Canik TP9SFx is often crowned as one of the best budget pistols you can buy. And I agree with that sentiment as well. While the gun doesn’t need any changes or upgrades per say, it doesn’t hurt to improve the performance of the gun.
One of the things that improves the performance of a gun is the sight. While it’s common knowledge that Canik TP9SFx supports red dots, the question still remains. What red dots fit Canik TP9SFx? Only red dots or holographic sights as well?
Like you, I also want the best Canik TP9. Don’t worry, I got you covered on the optics end at least. Without further ado, let’s find some TP9SFx sights.
How To Choose a Red Dot For Canik Tp9sfx?
Now that you know what red dot fits the Canik and what they are, how do you choose one from the list to use with your gun? Here are a couple of things that might help you in the decision making.
The first thing that you will need to decide on is how much money you are willing to spend. If you are not feeling like spending a lot of money and getting the Vortex Razor for example, you can get something cheaper as well.
Just because Burris FastFire III is the cheapest among them doesn’t mean it’s not good. The FF3 with TP9SFx is an incredible combination.
The next thing you need to make sure is what you want from the optic and what kind of reticle you want. Holosun has a circle dot around the small red dot and other brands use small or large red dots. So, depending on what you want, your decision will vary.
