Sarsilmaz K2-45 pistol is manufactured in Turkey by company Sarsilmaz. These pistols are broadly based on the famous and well-proven design of the Czechoslovak CZ-75 pistol, and are made from quality materials (mostly forged steel; manufacturer states service life for this pistol for at least 25,000 rounds) and with fine workmanship. Sarsilmaz K2-45 pistols are full-size, service-type pistols which are most suitable for police and security use, self-defense (although the pistol is somewhat big and heavy for concealed carry) and other uses such as practical shooting.
Sarsilmaz K2-45 pistols are short-recoil operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistols that use modified Browning-type action with tilting barrel. The barrel is locked to the slide by a single lug, which engages the ejection port. Frame and slide are manufactured from forged steel, and available in a variety of finishes. Trigger is of traditional double action type, with exposed hammer and automatic firing pin block safety. Manual safety lever is conveniently located on the frame, above the pistol grip, and locks the hammer and sear in lowered or cocked positions. Sarsilmaz K2-45 pistols use double stack, single-feed high capacity magazines which hold 14 rounds, magazine release button is located at the base of the trigger guard. K2-45 pistols are usually produced with fixed front and adjustable rear sights which are dovetailed to the slide. Front part of the frame is shaped to provide integral Picatinny rail for accessories such as laser aiming modules or tactical flashlights.
