    Hi guys, I'm trying to figure out the best way to care for my S9-A1. I just out about 300 rounds through it yesterday after buying it used. I've never had to care for a gun before, and want to make sure I keep it in great shooting condition. I had a few questions I'm hoping you all can help me...

    Hey y'all! I bumped into a Steyr S9-A1 at a gun show and started investigating because it just felt so danged good in my hand. Eventually I made up my mind I wanted a C9-A1 because of the hi-cap mags. I called SAI, distributors, dealers that had Steyrs in old listings. None. Zip. Nada Finally...

    I'm new to your site today and would appreciate advice on the following - when I bore sighted my SG08 .338 Lapua rifle with Smidt & Bender PM2 sight on Warne mounts, it took 44.25 moa to zero on the aiming mark. This leaves 19.75 moa to shoot with which doesn't really meet my expectations for...

    Had my choice between a "very new" M9-A1 (3 10 round mags w/box), and a used M40-A1. Picked the .40, SMI import, s/n 04708x. 2 12 round mags, no box. What do I need to know? Right choice? Thanks in advance! Gary Semper Fi Semper Fi - Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hi, My name is Ariel from San Francisco, CA. I recently found out about excellence that is the M40-A1. As a result, I have decided to commit to the challenging journey of purchasing this pistol legally in CA. Any advice is appreciated.

    Hello all, I'm a newbie to the club, and I did a forum search on this issue but I had no luck there... Does anyone know where I can find a 30-60MOA slanted picatiny rail to put on top of my HS-50? I understand that the newer HS-50's have a 20MOA slanted base on them. In fact, I may be the...

    Hello Steyr Fans, I went to the range for the first time with my new to me Steyr M9 (not A1) that came with two ten round mags. I shot some other handguns, namely Sig P226, Beretta PX4, and XD9. I purchased the M9 after reading so many good things about the accuracy of the 9mm version of this...

    Hi All, I must admit, the main reason for joining is a failure to be able to track down a magazine to the above rifle. Of the few websites that have them, none of them want to deal outside of their own countries. Any advice offered will be gratefully received. Many Thanks

    I have already submitted ads for 2 handguns (Glock 27 and Springfield 1911) in a local classified publication. When you guys sell, do you meet at a neutral location or do you have them come to your house? Also, on bills of sale, do you include your name and address? If you haven't already...

    Hi there, I have some trouble with all my 5 mags. They tend to get a coat of rust after 2 or 3 days before cleaning them. It is kind of annoying having to clean them so often. I have tried from Hoppes 9 to Frog lube to Seal 1 and it is the same with everything. Any advice?? Thanks in...

    Use only non-linting materials to clean the striker or firing pin channel in actually any weapon. Lint can cause light strikes by itself, and with dirt, it can really muck things up. Coffee filters or Chem-X filters are non-woven materials which will clean well and not leave fibers behind. Cut...

    Hello, dear friends I am interested to know - should the disassemble lever snap into its former place automatically when I set the slide after disassembling? Ealier it snaped into its place automatically, but after I completely disassembled my Steyr M-A1 the level does not want to and I have to...

    I had something odd happen today when I went to the firing range. It wasn't something I expected, I had inserted the magazine into my M9A1 (15 round magazine), pulled the slide back, let go, and the slide only moved partially and stopped. I checked to make sure there was no round in the chamber...
