    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...

    I recently acquired a new S9-A1 which was manufactured in 09/2012. The firing pin spring was coated with some sort of red lubricant paste. Does anyone know exactly what it is? FWIW, I put it's first 200 rounds (Federal 115 grain FMJ RN) through it last week. With the exception of shooting a bit...

    Like the title of the thread says, I've got a blind date with a March 2013 production Steyr M40-A1. I have never even so much as held one, but that didn't keep me from ordering one today. I'm super excited and I'm anxious to get to know this pistol. One area that I seek knowledge in is...

    I was in my LGS today and of all guns he could deal with me on it had to be a Gen3 Glock 19. I said I would never own one because of the grip but given the current worries over gun bans I could not pass up the gun brand new with 3 extra 15rnd mags. Guess what, it's brand new and already has a...

    I recently purchased a M40-A1. I had a choice of either the M40 or the M40-A1. I went with the A1 because it was newer and held 12 rounds. I thought all A1's were made after 2010 but after reading on this forum I am finding out that this is not true. Is there a place to look up my serial # and...

    Hello, all. I just picked up my brand new S9-A1 and boy is it sweet. I've been eyeing these on-line for some time but I had to drive out of state (admittedly not far in the northeast) just to handle one. I ordered it last week and now it's in my hands. The store owner says now that he's had...

    So after about two years of research and trips to the range trying different autos, I found the M9-A1. I took my time since this was my first gun purchase. I picked one up at Cabela's (although it's an M9-A1 the slide says M9)last week, cleaned it, and then put 100 rounds through it. I had two...

    I'm relatively new to pistol shooting and recently purchased a NIB M9-A1, it is one of the nicest pistols I have had the pleasure to shoot. I'm having some FTE issues and was hoping to learn from the folks with the knowledge how to resolve my issues. Glock 17 STI GP-6C 9mm S&W M&P 9mm...

    Finally got my new M9 PW Arms (Cabelas) to the range. Using Winchester White box 115 grain Luger I got 1 FTE in 185 rounds using 3 different brand new magazines. This is also my first time shooting a plastic gun, at 10 yards I was hitting way right (about 6 inches) from bullseye. Thought it was...

    I just picked up a steyr 9mm used from a local pawn shop. Gun feels great and if it wasn't pouring outside i would be shooting it to try it out. While i was admiring my new steyr i noticed that my slide Only has Steyr M9 on it not the M9-A1. I has the new lower frame and all the serial...
  14. Ammunition and Reloading
    I haven't loaded for the 9mm for a long time and now that I am getting a new M9, I am asking what powders are used now. I am talking about practice loads at the range with either fmj ball bullets or maybe cast bullets. Thanks, John

    I have had my M9-A1 9mm for about six months now and have about a case worth the Speer Lawman 115 grain through it. I've also run some Winchester White Box and assorted el cheap steel cased ammo. The major question about these guns is reliability. During the break in period I had a couple FTE...

    Hey Shooters, Let me just say that I absolutely love how my M9A1 feels in my hand, and the trap sights are fantastic. What I certainly don't love and don't understand is that even though I did my research about this gun and waited for a large online retailer to run out, then get more in stock...

    Hey folks. My first Steyr finally arrived today after months of deliberation and sourcing. Anyway. After compiling the good/bad/ugly ammo chart, blazer brass FMJ seems like a pretty reliable choice. Where I'm stuck is on which grain would run most reliably. I can get a box of 1000 124g for $240...
  18. Caracal C and F Series
    I took my new Caracal C to the range on Sat. I was disappointed to experience 3 malfunctions, out of 363 rds fired. All the issues were with WWB 115 gr FMJ's. The 1st malf was a failure to eject, while shooting 2 handed. Things where fine for awhile and the 2nd malf was a failure to feed, while...

    So I was lamenting last week my fears of a non Shooter, my fears were . . . . Put well to rest. Its model run is "LOH" It shot amazing, Ran both Winchester 115 and American Eagle 115 through with out a hitch, I was instantly working well with the sights (not sure if its because I learned...

    Thought I'd throw this up there just because. God I can't get over how much I love this Steyr....hhahahaah
