    I've always heard that caniks are CZ clones and prices of these cheaper guns have gone up quite a bit. I did a quick google search and the matching equivalents didn't pop up. I'm looking specifically for the CZ model that "inspired" the TP9SFX.

    It’s a lot of gun for $450 even if it isn’t inspired by a CZ. IMHO Canicks are Turkish clones of whatever design they can get away with copying with being sued.

    Canik makes CZ clones which are imported by TriStar.

    Canik makes Walther P99 knock-offs and derivatives which are imported by CanikUSA.

    The original Canik TP9 (here and here) was very similar to the Walther P99. The TP9DA is the closest current Canik to the TP series' P99 inspiration.

    Since the Walther PPQ is essentially a P99 without DA or decock capability, you could say most of the current Canik TP series draws inspiration from the PPQ.

    Canik makes outstandingly good handguns. I have two of them and gave one to an entry level friend. Get one. You will not be sorry.

    Ain't no way I'd give an entry level friend a gun. Said friend better be the kind of guy to have my back no matter what, ya know. A 9th or 10th level friend

    This is @tanstaafl72555 we are talking about. An entry level friend for him is in the 'help bury a body' territory. Everyone else is competition. :p

    Thanks for the clarification. That's probably why the quick search didn't turn up what I was looking for.

    I've been on the lookout for the TP9SFX for a few months now. I wish I would've bought one last year when I regularly saw them for $350 on gundeals, and around $500 with the vortex viper. If any of you see one for around $450 within an hour of Alamance County, please shoot me a PM.

    Anyone shot the TP9 Elite Combat Executive HG4950V-N?
