    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...

    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...

    Greetings everyone. This is my first post here. Yesterday I took delivery of a brand new PW Arms M9-A1 from Cabelas. Today, I took it out for a test ride and had an odd experience. I'm going to chalk this up to issues with the ammo, but maybe someone here has seen this before. I fired ten...
  4. Forum Issues
    When I go to pick up my new piece from the gun shop are there any opinions about firing it then and there out of the box? I don't want to find out there is a problem after I get home. Should I just use snap caps at the gun shop? Should I fully clean and lubricate it myself at home first before...

    Since I know there are lots of CZ fans on this board - I just purchased a new Sarsilmaz K2. Quick description - .45 ACP, 14+1, DA/SA, steel frame, 4.5" barrel, 40 oz, with rail, Turkish made - looks like the Turks are putting out some nice stuff - and under $500. Wonderful gun - may have the...

    After quite a bit of shopping around, I settled on the C9-A1 as my first quality pistol. I have owned a Hi-Point C9 I'm in the process of selling, and a little Phoenix HP22A that makes a dandy pocket pistol, bot nothing "name brand" or approaching the quality of the Steyr. So, here's a couple...
  7. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hello, guys I am interested to know - there is the so called Threaded Barrel 9x19, 115mm, (4-1/2") for Steyr M A1 pistol. As we know it is aprox. 1/2" longer than a factory barrel. So, if we replace the factory barrel the shot from the Threaded Barrel must be more powerful. Thereby what is the...

    Moderate lurker, first time poster. I am looking at the new A3's manufactured by Sabre Defence. Specifically looking at one with a NATO stock. A few questions for the experts. - Are the NATO stocks feeding AR mags as reliable and desirable? I sure would like to use common mags. - What are...

    I purchased one of the Dan's Ammo M9-A1's a couple of months ago. The gun was flawless for approx. 150 rounds. This past weekend, I intended to use it at an advanced personal defense handgun course ( http://tac2.net/index.php?template=classdetail&recno=4 ) here in east Tennessee. Much to my...

    Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has done the trigger cleanup tutorial or any of the others, and if so what result did you get? Was your gun better and still reliable??
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    A few years back I shot an acquaintance's M9 and I loved it. I was on the lookout for an m9/m9a1 ever sense. Found an individual selling one this last weekend and so I bought it. Guess I got a lemon. Took it shooting today and it failed to feed nearly every round. I checked both magazines and...

    Hi guys, Hopefully you can point me in the right direction to resolving this. I (finally) shot some Ranger JHP through the M40 and I'm a bit upset. This is supposed to be my "go to" gun and home defense weapon, but I can't put more than 2 rounds down without a failure to feed. Seems that the...

    Hi M9A1 shooters, A few weeks ago I started a thread about FTE's (failure to feed) on my new pistol. http://www.steyrclub.com/vb/threads/8742-Improvements-fixes-Steyr-made-on-the-2nd-gen-M9-A1 I took all the advice I got into consideration and went back to the range to break in my gun. I shot...
  14. Anything Else
    Hi, I'm a G19 user since I can remember. I test a Steyr M9 & I love it. Before buying my own, I have a big doubt. In the pool more than 70% of the people love it anda use for as CCW. BUT more than 20 NOT. RELIABILITY: this is my concern, 1. different types of ammo 2. cleaning and aso on. ¿Is...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    The UPS knocked on my door today and delivered my newly refinished S40. The gun looks absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, I don't have a digital camera, so I can't post any pictures. I noticed when I put a fresh magazine into the gun and tried to chamber a round, the slide did not fully return...
  16. The Pub
    Just a noob saying hi! :D I have always been a bit of a Steyr fan since I bought a bnz K98 that shot .5 to .75 MOA with surplus ammo. I had an AUG that I sold *still kicking self in butt* :x and I am looking to get another AUG soon as well as a scout. I do have a question from just...
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    I'd like to bring in 1000 rounds of FMJ 9mm ammo. Who knows what the Steyr's like and don't like when it comes to ball ammo? Anyone know of any good deals out there. Just checked with ammoman.com and am open to other suggestions.

    A second message from me. My M40 is an early gun, serial number in the 11-hundreds and I have no idea how many rounds any previous owners fired through it. I just recently bought it and cleaned it (but not removing the guts from the frame). Then I went shooting. Two 12 round, brand new...

    This is my second time firing my M9. The first time, I fed 50 WWB 115 grain JHPs with no failures. Tonight, I fired 50 Remington UMC FMJs I had one failure to extract and the gun wanted to feed another round into the chamber. I also fired about 100 WWB FMJs, and after feeding one round the...
