Good Morning!

After 5 years of using a Glock 17 and then 15 years of using a SIG-220 it was time to buy a new gun. And my choice was a Steyr M9-A1. I really don't now why, but it was love at first sight...

Now I have one and because it was at discount at my local dealer, it like to know how old it is.

The serial number is 3009XXX and besides of the other markings on the slide it is written "BOD".

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Greg

PS: And of course I will deliver you a range report. Hopefully I have time on Saturday to introduce my new pistol to the range.

Greg! Welcome to the forum!

You're from Switzerland! That's awesome!

Also quite crazy to hear that you replaced your Sig with a Steyr. Switzerland is a very cool place with their philosophies on firearms and pride in them.

Well, much has happened since I bought my first pistol 20 years ago... The gun control law has changed very much, so it's much more inconvenient to get a gun or even effective self defense ammunition. Hollow point? Forget it! But on the other hand: Switzerland is such a peaceful place - who really needs a Silvertip, Hydra-Shok or Gold Dot...

The SIG P220 (Pistole 75) was my service gun in the army. It's now quite worn out and I never was happy with the small number of rounds in the magazine and the lack of a magazine release button.

So, Steyr is the gun to go!

But one never knows what the future might hold, and how available arms and ammunition would be in a time of crisis... Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
