  1. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hi all, new to the forum and new to the gun arena in general. Purchased an S40 late last year and during the most recent cleaning I noticed a small fissure in the multifunctional element. I have disassembled it using the various guides posted on the site and have "reassembled" it with what I...
  2. M, C, L and S Series
    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
  3. Other Handguns
    Okay, so in the thread below, I have chronicled my S&W PPK. Now on to the other PPK (I have two). Will try to make a long story short. Got it at a pawnshop as it was advertised as a Pre-War. I memorized the serial number, went home and confirmed it was made in 1935. No problems there. Only...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    I have a M40-A1, I've put maybe a couple hundred rounds through it. I've only ever done the basic field strip as shown in the owner's manual. Right now I'm deployed to Afghanistan and they wouldn't let me take any of my own, nice guns. I have to make do with a beat up M16. But, when I get...
  5. Other Rifles
    So here is my deal. I have $900-$1350 to spend on a new AR. I want a multi purpose rifle. I am not sure what to do about piston vs DI. I am not interested in building a gun. Your thoughts are appreciated. I have been thinking: sig 516, pws mk116, stag, daniel defense and Adcor BEAR
  6. Other Handguns
    A while ago I bought a Steyr GB online and in my haste to own one of these beauties, I might have got suckered. Starting with an unloaded gun: If I lock the slide back and then release it forward, the hammer follows !! Is this a fullauto situation waiting to happen ? I have not shot it yet. If I...

    Well, I'm as happy as a pig in ****!!! Got mine at Frontier (an '08) and gave it a good cleaning before taking it out. Almost 300 rounds without a glitch. Got hit by a few casing but otherwise as anticipated. I shot very well with it and am very impressed with it's handling. I love the grip and...
  8. Other Handguns
    Hi all, I have an M9-A1 and I'm looking to get a 22 caliber semi auto for my wife to learn with. I'd like something that handles like the Steyr... :D. (j/k) Something that feels somewhat 'robust' for a 22 - any recommendations? Thanks

    My first post but I've been lurking here a little bit. I must say a THANK YOU & God Bless for the great info here! Last December I bought my Steyr M9, which worked fine for a bit & in which time I sold my Glock 19 -as the Steyr replaced it! I love the added safety forward of the trigger. It is...

    Note: I also posted a this as a "review" but the formatting of the reviews sucks ... so its going to be difficult to read there Okay this is LONG overdue, but I just have not been able to get to the range as much as I'd like. I was finally able to take this bad boy out to the range and put...

    since I shot my new M40 2 weeks ago and had not cleaned it :( Tonight after having gone to the range and shot my new Walther I had the time to clean both guns. very similar in terms of ease to take it down. I hosed the gun out using brake parts cleaner, then scrubbed the bore. I decided just...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Anyone out there with a new MA1 know if the ejection pattern is more consistent than on the earlier M/S series? I finally took a shell in the face this weekend after about 600 rounds, and I find that unacceptable. I let some friends shoot my Steyr again this weekend and one them took a shell in...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello All, Today I went to the local indoor range with a buddy from work, and we both have M40s. He was shooting WWB and got through about 25 rounds when his trigger began failing to reset. The slide felt slightly gritty when pulled back, and the trigger would not move from the rearward...

    Thanks to all who replied. Sorry for the little info about the misfire. I'm not a newcomer to the world of semiautos. I'm qualified as an expert in the US Coast Guard with the Berreta P85 and the M-16A2. I must admit though I'm not too familiar with the Steyr. Anyway I've done my fair time of...

    In order to disassemble the slide, you have to start by taking the slide cover off. To do this, push the slide plate pin fully forward(towards the barrel While holding it forward, slide the slide plate downward. This is a very similar to the way its done with a Glock. The pin in the Steyr...
