[4 of 5 Stars!]Very nice gun for the money. For those who don't know this gun is made in Turkey by a company called Canik55. I believe it is the shark-c model as sold by Canik. Tristar imports them and calls it the T-100. I've seen canik55 shark-c's selling for over 400 dollars so this gun for 340 plus tax is a pretty good deal.
This gun is a clone of the CZ75 platform and cosmetically resembles a baby eagle (jericho 941) compact (which is itself a clone mechanically of the CZ 75 platform). The double action pull is pretty heavy but pretty smooth after the initial effort. The single action pull is pretty nice, much better than would be expected for a gun in this price range. The grip is a little beefy and could be a problem for those with medium to small size hands especially if firing it in double action mode.
For those looking for a decocker, this gun does not have one. It can be carried cocked and locked of course and the safety does have a very positive feel. The gun shoots very well, it has a standard 3 dot sight system and mine shot pretty close to point of aim. The sights are not adjustable (well I guess the rear could be adjusted for windage by drifting it). The operation of the gun is very tight and smooth. I was very impressed with the workmanship on this gun considering the price and even though the frame is a lighter steel alloy and the gun is a compact with app 3 inch barrel, the gun shot with little recoil and felt very nice while shooting it.
I'd recommend this gun to anyone who is a fan of the CZ75 or Tanfoglio platforms and who wants a compact version. It came with two 15 round mags that work just fine.
I can't give it a full 5 stars because the finish. Although the black finish looks just fine and seems pretty uniform all over the gun, there's a spot on the frame where the slide rides that appears to be flaking off a bit. I'm not too concerned about it because there's bound to be some wear there anyway, but if it gets any worse I will have to contact Tri-Star about it. Also, the stock grips are pretty cheap looking and feeling and I plan on upgrading with some other grips. Other than that, I love the gun. It will be going to the range with me a lot.

[5 of 5 Stars!]I am so thoroughly satisfied with Buds. They will receive my business from this point on. I've already raved about Buds to my buds. I couldn't be happier. If your local gunshop doesnt have what youre looking for, go through buds. 10/10 they made a customer for life.Show More Reviews...
