  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Proud owner of a brand new SA1 .40 How often should I clean this weapon ? The Manual recommendation is after every use. I cleaned it out of the box. Put 50 rounds down range with no problems. Went home and cleaned it last night. It seemed very dirty -took many patches etc.. Perhaps the FMJ 180...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    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.

    Howdy! I live in Texas and work in the oil patch. Just ordered myself an S40A1 pistol today. Should have it by the weekend. Look forward to taking it to the range. Take care all!
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    I recently acquired a new S9-A1 which was manufactured in 09/2012. The firing pin spring was coated with some sort of red lubricant paste. Does anyone know exactly what it is? FWIW, I put it's first 200 rounds (Federal 115 grain FMJ RN) through it last week. With the exception of shooting a bit...

    Hi, Have you ever noticed all those owner-taken photos of black guns with beautiful slightly glossy finishes? What trick(s) are people using to achieve this?

    Hello, First let me say your community here has already been a treasure trove of info for me in selecting and purchasing my new S9-A1. I love my Ruger LCP and Sig P290RS, but after shooting my brother's old trusty M9-A1 for the umpteenth time, I decided to make the hour and forty five minute...
  8. Holsters
    Not being able to find a good quality IWB holster for a decent price. I bought a Bianchi 100 Professional size 11 for my M40. After a treatment of neatsfoot oil and letting the pistol mildly form the holster...It fits like a glove. I dunno how good it will work with the A1 series but it works...
  9. The Pub
    Guys I thought it would be neat to see how many walks of life steyr represents so I wanted to take a poll on our members occupations. Sorry if this is too forward but we all have choosen steyr so I figure we all enjoy the finer things in life I'll go first 8 years of schooling in history to...
  10. Other Rifles
    New guy here with a question. Do you guys use gun oil or grease when you lube the bolt and bolt rails? I just got an M95 carbine and i'm in the process of disassembling and cleaning it. Thought I had seen somewhere to use grease to lube the bolt but can't remember. Thanks! Mike

  12. Caracal C and F Series
    what are you using to clean your caracal pistol?:confused::confused::confused:
  13. Caracal C and F Series
    So I've been looking around for my first pistol that will eventually be used as a CCW and I've narrowed it down to a few options. One of which is obviously the caracal, but my problem is that I cannot find a reputable IWB holster for one. I know RKBA makes one but I can't find anything about...

    Anyone has Experience with M40 ? please chair with me .
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi folks. My M9-A1 was supposed to arrive yesterday but useless Canada Post dropped the ball. Hopefully it arrives Monday instead of being lost forever to limbo. Stressful. Anyway... I'm a relative newb and have never disassembled or cleaned a firearm before, short of using a bore snake in my...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    I'm a relatively new M9-A1 owner. I got mine a few weeks ago after blueorison was kind enough to let me test drive his M9 at the range. But this is more a review of the grip I put on the gun. I've always wanted a grip that was actually shaped like someones hand and well, now I have just that...

    Fluid Film (whats that?) (no is not an ad) (made this shorter for everyone so it doesn't suck as bad to read) Rust sucks. So does corrosion. Lets stop it. The problem with preventative measures is that they are generally petroleum based or have some sort of solvent in them, so what happens...
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    as i had posted, i had not cleaned my Steyr M9 for several years and wanted to see how long it would go before it would bonk. This past weekend i took a class that ran some 1300 rounds. The pistol ran great though i did put a little oil on the slide sat night. Anyway i decided since i had the...

    My cousin sent me a video which I tried to post with absolutely no luck (sorry im technology challenged) It's an adapter that screws on to your threaded barrel (*$90) and you screw on a car oil filter . SURPRISINGLY it works well for any caliber. Oh the tax stamp for the adapter is $200...
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    The fired casing from my M40 (original, bought new around 2004) has always have firing drag mark, I thought it was by design.... then I read somebody's post saying there is some kind of "upgrade recoil spring" (or something in that nature) to fix this issue in the M9. Is such "upgrade"...
