Stoeger Industries Str 9F Full Size F

Stoeger Industries announced an expansion of its budget-priced handgun lineup in 2022 with the launch of its Stoeger STR-9F. The all-new pistol is a full-size design that builds on the success of the company's compact variant and retains many of the features consumers enjoyed in the original design.

The Stoeger STR-9F is equipped with a 4.68" barrel and features an overall length of 7.95". The gun is also equipped with an extended grip frame, which houses an enlarged 17-round magazine, giving owners two more rounds of 9 mm Luger over the previous compact model. With an enlarged grip frame and a lengthened slide with an increased sight radius, the Stoeger STR-9F can be confidently employed on the range and for personal defense, as shooters have greater control over the gun and can be more accurate with the lengthened sight radius.

Other features of the Stoeger STR-9F include a contoured grip frame complete with molded-in finger grooves and patches of stippling designed to anchor the gun in a shooter's hand. The magazine release is reversible for left- and right-handed shooters, and slide serrations fore and aft allow users to manipulate the gun with ease. Stoeger's STR-9F also includes a frame-mounted accessory rail, loaded chamber indicator and three-dot sights.

Suggested retail pricing on the new Stoeger STR-9F is $329, and 10-round models are available for residents in capacity-restricted states. For more information, visit
