Stoeger Adds STR-9MC Micro Compact Pistol to the STR Series
January 23, 2023

January 2023, (Accokeek, MD) – Stoeger industries, manufacturer of performance-grade shotguns, personal defense handguns, and air guns, announces the new-for-2023 STR-9MC Micro Compact discreet carry personal defense handgun.

Stoeger's STR Series has proven worthy in the world of everyday carry personal defense firearms, and for 2023, the STR-9MC provides all the features found in the full-size STR-9 in a pistol that's easy to conceal and to carry discreetly. Ideal for small-framed shooters and those looking for a handgun that works well in multiple carry positions, purses, and OWB/IWB holsters, the STR-9MC Micro Compact, measuring 6.1 inches long, is a win.

Reliable and functional, this striker-fired handgun offers top-end features at a lower price point than competitive class models. The loaded chamber indicator on the top of the receiver automatically raises when a round is chambered, eliminating the need for "press checks." Other notable features like the integrated rail, expansive stippling on the grip, precision trigger, and optimized slide serrations boost performance and handling. The trigger is remarkable, and Stoeger provides multiple sight and magazine options to give shooters more customization.

The STR-9MC Micro Compact Discreet Carry is available in four 9mm options. The first pair of Black synthetic Nitride slide handguns come with two magazines (one flush, one extended), low-profile adjustable sights, and magazine capacities of 13+1 (#31766) and 10+1 (#31768). The second duo is available in 13+1 (#31770) and 10+1 (#31771) magazine options and come with three magazines (one flush, one extended, one pinky), Tritium Night Sights, and an optic-ready slide configuration.
