Four months after making a big splash at SHOT Show, Century Arms—the importer of Canik guns and accessories—has announced it is finally shipping out the new TP9DA, the latest in Canik’s TP9 series of handguns.

A double action/single action 9mm pistol designed to give shooters the ability to carry a DA/SA style trigger in a modern polymer frame, the TP9DA sports a 4.07-inch match grade barrel, loaded chamber and striker status indicator, as well as two interchangeable backstraps to give shooters of all sizes the ability to operate it effectively. The pistol features dovetail sight cuts that hold and set Warren Tactical sights with a dot front sight. Also included is a user-friendly decocker system that lets you carry the TP9DA with a longer first trigger pull, similar to traditional hammer-fired pistols. The TP9DA also boasts a simple disassembly procedure that doesn’t require you to pull the trigger to take the pistol apart. Instead, all you have to do is press the “decocker” button on top of the slide and then go ahead with the normal disassembly procedure.

“The TP9DA was designed to meet the needs of those carrying everyday for personal defense, law enforcement and competition,” William Sucher, Century’s vice president, said in the press release. “We are excited to be able to offer yet another reliable, accurate, and affordable Canik pistol to the U.S. market.”

The new TP9DA is offered in black or a “burnt bronze” cerakote finish. It comes with two 18+1 magazines, a polymer holster with a paddle and belt attachment, and a cleaning rod and brush. MSRP for both models $424.99.
