A review of the Canik 55 TP9 by Handguns
About the handgun: "The TP9 is a polymer-framed 9mm pistol with a 17+1 capacity. This is a full-size gun with a 4-inch barrel. The action type of the TP9 is a bit unusual. It is a striker-fired gun, but it works a bit like a DA/SA pistol with an exposed hammer. When you first load the pistol and drop the slide, you have the option of leaving it as is. The trigger will stay all the way forward if you don’t touch it, but a light tug on it will reveal no pull weight for the first two-thirds of its travel length, then it will click into place. Pull the trigger then and the result will be a crisp 5-pound trigger pull. Or, you can hit the decocker at the top rear of the slide. When decocked, the trigger stays forward and you will get a long, traditional DA pull of about 10 pounds."
About the company: "Canik 55 is actually a division of Samsun Yurt Savunma, one of Turkey’s biggest defense contractors. While it probably has some historical significance, their small symbol of a dolphin is not something you often see on a pistol grip. They actually have a “Dolphin” series of guns, which are CZ-75 clones. The TP9, on the other hand, looks like a copy of the Walther P99."
