I took the NIB M40-A1 with me on this week's business trip. Today, I had the opportunity to take it to the range for a little work out. When I stopped at Wal-mart, they were out of the WWB but had Remington 100-count in stock so I bought two boxes of it. It wasn't until I got to the range that I realized the Remington 100-count was JHP ammo... Oh well, what better workout to determine reliable function. The M40-A1 performed flawlessly through all 200 rounds. The trigger didn't seem as nice as those on my M40 and M357, but I expect it to smooth out more with use. Another difference is the trapeziod sights. My other Steyrs have conventional night sights. One interesting discovery I found, was the shot grouping between firing slow fire versus fast fire. When shooting slow fire -- trying to use the tip of the triangle for accuracy, my groupings were respectable at 1.5 - 2.0 inches at 10 yards. However, when I shifted into faster "combat" fire (shoot - quick reset - back on target - shoot - etc.) my groupings were consistently tighter -- at 1.5" or less at 10 yards. I guess there is something to the training topic of "looking for your hits" causing less tighter groups... :? Overall, I am well pleased with the new M40-A1 -- I definitely prefer the grip of the A1 as compared to the original M-series.
