It’s been a little while since we introduced something new from ActionSportGames (ASG) but after a very successful and interesting meeting with them at IWA we’re pleased to report that they have a number of exciting product developments in the pipeline, and the first we can now talk about that we saw at the show is the STEYR L9-A2 GBB!

This looks to be a thoroughly unique licenced product that will be sure to delight players with an interest in real “M&P” firearm replicas, as well as a larger player-base that wants something different and special; seen as the next step in Steyr’s continued evolution of its semi-automatic pistol range, the fourth-generation real-steel pistol was introduced in 2019 and features a polymer frame and steel slide and was designed with the intention of it having modular capability. The Steyr L9-A2 airsoft pistol takes the robust, aggressive styling and design of the 9mm real steel version and replicates it perfectly!

With a distinct military feel and matte black finish, the L9-A2 is an attractive proposition for MilSim enthusiasts that want a tactical sidearm with well-thought-out ergonomics and accuracy to match.

When it comes to mounting add-ons the L9-A2 pistol has an lower-frame full picatinny rail at the front for attachments such as a laser or flashlight, upping its already potentially excellent CQB capabilities. The polymer frame provides a lightweight and balanced configuration, while the improved, slightly bowed, textured-grip panels and extended beaver tail improve grip and control. You also get clearly-defined trapezoid sights to help you get on target super-fast!

When it comes to performance, the pistol can be powered by gas or CO2, has an adjustable hop-up, and provides excellent shooting performance while (we’re told) keeping the power at a comfortable 0.8J, allowing it to be used at practically any site.

Now that we have happily re-established our relationship with ASG fully we’re looking forward to getting to grips with the Steyr L9-A2 GBB as soon as a test model becomes available; we’re waiting on a final ETA but we’re certainly hoping it will be soon… watch this space and we’ll let you know more about when you can expect to see the L9-A2 in stores just as soon as we have this confirmed!
