Team Canik recently introduced the new Canik Creations collection which includes four different Canik TP9SF pistols with special edition Cerakote finishes. These finishes include “Reptile Green,” “Woodland Bronze,” “Tiger Dark Grey” and “Woodland Green.”

Each of the four different finishes is anchored around a base color like green, grey, bronze or dark grey. All of the finishes include stylized camouflage patterns with different hues that match to the base color of the pistol. Both the steel slide and polymer frame are finished in a distinctive Cerakote finish while the barrel, trigger and other accent parts have a background black color that compliments the frame and slide color.

The TP9SF 9mm pistol is Canik’s flagship pistol and is a polymer frame striker fired pistol whose original design was inspired by the German made Walther P99. Unlike most other striker-fired pistols, however, The Canik TP9SF still makes use of the P99-style original striker-cocked indicator found directly behind the slide. The TP9SF uses Mec-Gar produced 18- or 20-round magazines which have a solid reputation for reliability and functionality.
