    As a result of recent developments anyone decided to sell their Steyr(s) to avoid possibility of lack of service or parts in the future ?

    Just wondering....I 'still' have mine btw :)

    I am not selling, no way! But thinking about picking up a couple that are more rare, like M357A1 or another S9.

    I have a set of 4 and they are going no where but the safe for most parts.

    might pickup a couple liquidation models if I manage to scrape up money before they are gone doubt that will happen though. got alot of other more pressing projects.

    more interested in buying pair of S&W VE's and 1911's.

    I'm keepin' this hand cannon(M357-A1). Nothing feels as nice in hand as a M-A1. If a S9-A1 was on the California approved list I'd have one now, but only the S40-A1 is CA approved. :( I was thinkin' of tryin' to pick up a GB, but I don't see it on the CA approved list!

    Keeping mine as well.
    Called CDNN this morning hoping for an S-model but there are none to be had.
    Contacted SAI for reassurance on parts/service and learned that very few newer style S-models were imported and that the lot went to Davidsons so those are all long gone as well.
    Jeff(?) at SAI said he'll have a better handle on what the future holds far as parts and service NEXT WEEK but feels positive.
    Steyr USA will ship parts to licensed gunsmiths only due to liability issues.
    Learned quite a bit from him about why the newer guns aren't fitted with the drop safety and that the LCI may actually be causing ejection problems with higher power loads. Good stuff, nice guy!
    I like my M9 too much to get rid of it yet.
    Health, Peace

    sure you dont mean manual safety?
    drop safety in the sear is a pretty crucial part.

    if I was looking for new pistol M&P is good but M&P and Sigma's suffer from poor choice of construction and material on the strikers.
    otherwise good gun and S&W is tough to beat.

    like the LCI but the slide has quite a bit of holes in it. extractor design could use reworking. would reinforce the slide more.

    Have been looking into what the locals would pay for a gently used M9- Trade in averages about 200.00, one shop wouldn't even LOOK at it. Looks like I'm gonna keep her, but am picking up another (Glock27) to pound away with at the range.

    Yes Mr A, I meant the manual safety. I don't know the proper nomenclature of the part but someting made of plastic could wear over time, allowing the manual safety to drop down to "safe" right in the middle of a firefight for instance. Steyr did away with it rather than re-engineer out of more durable parts from what I understand.
    All the best,
    Steyrile

    I guess I didin't even think about the resale value now that the gun is only $350... Wouldn't make any sense to sell a gun for $200 when you paid $450-500 for it :roll:

    Not selling mine, nope , no way, nadda chance budro.

    Watch out Wulf, I have a maximum bid limit for that same tape. I got the first copy and it wasn't all that. It was called inside Harris Pilton. I was, like..... eeeeeew . TMI

  15. Nope,

    As of now SAI is still extending service and I can understand their policy on not selling parts.

    Until service stopped and it doesn't look like it will I would say it would be very premature to sell your pistol given the great service we have received as of late by SAI.

    In fact, I plan on purchasing more MA1s when they come down to $299.00 at CDNN.

    Simply put there is no replacement for the Steyr MA1 out there in my mind as it has superior natural point, limited recoil, and one of the best DAO triggers on the market.

    NEGATIVE! I've been very happy with my M9 and would like to have an S9 when I could afford it... Still a bit of a 'cult following' weapon if you know what I mean...
    uh, I don't mean following some cult arround with this baby so fugitabout it, ya know what I'm sayin...

    I've been away from the board here for a while and haven't heard what has happened. I have seen consistant ads for the Steyrs lately.

    Not a chance. I finally come across a weapon that fits and functions for me - picked up a companion S9 for my M9. I'll go out of my way to keep the Steyrs running. With CDNN offering M40's for $350 I'll be parking my G23 in the safe for a while.

    Hell no, would you sell a classic Studebaker because the company's long dead, a Kaiser, a Willys? No f**king way.

    Of course not. So why bail on a working product. Some of you people baffle me.

    Now that Steyr is owned by the guy that brought Starbucks to Austria and out of the hands of the idiot that has been running it for the last 6 years, I'm extremely hopeful about the future of Steyr in the US market.


    Keep your Steyr.
