Hello folks, here is my story. I bought an M-1A 9mm a few months ago. So far I have fired about 1000 rounds. First 50-100 was realtively smooth even with reloaded ammo. Then came the string of shells thrown at my head and jams after jams. Even when the gun was very clean. Finally had the extractor fix done. The good, love the feel and the accuracy. Much better ergonomics than any other gun I have tried so far. Turn around time was less than a week from SAI for the extractor fix. The bad, some cheap ammo and a few hundred rounds of dirt causes jam after jam even with the new extractor fix. Oh, and who do I have to kill to find some extra magazines? Are there any Glock or Berretta ones that would fit? Probably not. UMC and S&B ammo totally sucked. Magtech and CCI Brass were flawless. I think the CCI Brass 115 grain FMJ might be slightly more accurate than the Magtech. This is the ammo I'll probably use for IPSC matches. The gun is a bit big for CCW, so if I have to start carrying in a few weeks, I may get a new Stoeger 8000 or a HK USP Comp (if I can afford it). The thing is I really like most everything about my Steyr but the reliability has been very disappointing so far. I mean it got so bad that I even considered getting a Glock (shudder!).
