Canik TP9SFL Pistol Wins the Ballistic’s Best Award

Delray Beach, Fla. –   – Century Arms, the exclusive importer of Canik handguns and accessories, was presented with the Editor’s Choice award for Best Versatile/Value Pistol for its TP9SFL pistol at the Ballistic’s Best award ceremony on May 4, 2018 hosted by Athlon Outdoors. The TP9SFL was designed to provide shooters with a more tactically oriented version of the popular TP9SFx competition-ready pistol, while maintaining all of the same performance characteristics.

“Century Arms and Canik constantly strive to provide consumers with the finest handgun offerings in the world at the best value possible,” said Jason Karvois, Century Arms Director of Sales. “It is our honor to accept Ballistic Magazines recognition of the TP9SFL as the best value and most versatile pistol made today. We will continue to innovate and bring more exciting Canik models and accessories to market.”

The Athlon Outdoors evaluation team selected firearms that represented superiority in their class with the most significant developments over the past year. The TP9SFL made its debut at the Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous event held in October 2017 where the Athlon editorial team was given an opportunity to see it first hand and test and evaluate the pistol. The feature packed TP9SFL, with its very attractive price point, definitely caught the attention of the Athlon team.

Built on the same base platform as the popular full-size TP9SF pistol, the TP9SFL is a military-grade, 9mm, striker-fired pistol featuring a match grade barrel with button-cut rifling, forward slide serrations, loaded chamber indicator and a rear striker status indicator. Canik added additional features consisting of an extended, 5.2-inch barrel and lightening cuts that keeps the barrel cool under the rapid fire experienced during a competition. The long sight radius, combined with Warren Tactical sights, makes the TP9SFL pistol an excellent choice for competition, home defense, or tactical applications, with an affordable MSRP of $519.99.
