  1. Holsters
    I think it came out alright, I just need to refine the edges a little but it fits nice. I do have a question though, I need spacers to put between the belt clip and the actual holster itself, I though stacking vinyl washers or kydex strips would look ultra tacky so I am curious what yall use for...
  2. Caracal C and F Series
    After traffic slowed down a bit, it seems the sister forum for Caracal pistols has been inundated with spam bots. Going through that site is now like walking through the remains of a town that's been bombed to hell and back; to find anything useful, or even remotely recognizable, you have to...
  3. Holsters
    Finally got my Eclipse holster for my M9-A1 yesterday. I was initially disappointed with it, I thought I wanted to wear it at 3:00. That's where I would wear my nylon holster. The body side of it kinda poked into my hip meat, and the loop position made my belt stick out. (my waist is 32-34-ish)...
  4. M, C, L and S Series
    Met the venerable and amiable Jeff Reece at the show, yesterday... he remembered my last name from emails. He is just as friendly and great to be around as he sounds on the phone. I got to check out the L9-A1. The plastic frame is longer and the slide and sub-assemb. won't fit into the older...
  5. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi all, Finally got to the range with my new C9-A1. I shot 122grn fmj fp's and 115grn Fmj RN ammunition. Sights: It took me about 30 rounds to get somewhat used to the trap sights. Over all I think they will be as good as three dot..maybe better for me.. Feeding: Had one FTF in a hundred...
  6. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi guys, I'm planning on buying a new m40 a1 or the m9 a1 (haven't decided on chambering yet). But during my first look at shops in the area, they only had the s9-a1. I went to another gun shop to test the the m and am happy with the overall feel. The first shop told me that they could have it...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    Greetings, Am looking at purchasing a used S40-A1 with a Oct. 2010 production date. Have read of some minor ejection(?) problems on these pistols, and wondering if there is any significant changes/improvements on a current model over a 2010 edition. This purchase will be my first Steyr...

  9. Caracal C and F Series
    I am trying to get a Caracal from a local dealer and he has a distributor that carries the Caracal F but they are out and waiting for another shipment. Anyone have any updates on when this will occur? I read somewhere that a new batch has arrived in the states and they are waiting to pass...
  10. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi all, I thought it was time to post a review of my new Steyr S9-A1 that was originally posted on Glock Talk's Gun Club threads. http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1352008 I put it on that site thinking there's no sense preaching to the choir here, and in another day or two I'll be...
  11. Holsters
    I glanced but didn't see a previous thread asking about holsters for the newer C9-A1. I just got one, and haven't been able to find a paddle holster that will work. I know it's essentially an M frame with an S slide, but the S paddle from Fobus doesn't work. I'm in the great Commonwealth of...
  12. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    I got a wild hair and decided to see if I could cut 2 "loops" from the Steyr magazine spring and reinstall to add another round. It worked. I was wondering if anyone else has done this and has had problems or success? Any foreseeable or possible problems I might encounter? Problems with...
  13. Holsters
    Wow. Granted this is my first real holster, but the quality on this is pretty damn obvious. FIST #43 IWB/Belt slide, Left Hand, Cordovan, 1.25" loops. Should have gone with the 1.5" loops though.. all of my belts are 1.5+
  14. Maintenance / Tweaks / Technical Difficulties / So
    Greetings, I had FTE problems with my M9, so Steyr Mannlicher in Austria sent me the new kit. It had a slightly longer spring and a beveled extractor plus claw that was I believe identical to what was initially installed in the gun that I purchased from CDNN. It went fine for two range...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Hello all. I appologize in advance if I'm asking redundant questions, but the situation seems to be in flux and I would like the correct current answers. Thanks in advance. 1) What is the standard warranty on an M9 2) How is the current warranty support? Is there a US distributor/service...
  16. Industry News
    Steyr Mannlicher just cut a deal with Walmart. Look on Walmart's website and type in Steyr! Service location and Steyr USA are being moved, from what I understand. Gunsmiths are being flown to Austria for training, so that they will be familiar and able to fix both past and present models...
