break

  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I've read that the gap between the slide and frame on the new L9A1 series pistols is much more pronounced than previous versions of the gun. I wonder if any of you owners could break out a micrometer and put a number to that? Any info would be appreciated!
  2. Holsters
    I don't get to this forum much, but I thought I'd mention that I ordered a thumb break pancake holster from A.E. Nelson. I had to leave the gun for maybe 4 to 6 weeks. That was no big deal since I live about 20 minutes from their shop. When you walk in the front door, you immediately sense that...

    Hello Steyr Club, I have a latest generation Steyr M9-A1 that I bought brand new. I have always thought it was particularly hard to rack/chamber/cock, etc. My friend has an identical steyr and when handling his I did notice that in comparison his was a lot easier to rack the slide back. I...

    Trellix Tactical out of Plano, TX has L9-A1's in stock. Spoke to Phil, very amiable guy. Price is definitely good to go. Just a heads up for any of you who would rather deal with a human than Gunbroker. :salute:

    It has been a while since I last posted and thought I would share my fantastic experience with my new M9-A1. I sold my old M9 to a friend of mine and used the money to finally get the new M9-A1 in March. I purchased it from Trellix Tactical and must say it was a pleasure doing business with...

    Hello All, Checking in from Bucks County, Pa. Just picked up a new, M9..can't wait to get to Wicen's Shooting Range. I've been overwhelmed by the conflicting information regarding the pro's and con's of this firearm. So, what's the bottom line? What should I look for first if issues arise...

    I am thinking of getting a precision rifle in 308Win. I looked through SSG69, SSG04, CZ750, TRG22, FN A3G, and even Blazer Tac2. I found that CZ750 and SSG04 are probably best choices for me. But I heard that SSG04 stock is not good. Some guys even reported cracked stock. I know that McMillan...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...

    Been a while since I have been back here. Anyway just a heads up guys, I was able to purchase a March 2013 (make date) M40-A1 from Trellix Tactical, Plano Texas, I think they still have 8 in stock for those of our brother's interested. They have it in auction in GB at a buy now price of 509. I...

    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...

    Hello all, I have recently picked up a new (well new to me) Pro Hunter in 376 Steyr. I have a couple questions if anyone can help me out. First, I've ordered the updated bolt cam and sent it to John on here to switch out and polish. I'm also having him do the bolt knob conversion to the...

    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...

    Okay I have looked through the form and couldn't find any info, I just added a S40-A1 to my family. the first thing that I noticed was the Mag release is so hard I have to rotate the gun in my hand to get it in a position to create enough presser to release it. is there anyway to lighten the...

    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...
