Watch: Canik TP9 SF Reliability Test

Military Arms channel is putting another handgun through the gauntlet.  This time it is the Canik TP9 SF, which is a 9mm handgun manufactured in Turkey.  As of May 2017 retail price is around $350.

Features include:

  • Capacity: 18 + 1
  • Barrel: 4.46”
  • Weight: 1.78 lbs. unloaded
  • Loaded chamber indicator
  • Striker status indicator
  • MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail
  • Cerakote over phosphate

The gauntlet starts out by dunking the handgun in water, then running it through sand, dirt and mud. During the first phase, the handgun is washed off between stages. During the second phase, the handgun is not washed off between stages.

Now for the video.

Sometimes you get what you pay for.  With the Canik TP9 costing around $350 (as of May 2017), I feel the performance was that of a $350 handgun. Let’s face it, this is a value based handgun. However, I would like to see Canik address why the striker failed to release when the trigger was pulled.

I was glad to see the TP9 start working again after being washed off with water.  If I remember right, the S&W M&P 2.0 did not start working again after being washed off.

If I was looking to buy a value based handgun, would I consider the Canik TP9 SF after watching the video? Yes, I would consider the Canik TP9 SF.
