Ruger-57

Canik METE SFx

$538.99

“The METE SFX series by Canik introduces another striker-fired, polymer 9mm pistol into an already crowded market. But priced just over $500 and with a bunch of extras, I think the METE SFX is a clear winner. The gun performed well at the range, shot accurately, and feels great.” – Johnny B

Springfield Armory Emissary 1911

$1,158.99

Springfield Armory’s Emissary 1911 is where classic meets modern.  It functions just like an old school 1911 but has modern touches such as the full-length guide rod and a heavy-profile, bushingless bull barrel.  This gun looks and feels quality.

Canik METE SFT

$474.99

“The METE SFT by Canik offers another striker-fired, polymer 9mm pistol in an already crowded market. But priced just over $500 and with a bunch of extras, I think it offers a nice choice for those that want to carry without spending a ton of money. The SFT would make a decent addition to any concealed carry setup.” – Johnny B.
