From what I've seen lately people are asking around $600 for used ones.

Is the M40 or the M40A1 model? I would think $475~500 would be fair for a 95%+ condition.

It's a piece of crap. I'll give you $50 for it, to take it off your hands.













:D

Seriously, it's a great pistol. I've seen them go for anywhere between $400-$600, so it's really worth whatever you're willing to pay for it! :thumbsup:

It's a better gun than most I've ever shot, and my M40 is my "go to" gun for all occasions!

G/L! :cheers2:

I'll voice in that M40A1 is a great piece. I have the luck to grab one before people realize their true value. :43:

The true value of an M is priceless!

I have an M40A1, and compared to my XD-40, I prefer the Steyr. To me, the Steyr has a better trigger feel, better ergonomics and points just as well. Only issue are the sights that you need to get used to. They aren't the greatest, but they are fast.

So, since its only the M first version I would say $500 would be a good start. For the M40A1, I would say $600 is a good price.

Buy it for as little as you can. There was a time a couple of years ago, when you could find them for $399. Those days are long gone since Steyr USA decided to import handguns because of the poor US$ vs the Euro exchange rate. Since no new ones are available, it is a seller's market, for a gun with a cult following. At the end of the day, it depends whether the seller knows this. If he doesn't, then you are under no obligation to educate him. If you can buy it at a good price, don't let this Steyr M40 slip away. You won't regret buying it. Extra 10rd .40cal mags are available from CDNN for $20.00

If your selling it on here, figure out what you pay for it and then add 20-25% on top of that.

Dude, what do you mean "not incredibly cheap"? That was hell of deal you got there. If you aren't happy with the gun, I'll gladly buy it off you for what you pay OTD. :chris:

$335 OTD. You practically stole that off him. Good job. I hope you and the M40-A1 have a long and happy love affair. ;)

I'm very carious about this pistol. I'm mainly a Glock shooter (and a little of Sig and CZ). And everyone had told me about Steyr is an improvement of perfection...etc. From the picture the slide looks kind of short. Was that a full size compare to Glock 17 or more like XD service size?

The grip angle has nice thumb indentions to make for a nice higher angle grip for me. MY M40-A1 is similar in size to my XD 40 service.

The Steyr M series also has a very low slide profile because the barrel axis is very low to reduce muzzle rise. The trigger has 4mm of travel and is approx 5.6lb). In size, the M-Series is comparable to the S&W Sigma SW9/ 40VE, Glock 19 and 23.
