After market parts

Post by SgtSmeagol » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:52 am

Can anyone tell why I can not find any dealers willing to ship after market springs, guide rods and triggers to Canada for my Canik SFX?. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need an export license, and applying for one is a long and difficult process. Most small to mid-size companies don't want to be bothered with the licensing process and costs.

I've had a few occasions when buying parts on-line here in the US, where I've had to "check off a box" confirming I will not export what I'm buying.

Wolff Gun Springs was one that asks you to confirm you won't export anything you buy...
This was from an order I placed last week after checking off the check box.

Could my daughter who lives in Chicago buy aftermarket parts for SFx, and legally mail them to me in Canada?

NO! Especially with the Anti-Gun libs in Chicago, I wouldn't risk it!!!!
Federal laws would be broken!

So up here in Canada we are screwed for getting parts. I'm wondering if my local gunsmith would be able to order them in for me?

Just screwed on getting parts from the US. Being a gun dealer in CA won't make any difference if the US part(s) mfg/seller doesn't have an export license. They just don't have enough volume outside the US to make it worth it.

Even someone as big as Midway USA has a disclaimer in their "Terms", section 5, last paragraph, that you will not export anything you buy from them...

So please tell me this, is it true that some Glock 17 and Walther Q5 Match parts are compatible with TP9 SFx?

The SFX is largely a Q5 clone. I don’t have a Q5 or SFx to do a detailed comparison, but there probably is some truth to some parts compatibility.

Apex Tactical makes an aftermarket competition trigger and trigger bar assembly that looks exactly like the SFx assembly, and I can buy it online here in Canada.

I do know that you can take a Q5 upper assembly and run it on a SFx lower, and vice versa. So, my guess would be that the trigger components are pretty interchangeable. Canik mags work in the Q5 but not the other way around, because the Q5 mags are shorter.
