The Singapore Assault Rifle 80, better known as the SAR 80, is a Singaporean assault rifle.
The rifle was developed in the early 1970s by Sterling Armament Company as an offspring of sorts of their older Light Automatic Rifle, but was shelved when Sterling acquired the license to produce the AR-18. Due to this, the resulting weapon resembled the LAR with AR-18 parts. While cheaper and more reliable than the M16S1, the SAR 80 was not well-received due to it being less user-friendly and heavier, and as a result, only about 20,000 were made. Most have been phased out in favor of the newer SR 88, but an undisclosed number of SAR 80s are still being stored by the Singaporean Police and used by Army logistic units.
- It has been incorrectly reported that the SAR 80 was the standard assault rifle of the Singaporean Army; in reality, the SAR 80 was not widely adopted and Singaporean soldiers were not trained on this weapon in large numbers.
