    Hey all, I had the same problem most of you do with my L9-A1, even after 500 rounds of a variety of bullet weights. True, it likes the hotter stuff but I bought it for plinking. Thus, I made a steel guide rod and used a variable 14 lb 1911 spring (NOT the plunger spring which I tried first and...

    As the title states, I put about 300 rounds through the new gen M9A1 and the casings eject directly to the face. This doesn't happen every shot but maybe 3 out of 10 and certainly is ammo related. Was curious if any of the owners of the new gen m9a1 has had this issue? Thanks.

    ive been wearing my M and MA1's here in florida for years. For the first time i noticed that the sweat had gotten into my mag release and caused issues with rust and malfunctions of the release. I am left side carry, so the right side of the pistol was against my body. In particular it was the...

    Can't seem to find the previous Café Press site that I recently ordered Steyr Club gear from. Can't find anything using "Steyr Club" to search on Café Press. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I just picked up my first Steyr pistol from Cabela's in Owatonna, Minnesota - an M9-A1. I actually traded my Sig P229 .40 S&W for the M9. Date code is LWR - Feb 2013, so fairly new production. I came across the Steyr after researching the Caracal and learned that they were designed by the same...

    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!

    For the most part the brass skims just over the top of my head, but sometimes... it doesn`t. The picture above is from my L9A1 ejecting spent brass directly back at my face; this particular little bugger landed directly between my temple and the arm of my eyepro and happily sat there until I...

    M40 A1: What can it do, what can go with it ? What I do know is that: Current M40 can be converted to 357 sig with a barrel change M40 and M357 mags are interchangable if not the same IGB and Steyr sell conversion barrels There are stocks available but no 16" barrels BT and and an Israeli...

    Being a wimp with small hands, both the weight and the grip size of the M9A1 as well as the short reset is great for me. But what kills me is the trigger pull weight of 25N, while it breaks clean my finger just struggles to produce the amount of force. Is it even technically possible to get it...

    Here's the set-up. Steyr M357-A1, excellent condition. Functions 100% in every way - but one. Georgia Arms Canned Heat factory reloaded .357 SIG FMJ ammo. When fired, somewhere through a magazine, the gun will begin producing light primer strikes to the point it will not fire. Gun field...

    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...

    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...

    Hey y'all! In a few weeks I will be getting my Armed Guard License in Tennessee so I can pick up some extra dough on the weekends during events needing extra security from time to time. I already have a universal drop-leg holster (which is amazing i might add), but am looking for a preferred...

    Hi there, as the title says, the edge of the feed ramp of my M9A1 (Frankensteyr) just broke (it's a small piece) but the gun is only 4,000 rounds give or take a few hundred. And living where I do, it's nearly impossible to get a new barrel. Also the paperwork for getting a new barrel is hell...
  16. Other Rifles
    Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and was wondering if there was a resource where I could read up on and learn about the different model bolt action rifles with the model-letter designations (L,M, SSG, for instance)? I have searched the forum and learned a bit, but was looking for...

    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...

    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...
  19. AUG, MSAR
    I have found a former MSAR dealer who no longer has rifles in stock and doesn't plan to get any more but has what he terms "a bunch" of MSAR magazines. I asked him if he would be willing to sell me the mags at a discount (he has them marked at $39 for 30-rounders and $45 for 42-rounders). He...

    Hello All, Checking in from Bucks County, Pa. Just picked up a new, M9..can't wait to get to Wicen's Shooting Range. I've been overwhelmed by the conflicting information regarding the pro's and con's of this firearm. So, what's the bottom line? What should I look for first if issues arise...
