reliability

  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Good Afternoon everyone, I just picked up my pistol license and am looking at snagging my first pistol. I'm strongly leaning towards the Steyr M9A1, just worried about some reliability issues i've been hearing on here. Have the latest gen models sorted that out? Do you think the steyr M9A1...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    as i had posted, i had not cleaned my Steyr M9 for several years and wanted to see how long it would go before it would bonk. This past weekend i took a class that ran some 1300 rounds. The pistol ran great though i did put a little oil on the slide sat night. Anyway i decided since i had the...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    I am a new member of the club and this is my first thread (although I have been lurking for some time). I was wondering if I could get some feedback from those members that have bought the PW arms weapons from Cabellas or Dan’s ammo. Specifically, have they been reliable overall and what has...
  4. Other Handguns
    Took the re-hammered GB out today for a quick 30 round smoke and function test. In every respect it exceeded my expectations for smoothness , accuracy, reliability and O-Yeah soot build up. Holy Moly filthy . 30 rounds transformed the internals into a tailpipe from a crosstown bus. Is this a...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has done the trigger cleanup tutorial or any of the others, and if so what result did you get? Was your gun better and still reliable??
  6. Caracal C and F Series
    I acquired a Caracal F about a year ago when they were first released (reviewed here). I was so impressed by the fullsize that I decided to acquire a compact to compliment it, with the hope of replacing my Steyr M9A1 CCW with a Caracal C. I bought a Caracal C a few weeks ago, and thus far it...

  8. M, C, L and S Series
    Took my new Steyr M9 A1 to the range today. This is one of the older "Imports", Mid 40,000 serial number. I was concerned about the reliability and read most of what is posted here on the subject. Took the gun completely apart and cleaned everything and did some "Big Taco" work on the firing...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    S model with C model innards and reliability? I've been doing a lot of handgun shooting lately, and the handgun that has stood out the most in terms of shootability is the Steyr M, S, and C series. Simply put, they excel in all categories except out of the box reliability in the case of the M...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    I'm seriously debating between a Glock and the M9A1 and right now the Steyr is leading. I've printed out the list of serial numbers with the firing pin issue, so hopefully I'll avoid picking one of those up. But my questions are; 1) Can I shoot reloads or do I have to use specific ammo? If so...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey folks. Recently Buds has gotten new shipments of the M9A1 and I've been thinking about picking one up. However, I've read a lot of topics on here about folks having FTE issues and replacing extractors. Is this a common occurrence with the M9A1? Also, are there any other current reliability...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    I thought it would be interesting to know - How exactly did you come to know about Steyr, and what convinced you buy your Steyr pistol? Lately, they are seldom in Gun Shops, you occasionally see them at gun shows - so how did you hear about them?? OBTW, I read my first thread about the Steyr...
  13. Carry Issues
    I want to get a Keltec for ultra-concealment situations. I've had an equal number tell me that ballistically the .380 version is superior to the .32 ACP version and vice-versa. They are the same size and price so what do you all think? Please also recommend a load for your caliber preference...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    I've already spent around 1500 rounds... and my M9 is just getting better... been using all types of ammo and never had any issues. I bought a 1911 at half the price of my m9, brand new but I have to spend some more money to make it work well... The Steyr is the least expensive assault pistol...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    I finally had a chance to fondle an M1A 40 at the gunshow last month....I must have one. I am a longtime Glockaholic, but this thing is a work of modern art. I'm in the process of trading off my beloved G-20 for one of these, wish me well!
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Greetings shipmates, I just cancelled an order for SA XD40 for a M40-a1. I went to work today and started surfing 'bout the steyr m-a1. Now, I read a lot of unreliability issues regarding the m9, what about the M40-A1? anybody have any problems with it??? Just curious...
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    I realize I did this backwards; I ordered some from CDNN and now I'm asking how it works! Does anyone have any experience with this ammo? I'm interested mainly in feed reliability and muzzle flash. I ordered it because I assume (and yes, I know that's an acronym :)) the muzzle flash will be...
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi folks, I've really gotten into 3-gun competition in the last couple of months, and my M9 is really pulling its weight - especially because I SUCK at loading my shotgun. Now that I have figured out that I can't go 600+ rounds without cleaning WHILE attempting to use Remington UMC it is...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    I just noticed someone posting about 7 FTE's out of 100 rds with WWB 115 gr ammo. I have had only two FTE in about 700 rounds, and both were WWB 115gr. Have any of you noticed if you are having more probs with WWB than other ammo? Mine fires blazer and blazer brass, magtech, and even fired...
  20. Anything Else
    Hi, I'm a G19 user since I can remember. I test a Steyr M9 & I love it. Before buying my own, I have a big doubt. In the pool more than 70% of the people love it anda use for as CCW. BUT more than 20 NOT. RELIABILITY: this is my concern, 1. different types of ammo 2. cleaning and aso on. ¿Is...
