i dont have a m40 but i have an m9...i must tell you i love mine but it is very hard to get any parts for the steyrs because of the import thing. its a good gun just make sure you shop because at my local gun shop they are going for bout 450 and a couple places online they go for 300....shop around and find a good price...the sights take a bit of getting used to but after a while it is very fast to sight in a target, only problem with the sights is that at about 50 ft the front sight is too large to accurately hit a small target....good functioning gun, reliable, and great craftsmanship.hope i helped a bit

good gun I have 4 of them 2 M9 and 2 M40. accurate.

limited accessories. parts are availible from steyrarms.com
steyrarms has 2 locations one in Georgia and the other in Mississippi. they have recently setup. parts availibility is better than 2 years ago. company had other people do import and warranty and had issues to top it off BMW kicked them out of a building and at that time Steyr in Austria was suffering some flooding.

www.steyrclub.com where steyr owners hang out.
$400 is good price on the newer MA1 series wouldnt go over $450. bluebook is some $550 for MA1 series original M is $600. liquidation occured when the 2 former importers quit could find M and S series for $300-$350 those days are coming to a end if you can find one under $375 it may be worth it. warranty service has been very accomidating some people with old M or S series which are out of warranty date getting replaced with new MA1 series.

original M and S series discontinued but MA1 uses same parts except polymer frame. new SA1 coming out soon. S series go closer to blue book than anything else $400-$500.

fully supported chambers. lower bore axis than pretty much any other gun. no metal pins through the polymer no pin punch to take the polymer/metal frame apart. replaceable frame rails. easy to clean.

it would be nice if they made GB magazines still. hard to find and expensive when found.

Thanx for the info. Ditto on the GB mags. When I bought my gun it came with 4 of them. But I never see them for sale.

Just read today that Steyr/Mannlicher has sold the Iranians 800 (that is not a typo) of their HS50 sniper rifles. This is Steyr's version of the .50 cal. rifle.

The fear is that since Iran is a significant source of the materials used in construction of IEDs, that many of these rifles will end up in Iraq as well.

Truthfully, I wasn't contemplating purchase of any of their products, but they are on my official sh!]list and will never see any of my dollars.
