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.

"Nice sidearm, it's decently accurate. It's load when you fire it. This thing is so powerful that I can't even bring into the outdoor fields that I go to. When I can bring it (I'ts only allowed as a secondary and supposed to keep a distance. When I fire it in the field, people run for the hills.
Reasonable ammo capacity
Nice weight (makes it more realistic)
Great looks, especially the sights.
Very powerful (banned in some fields)
Long trigger pull
There's a small piece that extends out of the barrel a bit, when discharging the weapon.
"This I a good beginner co2 side arm. I have good experiences with it so far
-nice weight (you can remove the weights from inside if you want)
-high quality polymer, could take an impact but it could break if it takes a hard drop
-good gas efficiency

-co2 (could be a con)
-very high for for a handgun (could also be a con)

A little bit.

"Great little pistol. To be honest I'm new to airsoft but I bought a pair of these and they shoot great. I had one issue of a small piece of loose plastic became wedged into the mechanism but after removing it the gun has been flawless. I've been shooting .30s out of it and they seem to be quite accurate and at least as consistent as my rifle once i learned where to hold my aim. One more thing I thought was funny was that my wife immediately stole one of them and giggled while shooting it. She's now begun decorating it and it's thoroughly enjoying the process.
Long gas life
Comfortable in the hand
All plastic construction except specific internal parts
Not easy to reassemble once you've taken the clamshells apart but not impossible.
