USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Canik series of handguns have been widely popular.  Affordable, reliable, and seemingly with a variant for everyone.

You've seen our reviews of the TP9 SF Elite Pistol, and TP9 DA handgun.

One concern for any gun, let alone imported guns, is if there will be enough aftermarket parts support.  The industry has answered with holsters, and Warren Tactical became an OEM supplier for Canik-importer Century Arms.

Offering such value, some have wanted to carry Caniks, or have one as a nightstand gun or glove box gun.  One strongly-recommended feature of such a gun is a good set of highly visible night sights.

Century Arms has worked with TruGlo on just that project and now is the first to offer night sights that you can be install at home.

Having reviewed more than 100 handguns I've developed a taste and tolerance for sights and so was curious how these would fare.

TRUGLO Canik Tritium Pro Night Sights

Rear sight gap remains the same on the new TRUGLO Canik Pro Night Sights.

First in comparison was to determine if the sight picture would be similar.  Sight picture is a factor of dimensions.  Although more of a traditional block than U, the TruGlo sights have the same rear gap width.  They also feature serrations to reduce glare.

The TRUGLO Canik Tritium Pro Night Sights' front sight (on bottom) has a much larger dot.

The front sight post is nearly the same size, but the dot much larger.  This aids in quick acquisition.

So will I keep the TruGlo sights on my TP9 DA?  yes.  As with any change to a firearm they require training to gain familiarity, but overall they are good sights.  Accurate, and useful in all lighting.  As you can see in the two smaller photos above they really pop in reduced lighting.

The TRUGLO Canik Tritium Pro Night Sights are available now direct from Century here.

    1. Mr Bailey: Yes, Turkey is a predominantly Muslim country, but it is not governed by radical Islamist fundamentalists. To the contrary, they are governed by a very pro-Western government, and have active NATO members for decades. We have had bases in Turkey, and our Navy frequently visits Turkish ports, and exercises with their Navy. The have been our allies for a very long time. They sit at the underbelly of Russia, thereby being a strategically value to NATO. As for their firearms, Canic makes handguns for the Turkish police and armed forces. Vthey have received glowing reviews from many writers on firearms.
      Another Turkish manufacturer, Stoeger, is an affiliate of Benelli shotguns. I have a Stoeger 12 Ga pump, and it has never failed to accomplish what I ask it to.

      Do yourself a favor, and give them a try. The Germans and the Russians murdered many million people, before and during WWII, yet people still seek their arms today. Lighten up. You might have an enjoyable experience.

      1. Dear mr. Campbell,

        Thank you for replying so forthrightly, and from an historical perspective quite accurately.

        However, you are not up to date on to the form of turkey’s current government, nor of the man who is actually in charge: Tayyip Erdogan.

        He fancies himself a Neo Khalif! No, I am not joking. The man is attempting to become the leader, that is the religious leader, of all of Islam once again, in a Neo Ottoman Empire.

        He has thrown hundreds of journalists in jail and had dozens others murdered. He has thrown professors, teachers, politicians, his opponents, into prison without due process, or trial.

        He is the Turkish version of Vladimir Putin. He does not believe in the rule of law, he believes in personal power and has turned Turkish politics to the point of Turkey becoming an Islamic Republic.

        Were Gamal Abdul Ataturk alive today, he would have Erdogan either shot or hanged for treason! Erdogan has thrown countless hundreds of Military Officers in the prison without trial, executed officers that he saw as a serious threat without trial.

        This is Turkey today, right now at this moment.

        Yes we have bases there, but probably for not much longer, because he will force us out. Further, he is our and Israel’s about anime, publicly stating so.

        The bottom line, is that today’s Turkey is no longer Atatürk’s Turkey; governed by the rule of law and a strong military to check the civilian government.

        Pertaining to the Canik line of arms, or Stoeger, I have no other opinion than that they are excellent weapons! They are very well made, they shoot wonderfully, and they’re very reliable.

        However, every time someone buys a new sidearm shotgun or rifle, made in Turkey, they are supporting Erdogan’s government: the taxes that are paid on those products by the companies that make them, help go to support the would be Khalif.

        I have no problem with anyone purchasing a used Canik, Stoeger, product in the US, because that money will not go to the government of Turkey and the would-be Islamic Republic.

        I hope this clarifies my original post, and the realities of present day Turkey. Thank you again for commenting and I look forward to your reply.

    2. The tf-x pro Night Sights series by Truglo are even better!

      I boycott any products from Turkey, so that I do not support the radical Muslim government there!

      1. You must be Canadian. Because you sound like a damn socialist. If you were truly American you’d be an open Market supporter.
