The Steyr pistol fulfills every demand in a modern handgun, including: interchangeable calibers, low profile slides, unique safety solutions, innovative triangular sights and a grip designed for the best pointing ability. Styer pistols set standards for safety, reliability and design, with perhaps one of the best out of the box triggers on the market. TRUGLO TFX night sights are an option always available for a Duty/EDC sidearm with every model.
The Steyr C-A1 striker-fired pistol is a compact, semi-automatic, double-action handgun available as the C9-A1 chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum (17-rounds) or the C40-A1 chambered in .40 Smith & Wesson (12-rounds).
The C-A1 is somewhat of a hybrid, combining the compact length of the Steyr S-A1 pistol with the full-size grip of the Steyr M-A1 pistol. The barrel of the C-A1 is 3.6" (91mm) long and provides a platform that is ideal for self-defense carry by offering a short overall weapon length while ensuring optimal grip control. An integrated Picatinny rail allows for simple mounting of a laser or light and slide-racking grooves on the back of the slide allow for a firm grip when manually operating the action.
