Howdy folks, new to the club and new to Steyr as a whole. I just picked up an M40 safe queen on Friday for the paltry sum of $260. It's an early production (I'm assuming by the SN 005571), and had a hundred rounds thru it before it was put away. I will be calling Steyr tomorrow to see if there are any upgraded bits and shits available, from what I've read on here they changed the trigger and the ejector or extractor (can't remember). Hopefully they can verify for me and would be willing to modernize my new friend. I bought this to use for shooting Limited Major in my local USPSA matches. I've contacted my gurus and they can machine a custom mag well for me, lighten the slide, and extend the mag release. I figure that with these enhancements, plus the recommendations from some guy named Big Taco, and a few Sigma hi-cap mags, I might just have myself a pretty solid, if not unique competition gun. I've been shooting my XD45 with okay results with only a trigger job and extended mags so I'm pretty sure this will be an improvement. Please feel free to add your infinite wisdom to my plan, and if you have any holster recommendations I would greatly appreciate it. Blade Tech has one listed for the M40 and if anyone has experience with this I would love to hear about it. BTW, shot 150 rnds this afternoon and had three FTE's using Fiocchi FMJTC 170 gr. Not sure if there are any factory improvements that address this issue. Kind of a pain to clear. I also found the trigger to be notchy, almost like the safety was binding up. I want this gun to be smooth, reliable, and accurate..... Hmmmm, now where have I heard that before???? Hell, it's already sexy so thats a start!!!
