  1. 9mm Brazos Super Tuned 170

    They do have the shorter 9mm follower. You can try it out but I would not recommend it. It would be better with a 38 super follower.
  2. You will need the 0.375 x 60 degree cutter to do it right. Smaller dovetails often don't cut the entire 0.187 depth needed and if you use a smaller dovetail you will end up with a flat across the cut instead of a radius. Dovetails are properly measured theoretical point to theoretical point. You have to use a set of pins and calculate the measurement to do it properly. Once you chamfer the edges and don't have a point and the measurement will be smaller.The edges are rounded to help with fitting and to knock any burrs off. The instructions are current, very detailed, and if followed to the letter will result in a very nice, clean installation. Carbide cutters are expensive but do a much better job.

    I have not run into one that it didn't work on. If it makes you nervous you can always send it back to STI for warranty.

    Sounds like the head of the recoilmaster is turned a little the wrong way and pressing against the barrel. You are on the right track with pressing the top front of the slide against the workbench. Instead of just pressing hard hold it steady with your left hand and hit it with the web of your right hand to push it down. If you get it to move a little jiggle the barrel. This sometimes sets the head back in place. If you can get it to move far enough remove the slide stop and start over with assembly. Both heads on the recoilmaster need to be aligned properly when you assemble to stop this from happening.
  5. Brazos Tuned Trigger Kit Pro Series 1911's

    Quack - Not the same and easily verifiable with a little research. I cut the hammer and sear angles on every one of these kits. The sear spring has also been tuned and I actually put it in a 2011 to test it for tension. Every gun is a little different so you may have to adjust the sear spring a little but it should be close. The sear and hammer hooks are cut to what I have found to be the middle of the tolerances for most guns from doing thousands of trigger jobs. This makes them pretty forgiving. The one thing to check is thumb safety engagement - because the hammer and sear angles have changed and you have different parts in the gun you make have to make an adjustment to the thumb safety lug that engages the sear. It can be too tight or too loose.
  6. STI Edge Trigger Trouble

    I have seen this quite a lot lately in the STI 2011's. The top of the trigger bow extends into the magwell when the trigger is fully to the rear. STI should fix it for you but if you want to do it yourself it is a fairly easy fix. You will need a dremel with a small grinder bit with at least a 1 1/2 inch reach. Take the slide off, look down the magwell from the top and pull the trigger to the rear. You will see the trigger bow sticking out - grind off the portion that is sticking out into the magwell. Make sure you clean the grit out after you finish. It takes a little longer but you can also take the grip completely apart and it is easier to get to the trigger bow.
  7. Vendors at Limited / Open/L10 Nationals

    We will be there and set up for both events.
  8. Butterfingers

    Take a stone to it. You just raised a small burr at the corner. It should not take much.
  9. 9mm HP Edge

    Not in my experience.
  10. We currently have two STI DVC 40 cal limited guns in stock ready for immediate delivery. Call 254-622-2245 to order.
  11. Lots of poppet holes

    I saw that cut in the frame. The ATF is not going to be happy about someone removing the manufacturers name from the dustcover.
  12. 9 Major Primer Question

    Put the mainspring in that came with the trigger group. It is a 17lb and is actually heavier than the spring that comes stock in the Trubor. The components in the trigger group are matched to work together. It would not hurt to make sure your primers are not high also.
  13. 170mm STI super tuned magazine 9mm

    They should be up on the website shortly. You will have to select from the dropdown list. The 9mm are available in 140mm and 170mm singles only with Dawson basepads only - no 4 packs at the present time.
  14. New STI DVC Open and Limited guns

    It is set up for 38 super. Adjusting the extractor a little tighter should make it work with supercomp. No need for TJ brass.
  15. Where are all the 9mm STI Eagles?

    We have several in stock.
