I'd like to take this time to share my experience thus far with the SAR k2p 9mm.

I was on the hunt for a quality, full-size 9mm that didn't break the bank. I had already turned down the SD9VE, didn't like the trigger, and I am partial to hammer fired guns. I choose this gun for several reasons:

1. Hammer fired
2. Hi capacity
3. Fit and overall feel of the gun
4. Price
5. Adjustable sights

Little bit about the gun.

(SAR is based out of Turkey and is distributed through EAA in Florida. SAR supplies the Turkish army with the K2p as their sidearm)

Barrel: 3.8"
Action: SA/SA
Sights: Adjustable windage/elevation
Safety: Manual Thumb
Weight: 30 oz (empty)
Height: 6"
Length: 7.5"
Capacity: 17+1 / 19+1

Street price: $290-350.

The CZ 75b magazines will work with this gun. I have a Mec-Gar cz 75b 19 rounder that works flawlessly with this gun.

The factory 17 rounder has also been flawless.

As for holsters, there is a paddle holster available that fits this gun. The Fobus sp-11. I use this holster when I carry this gun in the woods.

I've put hundreds of issue-free round through this gun so far. ALL have been my handloads using my cast boolits [Editor Note: "boolits" is slang for cast-at-home alloyed lead bullets]

I have not used any hollow points.

Accuracy has been very good. At 15 yards, I can keep all 19 rounds in a hand-sized group. Recoil is very manageable.

Field stripping the gun is simple. Pull the slide back about 1/4" to align the two dots on the slide and frame.

Then, keeping the two dots aligned, push out the takedown pin.

Then disassemble as normal.

The only thing that I don't particularly care for about this gun would be the trigger. It's a little gritty with a bit of over travel. The DA pull is heavy, but the SA is pretty good.

Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with this gun, especially for the price I paid. It shoots well, is very reliable, and seems to be a quality handgun!

Excellent choice, the Sar k2p along with another EAA import, the Tanfoglio Witness Polymer, are in my opinion two excellent CZ75 clones that can be had for under $300. I personally am a huge fan of the CZ75 platform they truly are a pleasure to shoot. I think the Tanfoglio gets the nod in the trigger department but both are a great value, Thanks for the write up
