  1. M, C, L and S Series
    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.

    Proud owner of a brand new SA1 .40 How often should I clean this weapon ? The Manual recommendation is after every use. I cleaned it out of the box. Put 50 rounds down range with no problems. Went home and cleaned it last night. It seemed very dirty -took many patches etc.. Perhaps the FMJ 180...

    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...

    For the most part the brass skims just over the top of my head, but sometimes... it doesn`t. The picture above is from my L9A1 ejecting spent brass directly back at my face; this particular little bugger landed directly between my temple and the arm of my eyepro and happily sat there until I...

    Hi, I just picked up my new M9-A1 today. Can't wait to get to the range.

    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?
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    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 All, Checking in from Bucks County, Pa. Just picked up a new, M9..can't wait to get to Wicen's Shooting Range. I've been overwhelmed by the conflicting information regarding the pro's and con's of this firearm. So, what's the bottom line? What should I look for first if issues arise...

    Happy Memorial Day! I'm having a dis-assembly problem with my M40 handgun while trying to remove the sub frame from the polymer grip. I can't get the manual safety engagement pin to come out. I've followed the online sub frame removal tutorial to the letter I believe and still can't get it to...

    It's a little premature for me to panic, but I think I might have just bought a Frankensteyr despite my best efforts. I did not even think that the advertisement said M9 instead of M9A1. The other thing that should have tipped me off is that the NIB gun shipped with 15 rounders instead of 17...

    G,day all, I recently recieved my new M40A1. The manufacture date is LOD. So I contacted Steyr Austria about a possible Extractor upgrade and they in turn sent me one via North Sylva here in Toronto. It arrived free of charge in a very timely manner. I just have one question and I apologize if...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    I almost did not get this pistol because of all the problem threads posted here. My M9 is 100% reliable after 200 rds fired out of the box and will group 3"@25 yds. highly recommended.
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey there, I am new to handguns in general, and just purchased a Steyr M40-A1. I love the way this gun feels and shoots, but noticed primer swipes that have me a little concerned. From researching it seems others have primer swipe marks with this gun as well, but when the swipe extends all the...

    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...

    Been a while since I have been back here. Anyway just a heads up guys, I was able to purchase a March 2013 (make date) M40-A1 from Trellix Tactical, Plano Texas, I think they still have 8 in stock for those of our brother's interested. They have it in auction in GB at a buy now price of 509. I...

    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...
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    I've never really concerned myself with my M9-A1's history or rather background, I just assumed it was a Steyr like MANY others and that all the #'s matched up (frame, slide and barrel) Well, scrolling thru some old posts I find a reference to "FrankenSteyr" after some research I've learned my...
