  1. 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...

    Hi, I just picked up my new M9-A1 today. Can't wait to get to the range.

    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...

    It's a little premature for me to panic, but I think I might have just bought a Frankensteyr despite my best efforts. I did not even think that the advertisement said M9 instead of M9A1. The other thing that should have tipped me off is that the NIB gun shipped with 15 rounders instead of 17...

    My buddy has this rifle and I am going to trade for it. I looked up how to date them on here and several other places but can't figure this one out since it has no 3 letter date code, just a 6 digit serial number. It has the brown stock, iron sights and set trigger so I am also not exactly...

    For those of us late to the Steyr handgun game, this looked like a good deal on factory magazines. Just went on sale last night (20MAR13)

    Hello, I have a Steyr M9a1 with the date code IOW (Sept. 2010). I have not shot the pistol much but my friend is going to use it for a multi-day handgun course. Is there any way to tell if my gun has the updated extractor? I would just hate for it to be a problem mid-course. I am also...

    Mr. Bubits Can you give me some information about this gun? Here is a brief description...On the slide, it says Austria, a serial number, GOK Steyr Mannlicher..on the other side is says Steyr S9 9x19. Just some informative information would be very helpful.

    I've been scouring the web for more info on this, does anyone know the backstory on the Frankensteyrs? Mine is one of the PW Arms imports. Year code SOF. I have the M9 slide with the old extractor, the new frame with the rail. Serial number is in the 040 range, so are this refurbs? The frame has...

    BladeTech makes a great holster for both pistols. I'm not a fan of BladeTech's double mag pouch for IDPA/USPSA use, its just a little too crowded for me. Bushido Tactical here in Orlando sells a great mag pouch (by Pitbull Tactical) that can be custom-molded for Steyr and Caracal, but after...

    Tried to contact a member to make an offer on a holster but it keeps saying "cannot connect, try again". Am I doing something wrong?

    I recently purchased a M40-A1. I had a choice of either the M40 or the M40-A1. I went with the A1 because it was newer and held 12 rounds. I thought all A1's were made after 2010 but after reading on this forum I am finding out that this is not true. Is there a place to look up my serial # and...

    Hi all! I've been a lurker here for about a week trying to learn all I could about these awesome guns and thanks to everyone's input and information they've posted, I went on the hunt just to see if it was a viable option to carry. After calling about every shop in town, I found one that had a...

    Hi all, So I'm new to the Steyr world. I think the designs are really neat. I've been thinking about a 40SW as with the current craziness I have a hard time finding 9mm and 45ACP but 40SW is everywhere. A local LGS has a Stey M40-A1 with SOM date code, so 2005? Gun is in good shape and comes...

    Greetings- Most photos depicting new S40-A1's show the "CWO" date code - October 2010. Any newer codes out there? No real important reason to know - mere curiosity my only driving force. Would not mind having a CWO S40, though. Military designation, eh? Thanks&Cheers.
