  1. Caracal C and F Series
    I'm new to Steyr / Caracal. I originally started looking at the M&P 9C or Shield as a EDC replacement, then moved from there to the Walther PPQ and then to the Steyr S9-A1. Then discovered Caracal C, only to find out the Caracal bought Steyr in 2002 (is that correct?) and the pistols were...

  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    I accidentally got hooked up with Reid Supply Co. via a design site. What really sold me on them was a sale they had on digital calipers and digital depth gauges. If you are reloading, you won't believe how wonderful it is to read out 1.590" for the OAL without squinting at a vernier caliper...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Been wanting to do something to enhance the grip of one of my favorite pistols for awhile. I tried the skateboard tape and the tactical bike tube and they worked okay but there were minor issues with those methods. I recently saw a stippling thread on Glocktalk that inspired me. The OP even...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    after handling the new M&P SHIELD 9 that has just been released I was wondering why Steyr doesn't try this market ? It's real big market right now here in the U.S. and could be a great opportunity for Steyr to become better know and popular as the fine firearm that we all know it is . Just a...
  6. Caracal C and F Series
    Does anyone know the dimensions of the SC ? All that I can find on Caracal's site is width & mag capacity . Also what will the street price be ?
  7. Holsters
    Just wanted to stop and help all the S Series owners. There are all kinds of resources out there for the M series owners that I've found, but none will tell you if those holsters will fit the S series. I have found throught lots of reading that some say that the m series holsters will fit the...
  8. Holsters
    Gentlemen, After enjoying my new C9-A1 so much and upon the advise of learned members I am considering a Blade Tech Kydex holster. Does anyone have pictures of the new Blade Tech offering especially with the sidearm holstered etc. I greatly appreciate your time. Many thanks Simon 150 rounds...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    The fired casing from my M40 (original, bought new around 2004) has always have firing drag mark, I thought it was by design.... then I read somebody's post saying there is some kind of "upgrade recoil spring" (or something in that nature) to fix this issue in the M9. Is such "upgrade"...
  10. Ask Bubits
    Mr Bubits, I've been a fan of your creation since it first came out. I work for Cold Steel in design and R&D. I really can appreciate the design and ergonomics that went into this weapon. The high grip,low bore axis,natural point of aim,and love the triangle/trapezoid sights !! Every aspect...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I have read MANY threads on extractors. Almost everyone in here knows there has been a new extractor design on the C9-A1. The good news I have only had FTE's with some garbage reload ammo from the local gun shop. I tried a few other brands and have not had an FTE in the last 350-400 rounds...
  12. New Member Check-In
    Gentlemen, after way too long I have taken the plunge. Tomorrow I pick up my Brand new Steyr C9-A1. She is perfect! I have been researching this for a good while now and could not find a better fitting, feeling or more accurate firearm. I demo'd many modern 9mm pistols and this, for me, has it...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey everyone looking to purchase a brand new m40 a-1 from a reputable source. I posted this two weeks ago and understand that they are available. Any info as to where I can contact someone or a website that may carry them. know body it seems has them or even carries Steyr. Any help would be great.

    I have a handed down M357 with the Date code of GOO (Oct 2000). It has not been fired until recently when I took it to the range. I put 150 rds through it so far. In about every 8 to 10 rds the shell wouldn't eject properly and jammed. I was shooting it with Ultramax, the re-manufactured ammo...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    It may be difficult to see in the picture but there are a if you look closely at the picture of the stock there are a few high gloss areas in the casting of the composite. This bothers me. The casting of the composite is not a consistent finish of a matt black. The majority of the stock is but...

    I am looking for my first CC pistol. The last gun I tried was a Kahr P9 and was very disappointed. I like the Glock 23 and Glock 19 but I would like to have the option of a safety,something slightly smaller and I'd like that safety to be somewhere good. I discovered Steyr S40-A1. It looks as if...
  17. M, C, L and S Series
    Yesterday I purchased a Steyr M9-A1. I went looking for a 9mm that would be easy to carry, but still be plenty shootable. Of all the firearms I handled, the M9-A1 felt the best to me. I like the ergo’s and especially like the ultra low bore axis. The only thing I did not like was the empty space...
  18. Caracal C and F Series
    I noticed in the scant literature I've read about the Caracal that it mentions a "roller pin" as being one of the big differences between it and the Steyr M series. What is a roller pin?
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    The biggest reason I was leaning towards the .40 was stopping power. I want a subcompact for the occasional conceal carry but I'm concerned about the handle length- thus the C9 enters the picture. I'm concerned, God forbid, I ever have to use it in a quick draw one hand save my life, the .40...
  20. The Pub
    Wichita PD decides to move away from .40S&W and back to 9mm, citing advances in bullet technologies that levels the playing field with regard to terminal ballistics. They are also issuing AR-15 rifles to all officers, citing emerging trends in active-shooter response tactics as well as some...
