Very recently I purchased an item I was searching for for many years .It's a Steyr M11 shouder stock.I know very little about them, only that some were produced for commercial guns, or perhaps for the Chilean M1911. The only stocks produced for the Austrian Army were the ones issued with the selective-fire M12/16P, but these are slightly different in shape.This stock fits over the frame of the gun, and locks by a metal piece inside the sleeve which is pushed against the back of the frame by the locking lever you can see in the pics.The sleeve is made of brass, painteed black, and the locking piece is spring steel.

I was really very happy when I fitted in it to my "OESTERR.WAFFENFABRIK STEYR.M.1911 9m/m" # 281 gun. It's not the best such gun I've seen (it has some stains and rust spots), but it's the best I've ever found for sale.There were quite a few made (the highest serial number I know of is 511), but they are very seldom seen. It's unusual for a non-military gun. Perhaps some of these guns were sent for testing to military acceptance commisions and tested in trials? This could explain why so fiew have survived. This particular specimen has all the M1911 characteristics. Differently from the 1911 Chilenian and later commercial ones and 1912 Military models it's impossible to disingage the safety lever by pulling back the hammer, and it also has a dovetailed rear sight. It bears a 1912 Wien commercial Nitro Proof .Pics tell all the rest.
About the pics,if you download the 2541-2542 images and change quikly the one with the other,you'll be able to see as it works by blocking.
