    10 round mags ftl. I'm trying to decide if it is worth it switching to the 12 rounders.

    I wish someone would make night sites in their patterns.

    Awesome ergos -- superior sights.

    However, $400 is kinda high.

    I love Steyrs, especially the M357. Great guns.

    You dingbat. Why didn't you tell me you were going to buy one? The new MA1 style is $349 from CDNN, NIB.

    Manual safety is hot, though..

    Manual safety would be nice.

    BTW, Steyrs are ugly.

    Manual safetys are pointless unless you have a SAO gun and carry it.

    How do you like it? I am tossing around the idea of a M40 or M40-a1. I don't really think I'll be mounting a light so the rail isn't an issue. I'm not sure how big a deal the textured grip would be for me. I guess new or old comes down to the manual safety, which I would honestly prefer. Does anyone know why they started the A1 with a manual safety option and then stopped offering it?

    Anyone got the link to the CDNN A1 version?

    I don't use a light either so its not huge deal. I've never handled an a1 but I like this.

    I think they did some slight changes on the grip ergonomics, textured the grip, changed it to a picatinny rail and after a few early imports did away with the manual safety, but that's it no change to the mechanics of the gun itself.

    edit: one other question do you use it for carry any? I'm been tossing around the idea of a polymer gun for a while and the steyr has caught my eye, I'm just wondering how it would be for carry at least in cooler weather.

    Even if I could carry, not sure if the Steyr would be my choice. It's a little large for me.

    That's why you would get a Steyr S-A1. :p
