I just received an email from David Bowie (not the singer) of Bowie Tactical Concepts (BTC) in response to my email asking if he would be interested in taking on the MA1 project, specifically as it relates to trigger work - number 1 on a lot of folk's wish list (myself included). If David is willing, finally the MA1 owner would have at his/her disposal a reputable source for commercial gunsmithing support, just like the XD, Glock, M&P and all the other polymer big boys. Assuming David concludes the project is doable (and we're not there yet), it's going to depend on a few things to make it happen. Number one is the factory's willingness to provide BTC with needed parts, secondly David is going to have to be assured there's sufficient interest, now and in the future - that's where the members come in. I urge you to contact BTC AND Steyr USA and tell them there IS interest, that the factory has to do its part, and that we the American consumer have waited long enough. If Steyr wishes to sustain/gain market share in the US, there has to be greater availability of replacement parts and after-market gunsmithing support. Mr. Bowie can be reached at: [email protected] http://www.bowietacticalconcepts.com/ Thanks. And thans to Mugdava for tipping me off about BTC. By email, a link to this thread has been forwarded to Mr. O. Bauer, Steyr Austria and to Jack R., Steyr USA.
