    I just got in my new holster (Corporal Punishment) for my M40-A1 today
    from Blue Line Leather. The pistol is a snug fit out of the
    box and snaps secure for basic level 1 retention. The all leather
    paddleback makes it a more comfortable ride on your hip than the molded
    plastic seen on most commercial offerings. Drawing the pistol from the
    holster is smooth and effortless. I can't say that for the other
    non-lined leather holsters I've used. I don't think this one will
    require a long break-in period. The quality and craftsmanship that went
    into building this holster really stands out. The Steyr feels alot
    lighter on my side than my department issued Glock 30 and I am looking
    forward to changing out this week during in-service. It took 5 weeks to
    arrive and cost a total of 49.50 including shipping. I am very pleased
    with my purchase from Blue Line Leather so far.

    Sorry for the super giant images........

    Very nice looking holster.

    I love leather for comfort nothing comes close in the plastic world.

    Mine arrived today also.
    Standard thumb break pancake.
    Pistol fits perfect.

    Best value I've found in years in a leather holster.

    Weird, I just noticed that your slide has STEYR M40A1 on the ejection port side. Does it have it on both sides?

    Mine has STEYR M40A1 on the left side, and STEYR MANNLICHER on the ejection port side.

    Hmm, thats an IMPORTANT observation Thunderbear makes.

    Have to look into this. There are those MA1s that have M40 still on the slide as well, now we've got some that say MA1 on one side and Steyr Mannlicher on the other, and yet others that have MA1 on both sides? Is this a way to ID different production series? If so, we could watch for problems and match them to the series.

    GOOD CALL THUNDERBEAR.

    No pics, it has superb retention and is fitted perfect.
    The trigger is covered well and leaves room for a full grip.

    One thing I didn't like is the snap on the thumb break is uncovered and has metal contact on the slide, I cut a peice of loop self adhesive velcro to cover and problem solved.

    Frame question

    M40-A1 is on the ejection port side......
    Steyr Mannlicher Austria is on the other side.......

    As for problem tracking.....Pistol #52390
    Out of the box, No FTF or FTE after 500 rounds.
    It eats cheap ammo by the box (Wolf, American and Independence)
    I've used the 2 factory mags, 2 old style (leo restricted) mags from CDNN and 4 new mags from OnPoint with no issues.
    The feed ramp on this gun is so polished from the factory, it would probably cycle empty brass.

    Zero issues = :) Steyr owner

    Re: Frame question


    Weird. Mine is 46XXX, so somewhere within 6000 pistols, they swapped slide tooling marks. That's odd, to say the least..
