We got a batch of "bad" red parts... The red is a fiery red that doesn't match our existing red color.
Part works just fine but it just won't match our other red parts. Still qualifies for our lifetime warranty against breaking!
Solid aluminum "backstrap" grip panel for the Canik TP9SF Elite/Elite Combat/Elite Executive
- High-traction checkered surface (better control)
- built-in mount for TF Magwell
- slight increase in weight (1.3 ounces)
Weight and felt recoil are directly related, so by adding weight, our metal backstraps calm 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.
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. The metal backstrap concept descends directly from our famous "Seattle Slug" magazine guide, which adds 3.5 ounces of weight to the Gen. 2/3 Glock 17. That concept worked so well, it was eventually banned BY NAME in both USPSA and IDPA.
NOTE: We cannot ship this part internationally without special permits.
