  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has done the trigger cleanup tutorial or any of the others, and if so what result did you get? Was your gun better and still reliable??

    Up to date range reports for PW M9 A1- 600 rnds thru. Installed Delrin bushing around 200 rnds w/ stock striker spring. Thanks BT. Learned how to improve my grip ( yeah, now I got a grip). Thanks IDPA Steyr. NO more fte's or ftf's. NO more reset issues. Using 115gr fmj- Federal Champion, WWB...

  4. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Having had the striker pin smear like most of you, I was trying to think why. How does the striker pin cause the smear? The obvious answer is that it is sticking out when the case starts moving. When does the case start moving? It starts moving when the case impacts the ejector. If the...

    Happy Easter folks. Spent mine at the range, however, developed a slight problem with my M40-A1 (roll pin version). Planning on contacting Jeff at SAI tomorrow, however, wanted to see if anyone had run across the same issue and know of a quick way to fix it. Basically, when I pull the...

    Hi, Anyone on here figure out a good replacement for the stock Steyr striker spring? It seems to me that the spring is way too long and binds as the trigger is pulled. I would like to find a replacement of the same required weight - but in a shorter package. I know about the springs that Big...

    Is there any aftermarket recoil reducing springs for the S40-A1? I looked online but could not find any
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    Picked up my M9-A1 PW Arms last week and was finally able to get out to the range today with it. I took 200 rounds of WWB with me. I had an M40 a few years back and sold it to buy a USP. That was before I realized I needed or as I'm told by the boss woman, wanted more than one handgun at a time...

    I have the BT Delrin caps on their way to me, but looking over the tutorials and such, I cannot locate any instructions on how to remove the striker spring so that I can install these. Please help me find what I am missing!!

    So.....I work at a gun store and had a customer bring in a beautiful and interesting pistol which i had never actually seen before the other day (the m40 a1) and absolutely loved it and the trapezoid sights and could not stop thinking about it and reading about it so I finally just ordered one...

    Hi! I can't believe I've never seen this forum before. Being in IT, I'm online all the time & am a member of several forums (cars, guns, guy stuff, etc...). I'm an old school Steyr M40 owner & have used this weapon as my primary carry piece since early 2000. I've only recently looked into...

    Hey all. New member here just stopping by to say hello. I also picked up a new m40 for myself and a s40 for my wife. The reason I joined here really. We have put about 150 rounds each through each with no problems and love them. My question is what kind of modifications are out there and which...
  13. Caracal C and F Series
    I acquired a Caracal F about a year ago when they were first released (reviewed here). I was so impressed by the fullsize that I decided to acquire a compact to compliment it, with the hope of replacing my Steyr M9A1 CCW with a Caracal C. I bought a Caracal C a few weeks ago, and thus far it...

  16. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I got my new Steyr, serial 302xxx, Date Code LWW, and I was having problems with the trigger not resetting, both in dry fire and in live fire. I downloaded and followed Bigtaco's guides for correcting it, and it looks like it needed the polish job to smooth it all out. Thus far, the reset...

    Hello, I am new to the forum, having recently bought my father a Steyr M9. We both like the gun, but he refuses to keep it loaded in condition 1 due to the light trigger weight. The gun is stored in a holster that covers the trigger, but he just doesnt trust it. As a single action semi guy I...

    Hi all out there. I'm not really new to this forum, up to now I was just lurking. And enjoyed all the BT's tutorials and info, so as to have already done almost all mods to my 2 months old M9-A1. But yesterday I went to the Steyr representative shop (in Montevideo, Uruguay) to ask for a...

    I've seen that a lot of people have had trouble removing the factory Steyr sights, so I thought I would share the method I've been using to remove them. They are extremely tight, but it can be done. *** Disclaimer: DO NOT attempt this unless you have the correct tools and a fair knowledge of...

    I am sure this has been discussed before but I was I couldnt find it through my searches. I live in NJ and hollowpoints are not on the table. I have been using American Eagle and Champions 180 gr. but I have been having trouble with misfires/no fires with both. I am new to shooting and was...
