New Canadian member with a 2008 M40A1. I should have known when it was on sale that there was a catch. Looks like the gun store had kept it in the back room for some time. I like everything about the gun, except the trigger. Having chosen a Steyr after reading several reviews that praised the trigger, I was disappointed to find it very gritty, with a weight of about 7 pounds on average.

The good news is that I have taken some of the measures prescribed by Big Taco and they've helped. I'm awaiting delivery of his bushings and Lee Spring to see whether they will give further relief. I haven't yet summoned up the courage to disassemble the whole trigger group, but working on the Firing Pin was no issue.

I find the trapezoidal sights really good and easy to become accustomed to - and the accuracy of the pistol, out of the box, has been great. Looking forward to learning lots more from the Club in the months ahead.

Reading up on the information posted some years ago by Big Taco, I did some work on the Firing Pin Plunger this week. I also exploited the information to remove the whole trigger housing and check it. A little bit of range time demonstrated a noticeable improvement in the trigger. Something like 500 rounds through the barrel to date - and loving it more with every shot.
