    Hi all,

    First time poster, first time M40 owner. I bought my M40 from a friend who was unable to provide the small key for the key lock mechanism which child proofs the firearm.

    Anyone know where I can obtain this item or can I fashion one myself.

    Thanks to all in advance.

    fairly easy to fashion with a grinder of some sort or dremel.

    flathead screw driver or some metal stock you can find.

    do you have the original box?
    often the key is hidden in the foam inside the factory box.
    small invisible cut in the foam is where the key tends to reside.

    its also possible to get a padlock and lock the box. atleast the old boxes.

    Call Steyr Arms at 770-888-4201 ... I'm sure they can set you up with one.

    M40 Key

    If you can't get a key from Steyr, let me know and I'll see if I can make you a couple. I can use mine as a template for yours. If you can't wait, I'll scan my keys to scale and email them to you. If you choose the later, PM me with your contact info.

    Good Luck,
