Steyr Arms has announced the introduction of the new C9-A1 pistol, which bridges the gap between a compact carry and full-sized shootability. With its concealable-length slide and barrel of the S-series Steyr pistol, and the hand-filling frame and high capacity of the M-series, the C9-A1 provides the best of both worlds.
The new C9-A1 is nearly identical in form and function to other handguns in the Steyr line—the M-A1 full-size series with its 17-round magazine and the S-A1 compact series with its 3.6-inch barrel. The new C9-A1 also boasts the newly redesigned Reset Action System trigger mechanism that was introduced in December. Chambered exclusively in 9x19mm, the new C9-A1 is sure to be a big hit with Steyr pistol aficionados as well as those who are looking for a concealment handgun that provides comfortable ergonomics, low bore axis, remarkable safety features, amazing accuracy thanks to a consistently crisp break, and extreme reliability.
The C9-A1’s full-size polymer frame offers unparalleled ergonomics with a high grip and low barrel axis that 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 Picatinny rail on the frame’s dust cover provides availability 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.
