TP9DA, V2 and Elite Combat - Range Session

About a year ago I sold my burnt bronze DA to fund my Elite Combat. Still have my black DA's, but missed the burnt bronze. Yesterday I added another burnt bronze DA to my collection and got some trigger time this morning. As usual, the DA is an excellent shooter. I took my trusty V2 along which of course is worn in, so the trigger is a bit smoother and lighter. But overall, the DA did great with the "break in". I started with a couple hundred rounds of 115gr Blazer, then shot 50 124gr NATO, and ended with a couple mags of 124gr HST to make sure there aren't issues with hollow points. The double action on the new DA is still a little stiff, but manageable. But I definitely like how on my older DA's and V2's how it really has smoothed out and I can put rounds on target center mass quickly. I added the @GallowayPrecision reduced power spring kit to one of my black DA's, and will probably do the same to this one. Like I said, over time they smooth out nicely, but I'm too impatient. I'll probably just throw the spring kit in shortly. Also, I think I've been spoiled by the Night Fision sights I have on some of my other Caniks. I don't mind the white dot front and blacked out rear, but for consistency, I'll probably put a set of Night Fision on the burnt bronze DA as well. For carry, I like it. For competition, I'll stick with the fiber optics on my Elites, or red dots.

Anyway, was another uneventful day at the range. Everything Canik ran flawlessly. I don't know exactly why, but I just really love the V2 and DA TP9 models offered by Canik. I know they are a little unique with the DA/SA trigger, but they also are just about the perfect size for me. But, I do carry a Walther P99c daily, which is a DA/SA striker as well, so it only makes sense that I would find myself shooting the DA and V2 the most. The double action isn't bad at all, the single action is incredible. The V2 was my very first Canik, and I never go the range without it. The double action trigger is so smooth now, and the transition to single action is super easy.

My V2 doesn’t even have the dovetailed front sight.

I'm glad you got another bronze one, Janik! :smile:
I just ordered a Baldr Pro (the new Olight offering - light/green laser) for mine; nightstand gun. Donating my Olight mini to my wife's VP9 - her nightstand gun. I'll probably swap the Baldr Pro on/off the DA on to my Elite, when I carry it, now that I also have a holster on the way from redxgear (the Xpert OWB holster) that can handle it.
I am really thinking seriously about color-filling with black, the branding on the DA's slide. I have read your post a dozen times, and am ready to try it.

Best wishes,
