  1. M, C, L and S Series
    I finally got to go to the range and shoot my new M9A1. It did not go as well as I had hoped. The gun started out great. I was dead on accurate with the gun. The Trap sights are really really great. People were coming over to look at the gun and its sights. My 1st group was three inches...
  2. Carry Issues
    Hello Everyone, Thanks for reading, and hopefully chiming in. A bit of background: I was raised in a family with firearms. My extended family also was pro-firearms. Safety instruction began as far back as I can remember. So that being said, I consider myself at a basic level of "competent"...
  3. The Soap Box
    While it's clear from my sig where my loyalties lie, I want to point out a currently running news story that should make us all pause. The shooting of the teenager in FL, by the Neighborhood Watch volunteer shows the powder keg waiting for us when we use our weapons. If you live on a piece of...
  4. Holsters
    Hello everyone, I am looking at acquiring a C9-A1. I also want to add the Viridian C5L. I am looking for a IWB holster that supports the two. At this point, I can't even find support of a normal holster for the C9. I have emails to BladeTech and Dale Fricke holsters, but have yet to hear...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    I've been looking for a smaller carry gun for some time now and yesterday, at the shop, someone shoved a M9-A1 into my hand and I really like the feel. The grip and sights felt and looked natural, the mags loaded easily, I loved the ultra-low muzzle axis, and the quality was higher than I had...
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    Newcomer to forum, but not to Steyr pistols. Just bought, ran 200 trouble-free rounds through, and started to carry a Sa1 9. I rank this pistol right up there with my HK P7 in terms of accuracy and ease of carry. After only a few days of carry, I have noticed the black finish on the left front...

    C9-A1 - first impressions *** 2.23.12 UPDATE *** Well, I'll start with the positives (as compared to my 1st generation M40)! LOVE the new grip! My hands sit higher (more on top of the gun) and I like the slightly more aggressive cut in at the top). The texture as well! Basically a great...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    My brother bought a Steyr M40 back in November of 2001. I went out with him one time shortly after his purchase and shot the gun and loved it. I actually just started looking into buying a gun recently and ended up buying his M40. He told me that he had put less than 50 rounds through it. I have...
  9. AUG, MSAR
    Do you guys know of a way to determine the build date of aug mags. I was told the alphanumeric on the mag does it..? Anyone with some insight on that would be much appreciated

    Malfunction Junction - UPDATE Post #39 In retrospect I made what was probably not the wisest decision - but one based on past experience with other maker's guns. I purchased a new M9-A1 early in December. This is the newest generation with the slide cross-pin and without the LCI. I really...

    Hi! Find below some subcompact ecstasy, my 2 preferred ccw's, the CZ RAMI 2075D in 9, and the TAURUS MIL PRO PT 145 in cal.45 ACP. Probably the perfect "twins", in terms of dimensions, very similar, kind of: Caliber: Taurus PT 145 : .45 ACP CZ RAMI 2075 D: 9X19 Capacity TAURUS PT 145 ...

  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi, Just got delivery of a 9mm S-A1 this week and after blowing off a box of 50, all I could say is WOW. This is hands down the finest firearm I have ever shot. It fits perfect in my hand. The sights allow quick target acquisition, and the perceived recoil is very manageable. It's been a...
  14. The Pub
    So back in September I found a m9-a1 for sale at Cabelas in Montana for 450. Well I had promised my girlfriend a gun for over a year and it was about time I owned up to my promise. I immediately told her to put in her pistol permit application, which takes at least 60 days in Jersey, and put a...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    I took my new S40-A1 to the range Saturday to try it out. I have heard that they are tight and may have some FTF/FTE initially. I had to fire 100+ rounds before I could get the 1st 10 round mag to not fail in some sort of way. What I had was: 1.) Failure to go into battery mostly 2.) Only one...

    Hi all, I thought it was time to post a review of my new Steyr S9-A1 that was originally posted on Glock Talk's Gun Club threads. http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1352008 I put it on that site thinking there's no sense preaching to the choir here, and in another day or two I'll be...

    Hi Everyone, My name is Jim, and I live outside of Detroit, Michigan USA! I was looking into a Ruger SR40C for a new addition to my collection, and a friend at work informed me he was selling his Steyr......so I started some research on the M40 Steyr, what seems to be a fine pistol. He plans...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi M9A1 shooters, A few weeks ago I started a thread about FTE's (failure to feed) on my new pistol. http://www.steyrclub.com/vb/threads/8742-Improvements-fixes-Steyr-made-on-the-2nd-gen-M9-A1 I took all the advice I got into consideration and went back to the range to break in my gun. I shot...
  20. Other Rifles
    I did a little trading this week. I had three bolt rifles (Savage and Remington) that I had restored and were extraneous, mostly trading fodder. I decided to deal them. When the shop made their offer I suddenly had enough for a new Kimber 84M LPT (Light Police Tactical) in .308 and a Leupold...
