New Steyr High-Capacity C9-A1

Combines the concealable-length slide and barrel of the S-series Steyr pistol with the hand-filling frame and high capacity of the M-series.


TRUSSVILLE, AL — Steyr Arms recently announced a new C9-A1 pistol. This semi-auto bridges the gap between compact carry and full-sized shootability by combining the concealable-length slide and barrel of the S-series Steyr pistol with the hand-filling frame and high capacity of the M-series.

The new C9-A1 is nearly identical in form and function to other handguns in the Steyr line, but also boasts the newly redesigned Reset Action System trigger mechanism. Chambered exclusively in 9x19mm, the new C9-A1 is sure to be a big hit with Steyr pistol aficionados as well as those looking for a concealable handgun providing comfortable ergonomics, low bore axis, remarkable safety features, amazing accuracy, and extreme reliability.

The C9-A1’s high grip combined with its low barrel axis mitigates muzzle rise as well as creating a perfect grip angle for a very natural point of aim. The drift-adjustable sights are in the traditional three-dot configuration and a accessory rail on the frame’s dust cover provides for mounting illumination and laser-aiming devices. The integrated trigger safety with the newly redesigned Reset Action System trigger requires positive finger pressure to operate the double-action-only mechanism. This striker-fired pistol also incorporates a keyed safety lock. The barrel is cold-hammer forged with conventional rifling, and the chamber is fully supported.

The suggested retail price of the C9-A1 is $649.
