How do you like that .45 Steve? I’ve heard good things, off course when I go to buy one they are sold out.

Reliable 100%, feels like a Beretta 92FS when shooting (recoil and handling), and extremely accurate. 14+1 .45, it is my go-to duty gun. I carry it often in the winter (easier to CCW)

I gave my B6P compact to my father in law (replaced it with the C100). A lot of fun for the money. Nothing else in it's price range ($260) compares. The only complaint I had was the trigger slap (but it was still easy to shoot and accurate)

I want one of the K2 .45's. I wish they'd come back in stock and at the same price or less than what they were. Don't ever see that happening though....

They are awesome pistols. At $369 (what I paid) you can't go wrong

Was looking at one of those a week ago. I'd put the trigger up against a VP9 or PPQ any day.

They are built on the original Beretta tooling, sent over when Beretta took over Stoeger. You're getting essentially a Beretta at a bargain price. Whats not to love about the gun.

The K2 is an outstanding value. I went ahead and put wood grips on mine, as well as got a leather shoulder rig to carry it around the property in.

I previously owned a set of B6P's when they first came out, but sold them to buy something or another that I've already sold by now. They were nice, although they are a walking billboard for Sar Arms.

don't look now, but they've copied HK again:

"The SAR9 measures 7.5″ in length and 5.5″ in height and is 1.4″ thick. It weighs of 27 oz. The SAR9 has an integrated trigger safety and ambidextrous thumb safeties. Models without thumb safeties are also available, as well as stainless matte models."

Right now I think the Turk manufactured firearms are the best value out there.

There are many sources for low priced firearms, but rarely do they bring the quality of the more established brands for a much lower entry price as the Turk products seem to provide at the moment.

This year we bought (4) Turk manufactured pistols:
(1) SAR ARMS K2 45
(2) Tristar (Canik) C100
(1) Zenith (Tisas) M45 (1911 Commander).

All four are exceptional products for the price. I plan to add more to the collection in 2018!

Overall, the Turk products remind me of the value of the CZ pistols 15+ years ago.

I currently use the Zenith M45 for CCW and keep the SAR K2 45 in my night stand for home defense. The Zenith replaced my HP Detective model I carried for many years.

I will try to post some pictures later of the four mentioned above..

I own a Tri Star Canik P-100 and a Sarsilmaz CM9 Gen 2.

I owned a Canik TP9 with the decocker, but I sold it.

Picking up a Tri Star Canik C-100 this week.

If I can swing it, I want to add a Sarsilmaz Kilinc Mega 2000 as well.

The Turkish handguns are top quality for bargain prices right now.

Here is the Zenith (Tisa)M45
http://s350.photobucket.com/user/fle...m.jpg.html?o=1

Another of the Zenith with a CMC 10 round mag inserted
http://s350.photobucket.com/user/fle...i.jpg.html?o=2

Here is another, the Zenith is bottom left and the SAR K2 45 top right
http://s350.photobucket.com/user/fle...w.jpg.html?o=3

SAR K2 45 is at the top
http://s350.photobucket.com/user/fle...n.jpg.html?o=7

Tristar (Canik) C100 on right
http://s350.photobucket.com/user/fle...q.jpg.html?o=5

As far as what I would like next, I am really thinking about a Tristar P120 in 40S&W. I have an FN HP in 40, but the prices for those has become crazy so I really do not shoot it much anymore.

I have a Stoeger Cougar and SAR K2 45. They are military grade firearms you can depend on.

I love my Zenith mp5. I wasn’t convinced that Turkish made weapons were nice until I got one.

Whatever my TP9SF copies, it is an excellent pistol. I love my TP9SF! The trigger is fantastic, and the reliability has been 100% Mec Gar magazine bonus for the win! My next pistol purchase will be an authentic CZ P-07 though.

I really want my K2 to be my beater gun because it is a tank and do ant quit, but I like it too much to scratch it up and abuse it. It's my $370 safe queen lol.

The PPQ uses the same internals. People have swapped frames on Walther forums. Just doesn't have DA, either does the SF
"The only difference between the P99 AS and PPQ trigger mechanism is the double action lug. While the PPQ is missing the decocker button in the slide, it uses the exact same sear and release from the P99 AS."

I just shot my buddies. AMAZING gun. Also you get a lot of accessories included right off the bat. Very well built too. I just ordered a TP9SF elite in OD green.
