    Hello, dear friends I am interested to know - should the disassemble lever snap into its former place automatically when I set the slide after disassembling? Ealier it snaped into its place automatically, but after I completely disassembled my Steyr M-A1 the level does not want to and I have to...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    I have a M40-A1, I've put maybe a couple hundred rounds through it. I've only ever done the basic field strip as shown in the owner's manual. Right now I'm deployed to Afghanistan and they wouldn't let me take any of my own, nice guns. I have to make do with a beat up M16. But, when I get...

    I own a June 02'M9 and an April 08' M40-A1,and there doesn't seem to be any issues with extraction or feeding. Through scouring the threads here,and reading some of the issues that members have been having,I'm wondering if the Canadian versions are experiencing the same issues. Because of...

I have the M9 slide with the old extractor, the new frame with the rail. Serial number is in the 040 range, so are this refurbs? The frame has...

    Gentlemen. I am new to Steyr ownership and so far my enthusiasm was kind of held back by some annoying trigger issues. My gun is a low round count M9-A1 that I just purchased used last weekend. I stripped Ms. Steyr's frame down to every pin, cleaned it, reassembled it and mounted it to the...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    First post here, just joined a few minutes ago. I have a dilemma, I am not sure if I should go with an M9A1 or a Caracal F. Either way I want a full sized gun. I have never fired either but i have dry fired both and love the triggers. I was going for the Caracal and then I think I discovered...
  9. New Member Check-In
    Ladies and Gentlemen, as of yesterday I am the proud owner of a M9 - A1 (i think). Bought the gun used, but according to the owner it has only been fired 100 times. The condition of the gun supports said claim, as the finish is immaculate and there is 0 wear on all 3 mags. Took it to the range...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello everyone,first post here. I am hoping some of you here can offer some suggestions. I stopped by Cabela's tonight and took a look at the S-A1. To make a long story short, they fit me like a glove. I was able to put both a 9mm and 40 cal on hold for 5 days while I decide what to do. I...

    Hi Steyr community, Since the present "gun law panic" I decided to look around and maybe get a new gun. While I was shopping several places, I found a Steyr MA1 at Cabela's. Being from Europe, I am familiar with Steyr. After a little research I found the info available confusing. Now I am...

    Looks like my new S40 is hit with the trigger reset bug. Have checked out Big Taco's trigger reset tutorial. However, before I continue, let me run my scenario out to the club. Picked it up Friday as it came in that day. So once I got to the FFL/range, I took it like a little kid at...

  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Greetings. Somewhat torn between the M40A1 and the S40A1. Here's my question. I have "normal" sized hands - will the grip length of the S40 be long enough so my pinkie finger is not dangling in space? Have never seen a Steyr "live" at shops/shows around here, so will be purchasing online...
  16. Caracal C and F Series
    I always did want to have a Glock, but without the price tag attached to it in our part of the woods ($3500 or above!). I did strictly consider getting a Steyr M9A1 (3rd Gen, before the roller based striker pin!), but that too at $2500 was still pretty steep. Then came news of Caracal, and its...

    Project SP-TS Shadow with Range Report Didn't I mention somewhere abount being busy? TARGET: The below picture is not of my weapon (yet). This is something that has been on my mind for quite a while. Finally, gathered the courage to go for it. I did arrange an analog Mitutoyo vernier, to...

    Hello, dear friends I am a newbie on this forum. I have got a Steyr M A1. I like it very much, but have some questions about the maintenance. For example, now I have got to replace the ejector on the sub-frame but don't know what to do exactly (there is no tutorials for it, I mean for the...

    I just picked up a steyr 9mm used from a local pawn shop. Gun feels great and if it wasn't pouring outside i would be shooting it to try it out. While i was admiring my new steyr i noticed that my slide Only has Steyr M9 on it not the M9-A1. I has the new lower frame and all the serial...
