to fully seat with the magwell. If that's the case, I'll just do some light sanding on my other +2's. Easy enough.

Really? You have factory Canik 18rd that fit with the magwell extension?

None of my 18 or +2 magazines fit my METE SFX with the extension on.

Century Arms even sent me a replacement magwell extension but no luck there either.

Maybe because you have the SFT not the SFX?

I don’t agree that sanding the baseplates is an acceptable fix. You are possibly weakening the structure of the baseplate. This is a mistake by Canik that they should fix. I can’t believe that they released the pistol for sale without checking the tolerances.

My +2 mags from the old SFX work fine in my SFT with the magwell. I used them a couple weeks ago during a class with no issues.

Thanks for the information.

Maybe just the SFX has the issue.

Sucks because other than this problem I have been very happy with the Canik’s I own.

I hope Canik fixes the issue sometime in the near future…..
