  1. 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...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...
  3. New Member Check-In
    I recently came across an S9 on Armslist. I traded up for it, and all I can say is wow! I have never owned a polymer wonder, but have handled many different kinds and the Steyr feels marvelous! The ergonomics are great and the trapezoidal sight picture makes me wonder why 3 dots are the norm in...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  5. 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...
  6. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Just little minor tweaks this afternoon as I've done all the reliability work and all the BT mods. I filed down the slide stop so it wouldn't be in the way of my grip, and I grip taped my contact points for better traction. Enjoy. http://imgur.com/a/mmS5A#0
  7. 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...

  9. M, C, L and S Series
    I've been doing some digging in other threads and have found I am not alone. I came home after shooting it the first time and cleaned the mags and the weapon really well. I went back out on limited time and fired another 30 shots and had quite a few more FTFs. I have noticed one or two FTEs...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Following the video tutorial on tthe sub frame removal, he shows a safety (?) pin and spring that has to come out. My MA-1 does not have this. The lock pin seems to be hanging onto something and I am afraid to force or pry. Is there some other release spring on this newer model? Excuse the lack...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    I've seen that a lot of people have had trouble removing the factory Steyr sights, so I thought I would share the method I've been using to remove them. They are extremely tight, but it can be done. *** Disclaimer: DO NOT attempt this unless you have the correct tools and a fair knowledge of...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    as the title reads, its very, very slight maybe a millimeter or two. if i pull back on the slide softly and release it doesnt quite go all the way forward. i noticed that while i can still pull the trigger it becomes much heavier and upon the "click" it finishes pushing the slide forward. if...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    I took my new S40-A1 to the range Saturday to try it out. I have heard that they are tight and may have some FTF/FTE initially. I had to fire 100+ rounds before I could get the 1st 10 round mag to not fail in some sort of way. What I had was: 1.) Failure to go into battery mostly 2.) Only one...
  14. Other Handguns
    The Steyr-Hahn Model 1911/12 is a gun that has always fascinated me. As I said here in a comment to Netfotoj in November after he showed a photo of the gun: "By the way, a Steyr Hahn 1911/12 is definitely in my future." Today I found one and have begun the purchase. It's a Chilean contract...
  15. Anything Else
    For some time now, I've been wondering about a way of handling the first stage of a home invasion. These usually start with one person coming to the front door and asking for some kind of favor; a glass of water, use of the phone or to go to the bathroom. As soon as the homeowner opens the door...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Yep, finger slipped off and the spring went flying. Kind of pissed me off because the safety plunger stayed under my finger, but the spring really jumped. Never even heard it hit or land, and it's a big, dirty garage floor. So where do I find another part #24 "Access Lock Spring"? Thanks, Ben
  17. Tactics and Training
    On my first time to handle my M9, I was told my some folks that the trigger should be pulled using the tip of the index finger. I practiced a lot with it but I constantly having difficulty in controlling the pistol after pulling the trigger. I have completely pulled the trigger the pistol...
  18. Other Handguns
    hello people, baught brand new Glock 17, I just wonted to own one Glock, because everyone thinks Glck is just super pistol. Well endeed Glock is indeed very good BUT I discovered that Steyr looks like is been made more precisely.. if you know what I mean. Metal works, quality of polymer frame...
  19. Carry Issues
    Just finished an excellent shooting course here in Florida run by OPS options for personal security (.com). Ran 300 rounds of wolf and cci aluminum 9mm through my M9 with not a hiccup..........Strangely though, I pulled the pistol out and tried pulling the trigger and nothing...
