Bul Armory Announces Three New Optics-Ready SAS II Handguns

Date:

Bul Armory introduces their newest SAS II model, the optics-cut Radical 5.4″.

Bul Armory announced several new and improved handgun variants at IWA 2023, and today we’ll take a look at those from their SAS II series. There are three, all optics-ready: the SAS II Radical 5.4″, Air, and Saw models. Each is a 1911-based design offered in either 9mm or .40 S&W, and aimed largely at the competition market for use in IPSC Standard and USPSA Limited/Limited Optics divisions. They all feature stainless steel construction, and range in MSRP from $2450 to $3090. The 9mm versions have a 19-round capacity, with one fewer round fitting into the .40s. Read the respective press releases below for further details.

The stainless steel frame is covered by a gray polymer grip module, and houses a 2-2.5lb trigger.

Look for each of these models to become available in the US market in the second quarter of this year. What do you think about the new SAS pistols?

Is there anything you don’t like about them or would like to see changed? Have you ever run any other Bul Armory guns, and what did you think of those? Will these find a place in the competitive shooting market, or will other guns outshine them? Do you plan to buy one or more of these three guns?
