  1. Its a long shot that its rough machining because I inspected the gun when new (2-3 years ago) and being my second 2011 pistol, I made close scrutiny of its difference to my older STI Edge and that line in there was not there at all before. Anyway will see what the local dealer says and does.
  2. I've contacted the STI dealer here. We are organizing to get the pistol to them and for their in-house gunsmith to have a look closely to form an opinion if it is a genuine crack or what they alleged could be a blemish stress (?) After several weeks now.....it has taken this long a waaaaiiit.....just to let it be seen and to make a judgement on what to do.
  3. well I have been shooting it and so far I still have my fingers Im not sure if it will last long - still waiting for STI dealer....
  4. Sounds like a loooong wait then...
  5. one thing is for sure, it wasnt there the last 3 years as I clean the gun regularly. Compared it with my older STI Edge and none same markings. I was thinking could I have missed this as a tool mark but the line is not straight and wobbly plus running a swab over it, feels like there is a sharp edge on it.
  6. spoke to the distributor. Will see - so far waiting for an answer.
  7. one week in, no answer from STI....will keep you posted.
  8. Are you a gunsmith? Just wanting an opinion whether there is a risk that this blows up in my hand and sends shrapnel and kaboom while shooting?
  9. It stopped before reaching the slide stop hole and there are no signs on the outside. Maybe its a stress chip/ fracture, I dont know
  10. I guess if it is not impeding gun function, I could still shoot this.
  11. bought new - I've been shooting it occasionally being my second gun
  12. less than 5k rounds, should I be worried about this? Any suggestions if this is repairable as dont think warranty claim is an option when I am outside of the US.
  13. All my STI's once I get them, the first change is the recoil spring to the way I like it - lighter and then I shoot it.
  14. That is a fantastic idea about paper plates. I will use that.... This is interesting - as its low at 50 yards, thanks for that.
