Mr. Bubits
Can you give me some information about this gun? Here is a brief description...On the slide, it says Austria, a serial number, GOK Steyr Mannlicher..on the other side is says Steyr S9 9x19. Just some informative information would be very helpful. Also, what is a good round to shoot with this particular gun?

Thanks!

Frankie,

Your weapon was made in July of 2002 based on the GOK date code. On this site you can search for Steyr Date Code. If there is no SteyrArms stamp then it was imported by some individual. Possibly a US soldier.

Stay away from Blazer aluminum cased ammo, UMC, S&B. Winchester white box WBB is used by a lot of people. Federal American Eagle, Hornady, Buffalo Bore, and others apparently work well. YMMV.

I would recommend you do a complete detail strip of the weapon and let the parts soak in mineral spirits for about 20 min. Then carefully dry each one and make sure there is no cosmoline left on them. Next carefully polish the trigger bar and function module where they touch. When you reassemble the sear and post, make sure the rounded ends of the pins are to the left side, and make sure they don't stick out to rub on the trigger bar. When you put the extractor back in, use a 1 gal. ziploc bag or equivalent to catch parts if they fly.

ETH77,
Thank you for all that information..When you say Steyr Arms stamp, are you talking about the indentation, rectangular in shape with some writing? looks like some kind of engraving in the rectangular box. I really appreciate the detailed information. Considering the year the gun was manufactured, should I anticipate any problems? I have seen some stuff online about cartridge ejection with some of the other models. After firing, the casing gets stuck and does not eject from the gun. Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks!

I am new also. So, I probably does not have too much experience.
What I did was just visiting the different section and start reading the sticky thread.
Some are useful and you need to know now and some you don't.

On the menu, there is a link to "DOWNLOAD" section.
You can download a few direction on how to dissassemble, clean and lube the gun, etc.
That information are awesome and you probably want to download and store it in your local directory.
If I were you, I would read that document over and over again until I understand it.

There are a lot of information in existence that will answer most of your basic question.
