Mete Deliveries Continue

Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB) stated that the deliveries of METE pistols, produced by Sarsılmaz and Samsun Yurt Savunma within the scope of the Indigenous Handgun Development Project, continue. Finally, we delivered many METE pistols to our security forces.

The Presidency initiated the project in 2016. Two companies provide their solutions. Samsun Yurt Savunma (SYS) provides CANiK TP9 METE and Sarsılmaz Sar9. The project aims to acquire 290 thousand pistols, where Sarsılmaz will provide 180 thousand and SYS remaining 100 thousand. A Sarsılmaz SAR9 pistol was involved in an incident last year where a policeman was wounded. The gun has undergone some alterations to prevent the accident re-occur.

The Presidency did not declare how many pistols were delivered to security forces.
