A pistol you Americans might actually like for once...

Post by Piero on Sat 1 Aug 2009 - 22:18

Yes, I know, I'm the guy who normally equips his OCs with 'wimpy' 9mms on the flimsy basis that that's the accepted standard in Europe. For once however I'm actually considering a .45 for some of my OCs, namely this one: the Sarsilmaz K2-45, a Turkish built copy of the CZ-75 chambered in .45 with a fourteen round magazine capacity. Sarsilmaz pistols are reportedly very well made, Armalite imports some of the 9mm versions under their brand name.

As a note, the photo on the modern firearms site doesn't quite do the pistol justice. There's a picture on Sarsilmaz's own website that shows one with a really nice set of wood grips (and also has a more complete specs sheet). Unfortunately due to the way the company's site is set up you'll have to find it on your own, the closest I can get you is the company's English webpage.

I wonder if this thing was ever legally imported into Italy... Sonia's pistol was something she inherited from her dead sister (an intelligence agent) and I've sometimes thought it might be good if it was chambered in a calibre that was legal for the Italian civilian market.

There are actually several manufacturers that make .45 CZ variants, including CZ itself (CZ 97B), IMI (Jericho variants) and Tanfoglio. None of those three have this thing's magazine capacity though. Smile

I kind of find myself wondering which of the characters I'm considering giving this thing too would be best suited for it. I think I'm starting to lean towards Sonia, although it seems a tad strange that she carries this monster while her charge carries a Walther P5C with a magazine capacity of eight 9mm rounds.

The Sarsilmaz K2-45 pistol looks a lot like a 1911 clone than a CZ clone to me.
But hey... it works and thats what counts.

Only if I had a Turkish OC, then they would have it. Evil

Certainly does look like a CZ more than a 1911. I wonder what the import price will be. If it's anything like my Stoeger 8000 pistol (which was $329 compared to the Beretta's $860), I'm in.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.
