Just received my TP9V2 back from Applied Arsenal Finishes. They did a fantastic job on the slide. This is the very first Canik I purchased, which launched Canik Fanatik. I’m definitely happy with the quality of work AAF did on the slide, and I’ll be having them do more work in the near future. I’ve always liked the battle worn look, and on this V2 it really stands out from the crowd.

As always, join us for more Canik discussions at the Canik Fanatik Forum.


And of course I couldn’t resist taking a selfie on St. Patrick’s Day wearing my Irish Green CF t-shirt and showing off my newly refinished slide. This is one pistol that I will never part with. It’s been such a phenomenal performer and will be passed down to my daughter someday.


Shout out to Applied Arsenal Finishes. Follow us on YouTube.
