Aluminum "backstrap" grip panel for the Canik TP9SF/SFX/One (full-size)
While not as heavy as our brass version, the added mass of an aluminum backstrap grip panel offers a smaller dose of the same benefits, while offering the same checkering and built-in magwell mount. This Tungsten-colored model should appeal to IDPA competitors who are not allowed to use brass grip panels in competition. (Changing grip panels to something like aluminum is okay in IDPA, but brass is specifically banned.)
Why add weight? Weight and felt recoil are directly related, so by adding weight, a metal backstrap grip panel calms the gun down, creating a smoother-shooting, softer-kicking, more-neutrally-balanced handgun. Adding weight to the frame also reduces the tendency toward "weak wrist" malfunctions common to all polymer frame handguns. This manifests itself most often when shooting weak-hand-only.
The extra mass gives the frame a greater resistance to being pushed rearward in recoil -- helping ensure reliable cycling when the shooter can't supply full resistance due to weakness, poor form, or a too-low grip.
- absorbs some recoil (1.1 ounces added)
- lowers the center of gravity (less top-heavy)
- High-traction checkered surface (better control)
- built-in mount for TF Magwell
- IDPA compliant "non-weighted" grip panel

Excellent fitment. Definitely more grippy then the original. Would love to see a more aggressive checkering or stippling option though.
This piece looks great and really enhances the grip.

Great Could you have substituted Steel to get the weight up and still be withend the rules for IDPA? Maybe a limited run if enough interest. --- Good question! The downside of steel is that it's much slower to machine. I'll have to chat about that with my crew -- Robin Taylor
