I recently had an opportunity to examine a couple of these. The sights are nothing short of amazing and are exceedingly kind to middle-aged eyes. The angled grip gave me pause until I held it, and then I was pleased to no end with how the pistols felt in my hand. And then it came to me, despite the almost Star Trek phaser-ish looks of the pistol, what it actually is, is the second coming of the Luger. It holds like a Luger, the sights are reminiscent of the old WW1 era gun. I wonder that these Steyrs are not more popular, I imagine they would also exhibit the P-08's accuracy and they have that famous pistol's natural pointing ability as well, and they are far simpler to field strip and clean. The M-A1 series should become popular as they outshine most other modern polymer pistols in almost every way. They do what the others do, only better, and for old guys like me, they have a familiar nostalgic feel in the hand and incredibly easy to aquire sights. And one more thing, unlike other pistols of this generation, they are attractive, in a sci-fi sort of way, as they are linear, streamlined and feel like a proper pistol in your hand, instead of like a brick. Of all the polymer pistols I've held, I like this one the best, it really does remind me of the Luger in all the most positive ways.
