CANiK Secures Pistol of the Year Award in the United States

At The Industry Choice Awards - ICA 2023, a prestigious honor within the US firearms industry, CANiK secured the Pistol of the Year award for the SFx RIVAL-S.

For the second consecutive time within the last seven years and the fifth time overall, the company has secured the Pistol of the Year award at the ICA, an event often likened to the Oscars of the firearm industry.

CANiK, a prominent global light weapons manufacturer under Samsun Yurt Savunma (SYS), achieved the Pistol of the Year distinction with TP9 SFx in 2017, TP9 ELITE COMBAT in 2019, TP9 ELITE SC in 2020, and SFx RIVAL in 2022.


SFx RIVAL-S features a steel frame construction, chambered in 9x19 mm, and is outfitted with a 90° lightweight aluminum flat trigger. This configuration facilitates rapid and accurate firing while mitigating recoil thanks to its strengthened frame.

With a weight of 1185 grams and dimensions of 205.5 mm in length, 127 mm in barrel, and 145 mm in height, SFx RIVAL-S shares a width of 36 mm with SFx RIVAL.

SFx RIVAL-S made its inaugural appearance by CANİK at the "Hunting and Shooting Exhibition SHOT Show," hosted in Las Vegas, USA, from January 17 to 20, 2023.
