Tristar :)

I have been wanting a CZ75, its my #3 bucket list firearm but have not been able to find a new one locally, I do not purchase firearms online and have to deal with the headaches off returning it if something is wrong. I have see some great reviews on the CZ clones coming out of Turkey. Well I was very bad, went by Academy Sports and could not make a decision, both were marked down $50, so I purchased one C-100 in .40 S&W and one T-120 in 9mm. HOLY SMOKES!!! these guns are amazing! got them all clean and lubed, waiting for a good range day

You will love those pistols. I have the C 100 also, and I can't see any difference at all between it and the CZ. Congrats.

I have Canik Shark C and my wife has the same pistol in the Tristar T100. I also have the P120. They are my favorite firearm I've owned. Easy on the hand and accurate and smooth. One is on my hip at all time. It nice to have pistols you can get parts and accessories with out feeling like you got raped.

CZ is one of the ONLY guns I will buy online. We own 7 now. Our son has 3. NONE had anything whatsoever wrong with them. All run like champs and are accurate as hell. UNLIKE SOME manufacturers who will go UN NAMED,, I think CZ is far to picky with their quality control. Which is why I will keep buying them.

That C100 looks pretty much just like my EDC,, a CZ PCR, which I absolutely love.

Glad this new brand you found is working out so far. Be interested for a range report.

Congrats! I'm not familiar with the brand but the full size one looks like my CZ75B.
Both look solidly built and the compact is pretty.

They are well built Turkish clones of the CZ series.

I carried the C100 for abiut a year and enjoyed shooting it. Flawless. My son borrowed it to take a tactical pistol course since I had 4 mags(2 of which were CZ compact), liked it so much I gave it to him. I decided to get the Compact, but when I looked and handle it, I thought Imight as well get another c100.

Finally took the C100 to the range last night. This is one sweet shooting pistol, smooth trigger, light recoil and very accurate! 100 rounds of FMJ's and not one issue

I have an Tristar (Canik) L120 that I absolutely love. (The L120 is basically a CZ75B clone with an alloy frame).

I've added VZ Grips and will eventually add some Cajun Gun Works Parts but even out-of-the-box these guns are great and an outstanding value.

Here's a photo of mine...

Beautiful pistols. I like their style a lot. A friend let me shoot his CZ 75 and have nothing but good to say. The Tristar looks just as sharp.

Those grips really set that gun off. I will have to research a set for mine

I had read were tristar had some issues with the recoil springs not being strong enough on their 40 s&w's, damaging the slide lock. They must have made a change on this tank! I takes all my hand strength to rack this slide
