  1. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hello all, I’ve been lurking around for a while and have seen several variations of what I’m about to ask but with no concrete answers. I have a Steyr C9-A1 that’s marked Trussville, AL. This gun started out alright but soon began to eject erratically. After about 50 rounds it absolutely locked...
  2. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    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...

    Is this normal? Before I stir up a storm with the on-line guy from whence this gun came, I thought I'd ask you guys I just received, today, my "new" M9-A1 Steyr pistol NIB, still had factory grease on rails, etc. but . . unlike any other pistol I've ever purchased (and I have Glocks...
  4. 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...

    What would you like to tell them about the A1 pistols that you don't like? For me it would have to be the ability of the gun's slide to be pushed slightly back when cocked. By the way, have new production guns been cured of this ill? I know there's a fix here for it but I am wondering if Steyr...

    So I shot my Steyr M40 A1 for the second time today. I have shelved it and the rest of my guns because of the Ammo debacle! Anyhow I finished up teaching my NRA course and shot only about 15 rounds through it...Man I am sold!!! The gun is so under rated!!! I love the sights to. Really easy...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    So here I am on the range today... After some training, I proudly produce my brand new M9-A1 and hand it to my partner (Former Marine sniper, firearms expert extraordinaire). He smugly grips the pistol, a slight smile was detected on his face as I watched him enjoy the ergonomics and feel of...
  8. Holsters
    Greetings: Since Steyr holsters seem to be a rare item, I have created this post. I will add holster manufacturers that claim to make holsters specifically for Steyr pistols. Please note that I am just listing what they claim on their websites. Companies with an (?), do not list specific...
  9. Other Rifles
    Hello: New member here, I have a prohunter in .260rem that a pervious owner tried to make into a 'brush gun'. It looks like they cut the barrel with a hacksaw, recrowned it with a dremel, and, just for giggles, bored out the rifling with a drill bit. The barrel is ~17.5" from the locked bolt...
  10. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I bought a drill press awhile back and I've been having fun drilling anything that looks drillable. The biggest hassle has been getting the work jigged at the right spot. How I wished the DP had a laser light... Duh, mad scramble for the night stand, where did I stick it, voila! It didn't work...
  11. Anything Else
    Just wondering what way people store their firearms, if they dry fire them before putting into their gun safe(if they don't have exposed hammer), use snap caps or leave them cocked? For most firearms here in the UK this isn't such an issue as rifles are supposed to have bolt removed and stored...

    http://www.itstactical.com/intellicom/physical-security/flying-with-a-firearm-and-airline-travel-tips-by-deviant-ollam/ Great video! Lots of great tips. I was always told that if you check in with firearms, your bags are less likely to get lost.

    Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm looking at the S9-A1 to replace my PF9. On the PF9 the slide stop is a stop only and can not be used to release the slide once a new mag is inserted. Does the slide stop on the S9-A1 operate as a release or does it work like the PF9?
  14. New Member Check-In
    Hello everyone. New Steyr M9 owner. Recently purchased at Cabela's and had been eyeing this pistol for some time. Just happened to come on sale. Unfortunately I learned that it seems to have a problem with some ammo. Had a misfire and slide was locked shut. Took into gunsmith to have them...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    I finally got to go to the range and shoot my new M9A1. It did not go as well as I had hoped. The gun started out great. I was dead on accurate with the gun. The Trap sights are really really great. People were coming over to look at the gun and its sights. My 1st group was three inches...

    Barska biometric safe - instructions on how to disable the beep I own the Barska biometric safe and like most people I don't like the loud 'unstealthy' beep it gives out when opening it, so I disabled it. It voids the warranty so you're doing this at your own risk, but with a soldering iron it...

    I have an older M9-A1, and I love it. I am in the market for a compact / subcompact model, and noticed that Steyr are now being re-imported. Gunbroker seems rife with Steyrs now! Are the issues with the S series ironed out?
