  1. M, C, L and S Series
    As the title states, I put about 300 rounds through the new gen M9A1 and the casings eject directly to the face. This doesn't happen every shot but maybe 3 out of 10 and certainly is ammo related. Was curious if any of the owners of the new gen m9a1 has had this issue? Thanks.
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    ive been wearing my M and MA1's here in florida for years. For the first time i noticed that the sweat had gotten into my mag release and caused issues with rust and malfunctions of the release. I am left side carry, so the right side of the pistol was against my body. In particular it was the...
  3. Tactics and Training
    Today I got in the mail my ASG Airsoft Steyr M9 pistol. I have been watching eBay for some time and they came back into stock. So far so good. I have open the box, fondled it a bit, and read the brief instructions. The piece is very well built, steel frame makes it heavier than a real unloaded...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  5. Holsters
    I have a custom holster maker in Fayetteville who is working with me to come up with some designs for the Steyr....I'll keep ya'll posted on how they come out. I'm open to designs if anyone wants to submit. I'll take pics as they come out.
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    I just got a spare barrel in from a trade; its barrel serial is 30477XX. My first Steyr, and the one I shoot the most/all the time is an M9 and the barrel serial starts with a 0 as the first digit. I eyed the replacement when it came in and something looked different. Compared it to my old...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    Steyr could use a little more exposure. If someone with a few Steyrs could send them to Hickock45 he could shoot them and thousand and thousands of people would see them in action. If I worked at Steyr Arms I'd send him a few examples to evaluate. What do you think?
  8. Ask Bubits
    Mr. Bubits, I much appreciate your participation here! I wonder what you think of the new-ish Boberg pistols? Yes, they seem complicated, with many finely machined parts which drive the price up. But the design refinement seems so brilliant to me, and the jewelry-like beauty of the piece, all...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    What would you like to tell them about the A1 pistols that you don't like? For me it would have to be the ability of the gun's slide to be pushed slightly back when cocked. By the way, have new production guns been cured of this ill? I know there's a fix here for it but I am wondering if Steyr...
  10. Caracal C and F Series
    Gentlefolk; Newbie here -what is the relationship between Caracal and Steyr? Never heard of Caracal before I saw postings about the recall. Thx!
  11. Other Handguns
    Gentlefolk, Back around 1981 or so I fell in love with the Steyr GB...a MAjOR purchase for a grad student. fixed chrome barrel, blowback design, super-accurate for me, massive mag capacity for the time, in the running to be the U.S military sidearm, then got politicked out by Italy and...
  12. Other Handguns
    Anyone have the S&W version? I have read there is much ado about the S&W version. What are your thoughts?
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Title says it all, that's my question. I'm looking for a Steyr to conceal-carry and for some reason have always been researching the M series, but it's my understanding the S or C (is it?) are basically the same gun just smaller. Do any of you carry the M9? Should I go w/ a smaller version...

  15. Ask Bubits
    Looking over the internet, there is some information as to Mr. Bubits' designs etc. I am curious as to what his actual contributions were to the Glock design. Did he design the thing from the ground up, or just some of the features. One website says he was responsible for the Gen 3 design i.e...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    First post here, just joined a few minutes ago. I have a dilemma, I am not sure if I should go with an M9A1 or a Caracal F. Either way I want a full sized gun. I have never fired either but i have dry fired both and love the triggers. I was going for the Caracal and then I think I discovered...
  17. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Good morning all, I left a voicemail for Jeff about two and a half weeks ago as his colleague spoke to me and Jeff verbally confirmed with him to transfer me to his voicemail and leave a message about my inquiry. I was asking about getting a replacement extractor and the correct magazine...
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I was showing my new M9-A1 to my friends the other day and they both started laughing. Then, one of them said "It's a man licker!" They laughed for a good long while. This made me think that sales of Steyr products in the U.S.A. would likely surge if the word MANNLICHER was left off all...
  19. Other Handguns
    Since I know there are lots of CZ fans on this board - I just purchased a new Sarsilmaz K2. Quick description - .45 ACP, 14+1, DA/SA, steel frame, 4.5" barrel, 40 oz, with rail, Turkish made - looks like the Turks are putting out some nice stuff - and under $500. Wonderful gun - may have the...
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I just ordered a spare magazine for my C9-A1, and it's one of the new 17-rounders. The spring is EXTREMELY stiff, so I'm gonna load and unload it a couple of times, and leave it loaded for a while to see if it'll lighten up at all. Also, the +2 baseplate kinda sticks out beneath the bottom...
