SAR9 Compact 9mm Black (SAR9C) is a compact version of the full-sized SAR9, a 9mm handgun manufactured in Turkey by Sarsilmaz. The full-sized version is standard issue for the Turkish military.
SAR9 Compact Build & Design
The SAR9 compact version also features a polymer frame. The grip frame is adaptable with interchangeable grip and side panel inserts, allowing a customized fit. The frame also includes an undercut beneath the trigger guard to lower the centerline of the bore, reducing muzzle flip. Visit the SAR9 Compact page to view colors and options available.
