trigger pull

  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...

    I was turned onto cz from this forum and ended up buying a canik shark-c from buds in od green. I heard they are better quality than some of the cz's. Anyhow I am pleased with it and have already upgraded the springs on it trying to improve the double and single action trigger pull. Which...

    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...

    I recently came across an S9 on Armslist. I traded up for it, and all I can say is wow! I have never owned a polymer wonder, but have handled many different kinds and the Steyr feels marvelous! The ergonomics are great and the trapezoidal sight picture makes me wonder why 3 dots are the norm in...

    If it shoots as good as it looks and feels then it is a match made in heaven. The ONLY complaint (not really a complaint) I have is that I wish the sights were more visible in lower light, however I can definitely see how the fast target acquisition will be utilized with the trapezoidal sights...

    Gentlemen. I am new to Steyr ownership and so far my enthusiasm was kind of held back by some annoying trigger issues. My gun is a low round count M9-A1 that I just purchased used last weekend. I stripped Ms. Steyr's frame down to every pin, cleaned it, reassembled it and mounted it to the...

    Hello everyone,first post here. I am hoping some of you here can offer some suggestions. I stopped by Cabela's tonight and took a look at the S-A1. To make a long story short, they fit me like a glove. I was able to put both a 9mm and 40 cal on hold for 5 days while I decide what to do. I...

    So I was awoken this afternoon (worked night shift in ED last night) by my twin brother who could not stop RAVING about the Steyr Ma1 40 S&W I made him buy. He went on for minutes and said after the very first shot he was a fan and "in love." I am still waiting for mine to show up by mid...

    Hey guys, i've never owned a pistol. basically, just as a background, i wanted to get into pistols, but i had a unique problem. i have smaller hands. so, on many full size models, its very difficult for me to reach the magazine releases. This especially annoys me, because here in Hawaii, we...

    Howdy, folks. I guess I joined this forum awhile back when doing research on Steyrs. Since then, I've been looking for a used one (because I'm cheap) with no luck -- until today! I fell in love with the gun a couple years ago when I picked up one at a pawn shop and looked down the sights. I was...

    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...
  13. The Soap Box
    It's not a Glock, it's a Steyr. It doesn't have a thumb safety and as far as I am concerned that where the similarities end. The sights, the fit, and the feel are not at all the same. These same people that go on to insist that Steyrs are Glocks tend to go on to say a lot of other stoopid things...

    Hi all, So I'm new to the Steyr world. I think the designs are really neat. I've been thinking about a 40SW as with the current craziness I have a hard time finding 9mm and 45ACP but 40SW is everywhere. A local LGS has a Stey M40-A1 with SOM date code, so 2005? Gun is in good shape and comes...

    It's 2306 here in Kabul and I think I'm ready to by my first handgun sight unseen, a S-A1 in 40. Maybe it's the Sig P229 on my hip that is just like my Sig back home, but I've come to the realization I just don't like the heavy DA trigger. With a Glock and a Kahr PM9, a Steyr in 40 seems to...
  16. M, C, L and S Series
    I just picked up a Steyr M9 serial no. 7xxx. I simply love this firearm. The only problem I have is the erratic ejection and an occasional casing to the face. I've ran 110 rounds so far and it's been wwb and tulammo. Is this due to these rounds being lower power? It's ate through everything...

    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...

    I'll get some video up on this as well. I'll have to get the lighting setup just right with the camera to pick up the black. So, what we've talked about in a few threads here is when you rack the gun to make it live, set the striker/trigger, there is a slight wobble you can have front and back...

    My M9A1 has a little hitch before it snaps into battery if you run the slide really slow. Sometimes it doesn't snap fully into battery when run this way and you have to push it home. Feels like it might be something in the trigger group/fire controls. Advice?
  20. M, C, L and S Series
    So, I picked up a Steyr C9-A1 as my first real quality pistol, and after some initial issues, I'm very happy with it. The first time I took it out, I got very concerned with issues returning to battery - the slide would be just a WEE bit too far back, and I'd get a horrendous 12-15lb trigger...
