Notes on the Steyr M9-A1 NBB Pistol by ASG
You may have heard of Steyr before. They are makers of the famous AUG bullpup rifle. Steyr also makes a sweet looking pistol called the Steyr M9-A1. The real Steyr M9-A1 is a unique design in that it is a very comfortable pistol to hold. The barrel and slide sit very low in relation to the shooters hand. The ASG replicates the look and feel of the Steyr in the form of a non-blowback CO2 pistol. This is a solid gun for beginners. It's simple, it's light, and it shoots well out of the box. Typical non-blowback pistols can get over 100 shots on a single CO2 capsule and on this pistol it delivers quite a punch in terms of power. Adding a spare magazine will keep you in the game longer if you need to rely on this pistol. We often recommend non-blowback pistols like these as beginner pistols due to the low cost and ease of maintenance. These pistols ironically shoot harder than many of the more expensive blowback pistols due to the CO2 being used only to drive the BB and not being used to also move the slide and generate recoil out of the moving parts. The only downside we would say is the heavy trigger pull and the lack of realistic weight of the pistol.
The non-blowback pistols that use stick mags like this have their pros and cons. The biggest pro would be the cost. Since this magazine is simple in design, the cost is very low so you could get plenty of spare magazines for the price of a single gas blowback pistol magazine. Also with the efficiency and the number of shots you get out of a CO2 capsule, you won't have to worry about having enough CO2 in most cases. Whereas for a gas blowback pistol the CO2 or fuel is stored in the mag, you always have to make sure it's topped off in there and it's tied only to that one magazine.
As mentioned, non-blowback pistols are very simple and low maintenance for new players. They lack moving parts so the only thing you really should be doing is keeping the barrel clean to prevent jamming. You can do so with silicone oil and a cleaning rod with some paper towel patches. The aim is to make sure there is no dirt or anything obstructing the barrel to ensure reliability.
