Received my new M9 very quickly from Brian (thanks!) at CDNN. Here's the sequence of subsequent events: 1. Field stripped and cleaned the M9 with M-Pro7. Overall it was very clean to begin with and had just a trace of carbon inside the slide. 2. Removed and cleaned the extractor, pin and spring. Although the group was very clean, I found that the action of the extractor, when re-assembled, was very "rough", not at all as smooth as I expected. 3. Lubricated everything liberally with M-Pro7 Gun Oil. 4. Fired about 100 rounds at the range, a mix of WWB 115gr FMJs and WWB 147gr JHPs, with zero problems. 5. Would have stayed longer but my wife was giving me the "it's-time-to-go-to-dinner" look. 6. I was firing the Steyr against my Beretta 96, and the Steyr was, by far, easier to keep on target. Some muzzle flip but considerbly less that the 40cal. 7. My impression was that the 9mm 147gr cartridges were a smidge less "sharp" in recoil than the 115gr variety, but it was a first impression only, and was colored by the excitement of a new pistol. 8. When I disassemble the Steyr for cleaning, I was surprized to find a very very small "nick" on the side of the extractor pin that I hadn't noticed prior to firing. I smothed in down a bit with 3000 grade sandpaper and I'm hoping that it doesn't indicate a problem. 9. Overall, I was very pleased with the pistol, and hope that my excellent experience continues. 10. Thanks for all your help!!
