Stripped a steyr M9-a1 at the gunstore yesterday, beautifully made internals. I noticed several things that concern me though...

1. Instinctively, the pistol points high for me using a snap sight picture.
Does the original M9 tend to point lower than the A1 series?
Sort of liken the difference to arched vs flat mainspring housing on 1911?

Snap sight: Front sight is slightly high, directly above the trapezoid.

2. Front of slide moves down, then up when pressed. (Pressure is applied to front sight with thumb) is this a concern, should I pass on this individual weapon?


Regards
Billy

There is no difference between the way the way the M and the A1 point.

The movement you describe is normal for any polymer gun and many steel guns.

Some may have more play than others. The play in slide to frame fit does not affect accuracy

Thanks Madecov, I have never owned a polymer pistol before and am considering the Steyr over the Glock, HK, walther and S&W.

I really like the Steyr, t's modular construction and quality.
