The late 1980's and early 1990's are known as the dawn of the age of the polymer framed, striker fired pistol. The Glock 17 had taken the law enforcement market by storm leaving the traditional steel frame hammer fired pistols in the dust. Compared to service weapons of old, the lightweight and easy to use large capacity 9mm pistol was like something from the future, every law enforcement agency wanted it. Riding the wave of that popularity, a myriad of other firearms manufacturers entered the fray with their own "wonder 9" in the United States, big names like Colt and Smith & Wesson threw their hat in the ring, some designs were good, others less so. One of the best designs, that endures to this day is the Steyr Mannlicher M9. Unique in its styling, the M9 offers the traditional polymer frame and striker firing mechanism many have come to know and love from Austrian made pistols. What sets the M9 apart from the crowd is its high grip profile, which holds the barrel access closer to the shooters hand, increasing accuracy by reducing muzzle rise and allowing for a quicker follow up shot. Of the crowd of pistols that came out of the "Wonder 9 Years" many faded into obscurity and others never made it off the drawing board, the Steyr Mannlicher M9 however, sees use internationally in the hands of some of the most elite military and law enforcement units.

"I have the black one. This is a great gun; a powerhouse gas miser. I chrono-ed 500+ FPS several times during the first few dozen shots and a respectable 440 FPS through about 80 shots. The gas lasted so long I lost count. My only concern is that .2g BBs were curving all over the place almost right out of the barrel. I'll try heavier weights for better accuracy.
"When I was just getting into Airsoft, I knew I wanted a pistol, and decided to cheap out on it. That being said, THIS PISTOL IS THE BOMB!
This is absolutely a "High Power" pistol. My battle buddy has the same pistol and decided to chrono it before a game day, and the ref said that he couldn't use it because it was shooting around 455fps (which is way over the field limit for AEGs). Due to this, I did not chromo my pistol, knowing that the result would be the same. With that power comes really great range, and somewhat of a kick without there being any sort of blowback. This pistol is super accurate, and really comfortable. It is made out of a plastic body with metal internals, and even without the Co2 tank or mag in, this pistol has a decent amount of weight.
I customized this pistol with a really simple paint job by removing the rear sight part, and a screw located back there, and slipping off the slide (being careful not to lose the spring that is on the inner barrel. I taped the slide around all of the parts I wanted to keep black, and painted the rest of it a metallic/hammered silver. This gives my pistol a unique look that turns heads all over the place.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for something that will get the job done, cuz remember, we are adults playing army with toy guns. Thats it.
"A great pistol for the price. Once I got past the trigger pull, it was a surprisingly accurate gun. I had a friend wearing full body protection at a 30 foot distance. Firing 6 shots, the gun scored 6 hits, and my friend got 6 welts. VERY powerful (Weird, because mine chronoed at 350fps. It is NOT 350 fps).
-Polymer build (Mine took some damage to the iron sights when I dropped it)
-Bad trigger pull (A problem with pretty much all NBB's, from my understanding)
-NO MAGS ANYWHERE!!!
Overall 8.5/10. I would recommend this gun to players with moderate skill.
