It was listed at shot show as 599.99 but the changed the price by 250. Bad move but it’s their company and they are going to regret it.
At shot show it was 599.99 than somebody got the bright idea to up the price by 250. Not a good move at all to say the least and should be illegal for them to do especially when they showed us a different price before. Their company so they can do what they want but I am sure they are going to regret thw decision. They might sell a few bit most is going to pass on that price tag.
If unfriendly regimes want to continue to sell Americans the implements upon which freedom and safety can be defended, I say sell us more! It says something to the rest of the world that Americans can engage in freedoms choices that the citizens of the various despotic countries who sell us their wares cannot.
MSRP too high, hope the street price is better, for that price too many reliable and proven options out there with much better support in place.
I am a proud American citizen of Indian decent, hurts to see crude comments of banding together of red and confused blue @Scott , i am not taking either side but your very bent of mind and comments sounds very immature “tactically confused” I love guns and go to range often but I too believe there should be some control in place so that kids and people are not harmed on daily basis like they are in US and pls do understand you are a little brainwashed about “red” way of life too, a lot of similar life problems irrespective… Read more »
Geez gentlemen! Why does everything have to devolve to politics? We certainly don’t need disruption among conservatives when there is a much bigger target out there. Let’s all stay on the same side. In the future we are probably going to need each other. Red states need to band together and not fracture like the Dems. There are no various shades of Red. We all need to be bright Red and glowing with our message of “STOP” the idiotic and tactically confused opposition. NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE INVOLVED!
Good question! I hope somebody chimes in. I’d like to know that myself.
Canik is made in Turkey. They may still be a member of NATO, but they are not a friend of the USA. Why do supposedly patriotic sites keep posting reviews of this product?
Hypocrisy much? How many “made in China” products are in your home right now? If you want to be valid you need to boycott China as they are a way bigger threat to us than Turkey could ever hope to be. China is constantly cyberattacking us, amongst other things. So tell me Mr. Patriotic, what are you doing to help other than boycotting buying guns from Turkey which is a laughable enemy compared to China.
I am ignorant on the subject, but I’m going to ask anyway. From what I understand, Canik is a Turkish made product, from a Turkish Company. So, Americans boycotting them would hurt them quite a bit. However, I thought Chinese products were really just American Companies using Chinese manufacturing. So, boycotting them would really just be hurting American companies… yes… no?
For the same reason we purchase Russian AK style rifles. The AK has its’ merits as a firearm platform and for many it just feels right. You may recall Russia was/is not a friend of ours either! Turkish firearms are generally really quite good and economical. The Canik TP9SFx pistol is my personal favorite pistol and friends who have shot it often prefer it over their own pistol. As an aside, Canik also makes parts for Boeing and Airbus planes.
Why buy Isreali product as well? That country is a snake in dove’s clothing.
