Canik recently announced a new partnership with Salient Arms International. The result is a 2019 TP9 Elite Combat customized by Salient Arms International, dubbed the TP9 Elite Combat Executive.
Canik TP9 Elite Combat Executive Features
The TP9 Elite Combat Executive features a distinctive gold barrel by Salient that is fluted and match-grade quality. The barrel also utilizes a PVD-over-nitride coating. Meanwhile, the black polymer frame mates to a nitride-coated jet black slide. The Executive comes suppressor-ready with 1/2×28 RH threads.
The Elite Combat Executive includes the new flat-face aluminum trigger with a black full-face safety. The optics-ready slide comes with an optics mounting plate and charging handle. Further upgrades include a side-reversible, extended magazine release and additional backstrap for customizing the fit. Also, an included retention holster features Slide Lock Release.
Salient also nitride coats the slide, barrel and small steel parts. Meanwhile, the internal components feature nitride or high-wear nickel coatings. The Salient collaboration includes the barrel and thread protector and an aluminum Speed Funnel magazine well. Additionally, the sights include a fiber-optic front. The 15-round magazine includes a +3 extension for 18 rounds overall.
Canik says the Elite Combat Executive to run in a limited quantity. Above all, the MSRP is set at just $749.99; the pistol ships in early May.
