  1. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hello all, I’ve been lurking around for a while and have seen several variations of what I’m about to ask but with no concrete answers. I have a Steyr C9-A1 that’s marked Trussville, AL. This gun started out alright but soon began to eject erratically. After about 50 rounds it absolutely locked...
  2. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Got one of the original M357-A1's. Love the gun. Problem: With the gun completely assembled, including a mag, and uncocked, the slide can be pulled back about 1/2" then it locks. A SLIGHT pull on the trigger gives a audible "click" and the slide releases and functions normally. What's going...
  3. Anything Else
    ...and thinking of listening to my inner Scottish heritage voice. Found this and think my Steyr M9 would look awfully nice in it (as well as my legs)! Comes with a custom holster for your firearm. http://www.etsy.com/listing/80167563/trinity-tactical-kilt-shown-in-black?ref=shop_home_feat

    Not sure where to put this so; I was just curious is anyone would be interested in swapping their Lx-A1 for my M9-A1???
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    I am stuck with only 10 rd .357 mags for my M357 that I have had and love and I can only seem to find M40 mags. Will they work in M357 without issue or madification? Where is a good place to find M357 mags and if M40 will work where is a good place for those. I want to snag three before the...
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi there, I sent my '05 M40-A1 into Steyr to have them fix the trigger safety not resetting all the time. I also mentioned that I sometimes have brass hit me on top of the head when firing it. They fixed the safety and replaced the extractor and ejector and sent it back to me. They were very...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    Just picked up my M9A1 today and have some questions. 1. When I release the mag catch lever the slide comes forward and hits the mag, becoming stuck. When I hit mag lever down with some force(like some people do to load their pistols) the slide did finally go forward, but this isn't something I...
  8. Ask Bubits
    Mr. Bubits Can you give me some information about this gun? Here is a brief description...On the slide, it says Austria, a serial number, GOK Steyr Mannlicher..on the other side is says Steyr S9 9x19. Just some informative information would be very helpful. Also, what is a good round to shoot...
  9. M, C, L and S Series
    I braved the cold today with my grandpa to go do some shooting. We were both using 9mm - I had my Steyr C9A1, and he had a Sig P250 compact. We stuck my Viridian C5L on the bottom of his gun, though even the green laser was a bit difficult to see on the snow in the bright daylight...
  10. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Looks like my new S40 is hit with the trigger reset bug. Have checked out Big Taco's trigger reset tutorial. However, before I continue, let me run my scenario out to the club. Picked it up Friday as it came in that day. So once I got to the FFL/range, I took it like a little kid at...
  11. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Hi, I am having a problem with my 2002 S40. AfterI fire a live round, it seems not to go into full battery lock-up, the firing pin makes contact with the primer but not with enough force to fire the second round. If I tap the rear of the slide it then fires fine. Can anyone please tell me what...
  12. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    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...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    An amigo is trying to sell me a M357 lately and Im starting to warm up to the idea but. I don't know any thing about them. I need a quick course of pointers of what to look for on these guns. Good years bad years(probably in ser#s)changes or options ?Problamatic for handloading ? A must for me...
  14. M, C, L and S Series
    First off, thanks to ThorInc for inspiring me to finally... bite the bullet? Drop the hammer? Or some other appropriate saying meaning "to stop being a wuss and just buy a damn Steyr." :) I'd been following the M9 for many moons and decided that when I finally got my firearms license, it was...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Hey folks. My first Steyr finally arrived today after months of deliberation and sourcing. Anyway. After compiling the good/bad/ugly ammo chart, blazer brass FMJ seems like a pretty reliable choice. Where I'm stuck is on which grain would run most reliably. I can get a box of 1000 124g for $240...
  16. Other Rifles
    Hi. Steyr Club newbie here. I am trying to figure out how to sight in my 1995 Steyr SSG PIIK. It came with a Hensoldt Wetzlar ZF 500 scope, which is a scope that I think is fairly commonly seen on these types of Steyrs. Currently, the rifle shoots about 8 inches high at 100 yards (i.e...
  17. Carry Issues
    Does anyone carry the S9-A1 or S40-A1 daily?
  18. M, C, L and S Series
    A few years back I shot an acquaintance's M9 and I loved it. I was on the lookout for an m9/m9a1 ever sense. Found an individual selling one this last weekend and so I bought it. Guess I got a lemon. Took it shooting today and it failed to feed nearly every round. I checked both magazines and...
  19. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi guys, Hopefully you can point me in the right direction to resolving this. I (finally) shot some Ranger JHP through the M40 and I'm a bit upset. This is supposed to be my "go to" gun and home defense weapon, but I can't put more than 2 rounds down without a failure to feed. Seems that the...

    Does anyone have a source for preban 30rd AUG mag's?? I'm stuck here in NY state. Thanks
