    Steyr MA1

    I looked at a Steyr MA1 (40 S&W) this weekend at a gunshow. Feels good and I understand the price isn't half bad. 10 round mags, I wonder if 12s are available. Anybody have one ? Any complaints?

    First thing that came up on google, right on the Steyr website. Go down, it says 10 or 12rd available where legal.

    Yes, I have one. Yes, you can get 12 round mags (I have two). Yes, it's a great gun and much better than the price would indicate.

    Shot my Steyr M40 yesterday

    More from my non-Glock Austrian

    Go stalk SteyrClub's forums if you have any particular questions:

    Some people seem to have issues with the extractor, though I am 600 rounds (I know, not a lot) into mine and haven't had any problems at all.

    The only "issue" I've had with mine is when I fill the mags to capacity (12) the slide is harder to pull back than if there are less than 12. I am not sure why this is, and it's still manageable, it's just odd.

    I either put a little more elbow grease into it or lock the slide back first, insert the mag, and let the slide slam shut. It doesn't discourage me at all from trusting it.
