I am CCW/home defense minded, so no range toy/comp features for me.

Would love to see them throw their hat into the new micro-compact market.

The 365 and Hellcat need some company.

While I love to shoot both my Elite and Elite SC, neither has been a joy to carry on my small 5'3 135lb frame.

I know it's not supposed to be 'comfortable' to carry, it is supposed to be 'comforting', but I do envy the guns that are 1 inch wide.

While I know the trade off for size reduction can be shootability, I would like to see Canik try and tackle the problem. (While the 365xl feels great in my hand and is better to carry, I shoot poorly with it.)

--
Would love to see them reissue the Stingray C! (I do want this as a range toy)

As for 'new' models in existing line...

Plus one for having optics cut on the Elite SC! Like it or not, red dots are the future and the choice to go micro optic for a 'carry' gun is the right choice for me.
(just got my Holoson 507k after MONTHS being out of stock)

I love the inclusion of both the Raised Tactile loaded chamber indicator AND the Tactile Cocked Striker indicator!
Please keep them!

--The lights are out, you hear the front door crash in and you can instantly FEEL
the status of your weapon instantly.
Very few handguns have this and I believe it to be a great piece of mind.

1) I wish the Cocked Striker indicator was a bit more tactile.
2) I wish Canik would quit pretending their sights were not useless for CCW/home defense. Put on some real night sights with Tritium.

I would like to see a trigger with less takeup, like a Freedomsmith. Shouldn't be any more expensive to produce. Just keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot, as you do now.

My only wish for the wish list:

Tritium night sights. I am a defensive/concealed carry type of person. Range playtoys need not apply.

That said, the Warren night sights fit the bill perfectly as replacements for the factory Warrens on my Elite. That was the only "upgrade" that I felt was needed.

Why change perfect. Keep it the way it is, as well as the decent price. We all can do our own mod's as we can afford them. IMHO

Stretch goal: The nickel trigger bar and such are so much slipperier and easier to clean that they should nickel plate more of the internal parts.

(The first goal remains to get the SFX Mod2 and SF Mod2 here in the states. Sigh.)

I second the call for a heavyweight SFx for competition.
