Hi from Reno, NV. I recently purchased a new Steyr M9-A1. Thanks to the information on the Steyr Club Forum, I know now it was made in July 2005. The pistol is a great shooter, but I am finding the trigger still a little gritty or sticky. I have placed about 500 rounds so far through the pistol. I must say the sights it came with are a little weird. I don't know if I will get accustomed to them. What do people recommend for replacements? Otherwise it is an excellent pistol and a bargin too considering how well it is made.
