It’s a quality handgun that fires great and is fun to shoot. The TP9SF comes with some high-grade features–most notably its trigger–and a reliability factor you would come to expect for a conceal carry firearm. Not only that…But the Canik is perfect for those on a budget!
Despite not having the service record or reputation of the Glock, the Canik TP9SA is also quite reliable, and it actually offered better accuracy than the Glock with Winchester NATO-spec 124gr +P, making it more appropriate for competition use.
Canik is trying to earn a share of the US market. Doing so by keeping prices down to acquire new customers. Same gun with a different brand name would cost hundreds more.
