    Proud owner of a brand new SA1 .40 How often should I clean this weapon ? The Manual recommendation is after every use. I cleaned it out of the box. Put 50 rounds down range with no problems. Went home and cleaned it last night. It seemed very dirty -took many patches etc.. Perhaps the FMJ 180...

    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!

    Hello everyone recently I was able to purchase a perfect example of a Zephyr with set triggers. This has been a 20 year search for me. Now the down side unfortunately the magazine is missing. Are there any sources for these magazines, original or aftermarket? I contacted Steyr directly and they...

    Does anyone have any idea how to remove the Parker Hale bipod spigot from an SSG-08? The original Parker Hale is way too heavy and unstable. The Versapod knock offs are cheaply made. It seems like it should be removable with tools. I would rather do that, than hacking off the spigot. Any help...

    Does anyone know where I can find these near Seattle? I know I can buy online but I was hoping to get some this week before the weekend match. Thanks!

    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...

    Like the title of the thread says, I've got a blind date with a March 2013 production Steyr M40-A1. I have never even so much as held one, but that didn't keep me from ordering one today. I'm super excited and I'm anxious to get to know this pistol. One area that I seek knowledge in is...

Anyway just a heads up guys, I was able to purchase a March 2013 (make date) M40-A1 from Trellix Tactical, Plano Texas, I think they still have 8 in stock for those of our brother's interested. They have it in auction in GB at a buy now price of 509. I...

    I have already submitted ads for 2 handguns (Glock 27 and Springfield 1911) in a local classified publication. When you guys sell, do you meet at a neutral location or do you have them come to your house? Also, on bills of sale, do you include your name and address? If you haven't already...

    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...

    Hi All I found the site whilst looking up information on the .308 Scout, enjoyed what I read and thought joining and hopefully contributing would be a good idea. I have owned a Scout in 5.56mm, a superb fox rifle, I have owned an SSG P2 in .243 for 4 years and had the barrel shortend to 17...

    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...
  15. Anything Else
    ...and thinking of listening to my inner Scottish heritage voice. Found this and think my Steyr M9 would look awfully nice in it (as well as my legs)! Comes with a custom holster for your firearm. http://www.etsy.com/listing/80167563/trinity-tactical-kilt-shown-in-black?ref=shop_home_feat

    I have an M40-A, it is heavily scaring the brass, anyone know why? Is this a problem? Or normal? Never seen it before. Help please!!
  17. Other Handguns
    Okay, so in the thread below, I have chronicled my S&W PPK. Now on to the other PPK (I have two). Will try to make a long story short. Got it at a pawnshop as it was advertised as a Pre-War. I memorized the serial number, went home and confirmed it was made in 1935. No problems there. Only...

    Gentlefolk; I fell in love with the Steyr GB donkey's years ago, and it remains my favorite 9mm, if it were not so hard to clean because of the ported barrel. That nit aside, I was at my LGS the other day, in line waiting for the range line to get me to the checkin, so I looked over the used...
