Hello everyone! I'm new to the club and all I can say is, I wish I had joined earlier. There is so much great info here that would have definitely helped me to avoid some interesting experiences and problems with my M9. The Steyr M9 was my very first pistol. I'm the type of person that likes to surf the net and get all the info I can on something before I buy. Especially when it is as expensive as a handgun. Almost everything I read made me believe that the M9 was the way to go. I bought mine from CDNN for $280 plus shipping and FFL transfer. Nobody could even come close to beating that. When I received it and held it in my hand, it felt like it was made for me. Not bad considering I'd never held one and didn't know whether I'd like it or not. Of course I had the normal growing pains with my M9; the brass being ejected onto my head, some FTE's, and I've even had it go full auto on me once for 2 shots. That was interesting. I attribute many of my beginning problems to break in and improper maintenance. Once I learned how to clean and lube correctly, I haven't had any problems. I've used it in an IPSC match and a steel challenge recently and it performed well. As for my setup. I have a Bianchi accumold holster that fits great. I don't remember what size, but if anybody would like to know I'll find out. I have five 10 round mags and one 14 round. All of which I ordered from CDNN. I recently put a hogue grip on it which really makes it feel rock solid in my hands. I'm wanting to do some more customization and this site has definitely given me several options. I do have some questions that maybe some can answer. I imagine they have already been answered somewhere in the forum, but I haven't been able to read all the posts yet. I've seen that the mag for the M9-A1 is advertised as a 15 rounder. I was wondering if that is actually what it holds, or are they including what could be carried in the chamber. Also, do these new ones fit the older M series pistols? I saw them for sale at on point firearms for around $20, which is cheaper that CDNN's 14 round mags for $29.99. If they are compatible, I'll be getting a couple. Well that is all for now. My collection: Steyr M9, CZ 75B, Kimber BP10, plus many more on my wish list.
