Last month we brough back Armslist.com conests and had a variety of great prizes!
Our Grand Prize winner received the Steyr Arms M9-A1 and shared his first impressions and pictures with us.
Included in the box was the Steyr M9-A1 itself, two 17 round magazines, lock and key, two tools used to operate the locking mechanism, and the instruction manual. When I took the Steyr out of the box the first thing I noticed was that the grip fit my hand like a glove. I've honestly never found a gun that has fit my hands so well and I've owned a variety of handguns over the years.
I absolutely love the trapezoidal sights on the Steyr. The design of the sight channel causes your eyes to naturally focus in the center at the tip of the triangle, allowing you to acquire your target faster than traditional three dot combat sights. I wasn't sure I would like the sights, but now that I've seen them in person I'm wishing I could buy this style of sights for some of my other handguns. The trigger on the Steyr beats the Glock trigger hands down, and is neck and neck with the Walther PPQ. I think the Steyr has a slight edge since the trigger feels better on my finger and operates a little more smoothly than the PPQ trigger.
I've only had the Steyr for a few days, but it's quickly becoming one of my favorite handguns. The trigger is smooth as butter, the sights are amazing, and the grip fits my hand like a glove. I'm considering selling my PPQ on Armslist.com and using the money to buy the Steyr SA-1, the compact version of the M9-A1.
