Century Arms TP9 Elite Combat

Delray Beach, Fla. –– Century Arms, the exclusive importer of Canik handguns and accessories, has announced availability of the highly anticipated, feature rich TP9 Elite Combat. In an industry first collaboration, the TP9 Elite Combat comes standard with multiple performance features designed by custom upgrade specialist Salient Arms International. The compact 9mm TP9 Elite Combat is the latest from Canik, the 2018 Ballistic’s Best magazine Editor’s Choice winner for Versatile/Value Pistol.

A highly customized version of Canik’s already wildly popular TP9SF Elite, the Elite Combat represents an unmatched value in the handgun market with an MSRP of only $849.99 and an impressive list of performance enhancements. “Century and Salient Arms agreed on the TP9SF Elite as the ideal platform for the new Combat model due to its popularity and versatility, with its size being ideal for both concealed carry and full duty applications,” says Jason Karvois, Director of Sales for Century Arms.

“Salient Arms International first noticed Canik very early on,” said Jacob Lunde, Salient’s head of Operations. “SAI's booth was located not far from Canik during Canik's first SHOT Show Media Day, and we took advantage of the opportunity to shoot the pistol. We were very impressed by how well the pistols performed, and left with a high respect for the product. Even prior to collaborating on the project, we would quickly recommend Canik pistols to anyone look for a great value in a pistol. We were excited to consider a collaboration, and to further enhance the already excellent line-up of Canik pistols.”

? Proprietary Convex Thread Protector with 13.5x1mm Left-Hand Threads
