    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:

    On an older S9 9mm can the current 17 round M9A1 mags be used in it?

    A buddy and I stopped in to SharpMart on Preston Highway in Louisville, KY to pick up some mag pouches, they had a M9-A1 in the case there. I couldn't tell if it was new or used but it looked new. Sticker price was $560.99 I do not know if SharpMart will ship (probably not), so you'll probably...

    I have a Fobus holster for a Sig 229 that fits my M9 like a glove, can I assume that leather holsters for a Sig 229 will also fit my Steyr.

    Hey all, current handgun noob looking to find his perfect pistol :-) So far Ive had a S&W SD9VE and currently have a Glock 22. Neither have really tickled my fancy so I come here to learn more about Steyr Arms and possibly get my hands on a M40/M357. Hope to get to know some of you and learn a...

    Gentlefolk; I fell in love with the Steyr GB donkey's years ago, and it remains my favorite 9mm, if it were not so hard to clean because of the ported barrel. That nit aside, I was at my LGS the other day, in line waiting for the range line to get me to the checkin, so I looked over the used...

    So I was fondling an S9-A1 at Cabela's today and really liked the pistol. The only problem I had was that it had "gimped" 10rnd magazines, like the ones they make for restricted states. When I asked the salesman about it he said it was standard. What's the deal with this? I live in a state with...

    I recently read a post here that claimed the Fobus Paddle #SG229 will work for a M40-A1. Can anyone else confirm this? (Its made for a SIG P229). Or perhaps any other "reasonably priced" Kydex/Polymer Holster? Thanks in advance! Cheers

    I recently purchased a new model M9-A1 and was curious to see if there were any significant changes made from the previous models. I previously owned an older steyr that was just badged as an M9 with no further designations. Keep in mind I had no issues with the previous pistol and was actually...

    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...

    Why Did it Have to be ... Guns? by L. Neil Smith [email protected] Over the past 30 years, I've been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I've thought about the issue a lot, and it...

    my very first handgun...Steyr m40a1
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    I bought and love my M9-A1 about 2 months ago. I wanted a M40-A1 and feel like I settled for the M9. Now I'm having the worst time trying to just find 9mm ammo. So I'm looking to sell my M9-A1 and get an M40-A1 but I still can't seem to find any. Anyone know of an online shop that stocks these?

    Here are some pics of the 1 I made. I just want to get a feel for if the investment is worth it and if I would have any clientele.

    I will be honest I was concerned about getting another 40 S&W after my Glock but someone local had an S40 for sale at a great price and I decided to jump on it. The trip to the range I kept going over about how my Glock felt with the 40 and was wondering even before I shot it if I had made a...

    Sorry for the ignorant post, but we recently purchased a C9-A1 and I'm looking to get a few more 15 rd magazines. I found some advertised that were 15 rd but specifically for the M. Can I purchase these and expect them to fit on our C? Thanks...and if anybody has any tips for purchasing extra...

    Just got a C9-A1. Decided it was time for a 9mm. Tried range rentals for XD, and Sig 226 and 229. Son has a Glock. Decided on the Steyr. This fit great. Like the strange sights. They work well with older eyes. Not new to shooting or handguns, but new to Steyr. Unfortunately, the trigger...

    Glad to have found this forum. I'll be honest, 3 days ago I didn't even know what a "Steyr" was. I did of course know of the AUG. Anyways, yesterday I found myself in a local gun shop, I was holding a few sigs, S&W, etc...when the guy handed me an M9-A1. I was amazed and how it felt like it was...

    Been trying to find a Gen 1 M9 owners manual...not having much luck. Theres a couple of them on Gunbroker, but the sellers won't ship to Canada(apparently its a foreign Country...who knew) They're asking $25 on Gunbroker, so I'd be willing to pay at least that if someone has an extra.
