As a couple of you know, I just recently bought a Steyr S40-A1 last week when I was lucky enough to find just one shop in town that had a Styer and luckily it was just what I was looking for: an S40-A1. But enough chit chat, on to how the Steyr did this weekend! I went to the range Saturday with the expectations of this gun being finicky, especially during break-in and had no hopes of it acting like my go anywhere, do anything Sig P226. I was prepared for racking, ejecting, fiddling, who knows what?! Well, 100+ rounds later I can report that I had 0 misfires, 0 failure to extract/eject, 0 failures to go into battery, 0 anything! And what's more, even though this gun is only about 2/3 the size of the P226, it's just as accurate and gives that same confidence inspiring weight and grip that the bigger gun does. The sight takes some getting used to for sure, but I realized after a bit that the only thing I was really sighting for was the vertical. The horizontal always naturally fell into place with the triangle for whatever reason, so I eventually got the hang of it. Sadly I don't have pictures of the targets, but from my third series of 10 on, I was getting about 4-5 inch clusters at 7 yards. I only shot a series of 20 from 15 yards and was REALLY surprised to see that my cluster only grew a couple of inches. Bottom line: If you ever had doubts of getting a Steyr because it's "touchy" or because it's "high maintenance", just get the dang gun. You are missing out on a hidden gem. It plays hard so long as it's taken care of at the end of the day, just like any other gun. In the end, I couldn't be happier to own a Steyr!
