Here is what Canik has to say about their new Canik Elite Subcompact.
TP9 Sub Elite devoloped to be the first sub-compact version of TP Series Pistols with its .360 inch barrel. TP9 Sub Elite offers the same features as the standart models and designed to be snag-free for better concealment and faster draw. It also offers the best features needed on a sub-compact pistol for self-defense; it is equipped with double stack magazine, front serrations on the slide, day/night options all with feature of co-witnessing with Micro Red-Dot. Concealed carry holster and spare magazine with finger rest is standart in the package together with magazine loader and cleaning kit.
Century Arms National Marketing Director Adam Ruonala spoke about the design philosophy behind the Canik Elite SC.
“The demand for a reliable, double stacked, concealable handgun, at a price point the blue-collar American could afford without sacrificing quality or comfort was a challenge the Canik team accepted head-on! We are proud to say that the TP9 Elite SC is exactly that, a superior handgun.
“This firearm was designed with the sole intent of being an everyday carry for everyone from the Law Enforcement officer as a backup, to the private citizen who wants the peace of mind in knowing the capacity and functionality of the pistol is top of the line.”

Smith just launched similar product with co witnessed sights for the red dot AND thumb safety.Once again Canik is slow to the table as are other manufacturers. I am 63 and a thumb safety is non negotiable (safer holstering).
I know that this is subjective but many folks brought up on 1911 find the thumb safety no problem and does not slow the draw unlike a level 3 holster. I have tried the Caniks and othersise they are great pistols and very accurate.I
