This Steyr GB, is a double-action 9×19mm Parabellum caliber, large-framed semi-automatic pistol employing a gas-delayed blowback action. As such the GB abbreviation stand for GasBremse (gas brake). It was designed in 1968, intended as a replacement for older handguns in Austrian military service.
Steyr GB, Gas-Delayed Blowback model, Very rare compensated blue 5 ¼” DA/SA semi-automatic Pistol & 4 magazines MFD circa 1980. About 20,000 were produced between 1980 & 1988, when production halted. The low serial number and the factory shipped muzzle break make this pistol very rare and valuable.
