  1. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  2. 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...
  3. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    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...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    It has been a while since I last posted and thought I would share my fantastic experience with my new M9-A1. I sold my old M9 to a friend of mine and used the money to finally get the new M9-A1 in March. I purchased it from Trellix Tactical and must say it was a pleasure doing business with...

    Is this normal? Before I stir up a storm with the on-line guy from whence this gun came, I thought I'd ask you guys I just received, today, my "new" M9-A1 Steyr pistol NIB, still had factory grease on rails, etc. but . . unlike any other pistol I've ever purchased (and I have Glocks...

    Like the title of the thread says, I've got a blind date with a March 2013 production Steyr M40-A1. I have never even so much as held one, but that didn't keep me from ordering one today. I'm super excited and I'm anxious to get to know this pistol. One area that I seek knowledge in is...

    Interesting detail buried in a press release about an annual celebration: Jägerbataillon 25 (one of the proof-of-concept "professional" formations with no conscripts) will be equipped with a modernized AUG variant. The single image appears to show an A3 SF. The text mentions a short barrel...

    I have an M40-A, it is heavily scaring the brass, anyone know why? Is this a problem? Or normal? Never seen it before. Help please!!

    on the inside of the frame and complete trigger assembly. I know it is also a degreaser. After the full cleaning where will I re lubricate within the frame and trigger assembly?
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello, I have a Steyr M9a1 with the date code IOW (Sept. 2010). I have not shot the pistol much but my friend is going to use it for a multi-day handgun course. Is there any way to tell if my gun has the updated extractor? I would just hate for it to be a problem mid-course. I am also...

    Use only non-linting materials to clean the striker or firing pin channel in actually any weapon. Lint can cause light strikes by itself, and with dirt, it can really muck things up. Coffee filters or Chem-X filters are non-woven materials which will clean well and not leave fibers behind. Cut...

    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

    I'm really really really digging this one!!!:thumbsup::D Picked her up today. Ran home cleaned it up and took the S9 and my Sig P938 (which was just returned from Sig this week) to the range. I had 0 malfunctions. Weapon performed flawlessly. Listed is what I ran through it (288 rounds...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Yes, that's about the size of it! 100 rounds, 50 Remington UMC 165 grain JHP, 50 Federal 165 grain FMJ. The gun is brand spankin' new, CWO date code. I was loading one magazine with the UMCs, then I'd shoot one magazine with the Federals, and alternate magazines. First 30-40 rounds were...

    Well, it was a gorgeous day and I had a little time to shoot so I put 100nds through my new S9A1. I had some WWB ammo from Wal-Mart to try. I had alot of FTE and alot of spent cases bouncing off my head.:willynilly: I pretty much was expecting it from the posts here. My plan is to keep it clean...

    I just picked up a Steyr M9 serial no. 7xxx. I simply love this firearm. The only problem I have is the erratic ejection and an occasional casing to the face. I've ran 110 rounds so far and it's been wwb and tulammo. Is this due to these rounds being lower power? It's ate through everything...
  18. Caracal C and F Series
    I always did want to have a Glock, but without the price tag attached to it in our part of the woods ($3500 or above!). I did strictly consider getting a Steyr M9A1 (3rd Gen, before the roller based striker pin!), but that too at $2500 was still pretty steep. Then came news of Caracal, and its...
