    I’m puzzled by the concept of buying a knock-off. Is the Canik superior in some way, or just cheaper?

    This is false. Canik does not make a single part for Walther.

    I did not know I was buying a knock off.

    Even if I did I like the grip better.

    It was a pleasant surprise.

    I bought my first Canik because I liked my P99 and the Canik was $250 NIB and I wanted to try it. I shot the Canik and it was nowhere near as snappy as the Walther. I got rid of my Walthers and still have a Canik. As a range toy itís fine but you have Century arms supporting it. When I thought about it Walther isnít known for being the model of customer support either. David

    @mrgunsngear you have a source? I would presume both of you have decent industry sources

    The head of marketing for Canik Turkey *not Canik USA* told me that 2 years ago at the NRA Show. I have no way to verify this since I haven't been to the plant but they do OEM lots of parts for NATO weapons systems employed by other countries---it's on the Canik Turkey site. So, it certainly wouldn't seem far off.

    I got a “100% false” from Bret Vorhees who is the Director of Product Developement at Walther Arms and the authority on such matters within the United States. Definitely two conflicting claims, but marketing is not where I would personally turn to get technical questions answered.

    Eh, it seems possible.

    Here's how I see it: Is glock going to admit to you that their profit margins on the gen 5 are BIGGER than previous generations due to cheaping out on some areas? No.

    Why would walther admit to using a somewhat controversial company to OEM parts for them.

    I’m calling BS on this, 100%.
