Introducing the Steyr L9-A1

Introducing the Steyr L9-A1

Steyr Mannlicher introduced its brand new Steyr L9-A1 at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The longest version of Steyr's pistol series, the L9-A1 features serrations on either end of the slide, a loaded chamber indicator located at the rear of the pistol, and a magazine release that can easily be transferred from the left side to the right by using a screwdriver. Chambered in 9mm, the L9-A1 comes with a 17-round magazine, while the .40-caliber version holds 12 rounds. The L9-A1 comes with no manual safeties — only a trigger safety — but comes with several internal drop safeties. Like all Steyr pistols, the L9-A1 includes an integral locking system, which prevents the gun from being used or loaded when activated. The L9-A1 will be available in the first quarter of 2013 and will retail for $560. Check out the video from SHOT Show.
