After a short hiatus during the blustery Pacific Nortwest winter, Patrick Kelley is back with another Out of the Box and Into the Match review! This week he’s taking the new Canik TP9SFx for a spin. For those of you who haven’t watched one of these reviews before, Patrick takes a brand new gun, gives it a quick clean and oil, then heads to a Steel Challenge match to see how it performs. Afterwards, he usually does some 25 yard accuracy testing with different ammunition loads to see what kinds of grouping he can get with the new handgun. Check out how the Canik TP9SFx performs with Federal Syntech ammunition!
This new Canik TP9SFx was designed with the competition shooter in mind. Based on the original TP9SA (which Patrick has also reviewed), this performance handgun was built to help shooters in the growing field of shooting sports. The Canik TP9SFx comes with standard dovetail sight cuts for your preferred sights, though you probably won’t get too much better than the stock Warren Tactical sights with red and green fiber optic front post. The TP9SFx also has a removable top plate that allows for easy installment of a red dot optic. The pistol ships with four different red dot interface plates, so you can swap multiple optics with minimal hassle. The longer slide has been lightened for longer sight radius and reduced muzzle rise and has a gray cerakote finish. Other features include a match grade barrel, 3.5 pound single action trigger, extended mag release, and adjustable slide lock. The frame features a Picatinny rail for a light or laser. The pistol ships with two 20-round magazines, interchangeable parts (back straps, red dot interface plates, and magazine catch extensions), a polymer holster with paddle and belt attachments, cleaning brush, and lifetime warranty. For the price, you can’t find much of a better deal.
