Summary: The description, specs, pricing, photo and user ratings for the Canik55 TP-9 SA pistol.
Canik55‘s TP-9 SA is a semiauto handgun built on a black polymer frame with a steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. Unlike the original TP-9, the TP-9 SA features a single-action-only striker-fired system that requires cocking the gun before it will fire. The original TP-9 features a double-action/single-action striker-fired system that allows you to fire a de-cocked gun with a long double-action stroke. (Here’s the link to our in-depth review of the original TP-9.)
Other features include:
- A black-chrome-lined, cold-forged barrel;
- an ambidextrous de-cocker button atop the slide;
- angled, rear grip serrations on the slide;
- a loaded chamber indicator atop the slide;
- a trigger safety;
- no magazine disconnect safety;
- two interchangeable grip backstraps;
- texturing on the grip’s sides and raised nubs on the frontstrap and backstrap to improve grip;
