  1. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello, Does anyone know what is intended for the opening in the bottom of the grip next to the mag? I am thinking a plug or lanyard adapter goes in there but have yet to see one.
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    Ok. Im a noob to shooting and I bought as my first gun a M40 that was used but looks in great shape. I took it to the range today for the first time. I didn't get through two boxes of Federal American Eagle 180 grain 40 S&W without FIVE (5) jams. Needless to say I was pretty annoyed, and I...
  3. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello, I allready broke one firing pin, not looking forward to breaking another. what can be done to eliminate the pin drag on the primers. Is it a recoil spring issue? a striker spring issue? firing pin too long? Slide lube? This is for the M9A1 ... ive allready got an updated extractor, bt...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello, I just bought the BT guide rod, striker spring, and striker bushings. What is the trick to removing the firing pin? Is there a "special" tool for compressing the extractor spring from the slide plate. After I pop it apart, how hard is going to be to put back together? The pistol in...
  5. New Member Check-In
    Hi all, new guy from Ponte Vedra Beach Fla (just south of Jacksonville) checking in. I am the proud new owner of a S9 a1, if someone would be kind enough to bring me up to speed about my new gun I'd be much obliged, I've been going through the old messages and there is just too much to read and...
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    Brand new guy here. Looked at a M9A1 yesterday at a LGS. The sights sure do look futuristic. The pistol felt great in my hand. I've read some good reviews on the M9A1. For those of you who own one, what do you think about the sights? Trigger? Reset? One issue I had with Glocks was: the trigger...

    Hi guys. It finally happened: the dreaded BROKEN STRIKER! Why the hell does it happen? Metal Fatigue? Manufacturing defect? :wall: And yes, I use snapcaps. To make it worse. Our country was embargoed by the Austrian Government in terms of firearms export, thus makin it difficult to get parts...
  8. M, C, L and S Series
    Good Evening Everyone, I have recently noticed that my slide seems to be having some sort of.... for lack of a better term "issue" with the slide and i believe the trigger group. If i pull the slide back and let it slowly ride forward (no ammo involved) it will catch on something and not go...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    Hope this describes the problem acuately, with the hundgun in this condition: unloaded, magazine removed or empty magazine inserted, slide fully forward in what appears to be the battery position and decocked- problem is you can NOT rack the slide back. To get the slide back you must pull the...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Let me start off by saying that my inexperience and novice level will definitely show with this range report :D ... but in the interest of learning, both for the benefit of myself and other newbies, I'm hoping that useful info and answers are generated. Yep, I'm dumb and new. ;) My background...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    Percieved problem: When a round is chambered in my S9, the slide will not self-return to battery when bumped (pushed back a bit). In other words, the slide will stick out of battery when bumped, and I will need to manually push it forward. SN on slide: greater than 20,000. Purchased: CDNN...
  12. Anything Else
    Here is a picture of the new Kimber coming out. I bet I know who makes it for them...........
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Regarding the M series, why do they call it a DA trigger? I am new to steyr handguns, and love my M9 thus far, but I am curious about the trigger system. Clearly it is not a tradional DA or DAO trigger. The trigger wieght is impossibly light and short to be actually drawing the hammer/striker...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    I posted a few days ago about getting a Wolff Springs that is dimensionally the same as the stock FP spring. I order a Wolff Spring "4-10 English" and it is the closest in wire diameter and OD to stk spring (Both dimension is +.001, negliable diff.). The 4-10 English is four inches long, I...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    hello, Ive only got 300 rounds of reloads through my nice M9 with no problems at all. However the trigger is consistently inconsistent and effecting my aim on a gun I already know is accurate. Light one shot. hard the next, harder the next, some times gritty, sometimes light and slick...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    Well, I just got back from the range after shooting my brand new M9 and all I can say is OH YEAH! This is one nice shooting gun. I fired 250 rds of Blazer and Magtech with no malfunctions of any kind. The sights took a little bit to get used to, but it is hitting right on the money. I fired at...
  17. M, C, L and S Series
    Does the Steyr M series have a second-strike/DA capability? Thanks ind advance.
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    i've cane down to these 2, had xd9, 24/7, G19 eliminated now down to these 2 and leaning towards the M9. i was wondering how the 2 compared in shooting? the M9 is about $100 cheaper on CDNN (counting hi-cap mag) but i was wondering about the rails. do u need an adapter to mount a laser/light on...
  19. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I remember reading about this on the GT site, but I can't find it anymore. Do we have those instructions around here? Thanks in advance. Jeff
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    I tried to follow the directions on another thread on this site that detailed steps to remove the trigger and rails from the reciever of my M40 but I couldn't get past pressing the limited access lock button down and pulling it out. It wouldn't budge and I couldn't seem to press the button in...
