    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...

    Happy Memorial Day! I'm having a dis-assembly problem with my M40 handgun while trying to remove the sub frame from the polymer grip. I can't get the manual safety engagement pin to come out. I've followed the online sub frame removal tutorial to the letter I believe and still can't get it to...

    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...

    Just curious I bought a M40 A-1 today at local gunshot. I have owned a M40 for quite a while and noticed the M40 a-1 doesn't have the loaded chamber indicator. The instruction manual indicates it should have one so I am a bit confused. I knew the manual safety was gone and the addition of the...
  5. New Member Check-In
    Hello from Florida, I discovered this site and found it very helpful when I was researching my "new" Steyr M40(original version). The first rifle I got was my grandfather's/mother's 1957 Classic Mannlicher in .243. I fell in love with that gun and became spoiled in a way by...

    Went with the S-40A1 for packing in my purse. We had one of the original M9s back in the day and it is the only gun we regret selling. I go through personal carry firearms like eating potato chips, because I just can't find one I really *like* enough to live with all the time every day. I do...

    I had original M9 and M40 Steyrs when they were first imported, but I didn't like the manual safety at all and finally traded the guns off. The A1's look good to me, so it's time to try them again. I have located a source for the latest imports, slide roll pin, trap sights etc (yay!). But, I...

    Hello all, New to the forums and Steyr pistols. I came across a used Steyr M-A1 357 sig at a pawn shop. Date code of LOF (Feb 2004). It doesn't have A1 on the frame, but does have picatinny rail and no manual safety above the trigger guard. According to Steyr Arms, some of the A1 frames ended up...

    Following the video tutorial on tthe sub frame removal, he shows a safety (?) pin and spring that has to come out. My MA-1 does not have this. The lock pin seems to be hanging onto something and I am afraid to force or pry. Is there some other release spring on this newer model? Excuse the lack...

    Hi guys, I want to buy a new S A-1 in 9mm. I am just a bit confuse because when i search for them i find two different ones (sty 39.322.3 & sty 39.821.2). Is this because of the safety, one with and one without?? For CA owners?? I want the new model with no safety....also is $535 a good...

    I am in the process of doing a trade for an S40. Unfortunately I thought it was a S40-A1. I did a search for a comparison between the 2, but couldnt find anything. What are the differences, good, bad, indifferent? Would I be better off getting an S40-A1? I currently own a M9-A1. Thank You in advance

    Greetings everyone! I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere. I searched but didn't see anything identical. I picked up a used M40 and am very impressed with some things, not so impressed with others. It looks well used, not abused, just used. I've put a couple hundred rounds through it...
  15. Caracal C and F Series
    Troy, Any info on this thing? How does it work? Is it some add-on accessory, or does the pistol need to be special ordered with the device already installed?

    :?: I am a new owner of a Steyr Mannlicher M-9. Bought it new for a about $350. However, i noticed they had a Steyr M9 for $500. I asked what the difference was, and they said both pistols were the same. I wonder, is there a difference between my M-9, and the M9?

    I've done trigger work on 1911s, revolvers and Glocks (a piece of cake). In fact, I can almost take apart 1911s and Glocks in my sleep. Having just bought a Steyr I was unimpressed with the rough trigger. Using the tutorial on this site I decided to take it apart to see if I could polish some...

    Just picked up a new M40 A1 2nite. It's got the manual safety on it. Not used to the setup. Any body know if the manual safety gets in the way, accidentally set off etc? It feels really great. Cleaned it up as best I could with FP-10 and stuffed 20 rounds in the mags to get 'em all worked in...
  20. Carry Issues
    I removed the manual safety and was looking to fill in the area. Has anyone tried it. And what was the process. I was thinking of epoxy.
