  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...

    Greetings from smokey Colorado. After trying out a friends Steyr, I found and purchased a used M9-A1 at the gun show this past January as my first ever handgun. I love the gun, but I have had numerous extraction failures. It seemed to be mostly linked to the remanufactured bulk ammo I had...

    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...

    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...

    Need guidance on cleaning the firing pin channel. Hi All, Can someone direct me in the right direction on how to clean (disassembly and reassembly) the firing pin channel for the M9A1? I figure it's time for a thorough cleaning. Thanks.... Jubal

    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. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I bought an S40 yesterday and like my brand new S9 it is having the battery click issues. I saw someone had posted the video of polishing up the firing pin where it rolls over the roll pin, to a point I do believe that this has SOME to do with the issue. I believe the REAL issue is the firing...

    Newby here, have a little bit of an issue. Cleaning my new M9, disassemble the extractor following the tutorial. When trying to put it back, it won't go in properly. The head where the spring attach to is rounded as compare to the flat/bevel from the tutorial. So every time, it is closed...

    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...

    I apologize if this is a repetitive post, I just could not find what I was looking for. I recently purchased a M9-A1. I had several failure to ejects with the first 100 rounds I shot at the range. I talk to Steyr and Jeff sent me new extractor and pin. My question is, does anyone have...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, as of yesterday I am the proud owner of a M9 - A1 (i think). Bought the gun used, but according to the owner it has only been fired 100 times. The condition of the gun supports said claim, as the finish is immaculate and there is 0 wear on all 3 mags. Took it to the range...

    Okay here's my Steyr S40 A1 journey. My children ordered a Steyr S40 A1 for Christmas for me on December 21st (What great kids!) It finally arrived on January 23rd. I took to the range on the January 27th. I fired 75 rounds of Federal range & target ammo through it without one hitch. Prior to...

    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...

    Hi everyone, I have been poking around on this forum for a bit and thought it was high time I joined. I am at a bit of a crossroads. I have a m9a1 on hold at cabelas, yes, it is the hybrid model from Imported through PW. It is on sale for $379 as noted by others here. My question is pretty...

    So after about two years of research and trips to the range trying different autos, I found the M9-A1. I took my time since this was my first gun purchase. I picked one up at Cabela's (although it's an M9-A1 the slide says M9)last week, cleaned it, and then put 100 rounds through it. I had two...

    Finally got my new M9 PW Arms (Cabelas) to the range. Using Winchester White box 115 grain Luger I got 1 FTE in 185 rounds using 3 different brand new magazines. This is also my first time shooting a plastic gun, at 10 yards I was hitting way right (about 6 inches) from bullseye. Thought it was...

    I don't know how many of you watch your own video's, but it's painful for me to watch some of mine, and this might be one of them. It's a bunch of clips edited together from my tear down and re-assembly. I spent time tinkering and studying parts. This isn't a public video, so I need to see if...
