Trigger Pull: The trigger pull weight on the ASG Steyr M9-A1 is pretty typical of a double action trigger in about the middle of the spectrum. The action of the real Steyr M9-A1 is also DOA (double action only) as it uses a hammerless striker-fired trigger setup.

Accuracy: I shot the ASG Steyr M9-A1 air pistol at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed respectfully, getting about a 2.5 inch grouping fairly close to the center of the target - just high and to the left. The rear sight is non-adjustable so if you find you shoot a bit off with this airgun then you will need to adjust your aim-point slightly. My Chrony testing with an eight shot averaged result was a very consistent 425 fps - right where the claimed manufacturer fps said it would be for this air pistol!

Build Quality: ASG has not let me down so far with their guns and the ASG Steyr M9-A1 is no exception. It may not be the most complex or have a bunch of metal parts, but it does get the job done and with a lot of style. The plastic/polymer parts look well-made and the airgun has good overall weight for being mostly plastic. Fit and finish is also very good.

Realism: The ASG Steyr M9-A1 BB shooter is a really close replica to the actual 9mm ASG Steyr M9-A1 semi auto 9mm pistol, the only real giveaway is the safety; a "real looking" one is moulded into the frame, but the actual usable safety (just below it) borrows from some other gun technologies and is a bit of a giveaway. Other than that the ASG Steyr M9-A1 with its Steyr licensing and trademarks looks pretty much bang on to the original pistol.


  • Excellent shot FPS consistency
  • Good power
  • Good CO2 efficiency - 7 magazines - 133 shots
  • Excellent quality control: very well made, fit and finish is excellent
  • Metal dropout magazine
  • Accessory rail for lasers and tactical lights
  • Believable Steyr M9A1 Replica
  • Really usable sights - Fiber optic in the back and white dot in the front!
  • Gun ergonomics are very nice - very modern looking gun


  • Trigger pull is a bit heavy and I found it may have affected my accuracy a bit
  • Mostly Polymer gun
  • Could have been a bit more accurate for me

Comments: The ASG Steyr M9-A1 air gun is really made to be a BB shooter and so it does it really well by getting consistently high fps and lots of shots per CO2, the fact that ASG was able to make it look so much like the real ASG Steyr M9-A1 is an added bonus and even better is that this gun will not break the bank. Sure, it's nice to have blowback, a full sized drop out magazine and lots of metal parts but then the extra price tag that goes along with the extras adds up and can make an airgun unobtainable for some. So if you're looking for an affordable really nice looking BB plinker you're going to get lots of good shots out of, the ASG Steyr M9-A1 may be just right for you!

Not quite, Try again

Owning a 9mm Steyr L9-A1 myself, I had hoped this sorta-replica would have a few more Steyr-related qualities as the Real McCoy - other than the overall molded shape and dimensional geometry. Alas, it falls quite short in this regard. On the side of price it is a reasonably sound design of the generic CO2 pistol that has nothing new let alone revolutionary in it. It's reasonably accurate from 20 feet. It has decent velocity. It seems reliable - at least to this point in time as I have only put 2 x 12g CO2 cylinders worth of BBs through it. One other positive is that ASG's generic barrel for BBs could care less whether it spat out Hornady, Umarex, Copperhead, Crosman or Daisy BBs -, they all go as true as the gun is capable of from a nested & rested position. Each brand of BB put about 85-90% of its projectiles within a 2.25" diameter circle and the remaining 10-15% were either just outside OR were those 'shake-your-head' flyers that would puzzle any ballistician. At the end of everything, I find this gun to be like virtually every other no-blow, CO2 BB pistol out there, but with a little bit of a Steyr skin draped over it. While this CO2 pistol is certainly nothing special at the price - in my experience - I must say in its defense that I have shot considerably poorer pistols yet was given the privilege of paying nearly twice the price for the pain!. So at least in that regard, this ASG design for a generic, no-blow CO2 pistol appears to be reliable and respectable for casual, non-competitive shooting where accuracy speed drills and quick reloads are not part of your expectations. But, as with EVERY 'replica' handgun I have ever shot, excepting a few revolvers capable of cocking into single-action mode, the trigger on this pistol is ABYSMAL. That may come as a bit of a surprise to folks who've never shot an explosive-actuated pistol but the trigger on this CO2 version in NO WAY comes within a light-year of its big brother.To summarize,this generic CO2, no-blow pistol is an OK performer but gives the shooter little sense of the Steyr 9mm L9-A1. Without even the Trapezoidal Sights that Steyr is know for, and a trigger that is absolutely hideous, this replica utterly fails to replicate most of what the Steyr M9-A1 is all about. In closing, there are people willing to pay $250 per unit for high quality replica BB / PT pistols that are full scale, working models of the real thing. The metal does not have to be Cro-Moly nor the barrels Cold Hammer forged, but when I can buy a CANiK TP9SA at Cabela for $600; a 9mm pistol that passes the NATO 30,000 round Reliability Test Protocol with flying colors, fires perfectly after baths in mud, wet sand and even while full of water; is it really too much to expect from ASG, Umarex, Daisy etc.,to build real replicas that at least make an attempt to replicate the feel and action of its bigger brothers - not just the looks? Think about it.
