strikes

  1. M, C, L and S Series
    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...

    Here's the set-up. Steyr M357-A1, excellent condition. Functions 100% in every way - but one. Georgia Arms Canned Heat factory reloaded .357 SIG FMJ ammo. When fired, somewhere through a magazine, the gun will begin producing light primer strikes to the point it will not fire. Gun field...
  3. Other Handguns
    I have a nonworking GB that is in otherwise good condition. It has bad hammer springs that were causing light primer strikes. My gunsmith has pulled the springs out, and tried to find then make some, but had no luck. I do have the original springs that came out of it, but they are not installed...
  4. Other Handguns
    I am going to be putting my GB on Gunbroker. My hands are just a little bit too small for it, but it is a sweet gun. No box, but I have three mags. In the meantime, I have a few spare parts: Qty: 1 Firing Pin Qty: 1 Firing Pin Return Spring Qty: 1 Decocker Spring Qty: 1 Trigger Spring...

    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...

    Got a couple of hundred rounds downrange w/ a new c9a1. Seems like a well made gun. Unfortunately I've had a small problem w/ light firing pin strikes. I'm hoping this might be a break in issue as I had 5-6 light strikes the first 100 rounds or so but only one today. I'm using reloads w/ S+b...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    I am very very interested in purchasing a Steyr handgun or an M&P. I have some questions and hope you can offer me your advice/help. I currently own 3 XD's. 2 service models a 45 and a 9. My other one is a tactical model 40 S&W. I am interested in a 40S&W. However which model would I or...
  8. 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...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey guys this is my first post here at steyrclub i am wondering if somebody can share some insight into some problems my new m40 has. I used to own a m40-a1 about six years ago but I had to sell it a few years back. It was the most reliable semi auto pistol I have owned with absolutely no...

    Hi from Texas. Took the M40 out back yesterday and I am impressed! (Like sampling a fine wine for the first time)

    Anyone has Experience with M40 ? please chair with me .
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm looking at the S9-A1 to replace my PF9. On the PF9 the slide stop is a stop only and can not be used to release the slide once a new mag is inserted. Does the slide stop on the S9-A1 operate as a release or does it work like the PF9?

    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...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    I recently picked up a used m40-a1 off gbroker. During my first trip to the range I had multiple issues, but we'll see if the new parts fix it. My current question: With a full 12rd magazine, it is difficult to rack the first round. I read a similar thread, and it ended with the gun needing...

    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...

    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...

    Hi y'all (yup, we say that down here...lol). New to the board and thought I'd say hi. Prior Marine with alot of handgun experience but first time Steyr owner. I was wanting something else to satiate my range time and was looking around for something unique, well designed and had a reputation...

    Decided to try a little experiment so I took a steel Glock captured guide rod with a 13lb recoil spring (2 coils cut off) and installed it in my Steyr M9. Since the guide rod was for a 5" slide it stuck out quite a bit. Bottom line: although the Glock guide rod head is smaller and the rod is...

    So my wifes new (old) S&W 19-3 is at the smith getting a trigger and action job. He asked us how light we wanted to go, he does a different trigger job for defense guns than for competition guns. Basicly he said we would have to sick w/ federal or remingto ammo, or at least primered ammo (we...
