    Hey dudes, new to this forum..I recently looked at the Steyr M-A1 in 40 S&W. I don't have a 40 and I am considering this as my next purchase. I found one at the local gun shop for $499.00+Tax the shop manager said they are awesome pistols. The gun felt great in my hand and this gun seemed well worth the $499 price tag. I am a big Ruger and Sig Sauer fan.... however I am not fond of Glocks...this Steyr seemed like a better overall carry weapon that the Glock...any info is apprecaited :wink: :wink: :wink:

    MA1

    I bought mine in early May on line+FFL+shipping was $479 total. There are numerous range reports in the forums. Low bore axis, half the trigger pull of a stock Glock, accurate the MA1 is a pleasure to shoot. The only questionable side is the trap sights- most either love'm or hate'm not many in between, stick with them they'll grow on ya.

    Good Luck

    The M40A1 is an EXCELLENT choice, but don't pay $499+tax for it. Order it online - it will take like 3 days to get and you will have saved enough on the purchase to get a decent holster or a few boxes of ammo.

    it may not be much less with dealer transfer fee
    may save enough for a magazine or two depending on the price.
    cdnninvestments still has 10 round mags for $10
    can find normal cap mags for $20-$25 but got shipping

    All MA1 series guns should be available with standard capacity magazines.
    The 10 round "packaging" was just recently introduced for those states that still have a ban on anything over 10 rounds.


    BTW, at this time prices seem to have stabalized on the MA1's. There was a time when the 9mm was around $25.00 less than a 40 and a 357 was $10.00 more. Now my distributor has all 3 at the same wholesale.

    CDNN has them right now for $339 plus $23 shipping to your FFL. Just bought one this weekend. FFL transfer fee should be less then $25 one way or you are getting ripped off. I am a FFL and charge $20 one way and $35 for handling a two way trade. I bought the 40 s&w.

    I'm new to the Steyr firearm as well. I bought one yesterday for 369.99 in a local gun store.

    I just bought a M40-A1 last week... at Cabela's. What a pretty gun...I like the grip feels better than a glock. I'm impressed and look forward to shooting in the near future...I have a box of Law Enforcment rounds just begging to be shot..

    That is where I got my M9-A1. By the time I would have paid CDNN I got off cheaper.

    I got an M9-A1 2 weeks ago for $349 + $22 shipping to my FFL from CDNN with 2 15-round mags. They appear to be shipping now with 1 mag, but you can ask if you call them.
