TRUSSVILLE, Ala.-(Ammoland.com)- Steyr Arms has announced the availability of the new full-size L-A1 service pistol to the U.S. market.

Originally introduced last year at the IWA Outdoor Classics Show in Nuremburg, Germany, high demand from the American market has brought the the L-A1 pistol here.

Featuring a full-length slide, 4.5-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel and 17-round magazine capacity for its 9x19mm Luger chambering and 12 rounds for .40 S&W and .357 SIG versions, the new L-A1 service pistol is ideal for the U.S. market. The Steyr L-A1 was designed to serve the dual role of a duty and sporting handgun.

The new L-A1 is nearly identical in form and function to other handguns in the Steyr line, which combine a comfortable fit, a low bore axis, remarkable safety features, extreme reliability and amazing accuracy—thanks to a consistently crisp trigger break. The L-A1’s full-size polymer frame offers unparalleled ergonomics with 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 L-A1 incorporates a newly designed loaded chamber indicator that sits flush in the rear of the slide when the chamber is empty and is raised slightly when the chamber is loaded for a visual and tactile indicator of the firearm’s condition. Also new on the L-A1 is a reversible magazine release that is easily swapped for right- or left-handed shooters.

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 the L-A1’s remarkable double-action-only mechanism. This striker-fired pistol also incorporates a keyed safety lock. The barrel is cold-hammer forged with conventional rifling, and the chamber is fully supported.

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