  1. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    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...
  2. Ask Bubits
    Looking over the internet, there is some information as to Mr. Bubits' designs etc. I am curious as to what his actual contributions were to the Glock design. Did he design the thing from the ground up, or just some of the features. One website says he was responsible for the Gen 3 design i.e...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    So I read the article. Good review, but reviewer mentioned (I'm paraphrasintg) the slide not going into battery if you didn't let it ride itself under its own power. Also something about those who press check will have issues? I think I get what the reviewer was saying, but any owners know...
  4. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Fluid Film (whats that?) (no is not an ad) (made this shorter for everyone so it doesn't suck as bad to read) Rust sucks. So does corrosion. Lets stop it. The problem with preventative measures is that they are generally petroleum based or have some sort of solvent in them, so what happens...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    I was cleaning my M9-A1 and had the slide off the frame. I dropped the frame on the floor, a 1 foot drop on the tile, not very hard, the frame landed on its side. I felt the trigger and thought it felt heavier than normal. I then pressed the trigger multiple times and thought it felt fine. I...
  6. Other Rifles
    Hi all, I took delivery of my new Steyr Scout yesterday, took it to the range today and put a few rounds through it. All well so far, but after cleaning I am unable to reinsert the bolt! It slides in until there's barely a cm left, and then stops against something. No, I didn't disassemble...
  7. Anything Else
    This looks very interesting and "i want one" !!!! Ive never considered Kel Tec a top knotch outfit but the lastest 22mag pistol, the 308 rilfe, and this new shotgun have made me a think they may be as innovative as Magpul...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    when I pull the slide back to dry fire the gun, sometimes when I pull it back the trigger does NOT reset. What should I start looking for or is this something Steyr will need to look at? :? Edited to add when the trigger will not reset, pulling the slide back again does not help. I must...
  9. Tactics and Training
    i have a theory. the reason we shoot double taps today is because officers carrying double/single guns needed to practice the transition from double action to single action. no point firing 3 or 5 rounds. just two to complete the transition. what's the point? everybody in handguns...
  10. The Pub
    Well it happened again! Early last October a fight took place within the large apartment complex I live in between two men who were visiting some stripper's apartment. One of the men pulled a pistol on the other, a struggle took place, and the pistol ended up discharging a round into one man's...
  11. Carry Issues
    I went to the range the other day to site in my Marlin 60 and you know I can't go to the range without taking the twins along. After getting the .22 sited in and knocking a golfball all over the place with it :D I pulled out the Steyrs. I put 100 rounds through the S9 and 50 through the S40...
  12. Tactics and Training
    Just got back from a week at Thunder Ranch in Oregon. It is still the best! Great training with no fads. Just common sense, logical, protect yourself training. Best training out there to keep you from getting killed. Clint Smith has a very direct way of laying out expectations and getting...
  13. Anything Else
    I was watching the news today, CNN I think, trying to get info on the plane over DC. I was reading the newspaper and only half paying attention when I heard a story that caught my attention. It sounded like a video game or a shooting range. I looked up a several police officers were firing on...
