Just curious, I don't recall reading anything in my Steyr book about ammo.
I assume that since this is a Austrian made pistol that Nato spec 9mm ammo would be ok for use. How about +p or +p+ ammo. can the M9A1 take it?

I read a lot of posts about FTE issues, and a lot of suggestions that "limp Wristing may be the culprit. If this pistol was made to shoot the higher preasure Nato/european ammo could some of these issues be the result of "our" lower preasure American 9mm ammo(not enough recoil to function the slide on a consistant basis)?
Thanks.

I heard back from Jack at Steyr today. I asked about ammo for the M9A1
He stated that +P and +p+(in moderation) are fully in the design saftey perimitors. Nato and +P are very simular in presure so there is no problem there.
I also asked about sighting in the Steyr, He replyed that with a 6:00 hold and shooting +P ammo the shots should be on center. This is what a european made/ designed pistol is designed to shoot.
