A different gun, but most likely the same issue, stiff, new recoil spring designed for defensive ammo, used with cheap, lightweight, low powered ammo.
The magazine limit is probably the least annoying of NJ gun laws. The purchase permitting process is ridiculous even when it goes according to the statute, which it rarely does (my BIL waited months just for his FPID.) Couldn't wait to leave.
I had one that ran great for almost 4,000 rounds. The person who bought it from me still has it and bought another.
Use your favorite search engine to find "canik fanatik forum". It's a good forum dedicated to Caniks.
unfortunately my ability to post pictures leaves a great deal to be desired.
I have no hands on experience with a Canik but my SAR9 required breaking in with 9mm NATO (124 grain). I think a lot of the Turkish made semis are designed for 9mm NATO rounds, but that's just a guess on my part.
I like the SFX so much I just bought the new SFX Rival Darkside. Pick up in a few days
The SFX is a great gun and you will get lots of good use from it!
Have to check my brass stash and load up some up 135 grain .357 truncated cast I have on hand.
one recommendation was keeping the slide locked back while wating for the first range session. i was dry firing mine to feel the trigger a bit and left the slide locked the night before and had no issues with factory 115 gr and my 147 gr reloads
Totally agree. MELE SFX and TP9SFX both purchased new, when I got them home, gave both a thorough cleaning and left them with the slides locked back. Have had no issues whatsoever with factory 115 gr range ammo from day one.
I said that exact thing to the SAF and GOA when I was notified of their work against the Washinton ban. I asked where their lawsuits are in NJ to overturn our draconian laws.
I am not sure if I ever had a malfunction unless it was an upside down primer.
95% of my ammo shot has been coated lead,FMJ and JHP all my reloads and usually 124grn.
