    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...

    Hi everyone, first post here - thought I'd attempt to be helpful rather than lurking about (as I'm used to). Hopefully this conversation instigates a better understanding of these extraction issues. I recently had a conversation via email with Jeff about extraction issues. His concluding...

    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 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...

    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...

    Hello, I've been reading over the threads on the forum for a few months, looking for information, and decided it's time to register. I acquired an M40-A1 last October, and it has become my favorite polymer frame pistol, beating out pretty much everybody else's offerings. and I can see why it...

    Alright so I just picked up a new M9-A1 date of manufacture was March 2013 and it is an SAI import not a frakenstyer from what I can tell. I had an early s40 ages ago and loved it but sold it to pay for school I have now replaced it with this new m9-a1. I am curious as I am having dreaded...

    Hi folks, brand new to the club but I've been trying to track down a M9-A1 for a little while now and have a question. The pistol I'm considering appears to be a Gen2? M9-A1 model with date stamp: P0Y, I believe if I've read that right it would be an August 2007 production date. Here's a pic...

    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...

    I own a June 02'M9 and an April 08' M40-A1,and there doesn't seem to be any issues with extraction or feeding. Through scouring the threads here,and reading some of the issues that members have been having,I'm wondering if the Canadian versions are experiencing the same issues. Because of...

    Good morning all, I left a voicemail for Jeff about two and a half weeks ago as his colleague spoke to me and Jeff verbally confirmed with him to transfer me to his voicemail and leave a message about my inquiry. I was asking about getting a replacement extractor and the correct magazine...

    I was in my LGS today and of all guns he could deal with me on it had to be a Gen3 Glock 19. I said I would never own one because of the grip but given the current worries over gun bans I could not pass up the gun brand new with 3 extra 15rnd mags. Guess what, it's brand new and already has a...

    Just been reading about some of the Glock's woes with irratic extraction and brass to the head issues. Thier "fix" has been to remove the extractor and polish the top and bottom of it. Supposed to fix most of the issues of hot brass to the head. Has anyone tried a similar approach to the Steyr's...

    After two range trips with my S9-A1 I'm still a bit perplexed about the sight picture. I've been following this diagram: http://www.steyrclub.com/vb/threads/4904-Steyr-Trap-Sights-Guide but I'm still shooting high. My question is when you are looking at the front sight do you see any of the...

    I hope everyone is well. I just purchased a new S9-A1 from a local dealer and from what I can tell, the serial number does not fall into the recall and, I believe, was manufactured in 2011 (VWO). I am just looking for any tips anyone can forward along that will help me get more acquainted to my...

    Hi! Coming across this forum is a gold mine! :) I have recently acquired a Steyr M9A1, date code Z0F (June 2004 i think). The previous owner shaved off the chamber indicator to get rid of the FTE's. Is this true at all? :) Thank you guys for accepting my registration!

    Hey guys, Jeff here at SAI just wanting to let shooters know, that may be having extraction issues with their Steyr pistol especially the PW Arms guns, that I am currently out of my supply of extractors and expect some soon. Contact me at [email protected] in about 30 days for an update on...
