In the world of firearms, there is an undisputed leader in the realm of tactics, precision, and style. For decades, Canik has repeatedly shown its superiority as a competition firearm, paving the way for numerous professional and amateur shooters to relish in the joy of victory. Additionally, the Eastern gunmaker has long held the final word in domestic defense, its products having been adopted as the official firearm of the military of Turkey, its home country.
In the pack of Canik’s many products, the TP9SFx is the Alpha, upon which many of these accomplishments rest. An iteration of the classic TP9 handgun, the SFx showcases a deliberate and measured series of iterations that have led to its creation as one of the best handguns in the world.
A Little History
As the workhorse of the Canik line, the TP9 has seen numerous iterations over the years, arriving first at the TP9SA, which helped elongate the blocky frame of the original and make it more ergonomic. So much of what makes the SFx great was first envisioned in the SA model, including the better grip and the slide-mounted release.
The SA eventually gave way to the SF, which adopted the striker-fire trigger, usually seen in Glock pistols. That would carry over as well to the next iteration, the famed SFx.
An Enthusiast’s Best Friend
As the flagship model of the 45 Blast guns, the SFx boasts one of the most user-friendly designs in the industry, outfitted with multiple adaptor plates for attaching numerous styles of gun accessories, whether that be a reflex sight, extended magazine, or one of 45 Blast’s famous compensators. Each gun comes standard with fiber-optic Warren Tactical sights, an extended, ergonomic slide stop, and an adjustable magazine catch with a reversible option.
- Extended magazine capacity of 20 rounds
- An elongated slide with lightning slots in the barrel for lighter weight and faster lockup
- Attachment slots for electronic sights, under-barrel accessories, and an extended cocking rod.
- Ambidextrous slide release
- Single-action trigger with 3.5 - 4 lbs pull weight.
The Canik TP9SFx is one of the most in-demand of 45 Blast’s guns because its design is so welcoming to customization, which makes it a dream for gun enthusiasts of all experience.
