Canik USA to Import Canik 55 Pistol

26 Jul

Last week I blogged about the Turkish made Canik 55 pistol which resembles the CZ 75. Well I discovered that a company called Canik-USA has been formed to be the exclusive US distributor for the pistol, designated as the model .

MSRP on the base model is $485.00 so the street price should be pretty attractive.
