Anyone know anything about them, i know Steyr Mannlicher (SP?) has been making guns for a long time but i went and looked at it at my local gun shop and really like the feel and the trapezoid sights are pretty unique, I wonder if anyone had any experience with it and what they thought??
I have one of the original M9 Steyrs and am very happy with it. It handles and shoots a lot like a Glock, which to me is not a bad thing. The trapezoid sights are great for up close shooting, but at longer ranges (15+ yds) I prefer the conventional type sights. It is a very good quality gun, with machine work and finish comparable to a Glock or Sig. I have not shot one of the A1 series yet, but for the right price I don't see how you could go wrong.
yeah i mean at my local gun store the steyr is only 489...and i really like it just wondering what everone thought i thought it was a great price thats why i asked!!
I shot a Steyr M9 while I was doing my research on my next gun purchase. I loved the way it handled, and the accuracy. I didn't buy it because I was not sure of what kind of manufacturer support I could get.
There is a Steyr forum: http://www.steyrclub.com/modules.php?name=Forums
I've found the gun interesting. And, I have looked at it a few times. But after a neg experience with a 1911 w/ big dot sights, I am scared to try another gun with unconventional sights. I'd have to shoot 1 first to see what I thought about it...
What was wrong with BD sites?

Well, it left a lot to be desired from what U expected out of a 1911. I couldn't get consistent results out of the gun. Got fed up.
I will never go w/ a different site setup w/o trying it first...
