    Hello, I just purchased a M40 Steyr And was wanting to know what the best ammo is to use in this ?

    I also noticed that the strike was more off center then I would have imagined. Other than that the pistol has fired flawlessly. NOT that I believe it did but COULD the BT striker cups have aided or caused the light primer strike?

    Hey y'all! I bumped into a Steyr S9-A1 at a gun show and started investigating because it just felt so danged good in my hand. Eventually I made up my mind I wanted a C9-A1 because of the hi-cap mags. I called SAI, distributors, dealers that had Steyrs in old listings. None. Zip. Nada Finally...

    Hello all!! I am a new proud owner of s Steyer S40 A1 and I have to say that I am very impressed with the gun. I took possession of it this past wed and took it to the range today. Put 200 rounds of that white box winchester 100 rnd box without ANY issues at all. It is the most accurate gun I've...

    I recently came across these pictures of an m9-a1 with what looks to be a reversible mag catch. I know this is available on the new L9 pistols, but was unaware of them on the m9. I don't really need this feature(being right handed), but the larger catch is nice). Anyone ever seen this before?

    I just picked up my first Steyr pistol from Cabela's in Owatonna, Minnesota - an M9-A1. I actually traded my Sig P229 .40 S&W for the M9. Date code is LWR - Feb 2013, so fairly new production. I came across the Steyr after researching the Caracal and learned that they were designed by the same...

    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...

    I'm new to your site today and would appreciate advice on the following - when I bore sighted my SG08 .338 Lapua rifle with Smidt & Bender PM2 sight on Warne mounts, it took 44.25 moa to zero on the aiming mark. This leaves 19.75 moa to shoot with which doesn't really meet my expectations for...

    Hi! I'm an army veteran from Ontario, Canada, and after a few months of shooting my M40A1, I am now a hopeless Steyr Fanboy. (To the point that I am selling off other guns to save for an SSG69).

    I thought about picking up an M9-A1 a few years ago, but held off because of the problems I was reading about. Mostly FTF and ejection issues. I haven't read about any problems in a while. Are the new manufacture M9-A1s good to go?

    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...

    Hello all, I'm a newbie to the club, and I did a forum search on this issue but I had no luck there... Does anyone know where I can find a 30-60MOA slanted picatiny rail to put on top of my HS-50? I understand that the newer HS-50's have a 20MOA slanted base on them. In fact, I may be the...

    Hello Steyr Fans, I went to the range for the first time with my new to me Steyr M9 (not A1) that came with two ten round mags. I shot some other handguns, namely Sig P226, Beretta PX4, and XD9. I purchased the M9 after reading so many good things about the accuracy of the 9mm version of this...

    Hi there, My eldest daughter loves my M40-A1 but does not like the recoil. So this weekend she bought an 2004 M9 at the local gun show. We took it home and I showed her how to clean and lube it. We fired it at the range today. She loves it, but with all three mags. the slide would not lock open...
