My ASG Steyr M9-A1 Non-Blowback CO2 BB pistol arrived today. Right off the bat this air gun reminds me a lot of my Umarex H&K USP that I reviewed a while back. It actually has some very Umarex like traits including the safety switch, magazine design and the way the internal barrel moves forward as you pull the trigger and then snaps back acting as the hammer.
Like the USP, the Steyr has a polymer frame and slide but it is hard to tell the slide is not metal as the gun does have good overall weight and the slide finish looks just different enough from the frame finish to pull of the illusion. It fooled me at first, I even had to tap it with a metal key to be sure!
Over the ASG Steyr M9-A1 is a good looking gun with what looks to be very usable fiber optic sights and slightly heavy yet predictable trigger.
