  1. Other Handguns
    Installing the hammer and hammer springs on the Steyr GB can be challenging because each hammer spring must be wound and its fixed (hooked) end inserted into a cavity in the underside of the sear (Figure 1). This can be done using some thin steel wire, a hook tool or dental pick, and a flat...
  2. Holsters
    Hey all- First of all, no paid advertisement here...just wanted to give an update regarding a custom leather holster company that I've been eyeing for a while called Winthrop Holsters http://www.winthropholsterstore.com/servlet/StoreFront. They're in Lakewood, Ohio (north side of Cleveland area...
  3. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Happy Memorial Day! I'm having a dis-assembly problem with my M40 handgun while trying to remove the sub frame from the polymer grip. I can't get the manual safety engagement pin to come out. I've followed the online sub frame removal tutorial to the letter I believe and still can't get it to...

    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...
  5. Other Rifles
    My buddy has this rifle and I am going to trade for it. I looked up how to date them on here and several other places but can't figure this one out since it has no 3 letter date code, just a 6 digit serial number. It has the brown stock, iron sights and set trigger so I am also not exactly...

    I saw Steyr at the 2013 NRA event in Houston. Nice set up and got to finally put my hands on an "L" model. They feel just as great as I hoped they would! We will be getting one mid-summer and plan to add them to our holster line up and quick ship program right away! Here's Jeff showing off one...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi! Today at the end of my training M9-A1 refused to reset. After I came home, I noticed that catch (nr 10 on parts diagram) would not come up to catch the firing pin. When I fully disassembled the frame, I have noticed that one of the tails of catch spring (part number 12) was broken. In total...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    So I shot my Steyr M40 A1 for the second time today. I have shelved it and the rest of my guns because of the Ammo debacle! Anyhow I finished up teaching my NRA course and shot only about 15 rounds through it...Man I am sold!!! The gun is so under rated!!! I love the sights to. Really easy...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi there, I sent my '05 M40-A1 into Steyr to have them fix the trigger safety not resetting all the time. I also mentioned that I sometimes have brass hit me on top of the head when firing it. They fixed the safety and replaced the extractor and ejector and sent it back to me. They were very...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    I've been scouring the web for more info on this, does anyone know the backstory on the Frankensteyrs? Mine is one of the PW Arms imports. Year code SOF. I have the M9 slide with the old extractor, the new frame with the rail. Serial number is in the 040 range, so are this refurbs? The frame has...
  12. Ask Bubits
    Looking over the internet, there is some information as to Mr. Bubits' designs etc. I am curious as to what his actual contributions were to the Glock design. Did he design the thing from the ground up, or just some of the features. One website says he was responsible for the Gen 3 design i.e...
  13. Other Handguns
    So I was awoken this afternoon (worked night shift in ED last night) by my twin brother who could not stop RAVING about the Steyr Ma1 40 S&W I made him buy. He went on for minutes and said after the very first shot he was a fan and "in love." I am still waiting for mine to show up by mid...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Okay here's my Steyr S40 A1 journey. My children ordered a Steyr S40 A1 for Christmas for me on December 21st (What great kids!) It finally arrived on January 23rd. I took to the range on the January 27th. I fired 75 rounds of Federal range & target ammo through it without one hitch. Prior to...

    Hi, new to forum. I recently purchased a M111 professional in 30.06 used from Cabelas. Appearance was fine but in shooting for the first time, I experienced three fail to fires. Primer was dented in each case and the rest of the ammo from the same box fired fine. (Norma 165 grn) Not reloads...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi Guys :) Hope you're all havin' a great Holiday Season. It seems that the M, S, and C -A1's are in short supply, at present. (Course, we been there before. <shrug>) The only 9MM Steyr pistols I can find at the moment are some of the ol' PW Arms, Redmond, WA, hybrids AKA "an M Series upper...
  20. Other Rifles
    Hi all, First post. Looking to buy a Pro Hunter and would appreciate any advice. My b/g is mainly in smaller calibres and want to buy a centrefire rifle to try it out. Currently my budget is pointing towards a ProHunter, most likely in .243 (as that would be enough for the ranges I'd be...
