    Well while I rarely see a new pistol I want now days I handled one the other day I felt the value was worth ordering one and trying it out.

    The Canik C100 9mm CZ 75 Compact Clone

    [​IMG]

    Over the years I have left Glock and bought M&Ps (Still have a 9c), Beretta's, etc... but I always came back to the Glock. I have a G19 OD and a G17 RTF....

    A fellow forum member here who seems to a ideologue wrapped around CZ propaganda (You know who you are!) ordered this clone and though I rarely handle most of the firearms that come through for transfer, this one had a bit of intrigued.

    Well the one I ordered has shipped and the tracking # says it will be here tomorrow. So I will let you know how it shoots when it gets here.

    It is a pretty faithful rendition of a CZ 75 compact. At 22.6 oz (31oz loaded), it is also quite a bit lighter than a CZ. One difference that I did notice is the hammer pin isn't held in by an external retaining pin. There is a pin, but it is on the inside so replacing the hammer with an aftermarket one might be a problem. The only other big difference is that the recoil spring is braided:

    I bought it from Bud's Gun Shop $345 with insurance shipped. (Cheaper than I could buy it wholesale.)

    I liked mine when I had it. The CZ holsters are not a direct fit (in kydex anyhow), but I had a few that fit it fine. Never had an issue with it.

    About a month ago I purchased a Canik and have been very pleased with it. On another forum, I did a photo comparison between the Canik and the Cz 75 Compact. There are quite a number of internal differences between the two pistols.

    I was so pleased with this pistol that I am cogitating the purchase of a second Canik compact. If Tristar had a full size pistol with an aluminum frame, I would not hesitate in buying one.

    Looking forward to your range report.

    No one is importing the L-120?

    I've always been a real fan of the Tanfolgio/Witness pistols,

    [​IMG]

    and wouldn't mind a Turkish made CZ copy like the Aramalite or now Canik pistols.

    Not really a fan of the CZ Compact, PCR, or P-01, as the RAMI and 75B pistols fit me better.

    (BTW: Turkish Police and other security forces there have carried the 75B for a number of years)

    Any CZ clone is a good way to get hooked on the stoic CZ design and you will eventually
    own a real-deal CZ.

    CZF,
    Perhaps you can answer the following question.
    On the czub site, there are a number of pistols identified as model TR, pisotls for Turkey. Are these made in Turkey or made in Uhersky Brod for the Turkish market?
