What Does “RIVAL” Mean
And What is the Innovative Technology behind it?
When it came to naming the CANiK®️ competition pistol, the challenge was to find a name that defined the goal we had when creating the firearm itself. The goal was simple, this platform had to be equal to or better than anything used in the world of competitive sports shooting, giving the user a solid advantage to win! With this in mind, the name was soon apparent, this firearm was undoubtedly the “RIVAL”.
No other name could express the design as clearly, a superior model that can challenge all other pistols has now entered the stage. With features specifically designed to edge out the competitors like an improved beavertail, aggressive front slide serrations, deeper trigger guard angle, a new holster fit-and-lock (HFL) feature, and the new self-flared mag well frame design.
With the new frame design equipped with the adjustable rear sight and a fibre optic front sight set, the manoeuvrability and target acquisition of the pistol is drastically increased. The SFx RIVAL®️feautures a modular frame which allows for easy disassembly of the firearm. With this design, the user can disassemble his out of the box pistol down to its smallest parts and then reassemble it using just the CANiK punch tool. CANiK®️ continues to use the world’s most advanced technology in trigger design to develop the SFx RIVAL®️’s diamond-cut, 90° angle, lightened aluminum trigger which along with shortened preset and reset distance increases speed and accuracy.
In addition to all these technical improvements, aesthetic concerns were also taken into account in the design of RIVAL: With a one of a kind coating color named Canik Rival Grey, created by Cerakote®️ exclusively for CANiK®️ applied to the frame and slide and H122 gold on the trigger, magazine release catch, magazine base plate, mag-well, and slide stop lever, this firearm is sure to be a show stopper on any range.
With these features and its 127 mm barrel, the SFx RIVAL®️ can participate in competitions organized by IDPA, IPSC and USPSA without any restrictions.
