brass

  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I'm trying to troubleshoot the erratic ejection on my C9A1, and I heard that erratic ejection often is due to a faulty extractor. I also heard that a good extractor will hold the round in place as it's pulled back, and if you clear the pistol with no mag in it, the round should still kick out...

    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...

    Here's the set-up. Steyr M357-A1, excellent condition. Functions 100% in every way - but one. Georgia Arms Canned Heat factory reloaded .357 SIG FMJ ammo. When fired, somewhere through a magazine, the gun will begin producing light primer strikes to the point it will not fire. Gun field...

    I have a quick question.. I recently bought a 2011 M9-A1 to replace my M40-A1 (not a fan of the recoil of the m40-a1). When I was cleaning it for the first time (I always clean and oil a gun before I shoot it for the first time) I noticed that when I took out the extractor and the extractor...

    Does anyone else get a dark carbon streak on one side of their brass almost the entire length of the case after firing? I was just wondering if this is a common occurrence with the M9 or if it is just mine. Or maybe it's from the ammo I'm using.

    Hey there, I am new to handguns in general, and just purchased a Steyr M40-A1. I love the way this gun feels and shoots, but noticed primer swipes that have me a little concerned. From researching it seems others have primer swipe marks with this gun as well, but when the swipe extends all the...

    Alright so I just picked up a new M9-A1 date of manufacture was March 2013 and it is an SAI import not a frakenstyer from what I can tell. I had an early s40 ages ago and loved it but sold it to pay for school I have now replaced it with this new m9-a1. I am curious as I am having dreaded...

    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...

    I've never really concerned myself with my M9-A1's history or rather background, I just assumed it was a Steyr like MANY others and that all the #'s matched up (frame, slide and barrel) Well, scrolling thru some old posts I find a reference to "FrankenSteyr" after some research I've learned my...

    Hello, and glad to be here! I have recently became a new Steyr owner and am happy I did. I purchased new PW ARMS Steyr M9 from Cabelas. I have had problems as far as the direction of ejection of shells, but I do like the gun. Will this correct itself after break in? My round count is around 300...

    Hey guys, just thought I'd check in, I tend to lurk, read a lot but decided to "take the plunge", this seems like a great forum and TONS of info. I've read quite a few posts where other members were having complications with their Steyrs and that got me to thinking (dangerous I know) I have an...

    The Experiment. It is an impressive experiment, to be sure. There are hotlinks on the left of the page to take you to the different parts of the experiment. If you're lazy and just want the short answer, brass is typically more reliable and easier on your barrel but if you shoot exclusively...

    Hi there, I sent my '05 M40-A1 into Steyr to have them fix the trigger safety not resetting all the time. I also mentioned that I sometimes have brass hit me on top of the head when firing it. They fixed the safety and replaced the extractor and ejector and sent it back to me. They were very...

    I know you forum veterans may get tired of these posts, but I wanted to tell about my first Steyr shooting time today. After driving down to Trussville to buy my new Steyr S9-A1 last week, I finally got down to the range today. After reading all of the wealth of information and posts on this...

    Hi guys, Just a quick question for the experts! Can you shoot .40S&W out of a 10mm gun? Or vice versa? Safely that is! Just wondering! Paul
