    That's the good news...and here's some more good news...along with a little not so good news...but it is promising :thumbsup:

    The L45-A1 has yet to make it's debut, but "Baby Steps" comes to mind. <shrug>

    Take care, Guys.

    Wulf <-- kinda prefers long-legged, skimpily clad Amazon Women steps :drool:

    Less interested in .45 than in 10mm. BRING ME THE BEAST! L10A1.. just sounds dangerous.

    If you keep talking so much sense you may have to run for president!

    I would be all over this idea, but cant imagine hacking up guns with a dremel (seen it "dun befo," makes me nervous)

    maybe if we start a list of potential buyers they'd have a reason to import some sooner

    I need one now. If they can get this to Canada, put me on the list. Any idea what the length and barrel length specs are?

    That shouldn't be necessary - I think just about everyone at Steyr-Mannlicher and Steyr Arms has heard from one person or another on this forum by now, and we just found out about it yesterday. :lol:

    They know we're interested, and there can be little doubt that the US will get it as soon as possible - we are, after all, the largest market for these things in the world.

    AWESOME.

    Mixed feelings because with the longer slide, I can't mount it on the plastic M9 frames, anymore. :(

    That just means that I will have to get a new gen A1 and the L9-A1!!! The .357SIG is also very tempting... !!!

    For my fellow Canucks, I've emailed Wolverine to see what their order availability is like.

    No. As I understand it, they are not on sale in Germany yet. I've heard that the US will see these on sale before Germany, but that summer date is bogus. We shall see...

    Another update - at this time, only 9mm is in the works. If Oliver told Wulf the gun will be available in .40S&W and .357SIG eventually, I believe it - but like the C-A1, we're only going to get 9mm when this gun first makes its debut. Additional specs in case anyone is interested:

    OAL is 191mm (7.5")
    Barrel length is 115mm (4.5")
    Weight is 810 grams empty (1.79 lbs.)
    Same barrel twist as the other Steyr pistols - 1/9.8
    Ambidextrous magazine catch
    Rear loaded chamber indicator

    I honestly wish it was a full 5", but I suppose i can't judge it until I see it and I should be grateful either way. :lol: Stay tuned - we'll post up more details as they become available...

    I third the 5" bbl length comment.

    It's like Glock when they go from 4 to 4.5. I never saw the point of .5! :(

    Still very awesome. :)

    I on the other hand am very happy, since we can't have compacts up here. :D Well we can as long as you throw a stupidly long barrel on it, which defeats the purpose.

    Youre right, they aren't sold yet, and i am sure, the us market will get them first. The Date of Summer is by Steyr, but the importer told me autumn 2012 :(
