    Hey all, I had the same problem most of you do with my L9-A1, even after 500 rounds of a variety of bullet weights. True, it likes the hotter stuff but I bought it for plinking. Thus, I made a steel guide rod and used a variable 14 lb 1911 spring (NOT the plunger spring which I tried first and...

    Like many others, my gun was having cartridge ejection problems with quality ammo. Turns out that my guide-rod assembly was "over-sized" by 1/2000ths of an inch, which kept the slide and firing pin from properly retracting, which in turn jammed up my gun after almost every shot. They replaced...

    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.

    I'm trying to troubleshoot the erratic ejection on my C9A1, and I heard that erratic ejection often is due to a faulty extractor. I also heard that a good extractor will hold the round in place as it's pulled back, and if you clear the pistol with no mag in it, the round should still kick out...

    As I mentioned elsewhere, because I've moved away from the .40 caliber, I am hoping to trade my M40s for M9s once the classified section is working again. In the meantime, I've sold off a couple of other guns, and so I decided to modernize the Steyr collection: Yesterday I picked up an M9-A1...

    I thought about picking up an M9-A1 a few years ago, but held off because of the problems I was reading about. Mostly FTF and ejection issues. I haven't read about any problems in a while. Are the new manufacture M9-A1s good to go?

    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...

    Hello Steyr Fans, I went to the range for the first time with my new to me Steyr M9 (not A1) that came with two ten round mags. I shot some other handguns, namely Sig P226, Beretta PX4, and XD9. I purchased the M9 after reading so many good things about the accuracy of the 9mm version of this...

    Just recently purchased my M40-A1. I LIKE IT... Looking into getting a S40-A1, feedback on this is highly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello, this is my first post. The other day I was able to do a bit of horse trading and walked away with a Steyr M40A1 with three mags and a box of hollowpoints. I've only got serious time behind Glock 9mms (my first pistols, and what I carry currently), but I knew of Steyrs, had heard good...

    Greetings, Purchased a M40-A1 last February, and finally made it to the range yesterday. Was a bit hesitant on purchasing this pistol because of problems fully explored on this forum. Happy, and relieved to report that the pistol functioned perfectly. Only had time to fire about 50 rounds (I...

    Attended a pistol class 4-6-13. The class was given by 914 Consulting at C2Shootng and it was a Vickers Shooting Method class. The class was great, the Steyr not so much. It started off fine, you know the drill. You are the only guy that shows up with "the other Austrian Pistol". Had a custom...

    Hello, and glad to be here! I have recently became a new Steyr owner and am happy I did. I purchased new PW ARMS Steyr M9 from Cabelas. I have had problems as far as the direction of ejection of shells, but I do like the gun. Will this correct itself after break in? My round count is around 300...

    Just picked up my M9A1 today and have some questions. 1. When I release the mag catch lever the slide comes forward and hits the mag, becoming stuck. When I hit mag lever down with some force(like some people do to load their pistols) the slide did finally go forward, but this isn't something I...

    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. Also, what is a good round to shoot...

    Here are some pics of the 1 I made. I just want to get a feel for if the investment is worth it and if I would have any clientele.

    This is the Steyr S9A1 sub compact model, amazing feel in the hand, amazing trigger, better than ANY Glock I have ever fired. She came with 2 10 rd clips and a nice case. The trapezoid sights are going to be a hit (no pun intended), target acquisition is very fast and I cannot wait to get her to...

    Forgive me if this has been covered before. My question is this: Does the "new" extractor and plunger set that Steyr sends out correct the FTE & weak ejection or is it sorta hit & miss? The reason I ask is that it would be easier to put the 1911 spring in while I had the parts out if the newer...
