I am the individual that wrote the article, in reference to the Steyr M40 malfunctions. I forwarded an airmail letter to Steyr, as well as several e-mails. I advised Steyr of the multiple problems. I received no response to my communications. I sent an e-mail to Steyr advising them that when importation of their pistols resumed, I would file civil suit against them to recover my losses.

Within one day, I received a response via e-mail. I spoke with a representative from Steyr via phone (at their expense). I was instructed to send the pistol to Dynamit Nobel – RWS Inc. The pistol would be forwarded to Austria for replacement by Dynamit Nobel.

The pistol was sent to Dynamit Nobel on January 12, 2003. I will update this article when I receive a replacement pistol.

  1. I own both a M40 and M40A1 and have never experienced any of the malfunctions you have described in either model. I also have never fired an Blazer ammo in any weapon I have owned. The variability of the powder charges and bullet weight, primers with marked metallic debris from the anvils and cups and the cheap aluminum cases can all lead to multiple malfunctions. Probably if you had fired the Gold Dot first, the M40 would have functioned flawlessly.
