Pistol "Shteyr M" (Steyer M), Austria

Modern armory development - a pistol of the company "Steyr-Mannliher" of the 40th caliber. Excellent condition, in a plastic branded case.
The weapon is deactivated, Russian permitting documents are attached.

The Steyr M pistol was developed by the famous Austrian company Steyr-Mannlicher in 1999. In parallel with the pistols Steyr M were produced and pistols Steyr S, characterized by a shortened barrel and handle.

However, at the end of 2003, the release of these pistols was discontinued, and since January 2004, a modified version of the pistol, the Steyr M-А1, went into production. The new gun differs from its predecessor in a slightly modified shape of the handle and frame, as well as a number of other minor improvements.

Pistols of a series Steyr M - one of the best on ergonomics in the class. A very well-designed handle has an ideal angle of inclination in 111 degrees, which, in combination with a low-mounted barrel, allows good control of the recoil of the weapon during high-speed shooting. Unusual sights and fuse require some getting used to. However, after becoming very comfortable, providing high accuracy and safety in handling.

Pistols Steyr M built on the basis of automation using the recoil energy in the short course of the barrel. For unlocking, the barrel is reduced by the interaction of the figure cut in the tide under the barrel with the elements of the frame. With the gate, the barrel engages with one massive protrusion entering the window for ejection of the sleeves on the gate.

The frame of the gun is made of impact-resistant plastic, under the barrel on the pistols Steyr M there is a branded guide for accessories, and on the pistols Steyr M-А1 there is a standard guide like Picatinny. Trigger mechanism - shock, double action.

The fuse system includes two automatic fuses - one on the trigger, the second - blocking the firing pin. In addition, there is a built-in lock, controlled by a separate key. When locking the lock, located on the frame on the right, above the trigger guard, the pistol is completely blocked.

The manual fuse is activated by simultaneously pressing two buttons on both sides of the frame, above the trigger guard. At the same time in the opening of the trigger guard button appears off the fuse, and the trigger is locked.

To turn off the fuse when opening fire, you must use your index finger to push up the button located in front of the trigger. The standard sights have an unusual shape - the front sight has a triangular cross section, and the rear sight has a trapezoid cutout.

Since both the front sight and the rear sight are mounted on the bolt in the grooves of the “dovetail” type, it is possible to replace them with others, including traditional types of open sights.

    You can understand that the tram allows for the possibility of modernization in a firearm?

      in most injuries in the trunk there is a special influx (protrusion). the rubber bullet of the injury flies without problems (since it can be deformed). but the lead bullet will get stuck and in the best case there will be a bulging of the barrel, and so it may break the barrel. So for alteration of trauma under a live cartridge you need to at least change the barrel.

    In the history of the domestic rubber barrel, this wonderful unit appeared, in a very small batch, at the price of a cast-iron bridge, all the specimens were taken literally for a month or two) And there were reasons for this — one of the best ergonomics among pistols, one of the most advanced traumatic cartridges at that time domestically developed (10X28), a wonderful performance of parts in a compartment with high-quality materials. The barrel is very, very good, the Austrians know a lot about weapons, they do not have much different view of weapons, sometimes extravagant (not so much the French, but not like the Germans), but for part of a very interesting and it is dictated by the appropriate requirements)
    Sometimes this model is compared with glock pistols, they say the identity is Austria, for me this device is not much from another path, it is more beautiful)))

    Ours can also, but we are designed for mass production (low cost with loss of quality), and they have individual weapons

      Not quite so, the Austrians made spot production cheap, the same Austrian Glocks, not licensed copies, namely the very, very massive trunks, but the fit is perfect. This is the same picture) Styer is a gun adopted not only by the police and army Austria itself but also a number of foreign countries, although there are not many of them)

    In 1999, the Austrian company Steyr Mannlicher introduced the new Steyr M series pistol, created by the talented designer and avid fan of bullet shooting Wilhelm Bubits.

    For some time before working with Steyr-Manlicher, Bubits worked for the company. Glock GmbHwhere he created a gun of his own design. However, it turned out that the gun did not meet Glock's corporate design requirements and in 1997, Bubits offered his Steyr weapon. Bubits' partnership with Steyr was significantly more successful. Improving his gun, the designer worked for two years with engineer Friedrich Einer, who also contributed to the creation of this weapon.

    I liked the gun.
    Very easy incomplete disassembly. For cleaning and lubrication in 3 movements, it is very convenient to disassemble the gun.
    Put a plus sign to the author for the gun. :)

    The trunk is interesting. Ergonomics are captivating in appearance. With this gun, as with most others, the only key point is price-quality.

    Well, ergonomics, of course, yes, but the little buttons are too much for a gun ...

    Great gun and not at all expensive. One of the best that I had to see and shoot (a friend gave). Very good, just super (shot at 9 Luger). The fitting of parts is perfect ... And the cost in the American and Canadian markets is about 500-600 dollars. The barrel sits so low that there’s simply nowhere to go below, it doesn’t jump when fired, the recoil goes clearly into the hand. In a word ... An excellent example of modern short-barreled weapons.

    If he is so good, why did they stop production?
