In today’s world of polymer-framed handguns, steel-framed pistols are considered anachronistic relics of the age of wonder nines, when increased magazine capacity compensated for archaic, hefty construction. Like salmon charging headfirst upstream, some designs have fought against the tide of polymer pistols flooding the market, challenging their dominance with a combination of old-world style, modern reliability and unparalleled accuracy.
No pistol better epitomizes this melding of eclectic features like CZ-75-derived handguns. One recent arrival is the Turkish-made Canik C100, now being imported by Tristar Arms.
