SAR Arms had a new pistol, but more importantly a new company. The days of multiple importers are over, SAR is now SAR USA. This is a subsidiary of the Turkish firearms maker, and will be handling all warranty issues for SAR pistols, regardless of who brought it into the country. This should smooth over any and all issues regarding parts availability, new models, and magazines.

Impressions & Pricing
The SAR 9 is the new pistol model for this year, which garnered much attention on Guns America when Patrick Kelley did a review back in October. I can’t say it any better than he did, so this product description will be brief. The SAR 9 looks like an HK VP9 and a Glock had a love child, with a thumb safety tossed in for good measure. And that is a good thing. The SAR 9 feels good in the hand, the ergonomics are a winner. Low bore axis, nice out of the box texture to the frame, and interchangeable back straps. The mag release is reversible, a bonus for lefties. The trigger out of the box is great, considering the price is MSRP $449.
This is an off the beaten path gun, that is worth a look. Plenty of stock is on hand, and shipping now. Look for the new SAR 9 at a dealer near you.
