A new edition to the collection coming soon. It's polymer..?


#1

And it’s polymer…? Oh my! Bought myself a birthday present that I’ll end up carrying.

Should arrive by the end of the week.

Nice!!


#3

Can’t wait to hear how you like it when you get it to the range!


#4

Thanks! Been keeping an eye on this particular model for a while and I’m nearing the time I need to get my license to carry. It’s not the sarsilmaz mega but it’s a good temporary substitute…in fact it might end up being the main EDC. 18rd mags are no joke.


#5

I agree!


#6

I don’t know much, or anything, about this particular firearm. May I ask what drew you to it? I’d love to hear what you think after shooting it too!

Mister_Torgue:

Nice looking gun / nice capacity!

For all the choices available, I am also curious what drew you to the TPS brand.


#8

tell me you’re getting this one?

My top three:

  1. Reputation / reliability
  2. How it felt in my hands / how easy it was to point
  3. Half the price of a PPQ with only slightly less of a trigger
  4. (honerable mention) 18 round mags

John, see above. While it isn’t the Sarsilmaz Mega I was after it was a close second. Wife’s getting the PPQ so there’s that too.

No. Don’t have a desire for supressors and I like the SA/DA functionality. It’s the TPSDA that I bought. :+1:

Very Nice purchase, and they come at a great price, i purchased the TP9Sfx myself and love it. cant beat the price for what you are getting. Congrats brother.

Burnt bronze is beautiful in person. I emailed Century Arms to see if these are rated for +P and or +P+. There are some +P and +P+ with over 500 ft-lbs of energy which is a ton out of a 9mm. I’ll update the thread once I hear back.


#12

SWEEEET!!!


#13

It really is. Very ergonomic and just fits my hand perfectly.


#14

Update:

They are rated for +P but not +P+. Though I get the feeling they haven’t tested +P+… I’m half tempted to email the company in Turkey to ask the factory.

Wish Paul Harrell or @MAC would oblige and test it. I’d send them a box of Buffalo Bore to give it a go and report results back if they so choose. Don’t know how to get in touch with Mr. Harrell or if he even has a Canik TP9. At least Tim is on here occasionally and does have a Canik TP9. :thinking:

Mister_Torgue:

I don’t know of any handguns that state in their owner’s manuals that they are rated for +P+.

Basically, there are no standards that apply to +P+, so the gun manufacturers opt to not support the use of such non-standard loads in writing.


#16

I get that. I just wonder if the mfg in Turkey knows the maximum pressure the firearm can handle. Surely that would be a data point during R&D they had to test yea?


#17

Mister_Torgue:

Yes, they probably do know. Good luck finding out, though.


#18

Awesome piece! On a note about ammo, do you really need +P or +P+? Standard hollow points will do just fine for defensive purposes, unless you’re trying to fight off bears.
