About the Gun

The Canik TP9v2 and TP40v2 pistols are dimensionally the same as the original TP9 pistol with several improvements. The grip has been textured, the front strap straightened, the palm-swell has been extended and the trigger guard is been squared. These changes give the gun much better accessibility for a gloved hand. The accessory rail is now mil-spec and the sights have a smoother Novak style profile. The slide has a Cerakote finish. While the version 2 still has a striker status indicator at the rear of the slide, the loaded-chamber indicator on the top of the slide has been dropped.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
