Rare SAR 80 Selective Fire Assault Rifles
The Singapore Assault Rifle (SAR) was collaboration between British Sterling Armaments and Chartered Industries of Singapore. It occurred because Chartered Industries gave up production of their licensed version of the M16 rifle due to restricted sales and they requested a replacement.

Some 20,000 rifles were used in Singapore plus export orders.
