    I know these folks are out of business...did the Google search, with very little info. however, ever since I saw a .40 caliber that a guy had on display for his gun/metal coating business (wasn't for sale), I've been curious. I know the SA-9 was the 9mm version, but what was the .40?

    I also know this was a Kel-Tec lookalike; what drove them out of business? Cheap product? Copyright infringement?

    The one this fellow had looked great; his wife used it (a .40 caliber!) to shoot snakes!

    Hope this was the right forum for this...thanks!

    SA 9mm

    I've read where the Standard Arms 9mm had the slide fracture in 2 or 3 places as well as the trigger spring break. Sounds like a real jewel to me. There are a couple of SA-9's listed at GunsAmerica.com If you check with the BBB where the factory WAS, you'll also find that they were pretty much against the wall as far as selling a product that would hurt the user more than the agressor. I'd feel safer with a sigma, intratec cat series, ruger P-series, taurus, and the list of JUNK goes on. And YES...I did include the Ruger P-series. The safest place to be around a Ruger P series is behind it or directly in front of it because there's no way you are going to hit what you're aiming at (personal experience).:rolleyes:
