Canik 55 TP-9

     Notes: Though Canik 55 is slowly up-and-coming, the TP-9 is often called a “no-name pistol.”  Appearing very much like the Walther P-99, many Turkish pistols are in fact copies or near-copies of other pistols.  The TP-9 has a modern polymer frame, with a magazine release that many see as superior to that of the P-99.  The magazine capacity is just this side of huge, larger than many competing pistols; the factory magazines have a polymer basepad. (Despite the design, the magazines are proprietary and not interchangeable with the P-99.)  The mechanism is unusual; it is striker-fired, but internally behaves very much like a DA/SA firearm, including an internal hammer.  The trigger takes some getting used to; a light tug has no pull weight for the first two-thirds of the pull, then engages at that point with a 5-pound pull weight.  If the decocker is engaged, the trigger will remain forward and the pull weight will be 10 pounds.  The TP-9 has a cocking and chamber loaded indicator, but has no manual safety.  Two additional backstraps are available for the TP-9. Sights are of the 3-Dot type.  The pistol is sold with an injection-molded holster similar to the Blackhawk Serpa. Finishes include black, desert tan, and either of those two with a nickel-plated slide.

Girsan Yavuz-16

     Notes:  This pistol, recently put on the market by the Girsan company (originally called the Yavuz company, hence the name), is very derivative of the Beretta M-92FS pistol, though with several differences both internal and external.  It is designed for civilian, military, and police use, and is in fact in use by certain units of the Turkish military and police.

     The Yavuz-16 uses sort of an amalgamation of the Beretta M-92FS operation and that of the Walther P-38.  The basic version, the Regard,  is externally very similar to the M-92FS, but has a cut-out forward slide that exposes part of the barrel and (when the slide reciprocates) the ejection port.  The Regard also has an external extractor.  The ejection port is lowered, and this along with the strong external extractor increase reliability.  The Regard has an exposed hammer with a Commander-type loop shape.  The trigger is double-action, and the safety/slide catch/decocker lever is ambidextrous.  The magazine release is a button type at the base of the trigger guard.  Barrel length is just short of 5 inches, and the sights are low-profile combat sights.

     Slightly smaller is the Compact; this version uses a 4.33-inch barrel, but a nearly full-sized frame.  The hammer is nearly shrouded, but exposed enough to allow the Compact to be thumb-cocked.  The forward slide is also fully enclosed instead of open like that of the Regard.  The Bora is even smaller, with a 4.17-inch barrel and somewhat lower-profile sights, though its construction is such that it is actually the heaviest of the Yavuz-16 series.  It is otherwise identical to the Compact.  The Bora Light has lighter construction and more rounded and smoothed lines, but is otherwise identical to the Bora; in fact, it fires using the same stats as the Bora.  The Bora Light is essentially a Bora that has been dehorned for concealed carry.

MKE

     Notes: These are Turkish pistols based on the Walther PP.  They are not license-produced, but it is not known where the Turks got the plans for the PP they based the MKEs on.  There are only minor differences between the PP and the MKE, such as the finish of the plastic grip plates and the shape of the finger rest.

Sarsilmaz CM-9

     Notes: The CM-9 (Combat Master, 9mm) is a polymer-framed pistol designed for concealed carry and hard combat.  It comes in two versions, a Commander-sized pistol with a 4.5-inch barrel and a compact model with a 3.8-inch barrel.  The polymer frame has a MIL-STD-1913 rail molded into the dust cover.  The trigger is double action, with a slide-mounted decocker, a slide stop, and a manual safety (also on the frame), and a passive trigger safety.  (Trigger pull length is unfortunately a bit long.) Standard finish is matte black, but it also available with a satin silver finish for its steel slide.  The hammer is a loop-type, low-profile hammer, and the sights are of the 3-dot type.

Sarsilmaz Gune 2000

     Notes: This pistol, based on the Italian Tanfoglio Force 99, is manufactured by Sarsilmaz in Turkey under license.  Sarsilmaz has made few changes to the original design, adding extra cocking grooves to the front of the slide and adding an automatic firing pin safety.  Sarsilmaz also manufactures this pistol in only one caliber.  Sights are of the 3-dot type. Otherwise, it is basically the same polymer-frame pistol that the Tanfoglio Force 99 is.

     A similar pistol, the V-8 Vatos, has a lightweight aluminum frame.  The design is somewhat simplified over the basic Force 99/CZ-75, and a MIL-STD-1913 rail is under the dust cover.

Sarsilmaz K2

     Notes: The K2 is a Commander-sized high-capacity pistol.  A double-action pistol, the K2 has a slide-mounted decocker as well as a manual safety.  The trigger guard is squared for two-handed use, and the barrel length is slightly more than 4.5 inches.  Construction is of forged steel, with a matte black finish and checkered plastic grip plates. The frontstrap and backstrap are also checkered. Sights are of the 3-dot type.  It has a MIL-STD-1913 rail under the dust cover.  A compact version, the K2C, has a barrel length of about 3.7 inches, but uses the same high-capacity magazines. Several different K2s are available (based on look): the basic black, One with a polished stainless steel slide and frame, one with a matte stainless steel slide and frame, one with a matte stainless steel frame (and engravings on the slide and frame, and gold-plated controls, and engraved rosewood grip plates), one with gold-plated frame and slide, and one with a frame and slide called “Titan Black), personally labeled with the name of the shooter, and polished stainless steel grip plates.

     Versions of both of these weapons are available for jurisdictions that restrict magazine capacity.  These pistols, called the K-10 and K-10C, use 10-round magazines and cannot use the 15-round magazines of the K2 and K2C.  They are not available in .45 ACP.  Subtract $2 from the price of these pistols.

Sarsilmaz K12

     Notes: The K12 is a race gun – a pistol designed to be finely-balanced, offer greater accuracy, and more controllability than a normal pistol of a given caliber.  The K12 accomplishes the first by careful weighting, the second with a long 5.1-inch match-quality barrel, and the third with the addition of a compact muzzle brake.  The frame and slide are of matte stainless steel, and the frontstrap and backstrap are checkered.  The beavertail is undercut, as is the trigger guard, making the K12 sit lower in the hand.  The trigger guard is enlarged and squared off, with the front of the trigger guard serrated. The trigger itself is adjustable for pull weight. The rear sight is micrometer adjustable and the front sight dovetailed in.  A Commander-type hammer is used.

Sarsilmaz Kilinc 2000

     Notes: The Kilinc 2000 is considered one of the “best pistols you’ve never heard of” by one author; it is known for its excellent finish, and the quality of workmanship and fit of the parts.  The Kilinc 2000 Premium is the full-sized model; it is built of chrome-molybdenum steel or stainless steel, and come is a myriad of finishes, from blued to engraved and gold-plated.  The guide rails run the whole length of the slide, and extra pressure grooves have been added.  The back of the grip has a long beavertail for extra comfort and to stop “hammer bite.”  The sights are three-dot.

     The Kilinc 2000 Light is a version that is somewhat more lightly-built (but nonetheless excellent workmanship).  The grip is a bit shorter, and an automatic firing pin safety has been added. 

     The Hancer is a compact version of the Kilinc 2000; it is smaller by almost 20 millimeters, yet the barrel is almost the same length.  Sarsilmaz is said to have had assistance from the Czechs in the development of the Hancer.

     Twilight 2000 Notes:   None of these pistols exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Sarsilmaz B6

     Notes: The B6 is a modernized version of the CZ-75.  The B6 is very much like the CZ-75; it has DA/SA operation, and the controls are in the same place and just about the same shape and size, though they have a more ergonomic shape and position.  The controls are not ambidextrous, though, and the manual safety is a bit stiff. The frame is polymer and the slide is steel (generally alloyed light steel).  The B6 is much lighter than the CZ-75.  Sights are of the 3-dot type.  Disassembly and reassembly are straightforward and simple.  Fit and finish are excellent.  Form is almost simplified; the grip is textured polymer, and the trigger is flat without any checkering.  The hammer is good-sized and likewise not textured in any way.  Single Action trigger pull weight is so light that many shooters find themselves firing before they are really ready; it takes some getting used to.  The trigger reset is likewise fast and crisp.  Most B6’s are black; however, this more a customer preference than part of the design; Sarsilmaz will finish its pistols in Matte Black, Coyote Brown, Desert Yellow, Olive Green, or Military Khaki. The slides can be had in Matte Black, Matte Stainless, or Two-Tone.

     An unusual criticism is the font size of the lettering on the frame and slide, and some say that the B6 looks more like a toy or airsoft weapon than a real pistol.  However, the B6 will digest virtually any ammunition, and the B6 rests naturally in the hand.

     The B6P was the initial product release, available only in black. Barrel length is 4.5 inches; a compact version with a 3.8-inch barrel is also available.  Though it was used to introduce the B6 to the market, it is a fully-operational pistol, though this one was available only in matte black.

     The B6 was the first “official” product release; it can, in fact, be mistaken for a CZ-75 at first, as the B6 is a derivation of the CZ-75.  It has a DA/SA trigger action. The barrel is finished in white chrome and the slide can be had in two-tone stainless steel/matte black. Sights are fixed within dovetails. The B6 has a 4.57-inch barrel.

     The B6C is the compact form of the B6, and also chambered for a wider variety of calibers.  9mm Parabellum B6Cs have 3.9-inch barrels, while the rest have 3.55-inch barrels.

Sarsilmaz P6

     Notes: This pocket pistol has an uncanny similarity to the Browning Baby. The materials are different (Sarsilmaz calls it “alloyed forged steel”) and the hammer is concealed, the trigger guard is a bit bigger, and the manual safety is in a different place but…on the whole, it looks like another copy of the Browning Baby.

Sarsilmaz P8

     Notes: This is the luxury pistol of the Sarsilmaz line, worth (IRL) 3-10 times the game price below.  The P8 has ambidextrous controls, a squared-off trigger guard, and has an adjustable rear sight and a dovetailed-in front sight.  There are two basic types of P8: the P8L with a 4.6-inch barrel, and the P8S, with a 3.8-inch barrel.  Both have ported slides and barrels and double-action operation.  The barrels are match-quality and have match bushings. The standard P8L and P8S have a Matte Stainless frame with rubber wrap-around grips.  The Black versions are – well, finished in matte black, with the same grips.  For a good-looking pistol, you take the Gold/Stainless version, which has a Matte Stainless frame with engraving on the slide and frame, and gold-plated controls and trigger.  For this version, the grips plates are of smooth rosewood.

Sarsilmaz ST9

     Notes: A mix of old and new, the ST9 is a modern pistol using modern materials, but with traditional form and shaping and methods.  The ST9 was designed partly to explore other calibers.  It is basically an updated B6, built with a number of improvements and tweaks.  The frame of the ST9 can support three different-caliber slides, barrels, and internal parts. Controls are completely ambidextrous, and the ST9 has both a loaded chamber indicator and a striker status indicator (the ST9 is striker-fired). Three different backstraps can used on the frame to suit different hand sizes.  Barrels are of stainless steel, and 4.5 inches long. Trigger guards are squared off, enlarged, and serrated in the front.

The ST120 uses a 4.4-inch barrel.

TISAS Kanuni

     Notes: One of the current Turkish military pistols, the Kanuni is also used by airport police and some private security agencies in Turkey.  It has been manufactured since 1998, and unlike most Turkish firearms designs, the Kanuni is a more-or-less original design and not simply a modified copy of another pistol.  The Kanuni uses a short-recoil locked breech system with a modified Browning locking system.  The Kanuni has a double-action trigger with a slide-mounted safety/slide lock, as well as an automatic firing pin safety.  The Kanuni 16 is the original design; the Kanuni S is a newer modification of the Kanuni with a shortened dust cover and a slightly lightened frame, and it is a little lighter than the Kanuni S.  The sights for both are fixed, but the rear sight is dovetailed and can be exchanged for an alternate rear sight if desired.

TISAS Zigana

     Notes: Like the Kanuni, the Zigana is one of the current Turkish military pistols, as well as being favored by several Turkish private security agencies.  Like the Kanuni, it is an original design, not derivative of some other pistol.  There are currently three versions of the Zigana. The Zigana M16, introduced in 2001, is the original design, and has a 126mm barrel and a short dust cover.  The Zigana T is a slightly longer version, with a 130mm barrel, a heavier slide, and a longer dust cover.  The Zigana Sport is similar to the Zigana T, but has a trigger adjustable for pull weight, different sights (though still fixed), a better-quality barrel, and is somewhat heavier.  The Zigana K is a compact version with a 103mm barrel and a shortened version of the heavy slide employed by the Zigana T.  The Zigana F is in between the Zigana M16 and Zigana K in size, with a 117mm barrel.  The Zigana C45 is similar to the Zigana F in size, with a 119mm barrel, but is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge.

     All Ziganas use an operation similar to that of the Kanuni (but updated), have double-action triggers, slide-mounted safety/slide locks, automatic firing pin safeties, and fixed three-dot-type sights.

     The Fatih 13 is essentially the same pistol as the Zigana, with the same operation – but built as compact pistols in smaller calibers.  The Fatih 13-32 is chambered for .32 ACP, while the Fatih 13-380 is chambered for .380 ACP.  Both use a smaller frame than the Zigana, but of a similar design, and have a 100mm barrel.

TISAS ZIG M/1911

     Notes: Like so many companies worldwide, TISAS makes it’s own iteration of the M-1911A1 pistol.  The ZIG M/1911 is a very basic sort of 1911 clone, though the sights are of higher profile, as Turkish troops equipped with the M-1911A1 after World War 2 (like many troops who used the M-1911A1) felt that the sights of the original M-1911A1 were too small, especially in quick-shooting situations.  The ZIG M/1911 otherwise looks like a standard World War 2-type M-1911A1, with a blued finish and checkered plastic grip plates, and a 5-inch barrel.
