  1. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    It's a little premature for me to panic, but I think I might have just bought a Frankensteyr despite my best efforts. I did not even think that the advertisement said M9 instead of M9A1. The other thing that should have tipped me off is that the NIB gun shipped with 15 rounders instead of 17...

    Does this seem normal to you guys? This is a loaded gun with only a slight amount of pressure put on the front of the slide. It will hold back and stay held back. This gun was mfg. November of 2012. The trigger is also 7lb 11oz average by my lyman digital scale. What's up with this thing?
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Greetings, Purchased a M40-A1 last February, and finally made it to the range yesterday. Was a bit hesitant on purchasing this pistol because of problems fully explored on this forum. Happy, and relieved to report that the pistol functioned perfectly. Only had time to fire about 50 rounds (I...
  5. New Member Check-In
    Quick bio: retired 62. Just started shooting Nov 2012 (What took me so long?) Took a few basic courses, and have about ten hours range time (Plus have a good friend to help). Don't own a Steyr (YET!) (Would love a C9-a1). First gun is a Ruger SR40C. And I was thinking of getting the SR9C...
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello, I have a Steyr M9a1 with the date code IOW (Sept. 2010). I have not shot the pistol much but my friend is going to use it for a multi-day handgun course. Is there any way to tell if my gun has the updated extractor? I would just hate for it to be a problem mid-course. I am also...

    I am happy I finally acquired myself a new C9-A1 handgun the other day. Ordered it in from Dave at CompactFirearms.com along with two additional 17rd mags. Instead of the listed 3 Dot sights it came with the Trap sights installed which I was pleased to see. I am liking them. Also it has a Born...

    I'm asking for your help and support in the cause of freedom for the law abiding citizens this of this country! I do believe that the sort of numbers below may just speak volumes and assist in the efforts to gain the attention of our representatives in Washington and prod them to do that which...
  9. Other Handguns
    Since I know there are lots of CZ fans on this board - I just purchased a new Sarsilmaz K2. Quick description - .45 ACP, 14+1, DA/SA, steel frame, 4.5" barrel, 40 oz, with rail, Turkish made - looks like the Turks are putting out some nice stuff - and under $500. Wonderful gun - may have the...

    Hello all, new to the forum. I had read about the "hybrid" M9 9mm Steyr at Cabelas on this forum after I had already purchased one ($379.99)on 12/28, (not knowing the particulars). I must admit I was somewhat beside myself that I had not done a better job of researching what I was purchasing...
  11. The Soap Box
    So if nobody else will ask it, I will. How is it that so many caring, loving families raise such murdering vipers? What is it? :cuss::cuss: The only common denominator I can find are the public schools, and we all know that couldn't possibly have any thing to do with it, right?
  12. The Soap Box
    I don't know if anyone else has seen this but I found it off of Twitter and think it's information all gun owners should read. At the very least it reminds us why we carry and what could happen. And it's good for those times you're talking to a gun control advocate and they tell you no one ever...

  14. Other Rifles
    Hi everybody: I recently wrote a review of the SSG-69 at www.thetruthaboutguns.com. Would love to get feedback on the article, particularly if I got any "fact" incorrect. I tried to research it as best as I could, but a another few sets of eyes (from Steyr SSG-69 owners in particular) can't...

    I've been having some issues with getting brass ejected directly back into my face once in a while (no FTE though), so I contacted a Canadian distributor for Steyr parts. I was sent a replacement extractor and spring. Before installing it, I took some photos of the old and new parts (old on...

    OK guys, Help me out here. I know Sabre Defense is out of the picture. Who, if anyone yet, is making the AUG A3's? If they are being manufactured are there any issues? Are there any significant changes from the Sabre Defense version? I've been out of the loop for awhile and am looking at...
