    THIS ITEM IS SOLD

    I really didn't want to sell this gun but I have quite a few reasons that I need to let it go. I wanted to post it here in hopes that this gun will "stay in the family" before I trade it in at the store :)

    The gun shop I bought it from offered me $275 and no extra money for the mags or the holster. I think this would be a waste since its such a nice holster and I don't want to keep it sitting around if I don't have the gun.

    The package is the newest, "Made in Austria" Steyr 9mm handgun M-1A with 7 magazines (2 are 10 rounders, rest are 15), a tan leather DeSantis Speed scabbard and matching double magazine holder. I am asking $300.

    Details for the gun can be found here http://www.steyrarms.com/index.php?id=4

    The gun has about 2500-2700 rounds through it. It has been to the Steyr Arms USA (in Cummings, GA) twice for repairs early on. Since the last trip, it has been working great, that's been about 1700+ rounds. It doesn't like Rem UMC ammo as much, still shoots it but will throw the spent cases around and has thrown one or two at my head before. It has the Trapezoid sights.

    I have used this gun as my house gun and at the first day of the Firearmz class. So, it works fine, and shoots very soft and accurate. There is very little wear on it, I will post pics when I get the chance tomorrow.

    PM or post here if you are interested. Thanks.

    :( I hope you're selling it to pay for another gun. Net loss of guns is a bad thing.

    Polymer is polymer, my friend.

    It doesn't matter what kinda guns you sell, selling guns (whatever kind) is a bad thing.

    but it's only a 9mm so it's almost like it's not a real gun.

    True, but if it had been a Glock, I'm sure he would've worded it quite differently...

    "Good for you. Get rid of that water pistol and go buy you a real gun."

    I would... but I'm poor... dirt poor.

    I'm not good at buying things... I'm just good at hijacking threads.

    Well, I don't really need a Steyr, but you do need a cleaning kit, so I think we might be able to get a fair trade going.... :twisted:

    Well, I'd really like it. I've been looking at those Steyrs for some time. I do have to check the financial outlook first, though, and I might need to call in some early birthday favors. How long you gonna keep it before the shop gets it?

    I think I may take it into the shop this Saturday if I don't get any interest here. Working on pics, now.

    I had a chance to handle one a few weeks ago, not a big fan of all the plastic, but it sure fell into my hand well, very comfortable to hold, but I found that I had a tendency to aim lower with it due to the (what I consider) extreme angle of the grip.

    The upside of that angle is that the recoil is directed backwards, resulting in less felt recoil which means you can get several shots out fast and place them closer to each other than compared to a gun that flips up with recoil.

    Yes, it is plastic like Glocks, and pretty much all new guns. But at least it looks a ton better than a Glock and keeps the weight down.

    Right, when I meant new guns, I meant new in design, which excludes 1911s.
