  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. M, C, L and S Series
    I just picked up my first Steyr pistol from Cabela's in Owatonna, Minnesota - an M9-A1. I actually traded my Sig P229 .40 S&W for the M9. Date code is LWR - Feb 2013, so fairly new production. I came across the Steyr after researching the Caracal and learned that they were designed by the same...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello everyone, new to the site.. Sorry if this is somewhere else. I did a search but didn't find anything. Does anyone have inside info on when there might be more S9s? I messaged Steyr a couple of days ago, but I'm sure they're sick of answering this question, so they probably ignore it...

    Hi, folks. I've been a long-time owner of the Steyr M -- I have two M40s that I got right after they came out. But over the years I have moved away from the .40 and now in autos I shoot mainly 9mm and .45. I've sold off most of my .40s but it has occurred to me that since I really like the...

    Hello everyone recently I was able to purchase a perfect example of a Zephyr with set triggers. This has been a 20 year search for me. Now the down side unfortunately the magazine is missing. Are there any sources for these magazines, original or aftermarket? I contacted Steyr directly and they...
  7. Other Rifles
    Hi guys, I recently bought an ssg69 PIV with the 16 inch barrel. I put a swarovski z5 3.5-18 on it. Also mounted using 1 inch steyr rings. Scope has 58 inches of elev adjustment but is running out past 400m when I am shooting. Can anyone shed some light on this, is it no good past 400m ? Or...

  9. Other Rifles
    Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and was wondering if there was a resource where I could read up on and learn about the different model bolt action rifles with the model-letter designations (L,M, SSG, for instance)? I have searched the forum and learned a bit, but was looking for...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...

    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...
  12. Holsters
    With no luck finding anything online for my M9 A1 I went to a local gun shop and tried about 20 different holsters. No Fobus would fit, tried a few Galco's, nothing, tried the Tagua's and finally found one!! :) It's leather, paddle holster for a Springfield XDM 5", p/n PD2-670!! A little snug...
  13. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I just finished up doing a little work on my M9-A1, trying to deal with the slide clicking, out of battery issue, and found something interesting. I also have issue with rapping, not slamming, or hitting hard, the mag base plate when the pistol is cocked, and the slide backs out of battery. I...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    I am considering selling my M40 s/n in the 7to 8000 range with six 10 round magazines. Less than 1000 rds through it. I am having trouble coming up with a value for an m40. I see plenty of m40-a1 for sale but not the m40. Any suggestion or starting points?
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Just curious I bought a M40 A-1 today at local gunshot. I have owned a M40 for quite a while and noticed the M40 a-1 doesn't have the loaded chamber indicator. The instruction manual indicates it should have one so I am a bit confused. I knew the manual safety was gone and the addition of the...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Met the venerable and amiable Jeff Reece at the show, yesterday... he remembered my last name from emails. He is just as friendly and great to be around as he sounds on the phone. I got to check out the L9-A1. The plastic frame is longer and the slide and sub-assemb. won't fit into the older...
  17. New Member Check-In
    Just recently purchased my M40-A1. I LIKE IT... Looking into getting a S40-A1, feedback on this is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    TL,DR: I need a barrel for the Steyr M9 that is >6" and makes the overall length of the handgun >10.5". Do they make those? Hi guys, I live in the great People's Republic of California, where we have a roster of approved handguns. Because this requires the manufacturer to submit numerous...

    Can anyone on here help me locate a magazine clip for my Steyr 308 Mannlicher Model L. It is the one with the release on the trigger guard. I have been in contact with Steyr Arms in Trussville Alabama and they keep telling me that they should be on the next order in a couple of weeks. I have...
  20. The Pub
    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...
