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.
