Well, it’s about time. Steyr Mannlicher has finally re-introduced their M-Series pistol. This newly-released version is called the M-A1. The Steyr M-A1 Series pistol has been modified/upgraded with a few changes, like an M1913 Picatinny rail frame/dustcover (for mounting a quick-attach/detach tactical white light or laser sight), redesigned grip, and optional manual safety mounted above the trigger guard. The new Steyr M-A1 pistol retains Steyr’s proprietary triangular/trapezoid fixed sights.

The Steyr M-A1 pistol is currently available in 9mm, 40 S&W, 9x21mm and .357 SIG (on request). Magazine capacity for 9mm and 9x21mm is 14 rounds. Mag capacity for .40 S&W and .357 SIG is 12 rounds.

Steyr Mannlicher has yet to…

re-introduce the S-Series subcompact pistol. According to the Steyr Mannlicher website, the Steyr S-Series will be available in 2005.
