    Ok, I just purchased a S9-A1 and I have placed an order for the new A2 MF, but it appears those won't be in anytime soon. My local FFL says Steyr Arms USA doesn't even have a date when more of those guns will be imported. This brings me to my question as I am new to these pistols and the Steyr bug has bitten me hard ! I want to purchase another pistol and have found a NIB C9-A1 locally for 449.00 and see the M9-A1's for about 50.00 to 100.00 dollars more online. (not including shipping and transfer fee ) Which one would you experienced Steyr owners suggest and do any of you folks have both and what are your thoughts on what I should put my sights on next ??

    Thanks

    I'll say that I love my M9. It is just the right size for and hits the perfect balance when it comes to size. That being said... $550 seems like a lot for a M9-A1, I might shop around a bit and i bet you can find one for closer to that $450 mark.

    I have a m9a1 and a m40a1. Also, a 357 sig conversion barrel for the m40a1. I would actually look for a m40a1 used and get conversion barrel for 9mm. more fun with 1 gun.
