Canik and Salient Arms International – a match made in, err, heaven? Apparently so, as the Turkish purveyor of economically-priced pistols and the custom handgun specialist have teamed up on a new(ish) 9mm – the TP9 Elite Combat Executive.

Basically, it’s Canik’s popular TP9 Elite Combat striker-fired polymer, dolled up with a bunch of Salient Arms International upgrades. These include a fluted and gold PVD-over-nitride coated match-grade barrel (threaded), black nitride-coated slide, aluminum Speed Funnel magazine well and fiber optic sights. Also, it looks to have a pretty nice flat-faced aluminum trigger and a 15-round magazine with a plus-three extension for a total of 18-rounds.
