SAR USA, which carries firearms manufactured by Sarsilmaz of Turkey, has released its SAR9, a 17-plus-one-capacity 9 mm Luger pistol with a polymer frame and advanced features similar to those found on more expensive European brands. The company claims to have torture-tested the pistol to extreme limits in its state-of-the-art factory by subjecting it to: temperature ranges from -50° F to 130° F, salt, rain, solar radiation, high altitude, fouling, drop tests and 150,000 rounds of live fire. The 27-oz., 4.4"-barreled pistol has bilateral safety levers, a reversible magazine release and a trigger blade safety, making it usable by either right- or left-handed shooters. Three sizes of interchangeable backstraps and side panels adapt its grip to a wide variety of hand sizes, while front and rear cocking serrations and a pull-down slide release facilitate easy loading/press-checks and maintenance, respectively. sarusa.com
