It seems to me that Steyrs are one of the most under rated handguns i can think of "even though im still pretty new to the gun world". I have a buddy in Wayne County and a local gun shop there has been running through them like hot cakes over the past couple of years. These handguns to me are some of the best feeling and unique looking i've seen, but i've yet to meet more than two other people who knows about them. The trap/hex sights take a bit of getting used to but they're awesome once you do, and the recoil is almost a distant memory


Not to ramble on to much give me your thoughts and opinons

Unfortunately, the only Steyr I have experience with is the Aug, which found itself priced around $3000 after the Clinton days.

In Phoenix, several city cops were charged with buying Augs at discount, and selling them to the public. A rather interesting violation of "privilege"!

Atomsk, you're from my ol' stompin' ground, but about 18 years late to run with the big dogs... Was a Golden Tornado.

Yeah the AUGs will still set you back a couple thousand but they are one of the holy grails of the steyr world. The M9-A1 & M40-A1 are some of the greatest ever and at a price of $350 from CDNN you cant beat the price


Hey Slabsides don't know if a West Jones Mustang such as myself can be associated with one of ya'll Dirty Naders LOL. Just kidding buddy


But back to the topic. I figured there would be more people wanting to get on the ole soap box cause everybody has a certain gun close to their heart that they feel doesn't get the glory it deserves. So lets keep the comments coming

massair,

When did you last calculate your location? I recently saw where the four corners marker is several miles from it's actual location. You may have to move. :)

I would probably say the Rossi 38 snubnose. you never hear a word about them, eventhough they are very accurate to 25yds straight out the box. they are nice little S&W copies.

They never were very popular and are long out of production under their old name, but a Springfield Armory P-9C 9mm is the most accurate handgun I own (I've never had any custom work or "tune-ups" on any of my handguns - just bone stock).

They were just a re-marked Witness or CZ (never was sure) but they (particularly the compacts) were one of the best feeling handguns I've ever picked up. Solid steel with wood panel grips made them old school in that regard and made them a really solid little chunk to hang on to.

I had one in .40 years ago that I sold to a buddy and I currently have one in 9mm that I've had for a few years now.

I like 'em.

+1 on that. I have one and it's been a good gun, albeit one that doesn't see daylight much. I put some crimson trace grips on it, and the wife uses it for her "dire straights" go-to gun. Dunno if she'd hit anyone, but that lil' light would keep 'em guessing!


On a side note, Atomsk, the first ever demonstration that I'm aware of for a fertilizer bomb was delivered to the WJ Mustang's posterior one night courtesy of a group of my peers back around '86. It cannot be proven that I was there, but the amount of noise and light produced was impressive....

The correct answer is: anything I'm carrying, because everyone will say "man, that guy needs a more accurate weapon..." Then someone else will buy it, and wala, it works much better!

I would say the most under rated guns are the FN line of handguns.I bought a FNP-40 and it has been flawless through several thousand rounds.I still don't know anyone else that owns one.Plus they are made in the good ole USA.

I've got a Mosquito, and have had zero problems with it so far. Several thousand rounds through it, and it has failed to fire twice. Both times with cheap ammo that came from the same box. Wasn't the guns fault, just crappy ammo....It may screw up today, but so far has been a fine gun. I keep it in the golf cart, mounted with a Fobus system. The *****, armadillos, and possums tremble at the sight of it....
