What does Steyr have to say about the matter?sewerman said:i did quite a bit of back ground study on this weapon before purchase and
my m-9 has worked flawlessly since purchase.
from what i have read on this forum,
everyone that has performed the 1911 spring update has cured their extraction woes.
see the tutorials for info.
hope this helps
Sorry - I should clarify....sewerman said:if your asking if the repair is sanctioned by steyr.......this i don't know.
but there's a good article in the tutorial by IDPA steyr .
this member put 90k rounds thru his m-9 and is the one who invented the
1911 spring fix.
check the article it's very interesting
Where you charged for the repair - and was it under warranty?madecov said:Steyr does not consider this an official fix. I returned my M40A1 for extraction problems and the entire plunger and spring where replaced. Turn time was about 10 days.
