SAR USA by Sarsilmaz Announces the New SAR 9X Platinum 9mm Handgun.
Auburn, AL- November, 2020 – SAR USA by Sarsilmaz, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of firearms is pleased to announce the introduction of the new SAR 9X Platinum striker-fired semi-automatic 9x19mm pistol.
“The SAR 9X Platinum’s DNA comes directly from the SAR 9 pistol which is one of the latest offerings from SAR USA,” said Todd Pearson, COO of SAR USA. “The SAR 9 was originally designed and engineered to compete on the world stage as a military sidearm and to fill a military contract. Now we are offering the SAR 9 in the X Platinum package which includes Cerakote finished slide, paddle holster, double mag pouch, magazine loader and an accessory flashlight. All are packaged in a handsome carrying case”.
The SAR 9X Platinum striker-fired pistol features a lightweight polymer frame with accessory rail, serrated slide with Cerakote platinum finish, and a 4.5″ hammer-forged barrel with a recessed crown for increased accuracy. With a 3-dot sight optic-ready mount plus a choice of three insertable back straps to personalize the fit, the 9X Platinum 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 SAR 9X becomes the perfect carry-pistol when you want a round in the chamber.
The SAR 9X Platinum incorporates a unique safety trigger that features a tabbed 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 when the trigger is in the forward position. Labeled a “striker status indicator”, this enables the shooter to see, at a glance, whether the gun is cocked or not, even from a distance as long as the side of the trigger is visible. The SAR 9X Platinum comes standard with one 17rd. and one 19rd magazine. For capacity restricted states 2-10rd mags.
