New Open pistol from Bul Armory – The SAS II BULLESTEROS

    It’s not often that TFB writes about BUL Armory (Israel), but they make some really good looking pistols.

    Their brand new SAS II BULLESTEROS (wordplay as the IPSC World Champion Jorge Ballesteros uses the brand) is displayed and described here.

    After a year of development, with inputs from world champion Jorge Ballesteros, we’ve been able to come up with the ultimate Open gun.

    One of the requirements was developing a stainless steel grip to add weight to the gun to keep recoil down to a minimum. We provided medium roughness for the grip that is neither too aggressive nor too smooth. The trigger guard has been ergonomically designed to allow the shooter’s fingers to grip the gun as high as possible.

    The pistol has a globally unique one piece 5.7 inch hybrid barrel with a compensator that adds weight to the barrel axis for maximum stability in shooting. The slide is made of stainless steel with lightening cuts. The gun’s sear, hammer and disconnector are machined to the world’s highest standards, providing a perfect trigger pull. The trigger is made of aluminum with interchangeable inserts for a flat or round shoe of three different sizes and different colors.

    The pistol comes with an ambidextrous safety with a thumb guard and guide rod and recoil spring that can be removed without tools.

    The gun has a mount that is suitable for three scope types:
    Nikko Stirling
    Cmore RTS2
    Vortex Razor

    Bul Armory has made the utmost effort to develop and manufacture a gun of the highest possible level for the world’s best shooter and for anyone who is seeking the top for Open guns.

    Unfortunately I was not able to obtain a price for this creation, but Open guns are never on the low or even mid end of the price range.

    What do you think about their new creation?
