reliability

  1. Other Handguns
    Subcompacts, in particular 9mm subcompacts, are a different animal from full sized semi-autos or even compacts 9mm's. These pistols, serving almost exclusively in a self-defense role, should ideally be super reliable. Yet physics works against this because these pistols must do their job of...

    Before i commit myself to any firearm, It has to function and be reliable. I do not adhere to the you tube experts and always formulate my on opinion after some heavy testing. I know that we all have our opinions and in the gun world we seem to be brand specific and not quick to admit our chosen...

    Hey Gang, I know there are probably hundreds of threads about carry ammo on here, but I can't seem to find any information on Hornady Critical Duty 9mm +P. I was told by a coworker that the Critical Duty (CD) are longer bullets and that guns with shorter feed ramps have a hard time cycling...

    It's a little premature for me to panic, but I think I might have just bought a Frankensteyr despite my best efforts. I did not even think that the advertisement said M9 instead of M9A1. The other thing that should have tipped me off is that the NIB gun shipped with 15 rounders instead of 17...

    i have been looking at the pro hunter mountain in stainless steel for some time know. i haven't decided if i want a 223 22-250 or 243, i will mostly be taking head shots at deer and hogs at ranges less than 200 meters. any help deciding on the caliber will be a big help.i have heard conflicting...

    Hi guys new here and looking at my first Steyr. I've had a fullsize 1911 for a while and recently acquired my CHL. I've been carrying my 1911 and I actually conceal it quite well for it's size, but ultimately started to think about what ifs and started to feel like something with a little more...

    Greetings everyone. This is my first post here. Yesterday I took delivery of a brand new PW Arms M9-A1 from Cabelas. Today, I took it out for a test ride and had an odd experience. I'm going to chalk this up to issues with the ammo, but maybe someone here has seen this before. I fired ten...

    I'm relatively new to pistol shooting and recently purchased a NIB M9-A1, it is one of the nicest pistols I have had the pleasure to shoot. I'm having some FTE issues and was hoping to learn from the folks with the knowledge how to resolve my issues. Glock 17 STI GP-6C 9mm S&W M&P 9mm...
  11. 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

    I've shot a lot of AKs in my day and (as long as they're properly assembled) they're all great rifles. From my $400 WASRs to this AK-103K, they do what they were designed to do––-get rounds downrange reliably while being capable of withstanding abuse that would deadline most other rifle...

    Howdy Steyr fans! I'm here because of an expressed interest in the Steyr M9A1. I'd like to learn more about the platform. Strengths, weaknesses, parts and anything I can pull from the minds of the experienced. I think I'd like to add one to my lineup of pistols. Something about the look...

    I am trying to decide if I want to update my carry pistol from a glock 26 to a S9a1. I love my m9a1 does any one have any thoughts? Are ther any places in dfw that sell them ?
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    better trigger, better ergos, In my personal opinion better looks. why is Glock a contender at all? is it all in the advertising?
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Ok. I own or have owned: Glock, Caracal C, M&P, Kahr, Walther PPQ, XD9. I'm looking for the 'perfect' gun for me for: Carry & IDPA. I always shoot IDPA with my carry gun. Right now that is a Gen4 G19. I have held the Steyrs, and I like the feel. Better trigger than my Glock also. My PPQ is...

    I took my first tactical shooting class last week and other than my Steyr USR everyone had ARs. About 5 out of 10 of them had some kind of jam/double feed. (I was kind of enjoying it) Not to brag, but the Steyr was flawless. I was told that most AR failures are magazine related. OK fine, so...

    The P64 is a DA/SA blowback pistol that appears to be (because it is) very similar to Walther's PPK. The designers of the pistol deny that it's a PPK clone and insisted it is an original design---sure...:D In my opinion, the fact that it's very similar to the PPK is a good thing in my...
  19. Caracal C and F Series
    New to the forum and I'm impressed. Lots of great Caracal information here; I'm just hoping to add another point of view. I've had these guns for about 3 weeks and I only wish I had them longer. Accuracy-great. Reliability-great. Ease of maintenance--great. Ergos---great for me. I really...

    I don't recall seeing a report thread for C9-A1 owners, just a thoughts thread. So for those interested in the C9-A1, those of us with a C9-A1 can give them a heads up on reliability. As for reliability on mine, I've had 3 FTE's in 300 rounds, the first didn't happen till 185, then I had a...
