  1. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey Gang, I know there are probably hundreds of threads about carry ammo on here, but I can't seem to find any information on Hornady Critical Duty 9mm +P. I was told by a coworker that the Critical Duty (CD) are longer bullets and that guns with shorter feed ramps have a hard time cycling...

    It has been a while since I last posted and thought I would share my fantastic experience with my new M9-A1. I sold my old M9 to a friend of mine and used the money to finally get the new M9-A1 in March. I purchased it from Trellix Tactical and must say it was a pleasure doing business with...

I pushed the trigger froward and engaged the set trigger. having never fired a rifle with such a light trigger it took me a while to get used to it. after a few shots I began to really enjoy Shooting the scout rifle. my only Concern...

    Hello everyone. I am new to the M series of pistols and looking forward to learning about my new carry guns. I have owned Glocks, Rugers, XD's, and Sig in semi autos. I happened across a used Steyr and had to give it a go. I currently have a M9, M9-A1, and a M40-A1. This Sunday I am trading...

    Like the title of the thread says, I've got a blind date with a March 2013 production Steyr M40-A1. I have never even so much as held one, but that didn't keep me from ordering one today. I'm super excited and I'm anxious to get to know this pistol. One area that I seek knowledge in is...

    There's a .223 Scout on Gunbroker that someone has been trying to sell for a while that has s single set trigger on it. Anyone ever seen that on any other Scout? Seems like a really great option, not to mention that it has a threaded barrel. Does anyone have some experience shooting a .223 Scout...

    I have just bought a Steyr M-A1. I have alot more long gun experience than pistol experience but that is about to change! I am a very tall guy with huge hands. The M-A1 was the 9mm that fit my paws the best. I hope to fire the pistol this weekend.:thumbsup:

    On an older S9 9mm can the current 17 round M9A1 mags be used in it?
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    I was "lucky" enough to score 2 boxes of 50rds each (100rds total) of Winchester SXZ 9mm Luger 115gr FMJ Flat Nose "Training". Has anyone else had experience with this ammo? My M9-A1 ran great and all but as I was disassembling it to clean it tonite, I noticed it was extremely dirty after...
  13. Other Handguns
    Hey all, I picked up a box of Russian LVE 9x17 (.380) cartridges from my LGS for use in my Bersa Thunder 380. I was wondering if any of you had any experience with this ammo. At $8.00 for a box of 50 I figured it was worth trying out. I just don't want a bad round to blow up my gun! Thanks!

  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello All, I ordered a few M9 17 round magazines from R&R Arms out in MN back in Jan. For various reasons I only got my hands this week. Three were simply wrapped in a plastic with their barcode label on the tight plastic. The other two were wrapped in the same tight plastic, but they were...

    So, I tried to cook today. This, as usual, filled the house with a fine haze of smoke, which isn't a good sign for my culinary skills, bit does make for awesome photo-ops with my Steyr C9A1 with Viridian, since the laser is very clearly visible. I just hope the downstairs neighbors don't call...
  18. Holsters
    I've never owned a Kydex holster. My question is this. Is the hard Kydex material rougher on gun finishes than say leather or nylon? Does repeated holstering of a weapon in Kydex wear on the finish quicker than soft leather or nylon?
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    Title says it all, that's my question. I'm looking for a Steyr to conceal-carry and for some reason have always been researching the M series, but it's my understanding the S or C (is it?) are basically the same gun just smaller. Do any of you carry the M9? Should I go w/ a smaller version...
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi guys new here and looking at my first Steyr. I've had a fullsize 1911 for a while and recently acquired my CHL. I've been carrying my 1911 and I actually conceal it quite well for it's size, but ultimately started to think about what ifs and started to feel like something with a little more...
