Thanks to willing assistance from Scott O'Brien CEO of SAI, and to tenacity from John Amidon NROI of USPSA, and also to GM shooter Chuck Anderson (perhaps the prez-elect of Area 1?), and the ease in coordinating email from a lowly former Thai boxer, it pleases me to announce that all three of the MA1 series pistols are now on the official USPSA list of approved Production gun. http://www.uspsa.org/rules/production_list.php For IPSC, the pistol is simply listed as MA1 series, and has always been legal. The Steyr is a fine Production class gun, works equally well in IDPA, and I find it to be perfectly competitive in USPSA L-10 as well. It also works well at steel matches. The low bore axis is the magic ingredient, IMHO, but superior ergonomics help too. So Steyroids......get yer hind-ends to the range and join in the fun! Go Steyr!
