  2. M, C, L and S Series
    ok so i've not fully decided to purchase the M-9 that everyone was so kind to advise me about. i would like to know if the A-1 from "on point arms is worth the additional money ? ($132.00) is the A-1 much improved over the previous model?....enough to justify the difference in price for the...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    I got my M9A1 yesterday(actually my first handgun), can't wait to try it out. It might be a little while though, shhhhhh! Don't tell the wife I bought another gun. :lol: I just wanna say thanks to all members and moderaters that keep the site up to date. I doubt I would have bought a steyr...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Do you think "internet guns" are inferior? What I mean to say is, the guns that dealers choose to sell via the web versus in-store. Here's why I ask: All of my guns have been purchased "over-the-counter" and I've had the ability to choose which one I wanted, rather than getting whatever it is...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    I just realized that maybe I could switch the frames and slides on my Steyr 9 and 40. Has anyone done this successfully??
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    New M-A1 with manual safety 9/12/2005 Yes, you read that correctly. Received the new M-A1 last Friday. Have not had a chance to shoot it yet, but like the ergonomics of the pistol very much. I was allowed to order the model with manual safety after writing a waiver to Steyr regarding any...
  7. Tactics and Training
    Hi, I have to admit I am new and NOT SO familiar with some terms or language sometime or often used here like stovepiping, out of battery, FTEs, CCW, etc and what and where a Pistol Grip Plug is used for? Sirs, any volunteer in constructing a Gunning Dictionary [sticky] here. :oops: Thanks.

  9. Anything Else
    I understand the Steyr M40 was the first pistol on the market, then the M9. I'm new to the Steyr as I've been a Glock owner (8) and have a 357Sig bbl for my G35 also my G23. My duty gun is a Glock 22 .40 short & weak.LOL Due to the fact the M40 was first do both M40 & M9 use the same frame...
  10. Tactics and Training
    Is this a no-no or not?? 5 out of 6 home preggy tests agree :lol: Still got to get the doctor's test though. we have a competition handgun class this month at an indoor range. Then she was going to start idpa w/ me once a month on an outdoor range? ...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    Is the S40 that much smaller than a G23...or does it just look that way in photos?
  12. Carry Issues
    I went to the range the other day to site in my Marlin 60 and you know I can't go to the range without taking the twins along. After getting the .22 sited in and knocking a golfball all over the place with it :D I pulled out the Steyrs. I put 100 rounds through the S9 and 50 through the S40...

  14. M, C, L and S Series
    Just on a whim while searching some guns out for customers I checked the status on Styer pistols. RSR Wholesale ( sells ONLY to FFL's ), had just one M40A1 listed as in stock. It is listed as 2004 production and has 10 round magazines. Dealer price is lower than a Glock
  15. AUG, MSAR
    I'm dying to get get an AUG or USR ( have been for a few years) and I was wondering where the prices are currently. I ask because I haven't been able to find a stable price difference between AUG's (which seem to start around $3000) and USR's (which seemed to start around $2500). I know USR's...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Does anyone know why the slight grey/green coloring in the S9 slide coating? Was it for a particular purpose, ie. ID it as the shorter slide?
  17. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello all, First off, this is my first post to the club, and I hope the boards do well and maybe Steyr execs may get wind of our interest here in the US. I have been thinking (after recently buying a Glock 30) about the similarities and differences between my Steyr and Glock. I just wanted to...
  18. Other Rifles
    Just found the site here. I have a Steyr McMillian Tactical HB. Any other Steyr bolt guns out there ? Scott
  19. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I know the spring on the M9 is captured....but those of us who use the stainless steel rod from 12 Volt Man have removed it from the factory rod and reinstalled it on the new one. Does anybody know what the rated strength of the M9 spring is? 15 lbs? 16 lbs? I'm willing to experiment with some...
