posted on June 29, 2019

It was at SHOT Show 2019 where Stoeger Industries, a company known in the U.S. for its imported scatterguns, unveiled a full-size 9 mm Luger—the STR-9. This semi-automatic resides on a black polymer frame optioned with finger grooves and removable backstraps to enhance ergonomics. The striker-fired STR-9 operates via recoil operation and ships with a 15-round detachable box magazine. Fully-featured with reversible magazine release, three-dot sights and accessory rail on the dust cover, the STR-9 provides for a durable and easy-to-use handgun at a price point tailored for smaller budgets. To learn more about the Stoeger Industries STR-9, watch this NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz.
