Steyr improves SA-1 and MA-1 trigger

    Steyr has announced that they have redesigned the Reset Action System (striker) of their SA-1 and MA-1 pistols.

    The modification results in a much smoother trigger take-up and a remarkably consistent and crisp break at approximately five pounds.

    The redesign incorporates a small pin beneath the rear sight that bisects the striker firing-pin channel. A small roller on this cross-pin allows the striker firing pin to move much more smoothly during the compression phase of the trigger pull. This also allows for a much cleaner break when the trigger mechanism releases the striker firing pin.

    Earlier this year Steyr began reimporting the SA-1 and MA-1 pistols.
