    Canik Recall - 9/2/17

    I just saw this and thought I would share it you


    Product Safety Warning and Severe Duty Upgrade

    Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, announced today the Canik Product Safety Warning and Severe Duty Upgrade Notice.
    This notice applies to Canik’s 9x19 mm pistols: TP9SA, TP9SF, TP9SFx, TP9SF Elite, TP9SF Elite-S. Canik’s other products are not subject to this notice.

    All Canik pistols comply with and exceed current industry and military abusive handling standards. There are no safety concerns with the pistols when used under ordinary conditions. Canik is committed to continuously improving its product’s performance. Evaluations and tests have shown that repeated abusive dropping of pistols may result in damage to safety features and unintentional discharge.

    DANGER: IF ANY FIREARM IS DROPPED INTERNAL PARTS MAY HAVE BEEN DEFORMED, DAMAGED OR DISABLED.
    The product must be inspected by a qualified gunsmith or returned for inspection after any significant impact.

    WARNING: REPEATED IMPACTS TO YOUR PISTOL TO TEST ITS SAFETY FUNCTIONS WILL DAMAGE INTERNAL PARTS, AND VOID ITS WARRANTY.
    Firearm abusive handling tests can be dangerous and should only be conducted by qualified individuals in controlled environments with proper safety precautions in place. Canik does not recommend that any customer conduct drop tests or other endurance tests before or after this Severe Duty Upgrade.

    WARNING: CONSUMERS SHOULD ONLY USE CANIK PARTS IN OUR PISTOLS. AFTERMARKET PARTS COULD DECREASE OR DISABLE SAFETY FEATURES OF YOUR CANIK PISTOL.
    Canik is committed to manufacturing safe, reliable, innovative and affordable firearms. We are offering a voluntary upgrade to the trigger safety spring and firing pin block spring on the Canik models noted above. This is to further increase the safety of Canik pistols for enhanced drop discharge prevention in heavy/severe duty conditions that are beyond industry standards. The Severe Duty Upgrade does not alter any feature or design of the pistols.

    Canik will provide all parts and workmanship at no charge, but customers will be responsible for shipping costs. Steps for upgrading your pistol?
    Our goal is to have the Severe Duty Upgrade process in place by Friday, September 8, 2017. After this date, please visit www.CanikUSA.com for complete instructions on how to receive your Severe Duty Upgrade.

    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote" - Benjamin Franklin

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Correct me if I'm wrong...didn't this happen once before? Or was it some other Turkish made polymer pistol?

    O.. M... G.. Another firearm that fires off a round if it's been dropped. Let's see how Century and Canik handle this compared to Taurus, Remington, etc. maybe people just need to stop dropping their firearms.
    PT1911 - 45ACP, Pietta 1873 SAA - 45LC, PT709SS slim, Heritage RR 6.5" 22LR/Mag dual cylinders

    That's what I was thinking.

    Interesting that I went to Centuries Website and could not find this warning. https://www.centuryarms.com/canik-handguns/firearms

    https://www.centuryarms.com/resources/notices


    Also interesting is that the models affected come equipped with a Safety Lever in the Trigger like Glocks do. Could be that there's a problem with the function of that Safety Lever, but I for one, find that hard to believe.

    Canik TP9 Series Pistols unaffected are the Canik TP9V1 (which I own and operate), Canik TP9V2, and Canik TP9DA, which are all DA/SA operation and lack that aforementioned Trigger Safety Lever. If any of the Canik TP9 series Pistols were to be affected by drop impact, I would have expected it to be one of them.

    I'm not calling this a hoax yet, but it smells like one.

    Hmmm? Wonder if the Glock Underground has struck here?

    You never know. I got it off another forum and shared it here because I knew several members have Caniks. There was no link to a website in the post I copied it from.

    Guess the best way to shop for guns these days is to choose by who has the shortest list. 5 years ago the National Shooting Sports Foundation found that 40% of all guns produced and sold have some kind of defect. 40%.

    Here's an article from 5 years ago on The Truth About Guns; to me the most telling statement regarding that 40% failure rate is "No other industry could survive with a failure rate like this.". NSSF: Shooting Industry Suffers from 40% Return/Defect Rate - The Truth About Guns

    That's probably accurate, and not only that, but just the nature of the product being sold compounds the problem; we're talking about weapons here... this is the one product that can least afford to make safety mistakes.

    Can you imagine car makers sending cars out to dealerships if they forgot to install brakes on 2 out of every 5?

    I've emailed Century through their Website about this issue, just now. We'll see what they say.

    Hmmm. I have not seen this on my Canik forum I am on. I have the TP9sf, and so far, it has been a great pistol. Well, I tend not to drop mine either.
