It's unfortunate because I love the size and feel of the gun. More so than my M9A1 which runs great, much better than the C9A1. My C9A1 has a manufacture date of July of 2015. Upon taking it out shooting for the first time, I noticed that the ejection pattern was very erratic when compared to my M9A1. I also experienced some failures to feed where I'd have to bump the rear of the slide to get the round chambered. I contacted Steyr and sent the top end of the gun in. They replaced the recoil spring and entire extractor assembly. I recently took the gun back out and had a lot of failures to eject. Empty brass still in the chamber while attempting to feed another round. The ejection was still just as erratic as ever. Having watched several youtube videos it appears that erratic ejection is not an abnormality but rather a feature of the smaller slide having Steyr handguns. It appears that just about all of the S9 or C9 videos I have watched show the guns throwing brass every direction including straight back, straight up, to the left of the pistol, etc.. That being said, I have given up on any attempt to get good ejection out of my C9A1. I would like to at least get the gun running right. Does this picture look right to anyone? My M9A1 is on the right while my C9A1 as sent back by Steyr is on the left. It seems the geometry of the extractor is rather goofy on the C9A1. I'm no expert but the M9A1 looks like the extractor will grip the rim of the brass while the new extractor on the C9A1 looks like it sits up rather high. I've read that some people will replace the spring inside the extractor assembly with a spring from a 1911. I'd rather not do that unless someone can say for sure that their extractor in their 9mm sits like mine in the picture above. I'm almost at the point of just throwing in the towel on this C9A1. Do you have a C9A1 or S9A1 that runs with no issues and ejects good?
