So I've been glaring at a Steyr M40 for about a week at my local gunshop. A small shop with mostly shotguns. I've ran across some goodies here before, so I stop in as often as I can. I came across this Steyr, knew nothing about it, and have been looking for a nice composite piece and wanted nothing to do with Glock. Not that I don't like them, it's just they are like Civics, everyone has one. So after doing some research, mostly on here, I bought it today. It shows a manufacture date of 07/99 with a serial number of 0018xx. Not sure if it had the trigger work or not, I'll shoot it this weekend and decide whether or not I think it has. I'm very excited. I have a Beretta 9000 .40S&W and the Steyr feels like it was made for my hand. The Beretta by comparison is thick but too short for my pinky finger to fit the grip. Very impressed by the fit and finish. Here are some pics. By the way, nice site here.
