  1. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...
  2. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I just finished up doing a little work on my M9-A1, trying to deal with the slide clicking, out of battery issue, and found something interesting. I also have issue with rapping, not slamming, or hitting hard, the mag base plate when the pistol is cocked, and the slide backs out of battery. I...

    Hi all, After being shot briefly yesterday by my Pastor (who loved the gun, by the way), my S40-A1 has started to make a strange rattling noise when I tilt the gun up or down. It also feels as if something is sliding around in the slide. I immediately unloaded the gun and took it apart to...

    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...

    Just picked up my M9A1 today and have some questions. 1. When I release the mag catch lever the slide comes forward and hits the mag, becoming stuck. When I hit mag lever down with some force(like some people do to load their pistols) the slide did finally go forward, but this isn't something I...

    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...

    Just little minor tweaks this afternoon as I've done all the reliability work and all the BT mods. I filed down the slide stop so it wouldn't be in the way of my grip, and I grip taped my contact points for better traction. Enjoy. http://imgur.com/a/mmS5A#0

    First off, thanks to ThorInc for inspiring me to finally... bite the bullet? Drop the hammer? Or some other appropriate saying meaning "to stop being a wuss and just buy a damn Steyr." :) I'd been following the M9 for many moons and decided that when I finally got my firearms license, it was...

    After several years of wanting one, I purchased a new M9-A1 on Thursday. I have been intrigued by them after seeing them in CDNN several years ago. Three times I stumbled onto them at gun shows and pawn shops, but, never made the purchase. I was in the market for a new 9mm and had been tossing...

    I recently picked up a used m40-a1 off gbroker. During my first trip to the range I had multiple issues, but we'll see if the new parts fix it. My current question: With a full 12rd magazine, it is difficult to rack the first round. I read a similar thread, and it ended with the gun needing...

    Howdy All :) I don't know if there is any interest on the forum for this conversion, but I have converted 2 S&W Sigma 40 15-round hicaps to 15-round hicaps for my M357A-1. The Sigma mags actually load much easier and there is no problem feeding or dropping free. It should be an easy...

    I don't know if anyone recalls, but I've had many problems with my almost-brand-new M9A1 slide not locking back after the last shot. The general consensus on this board was that I had a magazine problem. So I ordered two new magazines from onpoint and received them today, and this is what I...

    After reading about the new 15 round Steyr M9A1 magazines from stevehf48's M9A1 review, I tried to find some on-line but didn't have any luck. So all you lucky 15 round mag owners, please help me out. First let me know where you got them. Second, if you have a digital camera, please take...

    Hello Folks, After alot of research and deliberation over what's currently offered in todays handgun market, I picked up on an M9 a couple of weeks ago as my first pistol puchase in about fifteen years or so. Initially I was looking at a...

    Just brought my M9 home and I'm very impressed with it. I've had Glocks before and (as you all know) this is a much more substantial and much better made weapon. Looking forward to getting it to the range and seeing what it can do. I've discovered that my 14 round mags actually hold 15...

    Upon inspecting and cleaning my brand new S9 tonight I noticed that the barrel had debris in it. The type of fouling you'd usually see after a trip to the range. Though I don't see any other wear marks on the slide The barrel appeared fired. Also the breach face looked to have carbon deposits on...
