What is a Canik 55 TP9SA?

The Canik 55 TP9SA is a polymer-framed 9mm pistol with a 17+1 capacity. It is a striker-fired gun that works like a DA/SA pistol with an exposed hammer. When you first load the pistol and drop the slide, you have the option of leaving it as is, with a crisp 5-pound trigger pull, or hitting the decocker at the top rear of the slide, which will give you a long 10-pound trigger pull. The rear of the striker is painted red, and if you can see it through the hole in the back of the slide, you'll know it is cocked.

The Canik 55 TP9SA has a traditional magazine release on the frame behind the rear of the trigger guard. The mag release button is square, metal and aggressively checkered. The frame has subdued finger grooves on the front, with horizontal serrations to improve gripping on the front and back. The pistol also features Warren Tactical Sights, a match-grade 4.46-inch barrel, and a top-mounted disassembly button (decocker). The Canik 55 TP9SA is made in Turkey by Canik 55, a division of Samsun Yurt Savunma, one of Turkey's biggest defense contractors.

Where is the Serial Number on a Canik 55 TP9SA?

The serial number on a Canik 55 TP9SA is located on three places: the frame, the slide, and the barrel. The serial number on the frame is stamped on the right side of the dust cover, near the front of the trigger guard. The serial number on the slide is engraved on the right side of the slide, near the ejection port. The serial number on the barrel is stamped on the top of the chamber, visible through the ejection port when locked open.

The serial number on all three places should match exactly. If they do not match, it could indicate that some parts have been replaced or tampered with. This could affect the performance and safety of your pistol. You should always check the serial number before buying or selling a Canik 55 TP9SA pistol.

Why is the Serial Number Important?

The serial number is important for several reasons. First, it helps you identify your pistol and prove ownership in case of theft or loss. You should always keep a record of your serial number and store it in a safe place.

Second, it helps you track the history and origin of your pistol. You can use the serial number to find out when and where your pistol was manufactured and shipped. You can also use it to check if your pistol has been recalled or involved in any legal issues.

Third, it helps you maintain and service your pistol. You can use the serial number to order parts and accessories that are compatible with your pistol model. You can also use it to request repairs or replacements under warranty or customer service.
