  2. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hello, dear friends I am interested to know - should the disassemble lever snap into its former place automatically when I set the slide after disassembling? Ealier it snaped into its place automatically, but after I completely disassembled my Steyr M-A1 the level does not want to and I have to...
  3. Other Rifles
    So here is my deal. I have $900-$1350 to spend on a new AR. I want a multi purpose rifle. I am not sure what to do about piston vs DI. I am not interested in building a gun. Your thoughts are appreciated. I have been thinking: sig 516, pws mk116, stag, daniel defense and Adcor BEAR
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Are the .40 and .357 magazines interchangeable? Or can you use one for the other, but not the other way around? I have both M40 and S40, and wonder what else will work. I know the M40 mags fit and work in the S40, but sticks out a fair bit. Also, do any other manufacturers magazines fit and...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey guys, Wondering if it's possible to use 9mm Steyr rounds in my Steyr pistols? And if not, why not? What was the 9mm Steyr used in? What is the difference between the Steyr round and the 9mm Luger round? Any physical differences? Thanks, Paul
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    I've been thinking about a C9A1, but I just took the time to compare an M9A1 and an S9A1 side by side, and I was left wondering why? The S9 slide is just barely shorter than the M9... but the shorter grip makes it much easier to carry concealed. With the full sized grip and almost the full...
  7. Caracal C and F Series
    Finally made up my mind to get one. Will be EDC if it is as reliable as reputed. I need to choose between F and C, normal sights. Size is not an issue. Trigger reset is. I prefer shorter reset. Can you guide me as to if the F really has a trigger reset as bad as sometimes reported?
  8. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I bought a drill press awhile back and I've been having fun drilling anything that looks drillable. The biggest hassle has been getting the work jigged at the right spot. How I wished the DP had a laser light... Duh, mad scramble for the night stand, where did I stick it, voila! It didn't work...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi guys, I am strongly considering an M9-A1. A few years ago, I switched over my handgun collection to Glocks for simplicity. I've been looking for something similar to a Glock and I think the M9-A1 fits the bill. Before making the jump, I do have a few questions. 1) I saw a post about Steyr...
  10. Carry Issues
    http://www.itstactical.com/intellicom/physical-security/flying-with-a-firearm-and-airline-travel-tips-by-deviant-ollam/ Great video! Lots of great tips. I was always told that if you check in with firearms, your bags are less likely to get lost.
  11. Ammunition and Reloading
    next time you wonder what exactly is the difference between .223 rem and 5.56 nato the answer is 12,000 psi. .223 rem is rated at about 50,000 psi and 5.56 nato is rated at about 62,000 psi. i think there also might be some very slight chamber dimentional differences.i very much like the...
  12. 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...
  13. Caracal C and F Series
    Wow! I have finally found THE gun that fits my hands correctly..... :thumbsup: Why did I not buy a Caracal C sooner, love it more than my F. Bye bye Glock 19......;) Quick crappy cell phone pic, will get some better ones when the sun comes out in July..... :p
  14. 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?
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Have been looking for a new M9-A1 and came across an ad in Gun Broker offering the pistol at $419. The ad claims these guns are from a failed deal in the middle east and have been sourced to PW Arms in Washington as opposed to the folks in Alabama. I am curious as to the identity of the...
  16. Caracal C and F Series
    Hi guys, I realize I've not been on this forum in a while, but I guess I really missed something! What the H is a Caracal? And why all the posts on here about it? I've never heard of it before, and by the volume of posts about it (and all the variants available), evidently it's been around...
  17. Anything Else
    Can anyone please furnish Pix and deminsions, etc. of the Barrel Release Lever Spring. I've been searching for months and can't find one to purchase. Maybe I can find someone to make one. Year-1914, model-1909 in 6.35(25ACP). Thanks,
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    A few years ago CDNN sold 9mm slide/barrel conversions for the MA1. Anyone know where I could get one these days? Might anyone have one they would sell?
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    I am in the process of doing a trade for an S40. Unfortunately I thought it was a S40-A1. I did a search for a comparison between the 2, but couldnt find anything. What are the differences, good, bad, indifferent? Would I be better off getting an S40-A1? I currently own a M9-A1. Thank You in advance
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    I know the differences in the 3 models . Such as the C9 is a hybrid of the S9-A1 slide & the frame of the M9-A1 . I've been told the C9 has a better different trigger than both ? Why is that and what is the difference? Also any internal or other differences in this model compared to the other...
