    I just picked up my first Steyr pistol from Cabela's in Owatonna, Minnesota - an M9-A1. I actually traded my Sig P229 .40 S&W for the M9. Date code is LWR - Feb 2013, so fairly new production. I came across the Steyr after researching the Caracal and learned that they were designed by the same...

    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...

    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...

    It has been a while since I last posted and thought I would share my fantastic experience with my new M9-A1. I sold my old M9 to a friend of mine and used the money to finally get the new M9-A1 in March. I purchased it from Trellix Tactical and must say it was a pleasure doing business with...

    Happy Memorial Day! I'm having a dis-assembly problem with my M40 handgun while trying to remove the sub frame from the polymer grip. I can't get the manual safety engagement pin to come out. I've followed the online sub frame removal tutorial to the letter I believe and still can't get it to...

    Hi! Today I want to share a simple homemade mag release extension that I did recently. After starting shooting in IPSC, I have noticed that I need to adjust a grip to drop the mag. I looked into different possibilities to extend the mag release button. Results are shown on photos below. I have...

    Hi all, After being shot briefly yesterday by my Pastor (who loved the gun, by the way), my S40-A1 has started to make a strange rattling noise when I tilt the gun up or down. It also feels as if something is sliding around in the slide. I immediately unloaded the gun and took it apart to...

    Hello, this is my first post. The other day I was able to do a bit of horse trading and walked away with a Steyr M40A1 with three mags and a box of hollowpoints. I've only got serious time behind Glock 9mms (my first pistols, and what I carry currently), but I knew of Steyrs, had heard good...

    Greetings, Purchased a M40-A1 last February, and finally made it to the range yesterday. Was a bit hesitant on purchasing this pistol because of problems fully explored on this forum. Happy, and relieved to report that the pistol functioned perfectly. Only had time to fire about 50 rounds (I...

    Installing the 2 part Delrin bushing, I slightly folded one of halves. I got the bushing half straightened back out and then intalled it on the striker. The gun seems to be working fine. Is this going to be ok?

    Hi there, I have some trouble with all my 5 mags. They tend to get a coat of rust after 2 or 3 days before cleaning them. It is kind of annoying having to clean them so often. I have tried from Hoppes 9 to Frog lube to Seal 1 and it is the same with everything. Any advice?? Thanks in...

    So, I tried to cook today. This, as usual, filled the house with a fine haze of smoke, which isn't a good sign for my culinary skills, bit does make for awesome photo-ops with my Steyr C9A1 with Viridian, since the laser is very clearly visible. I just hope the downstairs neighbors don't call...

    So here I am on the range today... After some training, I proudly produce my brand new M9-A1 and hand it to my partner (Former Marine sniper, firearms expert extraordinaire). He smugly grips the pistol, a slight smile was detected on his face as I watched him enjoy the ergonomics and feel of...

    Can Steyr C9-A1 swap slides with S40-A1? Since the C9 is a S9 with a larger magazine grip can it swap slides? I know the S9 and S40 can swap and M9 and M40 can swap. There doesn't seem to be a swap for the C9. Is there one coming maybe?

    Why Did it Have to be ... Guns? by L. Neil Smith [email protected] Over the past 30 years, I've been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I've thought about the issue a lot, and it...

    Hi, Can anyone suggest whom should I contact in EU in order to get some parts for M9-A1. During my second IPSC match I had 2 failures to eject with following double feeds. I already ordered 1911 plunger spring from Brownells all the way from US. Now from some threads on the forum I see, that...
