Steyr's New .40 Cal. Service Pistol Now Available

STEYR_L40-A1

Steyr Arms is now offering a .40 S&W version of its full-size L-A1 service pistol to the U.S. market.

The L40-A1 is a striker-fired pistol that features a full-length slide, 4.5-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel and 12-round magazine capacity for .40 S&W.

“The new L40-A1 is nearly identical in form and function to the L9-A1 and other handguns in the Steyr line, which combine unparalleled ergonomics, a low bore axis, remarkable safety features, extreme reliability and amazing accuracy—thanks to a consistently crisp trigger break and short, distinct reset,” Steyr officials maintain.

“The L40-A1’s full-size polymer frame offers a high grip that places the barrel axis lower in the hand to mitigate muzzle rise, while creating a perfect grip angle and a very natural point of aim.”

The drift-adjustable sights are in the Steyr’s intuitive trapezoidal configuration, and a Picatinny rail on the frame’s dust cover provides a mounting position for illumination and laser-aiming devices.

The integrated trigger safety within the recently redesigned Reset Action System trigger requires positive finger pressure to operate Steyr’s double-action-only mechanism. This striker-fired pistol also incorporates a keyed safety lock.

The suggested retail price of the Steyr L40-A1 pistol is $560.
