Based near the mountain bearing its name, a name in ancient times that meant a place of protection, Canik has been a significant player in the aerospace defense industry for twenty years and 2019 marks its 10th year as a world-leading firearm manufacturer.
The company’s aerospace manufacturing expertise led to partnerships with Lockheed Martin, Airbus and Boeing, which in turn enabled the development of a high quality polymer pistol and the beginning of the TP series and adoption by Turkish Law Enforcement.
In 2012 Canik partnered with Century Arms to introduce Canik TP pistols to the U.S. market. The company has quickly risen to the forefront of firearm conversations, including being named the 2018 Editor’s Choice for Versatile/Value Pistol by Ballistic Magazine. The pursuit of excellence continues in 2019 with the new TP9 Elite Combat that comes standard with performance upgrades by Salient Arms International.
