Manufacturer’s Description

Canik55‘s TP-9 SA is a semiauto handgun built on a black polymer frame with a steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. Unlike the original TP-9, the TP-9 SA features a single-action-only striker-fired system that requires cocking the gun before it will fire. The original TP-9 features a double-action/single-action striker-fired system that allows you to fire a de-cocked gun with a long double-action stroke. (Here’s the link to our in-depth review of the original TP-9.)
