    I haven't seen this reported before; the Firing Pin Spring Guide broke by fatigue in a rather light used M9-A1 (around 600-800 shots. See it here: Here you can see two additional fractures that can breake in any moment ... I'm perplexed by this problem ... any ideas about the cause...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi there, as the title says, the edge of the feed ramp of my M9A1 (Frankensteyr) just broke (it's a small piece) but the gun is only 4,000 rounds give or take a few hundred. And living where I do, it's nearly impossible to get a new barrel. Also the paperwork for getting a new barrel is hell...
  3. New Member Introductions
    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...

    Hello All, Checking in from Bucks County, Pa. Just picked up a new, M9..can't wait to get to Wicen's Shooting Range. I've been overwhelmed by the conflicting information regarding the pro's and con's of this firearm. So, what's the bottom line? What should I look for first if issues arise...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    I just got a spare barrel in from a trade; its barrel serial is 30477XX. My first Steyr, and the one I shoot the most/all the time is an M9 and the barrel serial starts with a 0 as the first digit. I eyed the replacement when it came in and something looked different. Compared it to my old...

    I'm debating buying an extended, ported (maybe comp'ed) match barrel for my M9-A1, anyone know who makes/sells them? (I know Steyr offers threaded replacement barrels but I haven't seen what I'm looking for from Steyr) I've checked with; BarSto (they said "no") StormLake (they said "no") EFK...

    after 2 sessions full of extraction problems i finally got a replacement extractor from steyr. i did not get a new spring set up. put the new extractor in and today had zero problems with 200 rounds fired. i was getting pretty frustrated. im a happy guy now and my steyr is working great and...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    I have a spare extractor laying around and I was wondering if these types of extractors were problem types or if they are worth it for people are needing parts. The old warranty guy in Iowa sent me one when I was having issues with my old M9, pretty sure I never used it and just sold the...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    I love my M9A1, but the thin plastic basepad on the 17rd mags is weak. I'm not sure how much abuse they will take, like being stepped on during IDPA matches. If I have black anodized aluminum replacement pads made, would anyone else be interested?
  11. Ammunition and Reloading
    The Experiment. It is an impressive experiment, to be sure. There are hotlinks on the left of the page to take you to the different parts of the experiment. If you're lazy and just want the short answer, brass is typically more reliable and easier on your barrel but if you shoot exclusively...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Thought I would share a few places that look to have mags in stock since the political insanity is making it difficult to find them.
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello All, I ordered a few M9 17 round magazines from R&R Arms out in MN back in Jan. For various reasons I only got my hands this week. Three were simply wrapped in a plastic with their barcode label on the tight plastic. The other two were wrapped in the same tight plastic, but they were...

    Anyone have the S&W version? I have read there is much ado about the S&W version. What are your thoughts?

    Look what I found while performing maintenance on the slide, I hope I can get it replaced.
  16. Caracal C and F Series
    Interesting story developing about a Caracal C slide fracture and separation during live fire. Thought some Caracal owners may be interested... Original Thread Here. EDIT: The purpose of this post was for informational purposes only, and not intended to dissuade anyone from the Caracal...
