Century Arms has announced two new compact pistols to join the Canik handgun line, the TP9SF Elite and TP9SF Elite-S (main image). 

                 




"This is a very exciting product for us as it now puts the Canik line solidly in the concealed-carry market," said Jacob Herman, Century Arms director of business development. "The Elite was developed in response to concealed carry, law enforcement, and private security needs. These pistols are small enough to easily conceal, but large enough to be a highly effective fighting handgun."

The TP9SF Elite pistols are the first compact models released under the Canik brand. The Elite series pistols share the same features as the original TP9SF model, but with a 4.07" match grade barrel and shorter 5.27" grip making it a smaller, more concealable option while still providing 15+1 round capacity. Upgraded features include industry standard dovetail sight cuts that hold a set of Warren Tactical sights with a red fiber-optic front sight, ambidextrous slide lock, front and rear slide serrations, and a slide finished with Cerakote's Tungsten Grey finish. The TP9SF Elite-S has the same features as the standard Elite, but with the addition of a trigger stop for added security when the trigger may not be fully covered. Built to the same standards as its full-size counterparts, the Elite series has successfully passed 60,000 round endurance testing, with no major parts failures, while maintaining or exceeding NATO standards for accuracy.

Both pistols are chambered in 9x19 mm and come equipped with two magazines, a polymer holster (with both a paddle and belt attachment), interchangeable backstraps, cleaning rod, brush, and a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty. MSRP for either model is $459.99.

Rifleman Q&A: U.S. Model Of 1928 Thompson Variants

I was reading an auction catalog, and a reference was made to an American military Thompson submachine gun. It stated it was a “1928 Colt Navy overstamp, not a Savage.” The catalog made that verbiage seem important. What’s the significance of the “overstamp,” and were there other military 1928 Thompsons besides the Navy guns?
