Delray Beach, FL – - Century Arms, the exclusive importer of Canik handguns and accessories, was presented with the Handgun of the Year award for its TP9SFx Pistol at the 2nd Annual 2017 Industry Choice Awards on July 22, 2017 hosted by Rockcastle Shooting Center. The TP9SFx is the 'out-of-the box,' race-ready, competition pistol from the Canik TP9 product line.
"As the exclusive importer of TP9 series pistols in the United States and a close partner of Canik, we are both honored and humbled to receive this coveted award." said Jason Karvois, Century Arms Director of Sales. "This year the field was filled with excellent handguns from all the major manufacturers and we are incredibly excited that the TP9SFx pistol came out on top."
A panel of 30 evaluators came to Rockcastle Shooting Center for several days of hands-on testing and evaluation of 98 products for consideration in product categories of rifles, handguns, shotguns, optics, accessories and ammunition. Evaluators consisted of gunsmiths, range owners, retailers, distributors, recreational shooters, law enforcement and military personnel. The evaluators spent 28 hours of detailed analysis with 23 questions per product starting with visually examining products on a bench and then live-fire function testing. Oneida Molded Plastics lead the team of hand selected delegates from the firearms community for the prestigious, unbiased selection of the Products of the Year awards. Each submitting company was provided the audited confidential evaluation results of their product.
Specifically optimized for competitive shooting, the TP9SFx was designed to be ready for competition right out of the box, without any modifications needed. The slide is "Optics Ready" with four different red dot interface plates and also features industry standard dovetail sight cuts that hold and set Warren Tactical sights. Additional features and equipment include a 5.2" barrel, two magazines (both with extended baseplates providing a 20 round capacity), interchangeable backstraps, an extended slide stop, extended magazine release, Cerakote™ finished slide, and a threaded hole on the optic mounting plate for use with an optional ambidextrous cocking handle designed for use in competition. Designed as an affordable option for action pistol and 3-gun competitors looking for a reliable handgun with premium features, the TP9SFx has an MSRP of $549.99.
