New for 2024 is Stoeger's STR-9 Combat X semi-automatic handgun, a new variant of the wildly popular STR-9 series. For years, that series has been well-known for its combination of utility, durability and low price point. So what's different about the Combat X? Well, although it's available to the civilian market in the U.S., this version of the Combat has been tuned so it qualifies for bids with NATO. The already highly reliable Combat pistol has been beefed up so that one can fire up to 10,000 rounds continuously without failures to feed or extract.
Yes, ten thousand with five zeroes! We here at NRA Family wouldn't necessarily recommend going that long between cleanings if you don't have to--after all, a clean gun is a safer gun--but knowing that your firearm is capable of handling such treatment is definitely reassuring.
The pistol also features an ambidextrous slide release, and comes with removeable and interchangeable backstraps to make the pistol as "universal" as possible. And with an MSRP of only $599, this pistol is among the most feature-rich at this price point on the market today. For more, visit StoegerIndustries.com.
