I recently picked up this pistol from a forum member. It was barely used, and basically new. My first entry into the STI 1911 line. Here are some basic impressions:
Solid frame and slide fitment. No movement.
The slide has the frame's SN etched, to show the custom matched set.
Slide feels like it rides on bearings.
Frame and slide are also nicely blended at the rear, with the matching extractor and ejector.
Beavertail to frame was seemless blended.
Barrel lock up is tight.
Trigger is crisp.
Slide stop is easy to remove and install. Avoid the idiot scratch.
30lpi FSC is pretty nice and grippy.
Thumb safety snickers on/off easily. Will have to address it to make it harder to flick off.
Extractor is nicely fitted to the FPS and doesn't clock in the slide.
The blank Heine rear sight is nice, and compatible to the 10-8 that I'm used to.

Here she is.

I'm thinking about getting one but came across some comments about the flashlight not fitting right on the rail, do you have any issues with yours?

My TLR-1 took a little push to get it on there. I'm not completely happy w/ the light's fitment. But the rail adapter (not the two side clamps) can be shaved down to get a better fit into the rail slot, that runs at the bottom of the rail. I have get to do that, since I wanted to set it up for these photos.

I don't know if the 300X is any better, but I don't have one to try out.

:supergrin: Maybe. Those are actually VZ Grips' Double Diamond G10. And are pretty tactile. Wouldn't mind trying out some VZ Simonich Gunner grips on there.

Ramped or unramped? They offered them both ways, let me know how it shoots, I had a test and evaluation model that we could not get running 100% , It was a shame a very nicely fitted firearm and accurate.

ramped bull barrel. Will provide a report when she goes out to the range. :cool:
