Thanks Auburn, I love that catalog!

I might just have to spring for the P7M8, I had one and sold it over 10 years ago and of course wish I hadn't. I can't believe that this has been discontinued, it is one of the best handgun designs ever, IMHO.

End of an Era

Wow,

CDNN no longer carrying Steyr M-series pistols, that dates alot of us. I just hope that in the not-to-distant future that CDNN pulls in some A1s like they did the M-series and offers them for less than $300.00, but maybe I'm dreaming.

Thanks for the heads-up on the new catalog! It's my understanding that their last M9 was sold either just before or right as their last catalog (2005-5) was coming out. It was a couple months ago.

I don't think we'll see any A1s in there for a while! Did they ever have any S-series? I don't remember seeing any.

Yes, my S9 was my first Steyr and I bought that from CDNN back in May 05 for $249 with 1 mag. I absolutely loved it and then bought the M9 when the price had gone up to $279 but included 1 x 10-round and 1 x 14-round mag.

Now I regret not buying 2 more of each as spares. I think the M-A1 design looks so bulky with the light rail. The M-series is about the size of a Glock 19 and as such it really is a CCW gun which IMHO doesn't need the extra thickness of a light rail. But this gun has to be all things to all people so I understand them including it.

I *really* hope they don't put the light rail on the S-A1 but since Glock/XD/HK have them on their subcompacts, I'm sure it will be there in all its bulkiness.

the day that happens will be a sad day cause that will mean steyr just liquidated all its pistols and parts; sure you will get a good pistol at a excellent price but support will be gone for good.
I agree. The deal CDNN got was for hundreds (thousands?) of pistols that were being discontinued. If we see this deal again, then the age of Steyr is dead.

As usual, Mr. A is right on. I heard the rumor was that CDNN had something like 4,000-6,000 M and S series pistols from the previous importer.

Well,

Not every pistol CDNN sell is discontinued is it? I mean correct me if I'm wrong here, but seems like they sell alot of pistols that are still available for sale through most distributors? If they could buy a huge order in bulk of Steyr A1 seems like they could get a deal on them and offer it to John Q Public for a low price (ala Walmart).

CDNN buys closeouts.
All of the products are either
Overstock
Discontinued model or version.




Some distributors will still have stock because it may have been a slow mover. or they got a special buy and then CDNN purchased the balance in bulk.
