Our Assessment: The L9-A1 is Steyr Mannlicher’s full-size, polymer-frame, striker-fired, service/duty pistol. It has great ergonomics with a low bore axis to help reduce recoil. This example has been equipped with a DPM Systems recoil reducing system. The pistol is in great shape, appearing to have seen little if any use and comes with a pair of magazines. This is a great choice for home defense or every day carry. Good luck on your bid!
