Steyr A1 Pistol Series

Product Review (submitted on September 27, 2016):

I previously had a 9mm but I wanted to try a 40 Cal. as I have large hands and I was able to purchase the S40A1 on sale a couple of weeks ago. I started using 180 gr. FMJ then went to 165 gr. JHP both of which produced serious recoil with fps of only 1035 or less. But then I tried a Liberty 40 Cal. 60gr., and an average of 1846 FPS for 5 rounds and what was amazing was the recoil was less than what I had experienced with my 9mm with a 125 Cal. JHP and larger.

I can't say enough about the S40A1's flawless action, splendid trigger pull, and accuracy especially with the reduced recoil out to 25 yard, and response time back on target was excellent I have been singing the praises of this weapon to anyone who will listen. Two words I would use to describe it are : FLAWLESS or EXCELLENT.
