I just bought a Canik TP9-V2
« on: July 03, 2020, 06:55:11 PM »
Years ago I bought a Canik TP9-V2 because it was a clone of the Walther P99AS at half the cost. Had lots of fun shooting it, but one day I saw something else and sold the Canik.  I've always regretted it.  Recently, I had some money from selling something else and went looking. (deja vu?)  The TP9-V2 isn't made anymore and the closest thing to it was a Walther PPQ M2 with 4" barrel.  I almost bought it, but at $600 when I could find one on GB, it was a little more than I wanted to spend.

So I went looking for sales, missed the CDNN sale of the Navy version at $550 and it went back up to near $600, plus sales tax of course.

Off to GB again, still no luck.  Then, I thought, why not search Century as the manufacturer since they are the Canik importer versus looking at just Canik as the manufacturer.  Blind luck happens and there is a New, Old Stock TP9-V2 for $313 plus shipping.  Bang, dropped the hammer and it's mine now.  Believe it or not, I had a Blackhawk Serpa holster for a S&W M&P9 lying around and it fits almost perfectly!  Locks up tight.  Not that I'll ever carry it, but it's nice to know good, clean living has prevailed once again.  Now for the virus to subside so I can shoot it without wearing a mask and messing up by breathing.

I just wanted to tell a good story today with all the crap happening in the world.  I'm not posting pics because all you have to do is look at a Canik TP9 SF and except for the decocker on the slide top they are the same.

Enjoy the 4th!

It's almost miraculous to find a new Canik now. I looked for a month & finally found one 43 miles away, bought it & picked it up last week. Wanted black but it was tan. I'll take it. Got the TP9SF One Series. Get to try it Aug 24, healing from cataract surgery. My gun range doesn't make us wear masks but they quit renting guns because they're out of ammo.

I like this gun so much I bought a TP9 SFx ready for optics.  Mainly because it is a Canik and ready for optics with four mounting plates included in price.  I'm not ready for an optic yet, but one day, it'll be necessary to see the sights and and target too.  Anyway I've still not gone to the range but whenever this virus lifts, I'll be ready!
