Delray Beach, Fla. – (August 13, 2020) – Canik is proud to once again support the slogan of “Superior Handguns” with yet another recognition as the ICA (Industry Choice Awards) Concealed Carry Pistol of the Year with the TP9 Elite SC! The TP9 Elite Subcompact (SC) is a concealable, lightweight, reliable, double stacked, striker fired polymer pistol. This pistol comes chambered in 9mm and features a 12 round standard capacity while still being easily concealed at an impressive 1.45” width and 6.70” overall length. This pistol capitalizes on all of the amazing features the Canik brand has become known for while adapting to the needs of the discreet firearms owner.
“The demand for a reliable, double stacked, concealable handgun, at a price point the blue collar American could afford without sacrificing quality or comfort was a challenge the Canik team accepted head on! We are proud to say that the TP9 Elite SC is exactly that, a superior handgun,” said Adam Ruonala, Canik USA’s National Director of Marketing. “This firearm was designed with the sole intent of being an everyday carry for everyone who wants the peace of mind in knowing the capacity and functionality of the pistol is top of the line. The fact that it was selected over other industry heavyweights as the best of the field in such an innovative year for concealed carry is truly an honor we don’t take lightly!”
The 3.60” barrel is the optimal length designated by Canik’s trusted engineers to ensure top tier accuracy out of the 4.60” tall TP9 Elite SC. The weight comes in at a minuscule 24.78 ounces which results in an effortless carry. The nickel coated internals result it the smooth functionality that the Canik line has become internationally known for.
The features of the TP9 Elite SC far exceed the basic standards of a subcompact. The firearm comes in a number of durable and sleek finishes, optics ready slide mount allowing co-witness with iron sights, a loaded chamber indicator, ambidextrous slide release, reversible magazine release, white dot front sight and black out rear sight for easy low light target acquisition.
The TP9 Elite SC offerings do not stop at the above mentioned details. Every pistol also comes standard with the new subcompact holster which has the ability to mount for an inside or outside the waistband carry. Each pistol comes with a 12 and 15 round magazine. The new Canik designed 15 round magazine features a grip extension module which allows the shooter to operate this firearm as a compact, giving the operator a multi purposed pistol tunable to an ever changing day to day landscape. The TP9 Elite SC has an MSRP of $429 and is available now.
Team Canik is excited to use this award as a catalyst for the brand and intends to strive for nothing less than Superiority in the firearms industry!
