  1. 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...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey guys, I've been shopping Viridian's offerings lately and I'd like a laser/light set-up but I've got a couple of questions. Which one for an M-A1? C5L? I Found a lightly used "universal" X5L locally, would that work? What's the difference between the standard C5L and Zombie edition? (Just...

  4. AUG, MSAR
    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...

  6. Anything Else
    Hey all, happy Easter and hope you're having a good one. I had some down-time between; church, eating, hanging out etc. Soooo I decided to swap on a Blackhawk stock/forend set on my Remy 870 clone (H&R or New England Firearms- Partner pump 12g) It makes SUCH a drastic difference to handling...
  7. 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...

    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...

  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello all. I'm new to Steyr, the forum, and to gun ownership! My Steyr m9-a1 is my first gun. (third if you count BB guns when I was a kid) I went to the range with it and three boxes of ammo and had a really good time. I pulled the trigger 150 times and each time the gun fired, the brass was...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi everyone, I have been poking around on this forum for a bit and thought it was high time I joined. I am at a bit of a crossroads. I have a m9a1 on hold at cabelas, yes, it is the hybrid model from Imported through PW. It is on sale for $379 as noted by others here. My question is pretty...
  14. Caracal C and F Series
    Hi guys . I sold a glock 17 today and my Caracal C with standard sights finally came in. Spent some time getting to know it. Broke it down for a good cleaning and I find it was clean all ready and lubed. Did it again anyhow. Went out back and ran a mag full of 124gr GD's thru it. Nice easy to...
  15. Caracal C and F Series
    Finally made up my mind to get one. Will be EDC if it is as reliable as reputed. I need to choose between F and C, normal sights. Size is not an issue. Trigger reset is. I prefer shorter reset. Can you guide me as to if the F really has a trigger reset as bad as sometimes reported?

I'm keepin it on the down low that I dont know squat about firearms, but I'm a pro at spearfishing guns. I took those red snapper's on...
  18. Caracal C and F Series
    So I've been looking around for my first pistol that will eventually be used as a CCW and I've narrowed it down to a few options. One of which is obviously the caracal, but my problem is that I cannot find a reputable IWB holster for one. I know RKBA makes one but I can't find anything about...

    Hey guys I'm new to the steyr club and excited to now be apart of it, I just purchased my first steyr and really like it, I need some advise or helpful tips from you guys that are far more experienced then I am. I bought this gun to be my everyday concealed carrier weapon but right now I do not...
  20. Caracal C and F Series
    Shipped this holster today, thought I would share a picture of it. Also is a picture of a hybrid IWB I made for a buddy of mine. Have been doing a bunch of Caracal holsters lately, glad some guns are finally hitting the market.
