    As the title states, I put about 300 rounds through the new gen M9A1 and the casings eject directly to the face. This doesn't happen every shot but maybe 3 out of 10 and certainly is ammo related. Was curious if any of the owners of the new gen m9a1 has had this issue? Thanks.

    Hi Steyrclub... I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I own a Steyr AUG A3 BullPup which I recently purchased and have not had an opportunity to shoot it yet... however, I am really look forward to the day as it is ready to go and I am very proud of it. Looking forward to sharing...

    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...

    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.

    Howdy! I live in Texas and work in the oil patch. Just ordered myself an S40A1 pistol today. Should have it by the weekend. Look forward to taking it to the range. Take care all!

    For the most part the brass skims just over the top of my head, but sometimes... it doesn`t. The picture above is from my L9A1 ejecting spent brass directly back at my face; this particular little bugger landed directly between my temple and the arm of my eyepro and happily sat there until I...

    Hi, folks. I've been a long-time owner of the Steyr M -- I have two M40s that I got right after they came out. But over the years I have moved away from the .40 and now in autos I shoot mainly 9mm and .45. I've sold off most of my .40s but it has occurred to me that since I really like the...

    Being a wimp with small hands, both the weight and the grip size of the M9A1 as well as the short reset is great for me. But what kills me is the trigger pull weight of 25N, while it breaks clean my finger just struggles to produce the amount of force. Is it even technically possible to get it...

    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...

    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...

    I have a nonworking GB that is in otherwise good condition. It has bad hammer springs that were causing light primer strikes. My gunsmith has pulled the springs out, and tried to find then make some, but had no luck. I do have the original springs that came out of it, but they are not installed...

    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...

    I recently acquired a new S9-A1 which was manufactured in 09/2012. The firing pin spring was coated with some sort of red lubricant paste. Does anyone know exactly what it is? FWIW, I put it's first 200 rounds (Federal 115 grain FMJ RN) through it last week. With the exception of shooting a bit...

    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...

    I installed these and am very pleased. made the trigger very smooth. The Glocks have the delrin cups standard. Not sur why Bubbits made this on metal, but it just drags on the fp spring. Get tacko cups

    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...
