After years of producing quality shotguns at affordable prices, Stoeger has now expanded its offerings. In fact, the company has again jumped into the handgun market; this time with the Stoeger STR-9 pistol.

Stoeger introduced this pistol in the popular 9mm chambering. The company did this to create an all-around solution for everyday carry, home protection or simply fun at the range. However, part of it also comes from the effectiveness of today’s 9mm ammunition. Additionally, 9mm rounds are typically more affordable, meaning more time at the range training.

Features of the Stoeger STR-9

To start, the STR-9 comes with a corrosion-resistant black nitride finish. It also comes with interchangeable backstraps for customizing the grip. And while this pistol can easily be carried everyday, its 4.17-inch barrel still provides enough length for accuracy, even at distances.

Now Stoeger engineered the grip angle to match the drift-adjustable, three-dot sights. This provides true target alignment. Also, this pistol comes with a low-bore axis, which helps to reduce muzzle rise for fast follow-up shots, as does the aggressive front- and backstrap serrations. All together, these features keep the gun in the hand and on target in all manners of situations and conditions.

Stoeger included a crisp trigger that houses an internal safety for security, as well as an accessory rail that accepts a wide variety of lasers and lights for low-light conditions. Even better, this gun can be used by either hand shooters without changing style as the magazine release is reversible. Durable and reliable, the STR-9 delivers an excellent personal defense pistol at an economic price.
