I bought the S9 Steyr a few years ago before management change and it was discontinued. It has always had a slight firing pin indention along with a full srike hole with firing pin wipe and some primer bulge (a nice donut ring around the firing pin hole). I have about 500 rounds through this pistol and am now getting more pronounced primer bulge around the main firing pin hole which is irregular and flattened, the slight primary stike I mentioned before is still evident. This occurred with Remington (L9MM3) and Speer Gold dot that I recently practiced with and when the same ammo was used in a "1911" there was no indication of any problem. A gunsmith told me that he thought that the Steyr was unlocking too early and that the condition was getting worse as the recoil spring gets weaker. Due to the age and discontinuance of this pistol I don't expect any sort of factory service but I would like to find a gunsmith that is familiar with the S9 that can correct this problem. At the least, I would like to find a heavier firing pin and recoil spring and see if it helps. Any advice would be helpful. Oh yes, is it possible to replace the old style trigger asswmbly with the upgraded model?
