Assalamoalaikum PakGunners,

Bought a new pistol yesterday after selling out my old one. I had my "Nazar" on this pistol from the very first day. It's a Turkish made handgun and the company name is Canik 55. Our chief also owns this handgun as well as its compact version the Piranha C. Its quite an underrated pistol but nevertheless, from what I've heard (From the chief) this gun performs brilliantly. The finish is excellent and the magazines are made in Italy.

Here's the company website:

www.canik55.com (http://www.canik55.com)

And here are the pictures:

(Note: I was looking for a yellow background for the pictures and well, I stumbled upon this famous flag :P)

InshAllah I will change them soon. You can put CZ-75 grips on it. But the stock grips are very comfortable as well.

And thanks for your comments. :)

Thank you everyone for the nice comments! :)

AK47: Sir I haven't come across that version so far. The only versions available were the Piranha C, Dolphin and Shark series. But I didn't see any pistol in "Silver Finish".

Rizshu I'm really sorry that I wasn't able to make the video. BUT, you can apply any pistol method of cleaning and lubricating the CF98. That's how I maintained my pistol and found all the necessary information available on the internet. Once again, I'm sorry I wasn't able to fulfill my promise. :(

Rameez: Only on the Internet. But I did see the Dolphin and Shark series in person at Buksh Elahi.

Denovo: Sir, there's no technique really. Just instinct! I remember you asked me something like this on my CF98 thread as well. Sorry that I never answered your question. :( I don't own a fancy camera, just a Point and shoot 10MP FUJIFILM. The idea is to make the very best out of your lens. No matter what the quality of lens is. See example at the end of this post.

BUT here are some techniques of my own:

1. Always make sure that your pictures have one consistent background. For example, in this case, the yellow flag is only visible as the background in all the pictures (Except for the last one)

2. Light depends. Ideally, I'd use natural sun light to shoot but at night, you can use your camera's flash. But remember, if you're going to use yellow light, make sure you have a LOT of it because it tends to smudge the pixels.

3. Always take a LOT of pictures using your own technique of shooting. And obviously, select the very best out of the whole lot. This improves the chances of taking good shots.

4. Aim low, and try to keep the background consistent as well. While aiming low, play around with different angles. While aiming low, make sure you're camera is on Macro mode (Close up).

5. Objects: Personally, I'd prefer all the items in a picture aligned to some direction. In easy words, everything should follow a straight angle.

6. I seriously don't know what I'm talking about :D

EXAMPLE About camera lens:

Here are some examples from my photography collection. The point I want to prove is that even with a low quality lens, one can get amazing results if used properly.

N73 3.2 MP: http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v156/78/92/505654167/n505654167_138268_7131.jpg Perfect example of low shot with high aim.

N95 5MP: http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v150/78/92/505654167/n505654167_158573_558.jpg

And this shot won an Amature photography competition in Toronto. Shot was taken by an XTI rebel. http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v141/78/92/505654167/n505654167_127113_87.jpg

Sorry for hijacking my own thread, but this reply to Denovo was long due. :)

i think i would also prefer to go for canikk as my next purchase as i can see the all desired features in it, magazine capacity is good and even very cool for CC. good purchase :) i think its around 37K.

regards

Sohail bro, this pistol is a real beauty. I tried searching for this in the Lucky Star area, but a lot of shops I went to asked for Canik the showed me the KANUNI instead. Can u pls give me the DEALERS NAME who carries Canik 55 in Lucky Star?. Which shop will give this beauty for 37k?. I think its a great price, just a little more than the CF, but with a fantastic look and feel.

Awaiting yr reply,
Thnx

Thread cleaned.

I thought the pictures were taken on a PARA shopping bag, they are the same yellow :lol:

@All I think it would be in better taste if we exclude any religious or political objects from the pictures that we share with our friends here. Please keep on topic.

For a detailed discussion and pictures on the Canik 55 read this: http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=2687
