Sarsilmaz B6C (Compact), Handgun Review

Sarsilmaz B6C (Compact) is a very good Turkish handgun in the 9 mm category. It has a polymer frame and a forged steel alloy slide. The B6C is a SA/DA pistol with a manual safety, also has drop safety. The handgun is adequately sized for concealed carry, as the pistol is compact version of the Sarsilmaz B6. It comes with simple three dot sights, a small extension in mag base improves the grip. It is a slide in frame design with a tight grip. However, you have to get used to the rather reduces space for racking the slide. It comes in a box with spare mag (13 round), cleaning rod, user manual and oil bottle etc. See the specs and photos for details.

 

 

Specs:

  • Caliber: 9 x 19 mm
  • Action: SA/DA
  • Mag Capacity: 13 + 1
  • Barrel length: 3.8”
  • Overall pistol length: 7.4”
  • Pistol height: 5.2”

The mag release isn’t ambidextrous so basically meant for right handed persons.

 

The B6C is a well balanced handgun in the 9 mm category. Fits well, unless you have very large hands. In a slightly reduced size you get 13 rounds capacity with double stack magazine. This is a no bells and whistles pistol which does the job. It used to sell for under Rs 60k, but now due to the weapons import ban you will be lucky to find it under Rs 120k. One of the good pistols in the market for CC.

  1. I have this kind of gun (b6c) and I looking for the pistol grip, black in a goof condition or new. If you know where I can find it, please let me know.

    Thanks.

    1. Depending on where you are located. But do try eBay. Since its based on CZ design so CZ 75 compact grip should do. Also Google hogue universal grips. Good luck

  2. HOW DO I PUT A ROUND INTO THE CHAMBER AND KEEP THE HAMMER IN THE UPWARD POSTION SO IT WILL NOT BE COCKED BACK

    1. 1. You rack the slide with a loaded magazine off course, and your finger off the trigger.
      2. The round moves in to the chamber.
      3. Very slowly while pointing the gun in a safe direction press the trigger while holding the hammer and let it fall, it will stop just millimeters away from the firing pin.
      4. Now you will have to fire it in double action, with a longer pull.
      But why don’t you make use of the safety instead?
      Cheers

  3. Where can I find lighter magazine springs for my new B6C 9MM SARSILMAZ? The magazine springs that come with it are way to hard to even force three rounds in them.

    1. New magazines are like that. But I’m surprised Sarsilmaz springs are that hard. I’ve seen this in Russian handguns. Run 500 rounds through it. After break in it will be better. Get a speed loader it will help you.
