    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...

    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...

    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...

    I recently acquired a new S9-A1 which was manufactured in 09/2012. The firing pin spring was coated with some sort of red lubricant paste. Does anyone know exactly what it is? FWIW, I put it's first 200 rounds (Federal 115 grain FMJ RN) through it last week. With the exception of shooting a bit...

    Howdy all, I am looking for a firing pin assembly (single parts are welcome anyway) for my SSG PIV rifle. Can anybody help find it? Any info is much appreciated. Thanks much

    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...

    I have a 1912 without firing pin or spring. Otherwise in good condition. I keep getting sent to the same sources and they are sold out. Any ideas or contacts would be great. If I can get hold of one or a good blueprint, I can have one made. Thanks

    Hello all, I have recently picked up a new (well new to me) Pro Hunter in 376 Steyr. I have a couple questions if anyone can help me out. First, I've ordered the updated bolt cam and sent it to John on here to switch out and polish. I'm also having him do the bolt knob conversion to the...

    Hi! Today at the end of my training M9-A1 refused to reset. After I came home, I noticed that catch (nr 10 on parts diagram) would not come up to catch the firing pin. When I fully disassembled the frame, I have noticed that one of the tails of catch spring (part number 12) was broken. In total...

    I am going to be putting my GB on Gunbroker. My hands are just a little bit too small for it, but it is a sweet gun. No box, but I have three mags. In the meantime, I have a few spare parts: Qty: 1 Firing Pin Qty: 1 Firing Pin Return Spring Qty: 1 Decocker Spring Qty: 1 Trigger Spring...

    Need guidance on cleaning the firing pin channel. Hi All, Can someone direct me in the right direction on how to clean (disassembly and reassembly) the firing pin channel for the M9A1? I figure it's time for a thorough cleaning. Thanks.... Jubal

    Look what I found while performing maintenance on the slide, I hope I can get it replaced.

    Use only non-linting materials to clean the striker or firing pin channel in actually any weapon. Lint can cause light strikes by itself, and with dirt, it can really muck things up. Coffee filters or Chem-X filters are non-woven materials which will clean well and not leave fibers behind. Cut...

    Got a couple of hundred rounds downrange w/ a new c9a1. Seems like a well made gun. Unfortunately I've had a small problem w/ light firing pin strikes. I'm hoping this might be a break in issue as I had 5-6 light strikes the first 100 rounds or so but only one today. I'm using reloads w/ S+b...

    I bought an S40 yesterday and like my brand new S9 it is having the battery click issues. I saw someone had posted the video of polishing up the firing pin where it rolls over the roll pin, to a point I do believe that this has SOME to do with the issue. I believe the REAL issue is the firing...

    Hey Guys, Well this is the first problem I have had with any of my Steyrs. I just bought an S9-A1 and took it to the range. It is shooting great but I have a rather strange problem. I had noticed it before I went to the range but thought maybe a few hundred rounds would sort it out but sadly...

    Hi, I am having a problem with my 2002 S40. AfterI fire a live round, it seems not to go into full battery lock-up, the firing pin makes contact with the primer but not with enough force to fire the second round. If I tap the rear of the slide it then fires fine. Can anyone please tell me what...

    I'll get some video up on this as well. I'll have to get the lighting setup just right with the camera to pick up the black. So, what we've talked about in a few threads here is when you rack the gun to make it live, set the striker/trigger, there is a slight wobble you can have front and back...

    So, I picked up a Steyr C9-A1 as my first real quality pistol, and after some initial issues, I'm very happy with it. The first time I took it out, I got very concerned with issues returning to battery - the slide would be just a WEE bit too far back, and I'd get a horrendous 12-15lb trigger...
