Last year, Stoeger entered the striker-fired pistol market with its STR-9. Retailing for around $350, the STR-9 delivered tremendous value in a full-size, polymer-framed pistol. An equally impressive STR-9 Compact model soon followed. Now the line matures even more with the release of the Stoeger STR-9S Combat.
Stoeger STR-9S Combat Pistol
The Combat variant features suppressor-height sights and threaded barrel. An optics-ready slide, interchangeable backstraps and flared magwell adds to the appeal.
The exterior boasts a corrosion-resistant black nitride finish. An accessory rail accepts a wide range of lights and lasers for tactical or defensive use. The reversible magazine release supports right- and left-handed shooting. The STR-9S Combat measures 7.44 inches overall and weighs in a 1.6 pounds.
Stoeger designed the STR family to prove rugged and reliable. And the company also include purpose-driven features. The Combat’s grip angle matches the drift-adjustable, raised suppressor-height fiber-optic sights. The system provides true target alignment and combines with a low-bore axis for reduced muzzle rise, according to Stoeger. Lower muzzle rise helps deliver more speed on follow-up shots, an important attribute.
Aggressive front and back slide serrations help provide purchase, with or without gloves. A smooth, crisp trigger houses an internal safety, according to Stoeger.
The STR-9S Combat also comes with four interchangeable plates for attaching popular aftermarket red dot sights. Add in 20- or 10-round magazines, depending on the state of residence, and the STR-9S Combat delivers on all fronts. With a retail price of around $550, this full-size, optics-ready platform deserves attention. For even more info, please visit stoegerindustries.com.
