    I don't have anything constructive to contribute but kinda like the idea of "Made in the USA" and guaranteed forever.

    When looking at a competition pistol, I'd also consider the availability of holsters, readily available magazines, etc. I suspect there's a reason that I've never seen a Canik at a match.

    Between these two go with the Canik, far more gun for the money. You can run production or carry optics as it already has the optic plate cut out. You would have to go with the CORE series M&P for a better comparison. The Canik also has a better mag release button that comes with different size adapters so you can customize the reach.

    Mags are readily available. A fellow just up the road from you is putting out some nice kydex competition retention holsters.

    More and more are showing up at uspsa matches.

    I have the Canik SF model. I love it. Mags and mag release are great. Shoot it more than my Glocks. My shooting partner has two in his gun collection.

    I think I'm going to get a TriStar P120 and convert it to SAO. It will be a cheaper sp01. Heard nothing but good about them.

    SA will take you out of production and CO and put you into Limited Minor. Wouldn't recommend that!

    The SFX is production and CO ready out of the box isn't it?

    I've really been kicking around picking up one of these to play with. Leaving it DA/SA so I can maintain my Production mediocrity and still be in contention for cheapest guy out there. Should have a reimbursement coming soon, might make it happen then.

    I'm still thinking of what to get. I'm waiting to see what my tax lady tells me. I'm not supposed to owe anything but we shall see......
