Canik (pronounced Janik) are made in Turkey are imported by Tristar.

On a personal note, it is nice to see a handgun with a safety and double action / single action. Over the past few decades there has been a gradual trend where striker-fired handguns overtook hammer-fired in popularity. In an era when everything seems to be striker fired, the hammer design reminds of the 1980s and 1990s when just about everything (besides Glock) had a hammer.

As of May 22, 2017 prices for the for the P100 and C100 are less than $400. For that price, why not pick one up?
