During my visit to the 2010 NRA Annual Convention in Charlotte, NC, I strolled by the DS Arms booth and spotted a few interesting new products. The first thing I spotted was the newest iteration of the company’s FAL pistol, providing shooters with access to a 7.62×51mm-chambered semi-automatic handgun built off the renowned FAL action. In addition, the company is developing a holster to allow users to comfortably carry this interesting behemoth. For more information, keep an eye out at dsarms.com.

While I was there, I also spoted another extremely interesting gun the company has just developed—a semi-automatic RPD. This gun, shown here built from an Egyptian parts kit but with later models planned to be built from Polish parts kits, is chambered in 7.62×39mm and will be a civilian-legal variant of the Soviet-era light machine gun. For more information, keep an eye out in the pages of Special Weapons for Military & Police magazine as well as at dsarms.com.

At the EAA booth was a new group of pistols just recently arrived from Turkey. Up first was the SAR 10, a large and beefy pistol that is offered in .45 ACP, .40 S&W and 10mm. It features a double-column magazine, frame-mounted manual safety and double-action trigger system. Following it was the SAR K2, a vaguely CZ-75-like double-action pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, 10mm and .45 ACP. It packs excellent ergonomics and a frame-mounted manual safety.

The final offering was the SAR CM, a polymer-framed double-action pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, 10mm and .45 ACP. Sporting a frame-mounted safety, the pistol has a full-sized frame and a short slide assembly for ease of concealment. All three pistols feature integral accessory rails on their dustcovers.
