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).

The SAR 357 is a revolver made by Sarsilmaz and chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge.  The handgun bears a resemblance to the classic Smith & Wesson revolvers and has several features like the Smith guns.

I had a chance to get a feel for one at the SAR Arms exhibit at the 2013 SHOT Show.  The sales staff was busy with many other customers, so I did not get a chance to draw out a lof of details about this pistol, but what I know I will share here.
