  1. M, C, L and S Series
    So I am still waiting for my Steyr Ma1 40S&W to show up... but it should be here by V-day just in time to impress the wifey.. I mean sneak it into my gun safe without her noticing. So my evil Twin has all of our Steyr goods and received all of the BT's goodies I purchased. So anyhow according...
  2. Forum Issues
    When I go to pick up my new piece from the gun shop are there any opinions about firing it then and there out of the box? I don't want to find out there is a problem after I get home. Should I just use snap caps at the gun shop? Should I fully clean and lubricate it myself at home first before...

    I recently purchased a M40-A1. I had a choice of either the M40 or the M40-A1. I went with the A1 because it was newer and held 12 rounds. I thought all A1's were made after 2010 but after reading on this forum I am finding out that this is not true. Is there a place to look up my serial # and...
  4. The Soap Box
    It's not a Glock, it's a Steyr. It doesn't have a thumb safety and as far as I am concerned that where the similarities end. The sights, the fit, and the feel are not at all the same. These same people that go on to insist that Steyrs are Glocks tend to go on to say a lot of other stoopid things...

    Hi. New lurker on the forum. My searching in the forum and out in the www are leaving me empty so i have to ask ... Where can I Buy a New Steyr M9-A1 that is in stock? I can find a lot of S9s and those in 40 as well but not that one, other than a few used ones that are either old or Grey it...

    It's 2306 here in Kabul and I think I'm ready to by my first handgun sight unseen, a S-A1 in 40. Maybe it's the Sig P229 on my hip that is just like my Sig back home, but I've come to the realization I just don't like the heavy DA trigger. With a Glock and a Kahr PM9, a Steyr in 40 seems to...

    I'll get some video up on this as well. I'll have to get the lighting setup just right with the camera to pick up the black. So, what we've talked about in a few threads here is when you rack the gun to make it live, set the striker/trigger, there is a slight wobble you can have front and back...

    My M9A1 has a little hitch before it snaps into battery if you run the slide really slow. Sometimes it doesn't snap fully into battery when run this way and you have to push it home. Feels like it might be something in the trigger group/fire controls. Advice?
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    This is my first post so I'll make it simple and sweet. I have an M40-A1 I took it on a partial trade (at a value of $200 which is why I said yes in the first place), anyway, while looking it over I did the pencil test, wooden pencil, eraser down the barrel to test the firing pin. The pencil...

    So while training today I ended up with a round in the chamber and a stuck slide. I can remove the slide from the weapon and still cannot get it out. No one I was with had even seen anything like that before. Looks like I need to take it to a gunsmith this week. Hopefully my baby will be...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    hello everybody, after a long wait we finally got our new old M-9 out of the military depot in the domenican republic. it had the slightest corrosion and came with one 10-round magazine,which should be sufficient for self-defence. luckily some soldier sold us 100 rounds of aguilla 124grain luger...

    I hope everyone is well. I just purchased a new S9-A1 from a local dealer and from what I can tell, the serial number does not fall into the recall and, I believe, was manufactured in 2011 (VWO). I am just looking for any tips anyone can forward along that will help me get more acquainted to my...

    I realize this is in the Steyr section and theres a reason , I always wanted a Stery but could never find any , that usually means one of two things , they are so damned nice that people buy them and never resell them or they suck, I doubt the latter is true and possibly the factory just makes...

    I received a package from BT's today with the striker spring and cup set. The parts installed very easily and really improved the trigger. Notable improvement in the weight and smoothness of the trigger. Also, I polished the outside of the striker itself and this helped even more. All-in-all I...

    Just got my first generation Steyr m9-a1 and love it. Hard to believe that this gun isn't more popular except for the fact that there is no real advertisement. I live in northeast Georgia and consider myself a moderately certifiable gun-nut. I've used all major brands of guns and love this one...

    So I noticed that cabela's has M9-A1's for around 400, but it seems they are all gray market. That said one of my LGS is a regular dealer for steyr but doesn't stock them. Do we have access to white market new manufacture M9-A1's?

    So I was lamenting last week my fears of a non Shooter, my fears were . . . . Put well to rest. Its model run is "LOH" It shot amazing, Ran both Winchester 115 and American Eagle 115 through with out a hitch, I was instantly working well with the sights (not sure if its because I learned...

  19. Caracal C and F Series
    Got it from Centerfire systems for 399.99 shipped. I'm really impress with them, got my gun two days after making payment. I was a little concern about the slide movement during trigger break on a sample at gun show; however, my Caracal C and a buddy Caracal F from Centerfire are rock solid, no...

    http://youtu.be/6CvyyZK8WkE Sorry to bother you all guys. But this Trigger issue just came to me a week ago. It seems like trigger resetting issue but I'm not sure is it the same or not. It happened like the firing pin wasn't cocked but it did cock. The trigger just being pulled through...
