Small Arms Review is published 10x per year. SAR started with the premier issue, Volume 1 # 1, in October 1997. Our purpose is to provide a forum for all aspects of the Class 3 interests, as well as any aspect of the military small arms industry. Our target readership is composed of five basic groups, many of whose interests overlap; NFA Collectors and historians, NFA leisure and Competition shooters, Military Users, Law Enforcement personnel, and industry people. It is the target of the contributing writers to try and satisfy the interests of at least one of these groups in each article, and to overlap interests where possible.
Our pledge to the readers is simply this; to give you the most thorough information possible, in as interesting a format as we can. We will strive to bring the information to life, and to go places others have not.
