  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Does anyone know what accessories for a Glock can fit nicely on the Steyr M series?
  2. The Pub
    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...
  3. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I bought an S40 yesterday and like my brand new S9 it is having the battery click issues. I saw someone had posted the video of polishing up the firing pin where it rolls over the roll pin, to a point I do believe that this has SOME to do with the issue. I believe the REAL issue is the firing...
  4. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I just purchased a used model L in generally great condition BUT ONE BIG PROBLEM. THE SAFETY IS SO STIFF IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO OPERATE. The safety will go to OFF quite well and it will move with hard but tolerable force when the bolt is out, but with the bolt in the button will only go to...

    Hello, guys I am interested to know - there is the so called Threaded Barrel 9x19, 115mm, (4-1/2") for Steyr M A1 pistol. As we know it is aprox. 1/2" longer than a factory barrel. So, if we replace the factory barrel the shot from the Threaded Barrel must be more powerful. Thereby what is the...
  6. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hello, dear friends I am a newbie on this forum. I have got a Steyr M A1. I like it very much, but have some questions about the maintenance. For example, now I have got to replace the ejector on the sub-frame but don't know what to do exactly (there is no tutorials for it, I mean for the...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    S model with C model innards and reliability? I've been doing a lot of handgun shooting lately, and the handgun that has stood out the most in terms of shootability is the Steyr M, S, and C series. Simply put, they excel in all categories except out of the box reliability in the case of the M...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    I was cleaning my M9-A1 and had the slide off the frame. I dropped the frame on the floor, a 1 foot drop on the tile, not very hard, the frame landed on its side. I felt the trigger and thought it felt heavier than normal. I then pressed the trigger multiple times and thought it felt fine. I...
  9. Carry Issues
    Just a heads up folks. NYC has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and if you ever do decide to travel here, leave your gun at home. Very recently two otherwise law abiding citizens have been arrested while visiting the 9/11 memorial and the Empire State Building. They saw posted...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Just bought a new Steyr M-A1 9mm pistol, can't shoot it as am leaving state today for 2 weeks but will spend some time w/it when back. I noticed a good amount of space between the slide and polymer body when viewing from the side, which I can change by pinching top to bottom, the slide and body...
  11. Caracal C and F Series
    This has been a project I have been putting off for some time. If you have been following this pistol, you know it has fewer parts than our beloved Steyrs or even Glocks; I have seen the Caracal schematic that came with my gun, but nothing really puts things into perspective quite like tearing...

    Hi M9 owners and shooters! I got my first M9-A1 two months ago. I've put through about 200 rounds down the barrel to date and haven't had any issues with it. :thumbsup: With that said, I'm really loving the pistol. Fits well and feels comfortable in my hand, love the trapezoid sights- pretty...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    What happened to the thread?? I found a thread on Sticky Triggers, but after some problems with my registration IT"S GONE???? Hi, New here. On the subject of the "Sticky Trigger" Are you experiencing a slide lock-up with this? I took my newly acquired S-40 out yesterday and it jammed twice. The...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    Just home from purchasing my new M9 from a local shop. It has the newer trigger and extra safety in the tirgger guard. Only one mag even though the case has cut outs for 2. I think the dealer made a few bucks on the missing one! Can't complain because the final price was right. This is a great...
  15. Other Rifles
    Hi. Hope someone can help me here. I'm trying to top off my collection and was wondering if someone might have some positive and negative points on an SSG 04 I'm eyeballing. I have heard that some don't like the trigger mechanism. But not sure why. Also, if anyone has any ideas where I...

    Took my M9 out to the range today with 147 grain Remington green box ammo. I shot about 120 rounds and still had 2 reset malfunctions. They came at about 80 and 90 rounds and both were second shot off the draw. (I shot the first 75 shots stationary not off the draw) Now I'm trying to narrow...
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    Prior to going to the range last week, I completely field stripped my pistol, plus the extractor mechanism and the firing pin channel, etc... I found some "sludge" in the extractor area and cleaned it out with Powder Solvent and pipe cleaners, etc...It wasn't that bad. My guns are cleaned...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I bought my M9 from CDNN because I knew someone with two and I liked it better than my husbands glock 34. It came, I was excited, I took it to the range and about every other magazine the round would cycle the slide would lock forward with a round in the chamber but the trigger would not...
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi all, Some of you my remember my other thread, "M40 Major Malfunction", in which my friends M40 broke a pin off of the FP catch (part 10 on usasteyr schematic). Well, my friend has still not tried to order parts yet, so I still don't have any pictures of the broken part. Anyways, last...
