    this month's Gun World gave it a great review :kdubb:

    and the reason I'm attracted to the Steyr pistols is the same reason I like Glocks.. they have a utilitarian, function-over-form look to em.

    all business, no bullshit :cool:

    I'm actually thinking about getting one of these. I don't think they're ugly at all -- I really like the look.

    Yeah, but how do they shoot? I've never had a chance to shoot one. The looks are all that bad. :dunno:

    Steyr was willing not to sell to Iran but the U.S. gov declined there off. What about a Saiga, VEPR, chicom ak or sks? They were all selling them to our enemies in the past. Steyr is also under different managment then it was back when they sold them.

    They made an offer not to sell if they would be allowed to sell to U.S. public.

    Getting upset about Steyr selling rifles to people we dont like is the same reasoning gun-grabbers use when they try to sue gunmakers if their products are used in a crime.

    And this is an okay thing to do? They straight up threatened us that if we did not allow their rifles into the US, the same rifles would be sold to Iran. With the implied possibility that these rifles would make their way into the hands of Iraqis who would use them to shoot at US and coalition troops.

    Sure, they can sell to whoever the fuck they want just like mzmtg says. In the end, the bad guys will always find something to shoot at us with.

    What really pisses me off is the fact that Steyr used Iran as leverage to try to get their rifles into the US. Gun control in the US is something that the US voters and political system will decide on, and I am not open to any other country's (or company's) input on the issue.

    I think the sale happend back in 03 when there wasn't that much of an insurgancy yet. Dunno doesn't really bother me if I was running an arms company I'd sell to just about anyone who had the money. :o

    Quid pro quo.

    Don't really see the problem. They did exactly as the United States would have in the same situation.
