Abstract: We study Klyachko models of $ \mathrm{SL}(n, F)$, where $ F$ is a non- Archimedean local field. In particular, using results of Klyachko models for $ \mathrm{GL}(n, F)$ due to Heumos, Rallis, Offen and Sayag, we give statements of existence, uniqueness, and disjointness of Klyachko models for admissible representations of $ \mathrm{SL}(n, F)$, where the uniqueness and disjointness are up to specified conjugacy of the inducing character, and the existence is for unitarizable representations in the case $ F$ has characteristic 0. We apply these results to relate the size of an $ L$-packet containing a given representation of $ \mathrm{SL}(n, F)$ to the type of its Klyachko model, and we describe when a self-dual unitarizable representation of $ \mathrm{SL}(n, F)$ is orthogonal and when it is symplectic.
