    I purchased a pre-owned M40-A1. The first 2 mags I went through were a nightmare. After the pistol fired, the trigger would not be able to be pulled again to fire another round. I would pull the trigger and there was no click. I would then have to slightly pull back on the slide and release in...
  2. New Member Check-In
    A few years ago I decided to do some shooting again. It had been more than twenty years since I had done any pistol shooting and I took my nearly new, Smith & Wesson wheel gun to the range and spent some quality time throwing .38 caliber at targets. Nice. Then I began to wonder about...

    I also noticed that the strike was more off center then I would have imagined. Other than that the pistol has fired flawlessly. NOT that I believe it did but COULD the BT striker cups have aided or caused the light primer strike?

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    I just finished up doing a little work on my M9-A1, trying to deal with the slide clicking, out of battery issue, and found something interesting. I also have issue with rapping, not slamming, or hitting hard, the mag base plate when the pistol is cocked, and the slide backs out of battery. I...

    Hi all, After being shot briefly yesterday by my Pastor (who loved the gun, by the way), my S40-A1 has started to make a strange rattling noise when I tilt the gun up or down. It also feels as if something is sliding around in the slide. I immediately unloaded the gun and took it apart to...

    Recently purchased a Steyr M9A1 new, have put around 200 rounds through it so far so I am not sure if this could be a break in issue. What is happening is when I have an empty magazine in my M9 and have the slide locked back, if press the slide release it will only move forward slightly and...

    Installing the 2 part Delrin bushing, I slightly folded one of halves. I got the bushing half straightened back out and then intalled it on the striker. The gun seems to be working fine. Is this going to be ok?

    on the inside of the frame and complete trigger assembly. I know it is also a degreaser. After the full cleaning where will I re lubricate within the frame and trigger assembly?

    Look what I found while performing maintenance on the slide, I hope I can get it replaced.

    Use only non-linting materials to clean the striker or firing pin channel in actually any weapon. Lint can cause light strikes by itself, and with dirt, it can really muck things up. Coffee filters or Chem-X filters are non-woven materials which will clean well and not leave fibers behind. Cut...

    I will be honest I was concerned about getting another 40 S&W after my Glock but someone local had an S40 for sale at a great price and I decided to jump on it. The trip to the range I kept going over about how my Glock felt with the 40 and was wondering even before I shot it if I had made a...

    I bought an S40 yesterday and like my brand new S9 it is having the battery click issues. I saw someone had posted the video of polishing up the firing pin where it rolls over the roll pin, to a point I do believe that this has SOME to do with the issue. I believe the REAL issue is the firing...

    s9-a1 brass gouging Just got my s9-a1 NIB and i noticed cycling rounds that they are being scarred heavily by the rail underneath the slide. anyone else have this issue? the brass has 2 parrellel scrapes running down from base to mouth, and it goes pretty deep too. very troublesome, haven't...

    Can the S9 hold more rounds than 10? The M9 and C9 can hold 17 rds, but they only appear to be 3/4 of an inch longer for grip length than the S9, does Steyr plan on making a higher round count magazine? Looking at my S9's magazine it almost looks like 1/2 of the mag is not being utilized. The...
