Arson Machine, a small but growing accessory company has released their TP9SA “De-cock Block” which works to completely disengage the de-cocking mechanism found on the top of Canik TP9SA handguns. While the handgun was generally praised for its trigger and value pricing, the de-cocker kept many buyers from picking up the platform due to the belief that they could inadvertently de-cock the handgun during general manipulation.
On a double-action / single-action handgun this “feature” would not be a deal-braker (nay, many would find it a positive feature), it is detrimental to function on the single-action striker-fired TP9SA. Simply put, once de-cocked, the handgun would need the slide racked to bring it back into action again.
Canick recognized this and released the TP9SF (which I just reviewed), but what about all the TP9SA handguns already in the wild?
See the video from GY6 on the full handgun:
To keep the handgun’s unusual de-cocking system from de-cocking the de-cockable handgun, Arson Machine has produced two small inserts that basically keep the de-cocker system from depressing to de-cock the de-cockable handgun.
(Yes, I just had too much fun writing that).
The kit is available directly from Arson Machine at reasonable $15. The two inserts are black-oxide finished 304 stainless meaning they will not rust.
