Editors’ Picks 2019: EAA Girsan MC28SA-T

posted on March 22, 2019

European American Armory is importing a new line of polymer-frame, semi-automatic striker-fired pistols from Girsan of Turkey. Fitted with a 4.25" barrel with an overall length of 7.6" and a height of 6.75", the 29-oz., 9 mm Luger MC28SA-T is feature-packed for a bargain pistol, as it comes standard with a cocking indicator, a loaded-chamber indicator, three backstraps, a reversible magazine release, a trigger blade safety and factory-installed “Red Dot Carry Optics.” That’s right, for an MSRP of $466, the slide’s top is cut and the red dot is part of the deal. The optic-equipped gun has chevron-shaped lightening cuts in the slide’s front. If you are not riding the red-dot wave, the base gun can be had in black, two-tone or flat dark earth with conventional, adjustable three-dot sights and no lightening cuts for $367 to $390, depending on the finish. eaacorp.com
