  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I've read that the gap between the slide and frame on the new L9A1 series pistols is much more pronounced than previous versions of the gun. I wonder if any of you owners could break out a micrometer and put a number to that? Any info would be appreciated!

    Today I got in the mail my ASG Airsoft Steyr M9 pistol. I have been watching eBay for some time and they came back into stock. So far so good. I have open the box, fondled it a bit, and read the brief instructions. The piece is very well built, steel frame makes it heavier than a real unloaded...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    It has been a while since I last posted and thought I would share my fantastic experience with my new M9-A1. I sold my old M9 to a friend of mine and used the money to finally get the new M9-A1 in March. I purchased it from Trellix Tactical and must say it was a pleasure doing business with...

    Happy Memorial Day! I'm having a dis-assembly problem with my M40 handgun while trying to remove the sub frame from the polymer grip. I can't get the manual safety engagement pin to come out. I've followed the online sub frame removal tutorial to the letter I believe and still can't get it to...

    Hello, I've been reading over the threads on the forum for a few months, looking for information, and decided it's time to register. I acquired an M40-A1 last October, and it has become my favorite polymer frame pistol, beating out pretty much everybody else's offerings. and I can see why it...

    Met the venerable and amiable Jeff Reece at the show, yesterday... he remembered my last name from emails. He is just as friendly and great to be around as he sounds on the phone. I got to check out the L9-A1. The plastic frame is longer and the slide and sub-assemb. won't fit into the older...

    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...

    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...

    Hi, Guys, what would be your suggestions for extending mag release on a M9-A1? When changing a mag, I have to adjust the grip or I am not able to reach the button properly. It was not a problem until I started shooting in IPSC, now I see the need for extending the button. One of the solutions...

    I've never really concerned myself with my M9-A1's history or rather background, I just assumed it was a Steyr like MANY others and that all the #'s matched up (frame, slide and barrel) Well, scrolling thru some old posts I find a reference to "FrankenSteyr" after some research I've learned my...
