  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi guys. It finally happened: the dreaded BROKEN STRIKER! Why the hell does it happen? Metal Fatigue? Manufacturing defect? :wall: And yes, I use snapcaps. To make it worse. Our country was embargoed by the Austrian Government in terms of firearms export, thus makin it difficult to get parts...
  2. Ammunition and Reloading
    I have just bought an SSG 69 II Police and am trying to pick peoples brains as to waht load they have used successfully for range shooting up to 600yds. Have already started my own reloads and just have been using 168 gn Sierra match heads with 42 grains of Vihtavouri 530. A colleague on the...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    Does anyone have experience with BVAC ammo? Found some at a gun show this weekend and bought some. I will let everyone know how it shoots in my S-40. Thanks Jayson

  5. Other Handguns
    Well, seems I need to find myself something that fires 7.62x25mm ammunition.... After reading this, I find myself intrigued by this pistol cartridge... Anyone have any favorites or suggestions??? Anyone? Anyone? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
  6. Carry Issues
    I want to get a Keltec for ultra-concealment situations. I've had an equal number tell me that ballistically the .380 version is superior to the .32 ACP version and vice-versa. They are the same size and price so what do you all think? Please also recommend a load for your caliber preference...
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    I like to shoot the WWB .40 180 gr JHPs at pigs, but i have noticed that the hollow point is very inconsistant. What I mean is that the 'hollowed out' portion is different from bullet to bullet. Has anyone ever tried to carefully widen some of the narrower hollow points found in common...
  8. Ammunition and Reloading
    Anyone care to share their experience with this load out of an M40. Any feed, eject, recoil comments? -Longshot
  9. Ammunition and Reloading
    Would you compare the speer gold dot to federal hydroshock hollowpoints 124 grain ...????? Is the Gold dot better ammo for self defense in S9
  10. Ammunition and Reloading
    What is the best home defense round. I have experienced problems with the 147 grain hollow points .....so now i am thinking to swithc to a smaller grain , i just want somebody elses opinion so it does not ccst me hundreds of $$$ to shoot those expensive rounds till i find out which one is...
  11. Ammunition and Reloading
    Well, CDNN has only 12 more of our lovelys left.......and I couldn't let them all go without have JUST one more :wink: ........so yep, got another....lets see: that's 7 dozen Nike gold golf balls, Panasonic drill, CSCS certification class (needed that :!: ), new dvd/vcr recorder, four months...
  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    I know this topic has been discussed to death at various other forums, but I'm looking for M9 specific thoughts/experiences. I've pretty much got it narrowed down to Gold Dots in either 124 gr +p or 147 gr standard pressure, but can be swayed to other brands/loads if the evidence is convincing...
  13. Ammunition and Reloading
    One thing that I observed when using soft leaded ammo is that my groupings was just bad.... very bad! ... that was due to the inner barrel getting so much builtup of lead. Anyhow, I keep in using them to practice double taps... and not for accuracy. Once I am comfortable with DTs, then will...
  14. Anything Else
    Anybody have experience with the Kahr PM9 ? Will it really work for pocket carry? How about recoil ? Any reliability issues, or other quality concerns (I would hope not, at the prices they ask).
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey I do not know much about guns and i have a question about what is the difference in grain size in ammunition. All that i have been buying sense i got my S9 is 115 grain 9mm Para. I was wondering what difference does it make if i use 124 or larger grains size?? Is it hard on the gun using the...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey guys, I've been lurking for awhile and have learned a lot here! I just purchased my first Steyr last week and went to the range today. It's an M9 and I do like it. I put 130 rounds through it and not a single FTE, FTF and no brass in the face! I shot 115gr WWB as usual at the range and it is...
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    I realize I did this backwards; I ordered some from CDNN and now I'm asking how it works! Does anyone have any experience with this ammo? I'm interested mainly in feed reliability and muzzle flash. I ordered it because I assume (and yes, I know that's an acronym :)) the muzzle flash will be...
  18. Ammunition and Reloading
    has anyone tried this??? I want to know if it feeds properly before i buy 1000. 9mm thanks
  19. Ammunition and Reloading
    I've probably just barely put 500 rounds through my M9A1, but last time I shot her at the range I tested a box of the much hailed CorBon 115gr. +P's through her, and about every other one failed to eject. In fact, it happened to a lot of the +P's I shot that day (i had best luck with Proload...
  20. Ammunition and Reloading
    Hello! I am new to handguns, new to Steyr, and new to Steyr Club, and I've been reading and trying to get up to speed. After reading TFL and THR recommendations, I bought an M9 from CDNN as my first handgun for self/home defense and, well, just for fun (I needed a new hobby). I've put 50...
