    Does Steyr have an internal lock that can be changed to use a standard handcuff key instead of the goofy 2 key prong that can be opened with 2 straight objects?

    If so how can I order this and what would this cost me?

    How hard would it be for me to change this part? I haven't seen any good take down books like the Ultimate Glock Refrence Guide

    in the tutorials section there is a detailed description of simple feild strip, removing the trigger group, disassmebly of the slide and dissassembly of the trigger group.

    replacing the key lock is a snap.

    not aware of anyone making a handcuff key lock.

    The stock key that comes with it will work fine, but I remember reading that the original M series had a different lock you could get for it somewhere.

    If they don't offer one no biggie I was just hopeing for one :)

    I'm getting pretty anxious as I know it was shipped to my FFL but have no idea where it's at.

    Luxan..

    I converted my S40 to a L.E.O. lockout.. i.e. handcuff key..
    i ordered it from Steyr USA. who is no longer a parts distributor for Steyr. The part IS available. its just a lil spring and a new plastic lock to replace the two prong one. Pretty simple install. lemme see if i can find an ACTUAL part number on my reciept for you. Since it should be in my Case for the gun with the manual. "I like to save all reciepts when it comes to guns and accesories" ill check here in a few..

    RSR will not order parts, they are a wholesale distributor. Unless you have an FFL on file with them they won't talk to you.

    Davidsons is also a wholesale distributor, they have a web site section (gallery of guns) that is geared to the consumer. I doubt you will have any luck there.


    Under the industry section there is a contact for Styer USA in Georgia. They are the ones who import all firearms and parts. If the part is available it will be through them.
