Greetings, Purchased a M40-A1 last February, and finally made it to the range yesterday. Was a bit hesitant on purchasing this pistol because of problems fully explored on this forum. Happy, and relieved to report that the pistol functioned perfectly. Only had time to fire about 50 rounds (I had two other pistols to test), in the Steyr, but I shot a good mix of hardball, along with eight different types of SD hollowpoints. I, and my shooting buddy (who had never even heard of Steyr handguns) really enjoyed the smooth trigger pull, very high bore axis, and trapazoidal sights. So, if some of you readers were thinking of purchasing this pistol, but were put off by the negative comments, give the model a try. The manufacturing date on my M40 was May, 2012, so it seems that the ejection difficulties had been ironed out by then. Cheers.
