My 2nd Canik/ Tri-Star full sized pistol. very good gun for the money. Easily modified into greatness with a little help from Cajun Gunworks... My only issue with the Shark was that the alloy frame is so so light, the compensated barrel can't even make up for the lightness of the gun. The P-120 or the S-120 are a little better shooters because of this.... in my opinion. But still, great guns for the money...

Overall construction is excellent. The smoothest slide pistol i own. Takedown is a breeze on this gun. A bit of a heavy trigger pull, nothing that a new cz mainspring cant fix. The grips are terrible, replaced them with hogue wrap arounds. The gun was caked in oil from the factory so a good cleaning was required but i do that with all my new guns. The mags and speed loader are of excellent quality although i never use speed loaders the fact that a 350 dollar gun came with 2 17 rnd mags and a speed loader was a great deal. The finish is very nice zero blemishes on the gun. This is my first purchase from buds and will not be my last. Thanks buds.

The Shark Fc was delivered in a timely fashion from Bud's. The transaction was easy, painless and way cheaper than buying local. The gun shoots straight and is a joy to shoot after my adjustments. Sights came in off as heck! I know the other reviews rant and rave about the quality but I give Canik a fail. The slide serrations were partially milled, the sight was glued in, the finish was blemished from the factory and the slide was touched up with touch up paint! I bought this as a part of my collection where i felt i had other options but with the good reviews i took a leap of faith.......! FAIL

Love the look and feel of this 9mm. Shoots a bit low, but it's easy enough to compensate for. I've put a few hundred rounds through it already with zero issues and very nice & tight grouping.

First Impressions:
The finish is excellent both inside and out, take down was a bit more difficult than expected but that cleared up quickly, possibly due to burrs on the slide rails from factory. Sights are adequate, simple 3 dot with white paint despite the manual claiming Tritium. Trigger is quite nice for factory, smooth pull with a very clear reset point. Controls are easy to use but a bit stiff. It is also considerably lighter weight than its CZ cousin due to the alloy frame and thinner barrel. Grips are unexceptional plastic panels with little grippiness. As usual the factory grease smells abominable.

Actually shooting:
The Shark points just as nicely as any CZ clone, and excels at point shooting. The light weight and ported barrel cause it to push harder into the hand than the steel framed CZ, getting used to the more rearward recoil compared to a non-ported barrel will take me some time to adapt to. Brass cased and steel cased ammunition were fired without issue and accuracy seemed on par with the CZ SP01. Due to the lighter weight and being unaccustomed to the style of recoil, follow up shots were slower with the Shark than the SP01, but this should be surmountable with practice.

Weak points (so far):
- Me.
- The standard sights are adequate but night sights are a likely upgrade
- The grips - factory grips on this gun are the weakest part of the package, swapping them out for a sturdier and grippier option is a priority
- Porting means more cleaning
- The trigger could be lighter and have less travel

Comparison to the CZ SP01:
- The Shark is noticeably lighter at 27oz vs the SP01 Tactical at 38.4oz, better for carry but not as pleasant to shoot.
- The Porting changes how the gun recoils so that is another thing to adapt to but may pay off with practice.
- The porting also means you will have more cleanup than a sealed barrel.
- The CZ has 18 round magazines standard while the Canik comes with 15 rounders, both brands come with MecGar mags from the factory.
- The SP01 tactical comes with TruDot night sights, the Canik has white painted 3 dot sights. Although shooting in daylight they are functionally the same.
- Shot to shot accuracy was pretty much indistinguishable, except in rapid fire where the heavier SP01 pulls ahead.
- Controls are pretty much identical, the Canik%uFFFD%uFFFDs being newer are a bit stiffer.
- The scale pattern in the Canik%uFFFD%uFFFDs slide feels grippier than the vertical serrations in the SP01 slide, but your mileage may vary
- Both guns fired brass ammunition without issue, the CZ did hiccup on a steel round that turned out to have a burr on the case. Hooray Tula quality control.
- The SP01 has very solid highly textured rubberized grips, the Canik has cheap feeling plastic grips with minimal texture and a bit of flex. CZ wins here easily.
- Both have a rail for mounting lights and whatnot
- Cost: Canik $370 SP01 $640

Overall the CZ is the nicer gun with better from the factory features, but the difference is not huge. At least thus far.

Magazines = 100% both ways (MecGar)
Slides = Canik fits works on the SP01 frame. It functions well in double action, but single action is problematic. CZ slide does not fit on Canik frame.
Barrels= The Canik's ported barrel is narrower than the CZ non-ported barrel so neither work as drop in replacements. It looks like the CZ barrel would work in the Canik frame if the pinned barrel bushing was removed.
