I recently discovered this forum and have been reading through the archive for the past couple of days. I guess it's about time for me to create an account and check in!
Northeast Texas resident here, and new Canik owner. A decent while back, I had started reading about the Walther Q5 and started to really want a decent long-slide 9mm. Research eventually led me to the Canik TP9SFX, which immediately jumped to the top of my wish list. Fast forward to Black Friday weekend when I visited the Dallas Market Hall gun show. I had gone to find a Ruger American Compact (for a CC piece, but didn't care for it as much as I had hoped).
INSTEAD, what I found was a seller with a NIB TP9SFX for sale.
Needless to say, I drooled over it for a couple of minutes, then promptly filled out the paperwork and walked out with my new toy. I don't know if it has the new heavy spring kit or not, but I do like the trigger...
I finally got to shoot it a couple of weeks ago. I fired a couple of full mags through it and noticed a couple of striker reset issues. The gun fired and the next round chambered properly, but the striker had not reset. I still have not been able to recreate this issue while dry firing, it only happens with live ammo. I removed the striker/firing pin this evening, to clean the channel, but noticed that it was extremely dry. I'll make sure it is well lubed before I take it out next and see if that helps.
I'm watching the SHOT Show rumors closely, and if Walther comes through with the Subcompact PPQ, that will be my next must-have (as I was so disappointed by the American SC) but I would love to find a deal on the Canik Elite model.

Welcome Keltex. For your reset issue, the only thing that comes to mind is the reset spring on the firing pin. But I wouldn't know what to look for. Maybe, if you take the firing pin assembly apart and look intensely at your reset spring, the problem will go away
