Sarsilmaz SAR ST10 Pistol – Turkish Duty Gun

Sarsilmaz SAR ST10 pistol

I got a chance to handle the Sarsilzmaz SAR ST10 pistol at the 2013 SHOT Show, and I was impressed by the apparent build quality and feel in the hand.  The handgun felt to be roughly the same size as my SIG P226, but a touch lighter.

The SAR ST10 pistol is a 9mm handgun with a traditional double-action/single-action trigger.  It has a manual safety that is engaged when moved into the upper position.  To fire, the shooter sweeps the safety downward.  The safety can be engaged while the gun is in double action mode (hammer down) or single action mode (hammer back).
