Local store has 'em for $400 all day. Anyone hear about these guns? I know Steyr isn't importing them anymore.

S/N range was 44,XXX I believe.

Steyer always made odd looking handguns. That said, back in the day I wanted a GB.

Supposed to be everything that a second generation Glock should have been.... As in: designed by a Glock Employee but Gaston, being the pig-headed guy that he is, didn't want anything to do with it (why break a winning and money making formula)

Ergos on the M9a1 are supposedly excellent and the trigger is supposed to be half reasonable too.

I often thought about getting one but never got around to it.

The one I shot in Cali did everything it should have except let me hit the target where I aimed .
The grip was way to funked up for me .
Te sights took a bit to get used to also .

Over at the Steyr Club they talk about where to find repair parts such as firing pins and magazine springs and how to keep them running. Great looking pistols but damn.

In a recent Shotgun news article, Kokalis roasted the M9 and other Steyr pistols.

Handguns are not their best product.

Are you speaking of the ones down in SA where they didn't do real maintenance on them?

I bought one last year for around $325, but I can't remember where I ordered it from. I love it. Ditto on Steyr Club, that site is great for parts and other info on Steyr products.

Yup.

He had less than flattering things to say about Steyr's entire line-up, not just the pistolas used in South America.

He was pretty brutal, actually. I seldom read his stuff where he savages a firearm that badly, much less an entire product line.

Then again, he speaks about Glocks in superlatives, but everyone knows they always blow up and aren't worth a bucket of goat snot . . .

I had a M9 it was a great pistol, very accurate and I loved the trapezoid sights. I should have kept it.

I carry my M9 (not a1). Reliable, accurate, much better ergos than the glock IMHO and I like the trapeziod sights. It is hard to find accessories for. No XS sights for instance, although Crossbreed does mack a super tuck holster for it. It is also slightly larger than a glock 19.

I have a M9-A1, it also has a weak extractor.

That's the only bad thing I can say about it.
