Ok I picked up my Steyr M9-A1 this afternoon from a local SteyrClub member. The date code is: GOM (July 2005 ?)He claimed only 200 rounds have been thru the gun. If he had not told me I would have figured less if the barrel is a good indicator. The gun looks like new. This gentleman obviously takes care of his stuff. No wear or scuffs on the frame or slide. Came with everything in the case...even a blank warranty card. Just fantastic condition! Today was the first time I ever put a Steyr pistol in my hands and I have to say I like the feel of it quite a bit. I am also impressed with the overall design and build quality of this firearm. If it shoots half as good as it looks then I have a winner here. I also got in the deal not one, not two, but three new holsters specifically made for this pistol. It came with two Desantis holsters and a FIST holster that is just awesome. I really have no complaints and it was $$$ well spent. I hope to go shoot this weekend. He also included a 100 rounds of WWB range ammo just because he wanted to. I have to say thanks to all of you for the great info on this site and for the responses to my earlier questions!
