I haven't Googled it yet, but my guess would be German for the timing of trigger pull... Just a guess.

This is an epithet created by Col. Jeff Cooper referring to early double action 9x19 automatic pistols like the SW 39.

He meant the imprecise movement of the trigger (first the long draw of the first double action shot, followed by the take up and creep of the second single action shot) as a "crunch" and then a "tick."

If you google Jeff Cooper there should be scads of articles on his derision over these pistols.
