    After some 6 months the extended barrel arrived from the factory via Steyr USA today.

    Nice work and threading 130mm length if I recall. Soon it will be mated with a TROS can and a range report will be forthcoming.
    I will advise if Steyr will be stocking these in the next day or so and if not what steps anyone who wants one will need to take.

    Please post pictures when you get a chance. What's the price on those, and where can I get one? Also, can you get a thread protector for it? What calibers does it come in? I'd be interested in getting one for my M9A1.

    If you could do a 90 degree limp wrist test (firing down) and let me know if it cycles properly, i'd be very greatful.

    All- Anyone who is interested in obtaining on please contact
    Jack Riddle

    [email protected]

    He was my contact as has stated he will order them for those interested.Mention you are part of the Steyr club for special pricing .
    USA does not keep these in stock yet but he will order one for you with advance payment as he did for me. He was not aware it was even available in the system until I got one of my EU contacts to verify its existence.

    Just heard back from Jack with the new price.

    $241.33 plus shipping.

    This is about what Jarvis and BARSTO charged me to do a new extended and threaded barrel for both SIG pieces.

    Very nice! Do you already have the can? If so, any way you could post a video and make the rest of us insanely jealous?

    I seem to recall the price being a lot less (~$150?) back when this was initially announced? Am I wrong on that?

    Syntax- You are correct on the $154.price in April when I first mentioned it to the group..............6 mos later it has gone up $100.

    The dollar to Euro is about the same............go figure.

    I will have the M1A in 9mm shortly as I presently own the .40cal and liked it so much I had to have one in 9mm and hence ordered the extended barrel for my TROS can. Once I get it up and complete I will do some jpegs and mpegs and a full range report in comparison to my other 9mm weapons with cans.

    M1A WITH TROS CAN ATTACHED

    Guys- Here is a shot of the TROS can installed. Please be advised that the platform is the .40 cal . That being said I did not lock in down into battery for fear of the lug locking and having a problem child.

    This is 99% of what the pistol in 9mm looks like.

    Any questions please advise.

    Any chance to get a thread protector or a flash hider for it?? I don't necessarily want the silencer, but extended barrel + protector will look sweet.

    Thread protectors are easy to come by.........that alot of money t ospend on a barrel in my opinion for just looks.........go for a suppressor.

    That extra money spent will half way buy a second gun............

    IGB Austria has 3 compensators available, as well as, barrels and customizing available in the custom barrel category. I did not read anything about thread protectors.

    You can also select Euro or US Dollar for price comparison. http://WWW.IGBAustria.com

    I contacted Jack Riddle via Email and he sent me the same basic info, except, did not mention a time frame, length listed was 115mm, nor did he know thread count.

    I am guessing 1/2 x 28 for your can.

    I sent you a PM Derek.
