In a recent press release, Sarsilmazand SAR-USA announced a partnership with UTAS-USA to import the SAR line of pistols. Why do we care? Because Salslimaz has built a really solid reputation for building the reasonably cheap but ultimately reliable SAR B6 and B6P pistols that were previously imported by EAA.
The press release was very thin on information, probably the reason that we haven’t written anything on the announcement until now. Releasing news of a merger such as this one with only a sentence describing the new partnership is nothing short of maddening.
So why should we care? Salslimaz has a pretty impressive lineup that we do not see here in the United States to include the new SAR 9 pistol that was adopted by the Turkish armed forces.
But why do I ultimately not care that much?
While the pistols may be cool, there is little to no information on them. Couple that with the world’s worse press release (I have attached it below for your enjoyment) and it is really tough to get excited about an expanded SAR lineup here in the states. Should more information become available where we can pass cool tidbits on to you about the new US lineup, I will be the first one on the keyboard.
TL;DR version – SAR pistols will be imported by a new company, they release no information other than a notification as to what they were doing and no indication as to what models will be available in the coming months.
