Century Arms, importer of Canik handguns and accessories, announced that the newest model in Canik’s TP9 series of pistols, the TP9DA, is now shipping.

The double action/single action polymer 9mm handgun was constructed to give shooters the ability to carry a DA/SA style trigger but in a modern polymer frame.

“The TP9DA was designed to meet the needs of those carrying everyday for personal defense, law enforcement and competition”, said William Sucher, Century’s vice president, in a statement. “We are excited to be able to offer yet another reliable, accurate, and affordable Canik pistol to the U.S. market”.

The TP9DA features a 4.07-inch match grade barrel with loaded chamber and striker status indicator. The pistol boasts interchangeable backstraps, providing multiple fits for shooters of all sizes. Equipped with standard dovetail sight cuts, the new gun offers Warren Tactical sights with a dot front sight.

The user-friendly decocker system permits users to carry the handgun with a longer first trigger pull, which is similar to traditional hammer-fired pistols. The TP9DA does not require owners to pull the trigger in order to take-down the pistol, instead all users must doe is press the “decocker” button on the top of the slide. The pistol follows normal disassembly procedure after doing so.

Available in black or “burnt bronze” Cerakote finish, the pistols are outfitted with two 18+1 magazines, a polymer holster with paddle and belt attachment, interchangeable backstraps, cleaning rod and brush.

Century Arms says the latest in the TP9 series is now shipping to retailers with a price tag of $424.99.
