Introduced in 2019, the TP9 Elite SC pistol was Canik’s first subcompact version in the TP9 pistol series. The Elite subcompact is an excellent combination of size and capacity with a 3.6-inch barrel and double-stack magazine capacity of 12+1 or 15+1 (with extended baseplate).
The Elite SC is also factory equipped with an optic cutaway, allowing the shooter to add a red dot sight or RMR optic sight. The Canik engineers designed the optic mount to ride lower than the bore axis to allow the red dot and factory sights to co-witness without the sights being unnecessarily high. The factory sights are day/night models for an optimal low-light sight picture.
In addition, Canik ships the TP9 Elite SC models with a Kydex holster that can be worn in either IWB or OWB positions.
Given the smaller size of the SC frame, the TP9 Elite SC is ideal for carrying concealed with an IWB holster. Most of the inside the waistband holsters that we offer for the Elite SC mount to the belt using a clip or snap, and all are molded specifically to the Elite SC. This hand molding offers excellent retention without a thumb break or retention strap, however, a retention strap can be added as well.
However, if the shooter mounts a red dot optic on the top of the side, not every IWB holster made for this specific handgun model will fit. Most leather holster models will require an optic cut out to accommodate the red dot optic.
We carry several comfortable leather concealment holster models for the Canik TP9 Elite SC pistol with or without a red dot or RMR optic mounted. Any of the IWB gun holsters displayed below are available in a version to fit the Elite SC with or without a red dot mounted. In addition, every holster model is available in a right handed or left handed version.
Since the Elite SC is also equipped with an integrated accessory rail, the pistol is a popular platform for the addition of a tactical light. Mounting a pistol light on the Elite SC has several potential benefits, but it also may cause an issue finding a holster that fits.
Any of the holster models listed below are available in versions to fit several of the more popular pistol light makers and models. In addition, most holsters shown below can also be configured to fit a TP9 Elite SC with both a light and red dot optic mounted.
