I bought a Steyr M9-A1 on a whim and a good deal about 6 months ago and tossed it in the back of the safe. Well it was so beautiful today I took it and the new G19 I just bought out for a trial run. All I can say is the Steyr has to be the most under rated pistol out there!!! It doesn't have the goverment contracts like Glock, nor produce anywhere near the number of pistols that Glock does, they are a small Austrian company more known for their rifles than pistols. Many say the Steyr's are the guns Glock should have been. I can't knock my Glocks they are excellent firearms, but these Steyr's are incredible!! Tollerances are much tighter and the use a non traditional type of sights. Think of a triangle and the top 1/3 is the front sight and the bottom 2/3 is the rear sight. I will say it makes for a very fast and accurate sight alignment. This full size pistol has only 75 rounds through her and very, very accurate, much more than the Glocks, but I am sure the increased weight helps in this area, at least for me it does. I can't wait to see how she shoots after a few hundred rounds. Now that I have shot it I am now putting a M40-A1 or a S40-A1 at the top of my want list. If you don't know they are not imported any longer and no plans to change this due to the weak US dollar. I just thought I would see if there are any other Steyr fans out there.
