    When I read the sky was falling, I googled a bit for Steyr news today.

    First, that encouraging Czech news story about the Steyr arms company landing a big contract for APCs that will keep it out of bankruptcy? Wrong company. That's the former parent company of Steyr-Mannlicher, Steyr-Daimler-Puch (I think still a division of Mercedes, but not sure).

    So good news for Steyr-Daimler-Puch, but doesn't affect Steyr-Mannlicher.
    Guess we can say the "Czech" is in the mail for Steyr-Daimler-Puch, but not for Steyr-Mannlicher.8-O

    Here's another news brief with a bit of history on the two companies:
    Then here's another news brief from Reuters I found about Steyr arms:
    Couldn't find anything about Steyr pistol production, but maybe the sky ain't falling after all. Maybe. Who knows? :-({|=

    Not sure if that last bit of news is good or not regarding the relocation to Malaysia for cheaper labour no doubt. Like buying any other product 'ASSembled" in Mexico.

    Maybe Steyr will be the Dan Wesson of Europe, in and out of bankruptcy numerous times.
