    Hello all, I’ve been lurking around for a while and have seen several variations of what I’m about to ask but with no concrete answers. I have a Steyr C9-A1 that’s marked Trussville, AL. This gun started out alright but soon began to eject erratically. After about 50 rounds it absolutely locked...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi All, I have a M9-A1, latest gen with roller pin. According to its production code it was manufactured April 2012. It has somewhere between 500-600 rounds through it.I noticed one day after cleaning that it had an issue with resetting the trigger. It would reset if cycled slowly, but not if I...

    I've read that the gap between the slide and frame on the new L9A1 series pistols is much more pronounced than previous versions of the gun. I wonder if any of you owners could break out a micrometer and put a number to that? Any info would be appreciated!

    Proud owner of a brand new SA1 .40 How often should I clean this weapon ? The Manual recommendation is after every use. I cleaned it out of the box. Put 50 rounds down range with no problems. Went home and cleaned it last night. It seemed very dirty -took many patches etc.. Perhaps the FMJ 180...

    I'm trying to troubleshoot the erratic ejection on my C9A1, and I heard that erratic ejection often is due to a faulty extractor. I also heard that a good extractor will hold the round in place as it's pulled back, and if you clear the pistol with no mag in it, the round should still kick out...

    Today I got in the mail my ASG Airsoft Steyr M9 pistol. I have been watching eBay for some time and they came back into stock. So far so good. I have open the box, fondled it a bit, and read the brief instructions. The piece is very well built, steel frame makes it heavier than a real unloaded...
  7. Caracal C and F Series
    After traffic slowed down a bit, it seems the sister forum for Caracal pistols has been inundated with spam bots. Going through that site is now like walking through the remains of a town that's been bombed to hell and back; to find anything useful, or even remotely recognizable, you have to...

    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...

    I searched "drop free" in this forum but came up craps. Any suggestions on making these mags drop free like my glocks? I had some serious trouble yesterday at our local IDPA match. Had to "rip" the mag out every damm time.

    M40 A1: What can it do, what can go with it ? What I do know is that: Current M40 can be converted to 357 sig with a barrel change M40 and M357 mags are interchangable if not the same IGB and Steyr sell conversion barrels There are stocks available but no 16" barrels BT and and an Israeli...

    Hi, I just picked up my new M9-A1 today. Can't wait to get to the range.

    Here's the set-up. Steyr M357-A1, excellent condition. Functions 100% in every way - but one. Georgia Arms Canned Heat factory reloaded .357 SIG FMJ ammo. When fired, somewhere through a magazine, the gun will begin producing light primer strikes to the point it will not fire. Gun field...

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to the gun arena in general. Purchased an S40 late last year and during the most recent cleaning I noticed a small fissure in the multifunctional element. I have disassembled it using the various guides posted on the site and have "reassembled" it with what I...

    Had my choice between a "very new" M9-A1 (3 10 round mags w/box), and a used M40-A1. Picked the .40, SMI import, s/n 04708x. 2 12 round mags, no box. What do I need to know? Right choice? Thanks in advance! Gary Semper Fi Semper Fi - Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hello Steyr Club, I have a latest generation Steyr M9-A1 that I bought brand new. I have always thought it was particularly hard to rack/chamber/cock, etc. My friend has an identical steyr and when handling his I did notice that in comparison his was a lot easier to rack the slide back. I...

    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...

    I have a quick question.. I recently bought a 2011 M9-A1 to replace my M40-A1 (not a fan of the recoil of the m40-a1). When I was cleaning it for the first time (I always clean and oil a gun before I shoot it for the first time) I noticed that when I took out the extractor and the extractor...

    Hey friends! I have been on the hunt for a new set of Steyr C9-A1 sights. Back story - I recently had my c9 start building a tiny bit of rust around the print on the slide. After thinking about it I was talking with my friend and I told him, "I am just going to get it reblued or maybe some...

    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...
