    I also noticed that the strike was more off center then I would have imagined. Other than that the pistol has fired flawlessly. NOT that I believe it did but COULD the BT striker cups have aided or caused the light primer strike?

    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...

    Here's the set-up. Steyr M357-A1, excellent condition. Functions 100% in every way - but one. Georgia Arms Canned Heat factory reloaded .357 SIG FMJ ammo. When fired, somewhere through a magazine, the gun will begin producing light primer strikes to the point it will not fire. Gun field...

    Hey all, I have an unfired AUG A3 NATO that I am interested in selling. I will consider trades so just let me know what you have. I like the gun and don't need the money but I am just trying to clean up / switch out some of my collection. Let me know if you are interested in making an offer.

    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...

    Does anyone else get a dark carbon streak on one side of their brass almost the entire length of the case after firing? I was just wondering if this is a common occurrence with the M9 or if it is just mine. Or maybe it's from the ammo I'm using.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...

    Hello - new guy here. Found a really nice SSG69 - manufactured early 1990's but only fired 100 rds from new. Put into storage for years by the previous owner due to ill health. It is in a nice McMillan stock and I have ordered the Styria bottom metal for use with AICS mags - this conversion...

    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...

    Hi there, I sent my '05 M40-A1 into Steyr to have them fix the trigger safety not resetting all the time. I also mentioned that I sometimes have brass hit me on top of the head when firing it. They fixed the safety and replaced the extractor and ejector and sent it back to me. They were very...
