  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I have an m40 that I've owned for about 10 years. Just recently it started jamming on feed. I've put 1000s of rounds through this weapon with no problems until recently. I thought maybe it was magazine issues so I bought several new mags. I've tried several different types of ammo. When the...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    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. Other Rifles
    Are the triggers the same for the Model M/S/L the same as the SSG 69? I picked up an older Model M '06 yesterday with the type 1 non adjustable trigger. It would be fine for bench work but at under 1.5 pounds its too light in general. Steyr said I could buy the type 2 for bukoo bucks, but I see...

    I just picked up my first Steyr pistol from Cabela's in Owatonna, Minnesota - an M9-A1. I actually traded my Sig P229 .40 S&W for the M9. Date code is LWR - Feb 2013, so fairly new production. I came across the Steyr after researching the Caracal and learned that they were designed by the same...
  5. 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...

    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...

    Hi there, as the title says, the edge of the feed ramp of my M9A1 (Frankensteyr) just broke (it's a small piece) but the gun is only 4,000 rounds give or take a few hundred. And living where I do, it's nearly impossible to get a new barrel. Also the paperwork for getting a new barrel is hell...

    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...
  9. Other Handguns
    Today I was able to take my Taurus TCP out for a spin, and I must say she handles like a dream. Between me, my wife, and a friend of mine, the little TCP shot 80 rounds of cheap Russian ammo ($8 for a box of 50), and 50 American Eagle (or some such) flawlessly! I had no failures to feed or to...

    I just got a spare barrel in from a trade; its barrel serial is 30477XX. My first Steyr, and the one I shoot the most/all the time is an M9 and the barrel serial starts with a 0 as the first digit. I eyed the replacement when it came in and something looked different. Compared it to my old...

    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...

    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...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    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...

    Does anyone know what accessories for a Glock can fit nicely on the Steyr M series?

    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:

    Okay I have looked through the form and couldn't find any info, I just added a S40-A1 to my family. the first thing that I noticed was the Mag release is so hard I have to rotate the gun in my hand to get it in a position to create enough presser to release it. is there anyway to lighten the...

    Hey guys, just thought I'd check in, I tend to lurk, read a lot but decided to "take the plunge", this seems like a great forum and TONS of info. I've read quite a few posts where other members were having complications with their Steyrs and that got me to thinking (dangerous I know) I have an...

    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...

    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...
