Another of the SHOT Show announcements: Stoeger Expands STR-9 Pistol Line with the affordable and durable pistol now available in an Optics-Ready model, Flat Dark Earth/Cerekote model. Chambered in 9 mm, the STR-9 blends form and function to create an all-around solution for everyday carry, home protection or fun at the range.
The STR-9 features a corrosion-resistant black nitride finish, available interchangeable backstrap grips for a custom fit and 4.17-inch barrel for easy concealment and quick deployment. The pistol features an accessory rail to accept a wide variety of pistol lights and laser sights for low-light conditions. The reversible magazine release allows for right- and left-handed shooting. With an overall length of 7.44 inches and weighing 1.5 pounds, the STR-9 is designed for personal protection without breaking the bank.
Special Notice: The SHOT Show is where the industry unveils the latest and greatest, but there may not be a SHOT Show 2021. Here are more details.
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.
The STR-9 Optics Ready features four interchangeable plates for attaching some of the most popular aftermarket red-dot sights to the top of the slide. The STR-9 Optics Ready comes with three interchangeable backstraps, three magazines, fiber-optic front iron sight, loader and four optic-mounting plates.
The STR-9 in Flat Dark Earth features an FDE polymer frame and cerakoted slide. The overall look of the pistol is accentuated with contrasting black dovetail sights, chamber, extractor, take-down lever, slide lock, magazine release and trigger. The STR-9 in Flat Dark Earth comes with three interchangeable backstraps, three magazines, holster and loader.
The 10-Round Magazine model addresses shooters’ needs to comply with various states’ magazine capacity regulations. The pistol is available in three configurations with up to three different backstraps for a customized fit, one to three magazines, a loader and white-dot or Tritium Night Sights.
