BOGs, I'm considering swapping my G19 for a Steyr M-A1 (http://www.steyr-mannlicher.com/index.php?id=644)
Should or shouldn't I?

My other option is to sell my G19 and get a G26.

I need help on these..thanks

The features Steyr has that Glock doesn't have:

1. Conventional Rifling (Negligiable decrease in accuracy but you can use lead bullets more)

2. Better grip angle.

3. Triangular sights.

I've tried both the Glock and the Steyr M-A1 and honestly, there's not much of a noticable different except probably for the grip. IMO, the Steyr's grip is better.

If the Steyr fits your hand better, if you can shoot it more easily, and if you can find a well-stocked local source for Steyr parts and accessories (holsters, magazines, springs, and other wear and tear replacement items), then go for the Steyr. Otherwise, if there's nothing wrong with the G19 and you want to buy another gun "just because," then I'll echo St. Matthew's suggestion: keep the G19 and save up for the G26 :)

The Steyr, i saw sa Aquila Firearms looked good though..Na-tempt lang yata ako. Must draw on the powers of the Dark Side some more..

Oh well! I'll save for another glock nalang and keep my G19 :-)

Thanks!

Sila Deenoh ang dealer dito satin ng steyr...and i would assume that parts and accessories won't be a problem at all. i'm also contemplating on buying a steyr for carry ung 40 not the 9m though...parang nakakasawa na ang dating ng glock eh :)

Deenoh,

pwede ba pa test fire? :supergrin:

SMB, open na yun range! Bring your friends over and try it out. We've expanded the place. I'll post a pic of the new range at our site probably tomorrow if I get the time.

Kristiansen, yup. The extra magazines are here.

Pwede sumama, wag lang marami ha :) We might not fit inside the range.

on my case, i wouldnt put my trust on new with minimal review guns. i'll still go with my glock and my HK kasi, subok ko na talaga. steyrs i believe were just recent, right?
before i get a new gun, i also try to read the reviews by buyers, history of the product and i also ask gun store salesmen here before i spend for it.

i think steyr has been around for quite some time na, diba popular nga yung bullpup steyr aug rifle nila. yung pistol i think at least 5 years na. yung desiners galing yata sa glock dati and improved ergonomics kasi yung grip nakalubog sa kamay kaya better recoil handling.

The Steyr pistol has been around since early 2000. The design, Bubits, first approached Glock with the design for the Steyr M pistol but was rejected by Glock due to Bubits' design since IIRC Glock reasoned that there was no need to change Glock's design. Bubits instead went to Steyr Mannlicher and developed the M series pistol with them.

I STAND CORRECTED, BUT MY STORY IS NEAR NA DIBA. ANYWAY I THINK RECOIL CONTROL WOULD BE BETTER BECAUSE IT WOULD SIT LOWER IN THE HAND.

Correct mtho. I think the new Smith and Wesson M&P also shares a grip profile as the Steyr.

i guess wala pang store na nag oofer ng trade in scheme at kung mag karon man stores would find it difficult to re sell trade in fire arms.

Few things I like about the Steyr pistols over Glocks are the following:

1) Receiver's construction. You'd notice that all four rails are part of one, solid integral unit. It's actually a steel gun wrapped in polymer.

2) Low bore axis. It means faster recoil recovery for most of us. Though subjective, it points instinctively well too. The hand melts into the pistol, he he.

3) Manual safety configuration. Personally, this is what I consider the single most important advantage of the design. Not everybody knows how to off-safe the darn thing fast enough when handling it the first time.

All these plus the now-ubiquitous accessory rail, ala-Glock trigger, drop-safe design, sturdy finish, and the nice trapezoidal sights. It shoots where it looks in tight groups once you understand the sight configuration.

My only beef with it is the height of the slide. It seems way too narrow to provide enough leverage for some females with weak arm strength to fully and positively cycle the slide. Other than that, it's an excellent pistol.

PS. I don't work for Deenoh and do not receive commissions.:supergrin: It's just my impression of a friend's Steyr S9.

It seems the cutout and recessed portions (dimples) at the bottom of the grip area also make it easier to rip out a magazine in case of a malfunction.

How do you rate the Walther P99 against the G19 and the Steyr?

walther is right up there with glock and steyr

steyr has been making the pistols since 1999 though they replaced the polymer frame year or year and half ago.

S series is better for concealment. S series is not SA1 availability is tough at moment in the states.

conventional rifling and accuracy. number of steyr owners have discovered what fun it is to shoot at 50 and 100 yards with and do pretty damn good for 4" barrel. 40sw version is pretty accurate it can get boring shooting these if your skilled due to easy trigger. short crisp 4-5lbs short reset. accuracy can be right up there with a good match/target 1911
