Excellent firearm. Above average accuracy with outstanding reliability. Traded it for a compact pistol for concealed carry. Excellent option for home defense.

I wanted to give this product high ratings but could not. Don't get the all black on unless you want to refinish it all over. The finish is not durable at all and any little thing exposes metal. I was disappointed since my other Sar pistols have a good finish. That being said, the gun shoots very good, and is reliable. The trigger pull is more than I expected, but it's smooth, not gritty. All in all, the price, which I thought was a steal, ends up being about what this gun is worth.

I waited for three month and at least 600 rounds through the gun before writing the review. The gun has pluses and minuses and I will discuss them in detail. On a positive side It is a very high quality gun, but It was so tight that DA became manageable only after 500 rounds, it is like 12lb now. SA is crisp, but not light, about 6 lb. Definitely not DA 8lb, SA 4lb as I read from some reviews. I also had a problem with the slide not moving back after the last round,I even wrote Bud about that, but after 500 rounds the problem disappeared. Probably there were breaking in problems. The gun is heavy, 33oz empty, and I would have expected light recoil, no the recoil was not light but manageable. I used only high quality ammunition both 115g and 124g, not a single problem. Now the sights, I get used to have some space between front sight and U shape rear sight, it helps to aim the pistol. On this pistol there is no gap between front and rear sights, so I have to aline white dots. When the white dots are alined and centered, the top of the front sight is below the top of U shape rear sights. On most of the guns the tops and the white dots are alined together. I found that when the dots are aline the gun shoots just to the center and very accurate. . When I aline the tops, it shoots high. This problem would be easily solved with an elevation adjustable rear sights, but the rear sight was just windage adjustable which was not necessary so far. In conclusion, this is a good gun, definitely worth the money. I would not recommend it as a first gun or for a beginner, but experienced shooter may extract more goods from the gun. I strongly recommend buying life time warranty from Bud. My experience with their customer service is very positive. For all above I give it four stars

Where to begin First of all, I am so thankful to live within an easy drive to Buds Gun Shop. The service that they provide is second to none in the area where I live. The number of products and services that they offer is staggering compared to smaller stores, yet they still deliver an individualized level of customer service. The SAR ST10 is an incredible value in firearms coming out of Turkey. I have had the fortunate opportunity to have owned and tested many of the top models coming out of this historic country. The SAR ST10 comes as a kit with lower end holster, double magazine holster, substantial case, cleaning tools, and the firearm. I was apprehensive at first, nearly changing my mind to go with another handgun. I decided that the weapon felt like a quality piece in the hand, and was worth the risk given its price point. I made the choice to purchase this firearm and see what it could do. Since I was already at the range, I decided to take it straight from the case, and into the range. This goes against my better judgment. I am one to take a weapon home and completely break down the weapon. I will treat the firearm with Frog Lube, and make sure that everything is completely functional. I may polish feed ramps, smooth out trigger parts, or various other items. So taking a firearm out of the box covered in dust, loading it up, and firing it seemed crazy to me. I was extremely surprised by the incredible accuracy of this firearm. I was able to place all 50 rounds of Federal 115 grain round nose in one massive hole. I didn’t experience failures of any kind, and was impressed by the lack of recoil. I took the weapon home and detail cleaned everything on the gun. The build quality was top notch, and compared to my older Sigs. The sights are nice and the rear sight is adjustable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this weapon to anyone looking for a handgun. It is a weapon that could do it all. Light weight alloy frame, high capacity magazines, chrome cold forged barrel, and excellent accuracy. Bottom line, buy this pistol.

Bought this gun because I have a SAR K2 45 that I love. Fit and finish on the ST10 are on par with my K2, in fact I think it probably functions a little smoother and has slightly better slide to frame fit. So far I have only taken it to the range once and put about 160 rounds through it, but I had zero malfunctions. I shot it right out of the box without even cleaning it and used a variety of ammo. Point of impact was slightly higher than point of aim, but not an issue, just had to hold at 6 o'clock. Firing single action, the trigger is not incredibly light but breaks cleanly with a short reset. The double action pull is pretty heavy though, but I don't mind for the sake of safety. If I was to carry this gun I probably wouldn't even use the manual safety; I'd carry it with a round in the chamber and the hammer at the half cock position. Also, I was pleasantly surprised that the gun came with a belt slide holster and dual magazine carrier, which I wasn't expecting. A negative would be that I was expecting the rear sight to be fully adjustable like the K2, when it is actually only drift adjustable. BTW no adjustment was needed there. Gun hit dead center left to right, only slightly high like I mentioned before. All in all I give it a 5 for being a helluva bargain.

This does not reflect on Buds at all but mainly EAA. They came through with a great gun and great price. This more reflects the customer service at EAA but anybody buying this gun being imported from EAA needs to know. I got my St10 and brought it out the first time to the range and had a very bad time. It would fire a round and then the trigger wouldn't reset but just kind of squish back into the trigger guard. It seems that it has two clicks to fully reset and if you fire then gun and pull back on that first click it always misfires. You have to let it make a second click to fully reset and then it works. Not something you can rely on for anything let alone even being a range gun, fire then nothing....rack slide, fire and then nothing...repeat. The gun itself it beautifully machined and is fitted very tight. The one round we could fire was right on but the second never happened. The gun arrived from Buds on 10/15 Wednesday. This all happened on 10/18 Saturday. I made my first call on 10/20 Monday. Today is Nov 3rd. I finally got through to a gunsmith. Right out of the gate, he was being highly contemptuous and I didn't know why as it was the first time I ever talked to the guy or anybody there past a secretary for that matter. I tried to explain what my gun was doing wrong but he didn't want to hear it. Then towards the end of me explaining what it was doing wrong he finally says I had called 10 times and everybody told me the same thing every time I called which was to "send the gun in" so that's what I need to do. Um, no. First off just checked my cell phone which records calls back for months of each and every call and I called 10/20, 10/21, 10/23, 10/31 and today 11/3 and never got past an operator that said to either call back as they were busy, just left or that she would send the message for them to call back. I hope their gunsmithing is not as bad as their customer service because it stinks. They were apparently getting the messages to call but ignoring them. This is the first and last gun I will purchase that has EAA stamped on it. No gun manufacturer can turn out 100% for every gun and I understand that. I''m sure the gun will eventually run so for SAR directly, I give the gun high praise for a quality along with Buds also as the price can't be beat anywhere. For the importer though, they need to wake up and read all the horrible reviews on the internet on their customer service and shape up.
