Here is the product announcement from SAR USA:

Miami, FL- April, 2022 – SAR USA, exclusive importer of one of the oldest firearms manufacturers in the world, SARSILMAZ, is proud to announce the introduction of the new SAR9 Compact X striker-fired semi-automatic 9x19mm pistol.

The SAR9 Compact X DNA comes directly from the SAR9 pistol which was originally designed and engineered to compete on the world stage as a military sidearm, and to fill a military contract. Now SAR USA is offering the SAR9 Compact X package which includes: paddle holster, double mag pouch, magazine loader and accessory flashlight. All are packaged in a rugged carrying case.

The SAR9 Compact X striker-fired pistol features a lightweight polymer frame with accessory rail, serrated slide with Cerakote platinum finish and a 4″ hammer-forged barrel with recessed crown for increased accuracy. With a 3-dot sight optic-ready mount plus a choice of three insertable back straps to personalize your fit, the SAR9 Compact X points naturally and is a pleasure to shoot. Its low barrel axis-to-grip ratio lessens muzzle climb, and the 20-degree grip angle provides superior control and fast second-shot recovery. …the accuracy is built in. Couple these features with an ambidextrous safety trigger that is smoother than a double-action revolver and the SAR9 Compact X becomes the perfect carry-pistol when you want a round in the chamber.

The SAR9 Compact X incorporates a unique safety trigger that features a tab safety in the center to prevent inertial discharges should the gun be dropped onto the rear of its slide. There is also a bright-red insert at the top that is visible from the side. This feature enables the shooter to see, at a glance, whether the gun is cocked or not, even from a distance. The SAR9 Compact X comes standard with two 15rd. magazines. For compliant restricted states 2-10rd magazines are included.

    The full size version is the main sidearm of the Turkish army. Every review of that gun seems to indicate it’s accurate, reliable and built like the proverbial brick s**thouse.

    And you can get them for under $300
