    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...

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

    I was turned onto cz from this forum and ended up buying a canik shark-c from buds in od green. I heard they are better quality than some of the cz's. Anyhow I am pleased with it and have already upgraded the springs on it trying to improve the double and single action trigger pull. Which...

    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...

    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    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...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    I almost did not get this pistol because of all the problem threads posted here. My M9 is 100% reliable after 200 rds fired out of the box and will group 3"@25 yds. highly recommended.
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    Attended a pistol class 4-6-13. The class was given by 914 Consulting at C2Shootng and it was a Vickers Shooting Method class. The class was great, the Steyr not so much. It started off fine, you know the drill. You are the only guy that shows up with "the other Austrian Pistol". Had a custom...

    So I was so excited (and rightfully so) to order a set of Glide Rite bushings and a Lee Spring from BT that I ordered 2. Doh! Don't really need the extra set so if someone is interested I will give you a great deal on them.

    Hey guys, just signed up after owning an s9 for a while now. Been shooting it and have had MANY FTE's, stovepipes and FTF's. I thought it was just a matter of time and breakin period. Today I went to the range and shot out of 1 of the original 10 rounders and used (3) 17 rounders, two of which...
  12. Other Handguns
    I am going to be putting my GB on Gunbroker. My hands are just a little bit too small for it, but it is a sweet gun. No box, but I have three mags. In the meantime, I have a few spare parts: Qty: 1 Firing Pin Qty: 1 Firing Pin Return Spring Qty: 1 Decocker Spring Qty: 1 Trigger Spring...

    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. www.cdnninvestments.com/steyr2.html grabagun.com/mag-steyr-m9-a1-9mm-17rd.html...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    I have a M40-A1, I've put maybe a couple hundred rounds through it. I've only ever done the basic field strip as shown in the owner's manual. Right now I'm deployed to Afghanistan and they wouldn't let me take any of my own, nice guns. I have to make do with a beat up M16. But, when I get...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    I had something odd happen today when I went to the firing range. It wasn't something I expected, I had inserted the magazine into my M9A1 (15 round magazine), pulled the slide back, let go, and the slide only moved partially and stopped. I checked to make sure there was no round in the chamber...

  17. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hey Guys, Well this is the first problem I have had with any of my Steyrs. I just bought an S9-A1 and took it to the range. It is shooting great but I have a rather strange problem. I had noticed it before I went to the range but thought maybe a few hundred rounds would sort it out but sadly...

    Gentlemen. I am new to Steyr ownership and so far my enthusiasm was kind of held back by some annoying trigger issues. My gun is a low round count M9-A1 that I just purchased used last weekend. I stripped Ms. Steyr's frame down to every pin, cleaned it, reassembled it and mounted it to the...

    Good morning all, I left a voicemail for Jeff about two and a half weeks ago as his colleague spoke to me and Jeff verbally confirmed with him to transfer me to his voicemail and leave a message about my inquiry. I was asking about getting a replacement extractor and the correct magazine...
