  1. It seems some of you cannot read, it's not about contracts, it's about individual sales and they are selling/shipping 80 guns a day according to Tony. As far as the name change goes, who cares. SVI changed their name 10 years ago to Infinity firearms, but 99% of shooters still refer to them as SV or SVI. I like the name STI, but can certainly see why they want to change it. It's their company and their call to make. This is an easy call to make. If you don't like what they are selling don't buy it. I've had much more expensive guns not run as good as these pistols have so far. While I'm not into the 10's of thousands yet, I'm working on it and have been very please so far.
  2. I wish they would, because IDPA CO is what I shoot with my Stacatto P DUO.
  3. No doubt. I work on the border with those guys pretty frequently and they are ready to get the new Glocks!!
  4. There are only a few agency contracts that I know of. Most of their LE sales are to individual officers like us. They are building/shipping over 60 pistols a day, so somebody is buying them and the dealers around DFW can't keep them on the shelf. As far as reliability goes, whether it's the new mags or better QC, I'm not sure, but I've got 4 in my safe and they all run, period. And I'm getting the same reviews from all of my co-workers who bought them as well. Believe me, I put the group purchase together, and they'd be burning my phone up if they were having issues. I was at STI a couple weeks ago, getting some grip/trigger work done and based on what I heard, I think we'll see them offer more competition based pistols in the future. ANd I hope so. I'm enjoying IDPA Carry Optics enough, they I would think hard about a 9mm major open gun.
  5. Welcome!! Read, search and read some more.
  6. Alamo Precision Rifles 20" 6.5 Creedmoor, MullerWorks barrel, Trigger Tech trigger, McMillan stock and trued Remington 700 left handed action with bottom metal of some kind that I can't remember. It's kind of a PRS/Hunting hybrid. Putting a Athlon Ares 4.5-27 on it. Not a top shelf optic, but won't hold me back.
  7. I'm very happy with mine and it's a must if you have an RF-100...unfortunately.
  8. The SAME jacket material * The SAME nose shape. *The SAME diameter. *The SAME weight. *The SAME cartridge OAL *The SAME propellant charge weight *The SAME brass case headstamp *The SAME primer *Fired from the SAME barrel/firearm with the barrel rifling chemically cleaned BETWEEN shots. Well, pardon me, but wouldn't that make it an identical round of ammunition? I think people do it to give the reader/reloader a place to start or stay away from.
  9. Well, the only real issue I have with my 1050 is the primer feed/slide. So, I have to remove that assembly and the primer magazine to clean out the primer slide area. A real PITA, but I know how to do it now, and as long as the magazine is empty is no big deal.
  10. We broke the one on my super 1050 when we were getting it set up. Thankfully I had a spare parts kit. Now, I'm extra careful when I remove/install that part as it comes off pretty frequently.
  11. Well, honestly, you waited too long. I'd find a friend near you to do them and give them half of the bullets!! Otherwise, get a cheap single stage press and an RCBS bullet puller. It's going to take A LONG time, no matter what puller you use.
  12. I just purchased my first PRS style rifle and would like to enjoy a forum dedicated to that sort of shooting. What's your favorite? Thanks, Trace
  13. You will likely have to wait on hold for over an hour, but it sounds like a call to Dillon is needed. They are pretty new as well, so maybe your warranty is still good....
  14. Depends on your barrel. My SVs were slow and took more like 5.4 grains at 1.20" with a jacketed 180 grain bullet.
