Good day to you all.
I have seen only few threads here about Steyr C-A1 pistol. Maybe I missed something, but I had an impression, that it is a limited run for some specific customer and I thought that I will never see it in reality.
Some days ago I have seen a photo from IWA 2010, where a huge STEYR promotional banner was visible with C-A1 on it. After seeing this, I have sent an inquiry to local Steyr distributor, and he informed me that C-A1 in 9*19 is freely available. Price excl. VAT starts at 610 Euros (prices for M9-A1 and S9-A1 in shops c. 900-1000 USD so I guess C-A1 price would be the same). As you can see in the picture it has manual safety and standard dark slide finish.
You will find additional info on a picture below. Also a very interesting part in the picture is AUG Z A3 in 9 mm (I thought they never existed) and HS .50 M1 in .50 BMG
Mind you, I live in European country, so it is not much of info for our American comrades, but who knows, maybe in not so distant future all of these products would be also available there.
This is the first time I hear about C-A1 (I need to visit this forum more often). So which direction did it go compare to M-A1? Is it in between M and S?
