    Hi Steyrclub... I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I own a Steyr AUG A3 BullPup which I recently purchased and have not had an opportunity to shoot it yet... however, I am really look forward to the day as it is ready to go and I am very proud of it. Looking forward to sharing...
  2. Holsters
    I think it came out alright, I just need to refine the edges a little but it fits nice. I do have a question though, I need spacers to put between the belt clip and the actual holster itself, I though stacking vinyl washers or kydex strips would look ultra tacky so I am curious what yall use for...
  3. Other Handguns
    Installing the hammer and hammer springs on the Steyr GB can be challenging because each hammer spring must be wound and its fixed (hooked) end inserted into a cavity in the underside of the sear (Figure 1). This can be done using some thin steel wire, a hook tool or dental pick, and a flat...

    I searched "drop free" in this forum but came up craps. Any suggestions on making these mags drop free like my glocks? I had some serious trouble yesterday at our local IDPA match. Had to "rip" the mag out every damm time.

    Howdy! I live in Texas and work in the oil patch. Just ordered myself an S40A1 pistol today. Should have it by the weekend. Look forward to taking it to the range. Take care all!

    As I mentioned elsewhere, because I've moved away from the .40 caliber, I am hoping to trade my M40s for M9s once the classified section is working again. In the meantime, I've sold off a couple of other guns, and so I decided to modernize the Steyr collection: Yesterday I picked up an M9-A1...

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to the gun arena in general. Purchased an S40 late last year and during the most recent cleaning I noticed a small fissure in the multifunctional element. I have disassembled it using the various guides posted on the site and have "reassembled" it with what I...

    Hi! I'm an army veteran from Ontario, Canada, and after a few months of shooting my M40A1, I am now a hopeless Steyr Fanboy. (To the point that I am selling off other guns to save for an SSG69).

    Trellix Tactical out of Plano, TX has L9-A1's in stock. Spoke to Phil, very amiable guy. Price is definitely good to go. Just a heads up for any of you who would rather deal with a human than Gunbroker. :salute:

    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...
  12. Other Rifles
    Anyone have a source for adjusting the trigger on the SSG? Both my 04 and my 08 have 3 screws and manual doesn't help any. I searched forum, google and YouTube. I played around blindly with my 04 many years ago, and managed to somewhat get it to my liking. Unfortunately I don't remember which...

    New M9 owner here checking in. I got my Frankensteyr in a trade. Wasn't what I was looking for, but I'm happy the opportunity arose. Looking forward to some range time to see how much I like the sights. I'm an M&P owner, so the grip and mag catch are taking some getting used to, but nothing a...

    Very happy that I was finally able to pick up a Kahles ZF84 scope for my SSG69, looking forward to getting it out to the range. Don

    Does this seem normal to you guys? This is a loaded gun with only a slight amount of pressure put on the front of the slide. It will hold back and stay held back. This gun was mfg. November of 2012. The trigger is also 7lb 11oz average by my lyman digital scale. What's up with this thing?

    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...

    Hello everyone. I am new to the M series of pistols and looking forward to learning about my new carry guns. I have owned Glocks, Rugers, XD's, and Sig in semi autos. I happened across a used Steyr and had to give it a go. I currently have a M9, M9-A1, and a M40-A1. This Sunday I am trading...

    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 am glad :) to find a steyrclub on the web. In our tiny country Holland i could not find any. i'd love to exchange knowledge about steyr rifles and reloading ammunition for this rifle, but i am also curious about steyr handguns so hopefully there is a lot to share...

    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...
