SHOT 2019: Stoeger's STR-9 Semi-Auto Pistol

Stoeger has long been known for building quality, budget-friendly shotguns...but this year, they're branching out into something new: handguns. Their STR-9 striker-fired semi-automatic pistol just debuted, and it's quickly becoming a hot ticket at this year's SHOT Show. With an MSRP of just $349--probably available for considerably less from your local dealer--the STR-9 piqued our interest with its price tag alone. But of course, there's much more to this new offering than a great price. 

Because it's chambered in the popular and highly effective 9mm and offers a 15+1 capacity, the STR-9 is terrific for self-defense. With its 1.5-pound weight and 7.5-inch total length, concealed carry is a snap. An accessory rail accepts a wide variety of pistol and laser lights for low-light conditions, and it boasts a reversible magazine release for right- or left-handed shooting. Its versatility doesn't stop there, either: There are also available interchangeable backstraps for a custom fit to your hand. 

Rugged and reliable, the STR-9's grip angle is engineered to match the drift-adjustable, three-dot sights for true target alignment and combines with a low-bore axis for reduced muzzle rise to quickly reacquire targets for follow-up shots. Aggressive front and back slide serrations provide a firm grasp with or without gloves. A smooth-pulling, crisp trigger houses an internal safety for extra security.
