  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello all!! I am a new proud owner of s Steyer S40 A1 and I have to say that I am very impressed with the gun. I took possession of it this past wed and took it to the range today. Put 200 rounds of that white box winchester 100 rnd box without ANY issues at all. It is the most accurate gun I've...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I re-shot my A1 series video dealing with the myth on the lockup. Stay tuned as it uploads. I will reiterate my findings in text format in here as well again.

    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...

    Hey all! I'm relatively new to the Club here, been stalking a while. I picked up an S40-A1 back in February and have put 170 rounds down range. The guns a beauty, I really like it, but I'm having trouble with the TriTrap sights. As my name implies, I'm a Walther fan and absolutely love my...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I had something odd happen today when I went to the firing range. It wasn't something I expected, I had inserted the magazine into my M9A1 (15 round magazine), pulled the slide back, let go, and the slide only moved partially and stopped. I checked to make sure there was no round in the chamber...
