    Are the triggers the same for the Model M/S/L the same as the SSG 69? I picked up an older Model M '06 yesterday with the type 1 non adjustable trigger. It would be fine for bench work but at under 1.5 pounds its too light in general. Steyr said I could buy the type 2 for bukoo bucks, but I see...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...
  3. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    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...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Does this seem normal to you guys? This is a loaded gun with only a slight amount of pressure put on the front of the slide. It will hold back and stay held back. This gun was mfg. November of 2012. The trigger is also 7lb 11oz average by my lyman digital scale. What's up with this thing?
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi all, After being shot briefly yesterday by my Pastor (who loved the gun, by the way), my S40-A1 has started to make a strange rattling noise when I tilt the gun up or down. It also feels as if something is sliding around in the slide. I immediately unloaded the gun and took it apart to...

    Hey Guys, Well this is the first problem I have had with any of my Steyrs. I just bought an S9-A1 and took it to the range. It is shooting great but I have a rather strange problem. I had noticed it before I went to the range but thought maybe a few hundred rounds would sort it out but sadly...

    I'm looking to buy A Steyr Scout in .308 . To purchase this rifle is no trile sum for me. That being said I'll admit I'm a bit of a gun snob. I know this rifle is somewhat one of a kind. Is it really worth it ? I do want the best. Tell me why this rifle is tops, or is there a better option ?
  8. The Soap Box
    I'm asking for your help and support in the cause of freedom for the law abiding citizens this of this country! I do believe that the sort of numbers below may just speak volumes and assist in the efforts to gain the attention of our representatives in Washington and prod them to do that which...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    I'll get some video up on this as well. I'll have to get the lighting setup just right with the camera to pick up the black. So, what we've talked about in a few threads here is when you rack the gun to make it live, set the striker/trigger, there is a slight wobble you can have front and back...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Today I got my hands on an S9-A1 and I already have a problem with it. Whenever I pull the slide back to chamber a round, the slide can be knocked out of battery through just a little force from pushing the slide forward. The force of the recoil spring does not put the slide back in place...
  11. Other Handguns
    Let me preface this by saying---there's more than one 'right' way to grip a handgun. That said, there's a lot of wrong ways and I see that all to often so that's the root of this post and video. I shot a quick how to video for shooters out there who don't know how to properly grip a semi...
  12. Caracal C and F Series
    Any plans for a .45? I love my Fullsize QS and want a .45
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    This post is intended to describe one way to install the additional plunger spring to fix the FTE problems which some M series pistols experience. The details of the where and why of doing this and the good results obtained are scattered elsewhere throughout the club website - my intention is to...
  14. Ammunition and Reloading
    next time you wonder what exactly is the difference between .223 rem and 5.56 nato the answer is 12,000 psi. .223 rem is rated at about 50,000 psi and 5.56 nato is rated at about 62,000 psi. i think there also might be some very slight chamber dimentional differences.i very much like the...

    Having had the striker pin smear like most of you, I was trying to think why. How does the striker pin cause the smear? The obvious answer is that it is sticking out when the case starts moving. When does the case start moving? It starts moving when the case impacts the ejector. If the...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    The biggest reason I was leaning towards the .40 was stopping power. I want a subcompact for the occasional conceal carry but I'm concerned about the handle length- thus the C9 enters the picture. I'm concerned, God forbid, I ever have to use it in a quick draw one hand save my life, the .40...

    Have a SSG 69 original green stock that crumbled apart along with the trigger guard. Replaced both about ten years ago. Have made an effort to only snug the mounting screws and this helped but alas, this trigger guard is also shattering around the mounting screw holes. Black stock still looks...
  18. Anything Else
    Can anyone please furnish Pix and deminsions, etc. of the Barrel Release Lever Spring. I've been searching for months and can't find one to purchase. Maybe I can find someone to make one. Year-1914, model-1909 in 6.35(25ACP). Thanks,
  19. Ammunition and Reloading
    Or not? Coming from FN FAL's, where you can run either caliber, I am hoping to be able to run 7.62 NATO through a .308 Pro Hunter, because I have plenty of 7.62 NATO on hand. Before anyone says "but they're the same!".... they're not exactly. Typically the NATO rounds are higher-pressure...
