Canik Shoot
« on: October 17, 2011, 01:34:18 AM »
Haven't been able to go shooting for a few months. Had some problems with a disc in my neck. So the other day went to the canyon and took some 9mm pistols with me, one being the Canik. (others, CZ-PO-1, Taurus PT111)Shot the daylights out of it without a problem. Pistol is breaking in just fine. Nice handling, glad I did some work on it as suggested by others in the forum here. Looks like they are not being imported right now.  Great forum we have. Spad :)

spad2008, any picture of your handgun, i'm not familiar with this brand. is this made in turkey? i recall seeing one at our local gunshow a few months back. they cost twice as much against my norinco 85b but much cheaper than the cz brand.  the one that i saw is all stainless steel, standard and compact version if i recall correctly.

Frames are Aluminum (Aluminium), the rest Steel, Blued or Satin Industrial Hard Chrome.

These have been discussed before:  http://www.czfirearms.us/index.php?topic=40301.0

Did you end up replacing the recoil spring with a heavier one? Thinking about doing it to mine. Sad to hear they arent being imported at the moment great feeling gun and a very nice trigger once broken in.

Canik USA is not importing anymore guns. They could not come to an agreement for importation/selling. Not sure what will be up with support.

Tap, I did mods on my slide stop. Check my posts and you will come across lot info from others and pictures. Most Caniks didn't seem to have a slide stop problem, but some did,mine being one. Pretty easy to fix. No spring changes on my mine it is good to go as it is... Maybe someone will start bringing them in again. They are like a light weight CZ 75. Nice pistol I really like it. Spad

Really liking my canik the more i shoot it. Gave it a bit of a trigger job this weekend and ran it through a two gun shoot yesterday night. Ran flawless again, at around 450 rounds through it total now with zero issues. Well one issue, my grips cracked so i got some wood ones from ebay for $32 shipped.

Just took my dremel to all contact points with a felt wheel and changed the angle a bit on the sear with a file. Waiting on a hammer spring from wolf to get here so far so good!

I ordered a 15/16 for fullsize and 16/17 for compact since wolff says the new compacts take the full size hammer spring. We will see though!

Canik takes the compact recoil spring and full size hammer spring FYI.

new spring lowered DA pull quite a bit, atleast by finger feel, range report next week to see if 15lb ends up with any light strikes, kinda want to try a 13lbish hammer spring if i can find one....

Trigger is quite a bit better feeling than my 85b, smoother and much better reset (damn you firing block safety)
