Every issue of Combat Handguns, we try to offer up the best guns and gear in our “Fully Loaded” giveaways. While past iterations have showcased some of the bigger names in the firearms industry, we’d like to remind you of a historic company that needs a bit more recognition on this side of the Atlantic and its SAR K12 Sport.

Our SAR K12 Sport Giveaway

Founded in 1840, Sarsilmaz is a Turkish company that is now considered one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the world. But until recently, its high-quality weapons were only available here through third-party importers. Now, SAR USA is working closely with Sarsilmaz to develop and import products specifically for the American market. Which brings us to the sweet gun up for grabs.

1. SAR USA K-12 Sport

The “crown jewel” of the SAR USA lineup is the K-12 Sport. Built for speed and accuracy, Sarsilmaz makes this single-action 9mm from forged steel and aluminum for a combined weight of 46.9 ounces unloaded. That weight helps absorb recoil, and the gun also has a crowned, match-grade, 4.7-inch barrel; a crisp trigger with an overtravel adjustment; and a full-length dust cover.

More features include an ambi thumb safety, matte aluminum grip panels, a flared magazine well, an oversized magazine release and an adjustable rear sight. To top it all off, the K-12 Sport looks awesome thanks to its chrome finish as well as its wide front and rear slide serrations. Needless to say, this pistol is a race gun built for extreme handling and speed. (

2. Safariland Model 577 GLS

This retention holster from Safariland features the company’s Grip Lock System (GLS), which securely locks the pistol in place automatically as soon as it is holstered, but it’s easily disengaged by the shooter’s middle finger when gripping the pistol for the draw. Safariland also crafted the holster crafted from SafariSeven; it’s a proprietary nylon blend that can handle extreme temperatures and won’t damage your firearm’s finish. The injection-molded belt loops fit both 1.5- and 1.75-inch-wide belts. (

3. Elite Survival Systems Range Bag

Tough, well-built range bags are important for keeping all of your guns and accessories organized and safe. The Elite Range Bag from Elite Survival Systems is just that. Made from 1,000-denier nylon with YKK #10 zippers, wraparound carry handles and a padded shoulder strap, this range bag is super durable. It also comes with a fortified inner tote featuring padded compartments that lifts out for quick access to your gear. The front pocket has a modular Velcro pouch for six magazines, and the external MOLLE webbing allows for more customization. (

4. SIG Sauer Elite V-Crown JHPs

Of course we had to throw in some ammo to feed the K-12 Sport! For this giveaway, we’re including SIG Sauer’s 124-grain V-Crown JHPs. SIG designed them for consistent, controlled expansion in a self-defense situation. SIG also uses low-flash propellants and a cannelured shank, resulting in maximum weight retention without destroying your night vision. These rounds are rated for 1,165 fps at the muzzle. (
