New pistol Stoeger STR-9

Recommended Posts

Picked up a Stoeger STR-9.

Got it from local Rural King for $338.42. Came in cardboard box with info, 3 back straps and 3 15 round mags.

Made in Turkey. Very Glock like inside and shoots as good as a Glock 19 for me.

I would compare to Glock gen3/4 G19 model.

Standard 3 dot sights but are metal. Parts do not seem to be interchangeable with Glocks but it does fit Glock 19 holsters.Low Bore Axis Image

Put 500 rounds thru it so far with 2 failures to completely eject fired casings, strong RSA and 3 times slide locked back with rounds still in mag, found out I was riding up on slide lock.

Sight are POA/POI for me and groups at least as well as any Glock 9mm I have owned.

I have seen the ads for these, and have been tempted by them. The pistols coming out of Turkey have been very good in my small observation and use. I'm a Canik fan, and have several. No problems whatsoever with them.

If I were to be in the right place at the wrong time, and found a really good price...well I might just have to bring one home with me.

And getting 3 mags with it is the icing on the cake. These days we are lucky to get 2.

I suffer from the same contagious condition; it's more contagious than the current virus. However; I've found some relief in combating the symptoms and effects of carrying something home, and you sure don't want to 'give' it to another.

Just carry small quantities of cash, leave debit and credit cards at home [or better yet, cut them up] and most importantly... Make sure when it runs across you, you're over a 1/2 days trip from from there. This gives you pause because you can not return on the same day to take it home and gives you time to ensure the adoption is legitimate. It gets tiring and hurts just being a foster guardian in many examples of this contagion. 

Also before you leave home, it doesn't hurt to show the wife the massive gun collection you already have in your safe and your possible intention of adding another orphan to it. Personally speaking; this normally delays your departure by 1-3 hours, listening to the abusive language and reasoning of how that money could be better spent or saved 😆

Please take two aspirin and call me in the morning if this problem persists. I'm here to help...

It is an addiction. Meds do not seem appropriate and usable for it. Wife mostly ignores it these days. Common reply is "Do you have enough to protect me/us?" I usually reply with a shake of the head and a sad smile while explaining the virtues of the next or recently acquired specimen.

I've handled a few of these in shops.   What I didn't like is that the triggers were inconsistent and the mags would get stuck on the way out of the magwell.  

However, I'm rather eager to pick one up as long as it has the optic cut and a trigger that doesn't suck too much.    There does seem to be a level of compatibility with Glock parts; I know of one that someone successfully installed an aftermarket Glock trigger in.

Not had a problem with the mags or inconsistent trigger.

Trigger pull has smoothed out a little and although a little heavy it breaks clean/crisp. 

Put around 400 rounds thru it s far.

      Hello folks, I bought this Beretta model 81BB recently exclusively to convert to 32NAA. My goal is to match its grouping abilities to a 32NAA casing loaded with Lehigh 55g all copper defense bullets. For now, this is what the used M81 can do at 30 feet shooting off a wooded 4X4 block as a frame rest. Prior to the rechambering, the average speed of some pretty old PMC 71g FMJ loads were 962 fps out of the 10 round string. The PPU averaged 914 fps.
        To do a conversion on a Beretta Model 81, it simply requires renting the reamer from 4D rentals for a total cost of $47 bucks, adding a model 84 380 magazine and some ammo. No other mods are needed since Beretta uses the same bolt face in their 81/84 model slides. The thick gripped Beretta is a most comfortable gun to shoot. In 32ACP its a real kitten. Stepped up to the new chambering and you know immediately, this aint your grandfathers ACP! The 80g Defensive HP's stepped out at an average of 1067fps in the pictured 10 shot string. I'm looking forward to see what kind of velocities I can generate with the 55g Lehigh copper pills. They should have some serious splash out of the Beretta's 4 3/4" barrel. Then I couldn't help giving the Guardian a go at the 30 foot target with the PMC's. There is some evidence of slight key holeing out of the Guardians shallow rifling but hitting the paper regularly at that range with those sights is still acceptable in my view.  ;D

      Have any of you ever heard of this distributor?  If you go through prices, some are listed as normal, some are shown as on Sale, and are several hundred dollars cheaper than anything I can find online.
      Just trying to find out if this site is legit. Not looking for random opinions, more how to tell if it's a scam.
