The Steyr C9-A1 compact 9mm auto is a peculiar but good handgun. Here are some oddities:
1.although advertised as 17 round, it comes with a 15 round mag, And dealing with STeyr to rectify the problem is not fun. You'll have better things to do: Steyr doesn't seem anxious to rectify the advertising error or to pay for the shipping and exchange.
2. The handgun shoots super: good short trigger, lovely balance, and a very short slide travel. It cycles quickly and loads and ejects superbly. You may however get a hot casing in the puss, since the angle of ejection is to the right and rearward. Not fun, but not serious either.
3, the Steyr ergonomics are superior, as good as the HK or Sig,for somewhat less money. A good buy in all. I recommend you get one. I suspect they will be phased out soon due to the mixup with the magazines.
4. The sights are great - two white read trapezoidal sights and one red front sight: easy to acquire and re-acquire target! Along with the short flat slide, a very accurate weapon, and quick as a bunny cycling rounds!
5. stripping the weapon is also strange, since you have to depress a right side safety to release the slide lever. Then, the slide and barrel assembly simply fall off-- very different from the Walther handguns, which have a much more complicated disassembly mechanism. Be carefull the slide doesn't fall off when you depress the slide release.
6.But it SHOOTS like a dream, witness Silva in the latest Bond movie, Skyfall, where the villain/badguy/rogue 00 agent carries a Steyr at the end and asks M to kill them both with it with one shot. Cool. The evil twit knows good arms, that's for sure.
