“The METE SFX series by Canik introduces another striker-fired, polymer 9mm pistol into an already crowded market. But priced just over $500 and with a bunch of extras, I think the METE SFX is a clear winner. The gun performed well at the range, shot accurately, and feels great.” – Johnny B
“The METE SFT by Canik offers another striker-fired, polymer 9mm pistol in an already crowded market. But priced just over $500 and with a bunch of extras, I think it offers a nice choice for those that want to carry without spending a ton of money. The SFT would make a decent addition to any concealed carry setup.” – Johnny B.
