  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I purchased a pre-owned M40-A1. The first 2 mags I went through were a nightmare. After the pistol fired, the trigger would not be able to be pulled again to fire another round. I would pull the trigger and there was no click. I would then have to slightly pull back on the slide and release in...

    As the title states, I put about 300 rounds through the new gen M9A1 and the casings eject directly to the face. This doesn't happen every shot but maybe 3 out of 10 and certainly is ammo related. Was curious if any of the owners of the new gen m9a1 has had this issue? Thanks.
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    ive been wearing my M and MA1's here in florida for years. For the first time i noticed that the sweat had gotten into my mag release and caused issues with rust and malfunctions of the release. I am left side carry, so the right side of the pistol was against my body. In particular it was the...

    Hi fellow Steyr fans and owners. I am in Toronto and have just placed a deposit on my first Steyr, an L9-A1. As the guns in Canada at least have dot sights and not the trap sights, I am wondering if anyone knows of night sights that are designed specifically for this model? If I could speak...

    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...

    Hello Steyr Club, I have a latest generation Steyr M9-A1 that I bought brand new. I have always thought it was particularly hard to rack/chamber/cock, etc. My friend has an identical steyr and when handling his I did notice that in comparison his was a lot easier to rack the slide back. I...

    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...

    I have a quick question.. I recently bought a 2011 M9-A1 to replace my M40-A1 (not a fan of the recoil of the m40-a1). When I was cleaning it for the first time (I always clean and oil a gun before I shoot it for the first time) I noticed that when I took out the extractor and the extractor...
  10. Other Rifles
    Hello all, I'm a newbie to the club, and I did a forum search on this issue but I had no luck there... Does anyone know where I can find a 30-60MOA slanted picatiny rail to put on top of my HS-50? I understand that the newer HS-50's have a 20MOA slanted base on them. In fact, I may be the...
  11. New Member Check-In
    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...
  12. Other Handguns
    Today I was able to take my Taurus TCP out for a spin, and I must say she handles like a dream. Between me, my wife, and a friend of mine, the little TCP shot 80 rounds of cheap Russian ammo ($8 for a box of 50), and 50 American Eagle (or some such) flawlessly! I had no failures to feed or to...

    Does this seem normal to you guys? This is a loaded gun with only a slight amount of pressure put on the front of the slide. It will hold back and stay held back. This gun was mfg. November of 2012. The trigger is also 7lb 11oz average by my lyman digital scale. What's up with this thing?

    I just finished up doing a little work on my M9-A1, trying to deal with the slide clicking, out of battery issue, and found something interesting. I also have issue with rapping, not slamming, or hitting hard, the mag base plate when the pistol is cocked, and the slide backs out of battery. I...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey there, I am new to handguns in general, and just purchased a Steyr M40-A1. I love the way this gun feels and shoots, but noticed primer swipes that have me a little concerned. From researching it seems others have primer swipe marks with this gun as well, but when the swipe extends all the...

    Alright so I just picked up a new M9-A1 date of manufacture was March 2013 and it is an SAI import not a frakenstyer from what I can tell. I had an early s40 ages ago and loved it but sold it to pay for school I have now replaced it with this new m9-a1. I am curious as I am having dreaded...

    This past Monday my wife and I went to the range and shot her C9-A1 and my M9-A1. My M9 was consistently low with "groupings" at about 15 yards and at 10 yards as well. I shot her C9 and it was dead on accurate, comparatively so. Yes, I know how to use the sights and am wondering if...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...

    Well, finally got my M9-A1 out for a spin. It ran thru 50 eounds of PMC FMJ without issue. Rested on my range bag, yhe piece is wonderfully consistant. Even in my very imperfect hands the M9 is dropping rounds where I want them. It is unfortunate more people don't know about Steyr, then again...
