    The Gun Gods Are Teasing Me...

    Being, literally, a few days away from ordering a G31 I check CDNN's newest catalog and I see they're selling Steyr M40A1's for $350. I've always wanted an M40A1 and with the company going under, who knows how long they'll be available. I've always thought they were the 'ugly duckling'/ beauty is in the eye of the beholder type of piece (which I think they're cool looking), they are extremely comfortable in my hand, and I really like the their sights.

    Argh, what to do!?

    Well by all means get the M40A1. The Glock will always be there. Always feed the want not the need. You'll enjoy your guns more that way.

    As an owner of a G23 I can say that the Glock is no beauty queen either. But as said here, the Glock will be around for a while.

    U have to download their new catalog. That's where all the guns are listed. It comes out typically every quarter. Sometimes a bit more often...

    What will the parts availability be on the Steyr?

    You know Glock will be around for customer support, and accessories will always abound for them.

    Thumbs up

    Well guys (and gals), I made my decision and placed the order late Tuesday. Got a call today that she had arrived, so I went to get her.





    Thing is, after debating with myself, I went for the Glock (obviously). I wanted it more and am more confident in its long term performance/ support (mainly the support part). I also got a chance to shoot a G31 (though not the comp model like I got), so I knew I liked it. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and if in a month or so CDNN still has some Steyrs, I will probably get one; if they don't, wasn't meant to be.

    Anyway, enough philosophy/ psychology crap. Can't wait to shoot her!

    Thanks to all who replied to this thread as well as my Best pistol in a 357 sig thread. I appreciate your help!

    I think I am going to call her "The Black Dragon" because of her fire breathing nostrils.

    :cheers:
