January 2024, Accokeek, MD – Early last year, Stoeger Industries added several new models to its STR striker-fired pistol series. This included the STR-9 MC micro-compact — a 9mm semi-auto handgun designed for discerning everyday carry and deep concealed carry practitioners. This full-featured pistol has proven itself in the hands of consumers and has earned the attention of the editors at ShootOn, for which the firearm publication’s staff has awarded the STR-9 MC the ShootOn Excellence Award

ShootOn writes: “With an MSRP of $399 (and a street price $50 less than that), the STR-9 MC is a powerhouse 9mm for the price. This gun proved flawlessly reliable and surprisingly accurate in our testing, and with a 13+1 capacity and optional models available with an optic-cut slide and tritium night sights, the STR-9 MC is a confident purchase for those looking for a dependable and concealable 9mm.” 

The STR-9 MC is part of an extensive line of personal defense pistols in the Stoeger STR series, with more models coming available in 2024. Boasting an ergonomic, high-traction frame, smooth and crisp trigger system, low-profile adjustable sights, and an accuracy potential that exceeds its micro-compact design, the STR-9 MC is the perfect option for anyone desiring a reliable EDC 9mm. 

“We would like to thank the staff of ShootOn for selecting the STR-9 MC for the ShootOn Excellence Award,” said Tim Joseph, Vice President of Marketing. “For a discrete carry handgun that doesn’t compromise anything in terms of ergonomics, function, or accuracy, and comes at a price that meets discretionary budgets, the STR-9 MC is a winner.”
