    i hate you guys hehehe , yes it really sucks my friends and thinking that i have one if not the best defense pistol in whole world. it all goes back to murphy's law i think, "shit happens" anyway, if i can't find a replacement which is 100% zero here in the philippines, i might as well contact steyr of austria. i wonder if this will cover by warranty as defective part. or, i can have it made locally by our gunsmith.
    from what i saw, it has a fractured line that started the thing. sorry can't zoom my camera that far even using its macro setting. also i might try SAi, can any give me there website or e-mail add, much appreciate it . will keep you posted

    Sure would be great if SAI offered a parts kit which included a firing pin, extractor, misc springs, etc for about $9.99. Heck, I'd go $19.99 and perhaps more if they'd throw in a Steyr Pistols patch.
    Let us know how your firing pin replacement experience goes. Could be a batch of improperly heat treated pins out there so get a couple if you can.

    Been a member of this website for some time now and this a new one to me. Can't remember ever seeing a Steyr firing pin issue before that as similiar either here or at GlockTalk.

    Yes, it would be nice if Steyr sold their parts outright. I understand why they want to keep parts in house for warranty reasons, but having to ship a whole handgun as a non-FFL private citizen isn't cheap.

    hi there jologs,
    kabayan, thanks for the info, actually i was planning on calling them but was too busy with work. from the looks of it, they don't sell any parts for the steyr since the last time i was in their store, they informed me that they only carry magazine and locally made holster for the M-A1 . however, yesterday may gunsmith made for me an exact copy of the firing pin. the only problem, once we put all the parts together, it didn't fit and in process of fixing all the errors, broke the thing in half. he told me today that i'll be getting another piece either made from stainless steel or ordinance steel, both metals will be heat treated for strength.
    i sometimes wonder if what i got is a lemon, i was informed by my friend i the gun business that these were the very first batch of steyr M9-A1 in the philippines back then. i think steyr should address this issue seriously.

    nuj,
    I don't recall but just for curiosity sake, is your frame fitted with the safety above the trigger?
    Great you have a gunsmith handy to make a part like this and has the know how to heat treat it properly. I do know trhat oftentimes heat treated parts have to be ground after that process since they have warped a bit.
    Good luck with the firing pin.
    Health, Peace
