Century Arms has announced a product safety warning and upgrade notice for its Canik TP9SA, TP9SF, TP9SFx, TP9SF Elite and TP9SF Elite-S pistols.

According to the release, evaluations and tests have shown that “repeated abusive dropping of pistols” could result in damage to these pistols’ safety features and an unintentional discharge. Therefore, the company is offering a voluntary upgrade to the trigger safety spring and firing pin block spring for those Canik models. The upgrade doesn’t alter any feature or design of the pistols.

Century Arms says there aren’t any safety concerns with these guns when used under ordinary conditions. Rather, the goal here is to prevent drop discharge in heavy or severe duty conditions that are beyond industry standards.

Canik will provide all the parts and workmanship for the upgrade completely free of charge, but customers are responsible for all shipping costs. Century Arms says it’s hoping to finalize the upgrade process by Friday, Sept. 8. After that, head over to for complete instructions on how to receive the upgrade.
