  1. M, C, L and S Series
    As I mentioned elsewhere, because I've moved away from the .40 caliber, I am hoping to trade my M40s for M9s once the classified section is working again. In the meantime, I've sold off a couple of other guns, and so I decided to modernize the Steyr collection: Yesterday I picked up an M9-A1...
  2. 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...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    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!!
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Can Steyr C9-A1 swap slides with S40-A1? Since the C9 is a S9 with a larger magazine grip can it swap slides? I know the S9 and S40 can swap and M9 and M40 can swap. There doesn't seem to be a swap for the C9. Is there one coming maybe?
  5. Other Handguns
    So I have fallen in love with my Ma1 40... but would like to branch out. I just got to hold a cz duty p 07 for the first time. I liked it. I now kind of have an itch to get one... the price was $450 after a mail n rebate to gander mountain. However I like the steyr so now I am interested in...

    I braved the cold today with my grandpa to go do some shooting. We were both using 9mm - I had my Steyr C9A1, and he had a Sig P250 compact. We stuck my Viridian C5L on the bottom of his gun, though even the green laser was a bit difficult to see on the snow in the bright daylight...

    The Glock 23 is a typical boring Glock. It's utterly reliable, lightweight, soft shooting, more accurate than 99% of the people that shoot it, and extremely simple in design and function. I've had this one for a few months now and have just over 500 rounds through it and here's what I've...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    I keep looking at Steyr's and Caracal's and my head is spinning. I need a push to get me going one way or another. I've watched video's... I've gone out and held the M&P, G17, CZP07's... I have a Glock and an FNH pistol already. I like them a lot. I am truly in love with the idea of the...

  10. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I bought a drill press awhile back and I've been having fun drilling anything that looks drillable. The biggest hassle has been getting the work jigged at the right spot. How I wished the DP had a laser light... Duh, mad scramble for the night stand, where did I stick it, voila! It didn't work...
  11. Other Handguns
    Here's a quick synopsis of what I've found through a little over 1k rounds through my Gen 4 G35: Pros: -Reliable (despite the internet lore, I have never seen any issues personally with Gen4 40 caliber Glocks) -Accurate (more accurate than 99% of the shooters that will own one) -Durable (I'm...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey guys just an update and to let you all know I'm looking for a new home for my M9A1. Spent most of the winter and spring researching, shooting and pricing out pistols. I decided on the Steyr, mostly because side by side on the range I felt it shot better than any other gun I was comparing...
  13. New Member Check-In
    Howdy Steyr fans! I'm here because of an expressed interest in the Steyr M9A1. I'd like to learn more about the platform. Strengths, weaknesses, parts and anything I can pull from the minds of the experienced. I think I'd like to add one to my lineup of pistols. Something about the look...

    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...
  15. Other Handguns
    Being someone who teaches groups of new shooters from all different backgrounds frequently, I often get the question, "Which gun should I get?" My answer about 80% of the time is the Glock 19. There's a reason it's the most popular handgun in America––-it's a great gun that can fill just...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Ok. I own or have owned: Glock, Caracal C, M&P, Kahr, Walther PPQ, XD9. I'm looking for the 'perfect' gun for me for: Carry & IDPA. I always shoot IDPA with my carry gun. Right now that is a Gen4 G19. I have held the Steyrs, and I like the feel. Better trigger than my Glock also. My PPQ is...

    Many devout fans of the 10mm love their Glock 20, myself included. So when I heard the Generation 4 version was released, I jumped at the chance to pick one up. I really like the Gen 4 grip on my other Glocks and I thought it would be especially helpful with the recoil of some hot 10mm...
  18. Ask Bubits
    Mr Bubits, I've been a fan of your creation since it first came out. I work for Cold Steel in design and R&D. I really can appreciate the design and ergonomics that went into this weapon. The high grip,low bore axis,natural point of aim,and love the triangle/trapezoid sights !! Every aspect...

    I've posted this in the past, with no luck. Was wondering if anyone is near Austin or in the Austin area that has a new generation M9-A1 with the roll pin that they're willing to let me try out :) Their range time would be free. Thanks, guys.
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    I've been looking for a smaller carry gun for some time now and yesterday, at the shop, someone shoved a M9-A1 into my hand and I really like the feel. The grip and sights felt and looked natural, the mags loaded easily, I loved the ultra-low muzzle axis, and the quality was higher than I had...
