    I also noticed that the strike was more off center then I would have imagined. Other than that the pistol has fired flawlessly. NOT that I believe it did but COULD the BT striker cups have aided or caused the light primer strike?

    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.
  3. Holsters
    MODS, if this is against the rules please remove I would like it to go to someone that NEEDS 1 and that wont just turn around and sell it so they could make a few extra bucks. This was my 2nd attempt at making a holster and it came out great until I screwed up at the very end where the belt...

    M40 A1: What can it do, what can go with it ? What I do know is that: Current M40 can be converted to 357 sig with a barrel change M40 and M357 mags are interchangable if not the same IGB and Steyr sell conversion barrels There are stocks available but no 16" barrels BT and and an Israeli...

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to the gun arena in general. Purchased an S40 late last year and during the most recent cleaning I noticed a small fissure in the multifunctional element. I have disassembled it using the various guides posted on the site and have "reassembled" it with what I...

    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?

    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...

    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...

    I just finished up doing a little work on my M9-A1, trying to deal with the slide clicking, out of battery issue, and found something interesting. I also have issue with rapping, not slamming, or hitting hard, the mag base plate when the pistol is cocked, and the slide backs out of battery. I...

    Is this normal? Before I stir up a storm with the on-line guy from whence this gun came, I thought I'd ask you guys I just received, today, my "new" M9-A1 Steyr pistol NIB, still had factory grease on rails, etc. but . . unlike any other pistol I've ever purchased (and I have Glocks...

    Now that the gun legislation is temporarily over until obama and his cronies come back at us again with it thinking that this is the holy grail of controlling violence we can start purchasing firearms again. I was at the NRA Rally in Houston on Saturday and stopped by Steyr's booth. They had...

    Just recently purchased my M40-A1. I LIKE IT... Looking into getting a S40-A1, feedback on this is highly appreciated. Thanks.
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...

    I re-shot my A1 series video dealing with the myth on the lockup. Stay tuned as it uploads. I will reiterate my findings in text format in here as well again.

  18. Other Rifles
    Hi all- new member here... I did a forum search and came up empty so i thought i'd ask; I recently acquired a Steyr Mannlicher-L FS in .243. The rifle is from the 80's or 90's from what i can tell, and the number on the barrel, and bolt assembly doesn't match. IIRC the bolt assembly has 2...

    For those of us late to the Steyr handgun game, this looked like a good deal on factory magazines. Just went on sale last night (20MAR13)

    Installing the 2 part Delrin bushing, I slightly folded one of halves. I got the bushing half straightened back out and then intalled it on the striker. The gun seems to be working fine. Is this going to be ok?
