    For the most part the brass skims just over the top of my head, but sometimes... it doesn`t. The picture above is from my L9A1 ejecting spent brass directly back at my face; this particular little bugger landed directly between my temple and the arm of my eyepro and happily sat there until I...

    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...

    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...

    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...

    Debating selling my STEYR RIFLE model M 30-06 double triggers, stock is nice original, pachmayr recoil pad and it is freshly blued. Please advise a fair price range. 30-40 rounds thru it. Purchased new 1970 on return from vietnam. Thanks for advice. Appreciate all comebacks

    I have an M40-A, it is heavily scaring the brass, anyone know why? Is this a problem? Or normal? Never seen it before. Help please!!

  9. Other Handguns
    Okay, so in the thread below, I have chronicled my S&W PPK. Now on to the other PPK (I have two). Will try to make a long story short. Got it at a pawnshop as it was advertised as a Pre-War. I memorized the serial number, went home and confirmed it was made in 1935. No problems there. Only...

    Hello everyone, obviously I'm a new guy here. Originally from Missouri, stationed in Kansas, deployed to Afghanistan. I own a M40-A1 and it's one of the nicest pistols I've shot. I'm really looking forward to learning from the wealth of knowledge available from here.

    Long time gunner here looking to buy my first Steyr. Looking at a low serial number (006965) M9. Only other notations are GSI-T Ala. Gun is in good shape with three mags. I have always been a Glock guy and want to try a Steyr. A little worried about the low serial number. Any help appreciated...
  12. Other Handguns
    Is there a replacement spring for the GB mag. I can't find any on the web, but given all the different mags on the market, has anybody found a replacement? Even if there is some mods needed, I'm just looking for one that will function properly.

    It's 2306 here in Kabul and I think I'm ready to by my first handgun sight unseen, a S-A1 in 40. Maybe it's the Sig P229 on my hip that is just like my Sig back home, but I've come to the realization I just don't like the heavy DA trigger. With a Glock and a Kahr PM9, a Steyr in 40 seems to...

    Anyone here read German?
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  16. 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

    Hey guys this is my first post here at steyrclub i am wondering if somebody can share some insight into some problems my new m40 has. I used to own a m40-a1 about six years ago but I had to sell it a few years back. It was the most reliable semi auto pistol I have owned with absolutely no...

    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...

    The SIG P229 was the first gun to be made exclusively in New Hampshire rather than Germany. US vs German made SIGs are a controversial subject in the SIG community but I don't care where the gun was made as long as it performs as I expect it to; and this gun does. I currently have about 600...
  20. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    My M9 shoots left of center continuously. I need to move the front sight to the left. I have about 600 rounds through the weapon now. I'm used to the trap sight system ( I like it). Is there a specific tool used to move the front sight? How have you guys adjusted your sights. Thanks in...
