Steyr Arms Reintroduces M-A1 and S-A1 Pistols

Polymer-framed 9 mm and .40 S&W pistols brought back to American market after hiatus.

Steyr Arms announced that it has begun re-importing the popular polymer-framed 9 mm/.40 S&W pistols, the M-A1 and S-A1, with the first batch going out to dealers later this month.

I have an originaly Steyr 357 Sig and I love it. I like how it handles with little blow back recoil. The Steyr looks awkward but once you pick it up, it will fit comfortably. I would diffently recommend this gun to anyone.
