    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 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...

    New S40-A1 owner and have a quick question. I'm very interested in having the flexibility to be able to fire 9mm and .40 through this gun. I see that there is a factory conversion kit but seems a bit overpriced for what you get. Question: Is this the only place one can get this kit or are...

    Just picked up my M9A1 today and have some questions. 1. When I release the mag catch lever the slide comes forward and hits the mag, becoming stuck. When I hit mag lever down with some force(like some people do to load their pistols) the slide did finally go forward, but this isn't something I...

    I have a M40-A1, I've put maybe a couple hundred rounds through it. I've only ever done the basic field strip as shown in the owner's manual. Right now I'm deployed to Afghanistan and they wouldn't let me take any of my own, nice guns. I have to make do with a beat up M16. But, when I get...

    Just got a C9-A1. Decided it was time for a 9mm. Tried range rentals for XD, and Sig 226 and 229. Son has a Glock. Decided on the Steyr. This fit great. Like the strange sights. They work well with older eyes. Not new to shooting or handguns, but new to Steyr. Unfortunately, the trigger...

    Hi guys just joined this forum...seemed like a good idea as I have just purchased my first handgun, a steyr m40a1. Now to be patient and wait for it arrive...

    Hello everyone, I am a new Steyr M-40 owner (not A-1). This is my first firearm that I have owned and it used to be my father's. Im going to school at Eastern Kentucky University where we are working on starting up a Pistol team/club. I absolutely love the M-40 and am looking forward to...

    Looking at getting a Steyr and I want to know if the S9A1 provides a full grip(can I get 4 fingers on the grip). If not, do they sell a grip extension, or can a Pierce grip for another brand pistol be modified to fit the Steyr?
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Background: My first non-issue firearm was a Steyr M9-A1 circa Christmas, 2007. I loved the handgun, though I did have the old "short" magazine spring issue, and Jeff was kind enough to send me a replacement extractor upgrade. Later, when SAI dropped the M9 line from the market, I ditched the...

    First post here, just joined a few minutes ago. I have a dilemma, I am not sure if I should go with an M9A1 or a Caracal F. Either way I want a full sized gun. I have never fired either but i have dry fired both and love the triggers. I was going for the Caracal and then I think I discovered...

    Just purchased my first sniper rifle. Steyr SSG 69P1 w/set triggers, threaded barrel, and 2 extra mags. Also has a Schmidt & Bender 10x42 PM fixed scope w/ P-1 reticle. This is my first toe in the water so to speak so I hope the $1800 was money well spent. Both gun and scope are in excellent...

    After a lot of research online and at YouTube university, I bought the M40-A1 for my first handgun. I'm very happy with it - light weight, smooth shooter and no jams so far.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, as of yesterday I am the proud owner of a M9 - A1 (i think). Bought the gun used, but according to the owner it has only been fired 100 times. The condition of the gun supports said claim, as the finish is immaculate and there is 0 wear on all 3 mags. Took it to the range...
  15. Caracal C and F Series
    I've been a longtime firearms enthusiast and a prominent member of several firearms forum. I've recently added Caracal F QS & Caracal C QS to my collection and decided to join SteyrClub to learn more about these great shooting pistol and expand my firearms knowledge! So with that said, I...
  16. 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...

    I'm a proud new owner of a C9-A1 I will be picking up on Monday. I originally was looking at the M9's at Cabela's but saw the compact and fell in love with the ergo's and trigger so bought that instead. Now I just need an IDPA compliant holster and 5 or 6 extra mags.

    Brand-new C9-A1 owner with trap sights & 3 extra 17-rd mags, thanks to Trellix Tactical. Looking forward to some range time to break it in!! Any tips/thoughts/suggestions on break-in, use, etc much appreciated. Wishing I had a longer thumb for mag release!
  20. Holsters
    Sorry guys and gals, but I do have a stupid question. I have one holster coming from HighDesertLeather coming...an OWB that I ordered for my S9. Now, I will soon be the proud owner of an S40 also. Basically my question is will my new toy necessitate a new holster? I am seeing it is a 3.5mm...
