By The Numbers - Canik TP9SF Elite

As with all TP9 series guns, this one has excellent accuracy.
After a short break in period, you should have full confidence in the reliabilty.
The gun has interchangeable backstraps, but the aftermarket is limited compared to its competitors.
While comfy, a slightly blockier frame and short grip may cause some users to not like the feel
These guns shoot amazingly well for the size, and you get all the goodness of a compact pistol in a sub-compact package.

Glock 26

Glock 26


“The Glock 26 is affectionately known as the “baby Glock.” This 6.41-inch long sub-compact handgun is the smallest of Glock’s 9mm models.  And while it’s a great concealed carry gun, the G26’s small size makes the handgun difficult to handle for people with large hands. The G26 didn’t get the nickname “baby Glock” for no reason – it’s tiny.

When Glock released the G26 Gen 4, they added two great features — adjustable backstraps and a magazine-release button that’s easier to access. While these modifications helped make the handgun easier to handle, the gun’s small size may take some getting used to.

Like with other Glock products, the “baby Glock” is designed to be just as durable and accurate as its predecessors. It comes with a 10-round magazine, so you don’t get as much firepower as you would with bigger 9mm Glocks. Don’t let the size fool you though, the G26 is just as strong as full-sized 9mms.

The G26 is designed for one primary purpose: concealed carry. If you’re looking for a gun that’s guaranteed to be comfortable and easy to lug around, you won’t find a better match. Its small size makes the G26 the best gun for shooters who need compactness over versatility.” – Brandon Harville

final verdict

If you are looking for a true sub-compact pistol that is a little bit beefier and fills out that hand better than smaller micro-compacts like the P365, then the TP9SF Elite might be for you. Accuracy and shootability are excellent for a gun of its size, which is partly due to the amazing trigger that comes equipped on all Canik TP9 series guns. Ambi controls, quality sights, and solid ergonomics put the TP9SF Elite on par with guns that cost twice as much.
