My name is Tasos and I leave in Athens, Hellas.
Before few days I get a STEYR M9-A1 with day of manufacture GWK (July '12) and 17 round magazines.
I request you forgive me for the way of writing.
I get this arm with special authorization self defense because in my country are...
I've got a few questions about Steyr rifles:
1. What is the practical difference between SSG 04 and 04 A1 models? I understand that it is a chassis, and that one can mount some extra stuff on it, and that it looks cool :-) but any other tangible difference than that? Accuracy...
Fired my new c9 for the first time yesterday. It did every bit as well as my M&P. Wasn't sure I was going to like the trap sights but I think I do; they were very fast and I think I'll be able to do even better once I get used to them. My only complaint is that the mag doesn't drop free very...
Hello. My name is Andrew and I live in Levittown Pennsylvania.
I just purchased a used M9A1 from Gunbroker. Apparently it had extractor issues so the PO sent it to Steyr and they installed a 1911 spring to fix the problem.
Anyway, I picked it up at my FFL on Monday, and shot it later that...
A can of spray-on Fluid Film Lubricant was sent to me via a member on this forum, for testing on the Steyr M9/M9-A1.
First impressions are:
1. Smells like food!
2. Pretty lubricious
I applied it to the pistol, and fired a few hundred rounds.
The pistol functioned fine, it still smelled like...
First of all... I will give this gun another go-round to confirm my findings.
Here are my first impressions: Generally, a great handgun.
Very accurate, I shot it off a support. Great results.
So far..I hate the sights.
Easy to maintain
Well built it seems
Grip surfaces seem...
C9-A1 - first impressions *** 2.23.12 UPDATE ***
Well, I'll start with the positives (as compared to my 1st generation M40)!
LOVE the new grip! My hands sit higher (more on top of the gun) and I like the slightly more aggressive cut in at the top). The texture as well! Basically a great...
...just got back from the range.
My GF bought me an HK USPc .357SIG for my b-day, and I just had to go put some lead through it.
Naturally, the HK was perfection, as all my HK's are.
I noticed on the way out, last time I was here shooting, a Caracal F behind the glass, in the For Rent...
This is my first post here, and I am also a new Caracal owner.
During a recent family discussion, it was discovered that my father is very good friends with the owner of Waffen Werks, located in Knoxville, TN.
My dad and I had the good fortune to to visit Waffen Werks this...

anyone have any expirience on these yet? looks like a P99 got it on with an HK P30.....i guess if one looks past the HK-esque furniture/ergonomics, the trigger reset is the main selling point....looks to get off real quick, accurate follow up shots from the few youtube videos ive seen.....
First, I'm not a holster expert. But many of you will want to know about this one.
I picked up a new IWB holster, have not seen it discussed here. It is a slightly different design, at least to me. A leather backpiece and kydex front piece. It has a moderate amount of "Tek-Lok"-style...
Let me start out by saying this...
Now I know why the 1911 design has not only survived, but thrived for nearly one-hundred years.
Last thursday I took my Steyr S40, S9, and the Dan Wesson with 100 rds of 9mm, 100 rds of .40cal, and 200 rds of .45cal WWB to the range. I started...
I ordered a Dan Wesson Panther Pointman Series from CDNN last week and picked it up today.
- Pistol $479
- Extra 8rd Mag $9
- Ultra thin Coco Bolo checkered grips $30
- Shipping $12
- FFL Fees$27
- Total $557
Seems like a pretty good deal for a well made 1911.
The gun is pretty tight with no...
Well, I just got back from the range after shooting my brand new M9 and all I can say is OH YEAH! This is one nice shooting gun. I fired 250 rds of Blazer and Magtech with no malfunctions of any kind. The sights took a little bit to get used to, but it is hitting right on the money. I fired at...
I got my new M9 in today from CDNN and it looks good. I have never shot one before, but for the price I decided I needed one for my collection. Thanks to the excellent tutorials on this site, I had no problems at all removing the ejector and action carrier. Every thing was dry and in need of...
I was perusing the Web for deals on practice ammo, looking for that elusive blend of low price, accuracy, reliability, and clean-burning powder (hey, ya gotta aim high...except at the range, that is...).
I found what appears to be a good deal on cases of 124 gr 9mm FMJ ball ammo from Magtech...
