    Sarsilmaz Silah Sanayi A.S. showed its SAR 109 submachine gun at the IWA Outdoor Classics show in Germany. The SMG is chambered in 9mm, and the company claims it “outclasses [the] MP5.”

    The SAR 109 uses a blowback action and takes Colt 9mm magazines.


    • caliber: 9mm
    • length (folded): 25.2″
    • length (extended): 29.1″
    • barrel length: 8.7″
    • twist rate: 1:10″
    • weight (unloaded): 5 pounds (0.36 stone)
    • rate of fire: 900-1000 rpm

    A semi-automatic version of the gun, the TE54, is being made for the civilian market. Both versions of the gun are based on the company’s SAR 223 assault rifle.
