The following info on the Steyr Model GB is courtesy of world.guns.ru:
The development of the
GB pistol was started by Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG (now Steyr-Mannliher AG),
The GB is a blowback-operated, gas-retarded blowback semi auto pistol. It uses some of the hot powder gasses, fed from the barrel into the front part of the slide, to slow down the retraction of the slide before the bullet leaves the barrel. This scheme was developed by German engineer Barnitzke at the end of WW2. The gas brake is formed by the barrel, its bushing and the slide.
The trigger of the GB is of double action design, with a slide mounted de-cocker lever. GB also featured a firing pin block that unlocks the firing pin only when the trigger is completely depressed. The frame and the slide is made from carbon steel with special high-strength finish. The barrel has polygonal rifling and is chrome lined, and solidly attached to the frame. The sights are fixed and featured white-dot inserts (one in the front sight blade and two - around the rear sights notch). Some early GB’s were manufactured with steel grip panels, with all the rest manufactured with plastic checkered grips.
Thanks to its
gas-retarded blowback design and solid weight that resulted in low felt recoil,
and to the barrel with polygonal rifling, that doesn't move when firing, the Steyr GB displayed very good accuracy. The reliability is
also adequate, at least. While the GB failed at the Austrian and USA Army
pistol trials (won respectively by Glock 17 and
Beretta 92FS-B), it was used by some Law Enforcement and Special Operations
forces, and also was sold to civilians in Europe and
