SAR 9X Platinum Details
The DNA of the SAR 9X Platinum comes from SAR 9, which is one of SAR USA’s new deals,” said Todd Pearson, COO SAR United States. “SAR 9 was originally developed and designed to compete as a military sidearm on the world stage and to fill a military contract. We now sell the SAR 9 in the X Platinum kit that includes finished Cerakote slide, paddle holster, double magnet bag, magazine loader and flash lamp accessories. Everyone is packed in a beautiful case.”
A lightweight polymer structure is available on the striker-fired 9X Platinum. It has an accessory train and a clamped slide with a platinum finish of Cerakote. For increased accuracy, a 4.5-inch hammer forged barrel sports an embedded crown. A three-dot eye and a ready optical mount meanwhile lets shooters achieve their target.
The tray has a low barrel axis that contributes to control the rise of the muzzle. A grip angle of 20 degrees provides better retrieval according to SAR. An ambidextrous safety trigger helps to expand the range.
A single safety trigger requires a tab safety in the middle, which avoids inertial releases. When the trigger is forward, a brightly rod insert at the top shows. It helps shooters to see when they have the pistol cocked. A 17 round and 19 round magazine are included in the arsenal. The 9X Platinum is worth a look for less than $450.
