Just visited Canik home site, no more Shark?

Post by Moken » Thu Jan 10, 2019 2:51 pm

While in their site in Turkey I didn't find a Shark any longer. I wonder if they will still produce them for Tristar. We will be losing a great piece if they don't. I absolutely love my Shark C and the wifes T100. Have been lusting over a T120.

I'm pretty sure that was discontinued awhile ago. I've heard there's some others that are discontinued too, but I can't remember which models.

It's been a few years since any of the Shark's were even imported under the Canik name. I think the C and P series under Tristar are still coming in but the T's and S's I think are discontinued but new ones are still available for now. If you're wanting a T120 now would be the time to grab one while you can still easily find them.

I just bought a Super Blackhawk and AR15 so the "gun budget" is a bit thin right now, LOLOL

No kidding. I'm gonna have to dig deep and see if I can find the funds. I've always wanted a T120, awesome looking guns.

Which AR15 did you pick up? I've bought a couple recently because they are ridiculously cheap on PSA's website.

I got a PSA upper and a Ruger Elite lower.

The S model is still shown on Canik's and Tristar's websites. They even come with a "extended tail stops cock bite". Canik may want to work on their English translation terminology.

I love the T-120 and decided I had to get another in case anything catastrophic happened to my old one. I ordered one from Centerfire Guns Thursday at 2 PM. I got an email that the gun shipped at 11:30 PM. It was delivered to my FFL Friday and I picked it up at 2 PM. 24 hours from order to pick up. It is an amazing system when everything works like its supposed to.

I do the same thing with my favorite guns. I have multiples of the V2,DA and Elite. If one goes down, I can run another one while it's in for repair. The T120 is also a thing of beauty, and I've wanted one of those for ever. If only money grew on trees.

I'm all for anything that stops cock bite :shock: They must hire the same people who translate Chinese instructions to English.

Been awhile since I've ordered from Centerfire, shipping wasnt always so quick.

Thought about picking up a 2nd T100 but other then the barrel most of the wearable parts can either be directly replaced with cz parts or the cz part needs a little modification and will fit.
