    Is it true the the new A1 pistols have an upgraded trigger and that we can send ours in for a change?

    That's new to me. You may be thinking of the upgrade they did from the first run of the orginal series.

    Trigger on my M and my A1 are the same.

    I find the trigger pull of my M9 a bit hard... is it because it still new? Would it improve after break in? After how many rounds will the trigger improve or am I stock with it? Need to know... thanks.

    Early triggers where in the 8 pound range. later are in the 5-6 pound range.
    If you look at your trigger you will see a pin. If the pin is in the top 1/3 of the trigger it is the old one. If it is below the halfway point it is the new one.

    Dry firing the M9

    I guess mine has the upgraded trigger. It is the 5 lbs pull that I wish is lighter.... :cry: well that is to compare to an enhanced 1911 that I've tried, it has a resistance that any small kid can handle.

    I guess the pro on the Steyr trigger 5lbs pull is that it is safer for carry and will definitely qualify for IDPA. The 1911 with an enhanced trigger system, on my opinion is only good for speed shooting competitions, wont carry it for self-defense!

    I just need to perhaps practice with the M9 more to get use to the 5lbs trigger pull. BTW, I dont carry pistols that is why I was wishing that it could be lighter.

    Somebody told me that it will improve with dry firing. Wouldnt dry firing hurt the M9?

    Dry firing must be an ongoing controversy...I don't think most modern handguns will be hurt from dry firing.... I've heard Sig does not recommend it....but a glock or steyr should be OK........but as sure as I'm writing this, someone will come back with the opposite advise. :lol:

    I hope "the myth buster" will consider the dry-firing a subject! :wink: anyone? :D

    What's will be damaged with dry-firing? I just heard it though but not pretty sure which part will be affected, or are there any? Why true to sig and not to Steyr or gock? LOL!

    What I can recall, as I was told sometime ago, was that it will damage the firing pin, will FTF!? :?: but those were in the 1911s discussions when I was still using one.

    can't speak for sigs. but a friend of mine who is all sig all the way thoroughly recomends dry firing. so i have to assume he does it with his sig.

    but steyrs wear IN not out. the only reason my buddy's trigger feels better than mine is beause he's dry fired it thousands and thousands of times.

    you won't hurt anything dry firing a steyr. i do it to mine all the time. and it's still going great.

    it'll help polish the parts where they make contact and make your trigger movement smoother by cutting down on friction.

    I was told dry firing a modern centerfire pistol is not a problem. Older guns and rim fire can apparently damage the firing pin. If you are really concerned you can spend a buck or two on "snap caps" (plastic rounds with metal/spring loaded primers).

    NO DAO pistol will EVER match a SAO trigger of any kind. Nothing should ever compare to a properly "worked" 1911 trigger.
    try dry firing a steyr next to a stock glock (though they can be worked down to 3#) and you'll see how much better it is.

    Boy, I agree with the Chef.....nothing will ever come really close to the 1911 for anything !!!!!!! I think every red blooded american male should get a 1911 as a right of passage !!!!!! I'm dumping all of my double/single handguns for the single action/glock type triggers....too difficult to switch between the two and shoot well........I think that HK now has what they call "Combat Action" trigger......I think that is a Glock like (or should I say Steyr like :lol: ) trigger system..

    Speaking of Steyr triggers, does anyone know ways of working on the Steyr triggers??? I do Glock triggers routinely and smooth them out nicely.........but I'm not sure of the Steyr's......my M40 is a little rough, but my M9 is just right........

    bigtaco is the steyr trigger expert here. he can tell you exactly what parts/pieces to polish and how much, etc.

    I'm not that comfortable w/ my WECSOG certificate to try it. I can replace parts as they are modular assemblies but I'll wait for steyr to offer factory performance trigger jobs.

    I looked thru many photos in the gallery and most are like mine. Is mine the early or late type? It's not exactly 1/3 up, and not below the half way point.

    that trigger looks pretty much where mine is on both 9 and 40.....I contacted Steyr about the trigger and they told me that the triggers that needed work were the older ones and if i bought one recently it was probably already fixed at the factory.....the manufacture on mine is 2002.....and they are fine.....check your date of manufacture.....

    Take the slide off and a small dial with an arrow will point to the year the gun was made. It is toward the front of the pistol where the guide rod sits............sorry, haven't had my coffee yet....this is poor guide instructions, but you'll find it......get a magifying glass.....
