  1. Dito above: Slide mount optics are a carry optics format. Everything done to open guns is to speed of the slide and get back into batter as quick as possible for follow up shots. From the frame mounted optics to the sight tracker barrels ( island barrel ) lighting slices, etc. All focused on removing material from the slide to make it lighter and faster. The average time for an open gun to cycle is under.1 sec. I have witnessed follow-up shots ( from a top GM ) at .11 seconds. You mount the optics on the slide and he would have to wait. Crazy to think, but we all want to be that fast,
  2. Definitely go with the open. I am a high C shooter in USPSA and averaged around 56%. I bought my first IMMI open infinity and my first 2 matches with the new gun were 81% and 83%!! They shoot so flat and are so reliable that it seems hard to miss. Good luck Kris
  3. I am getting ready to send a pistol in for refurbishment. I like this, will talk with them about adding to my rebuild. Kris
  4. thanks for Reading and responding. I agree with most post both good and bad. I agree that SV customer service could use a bit of help, clarity is what they need. As far as the" safety "was concerned ( adrone ) If you bought that gun new, and that happened, I would be shocked!!! If you bought used, they have no way of knowing if it had been replaced in past. Changing a thumb safety can take at the most an hour if you have done before. They know that, but not everyone has fitted one ( I have ruined a couple over the years ) so not everyone else knows that. They are amazing guns when the
  5. I have read several posts that address SVI's lack of willing to maintain existing firearms. I have been is a two month email discussion with them about that. I have emailed back and forth with Brandon, and can say with confidence that they are willing to maintain "their" product. He has committed to me to re-furbish an older IMM open gun. He has also expressed that they will do gunsmithing type work on "their " guns. That is the secret, and modified firearm, or other brands, they will not work on. They are focused on their product only. They are also only interested in returning a firear
  6. I reached out to SV last year about getting a barrel from them to replace a Scheumman barrel, and they said there were no replacement options at this time!! Not what someone wants to here who has an older SV.??
  7. I have several SVI open guns. A close friend ( Class A shooter ) bought an Atlas. He held and shot my SVI and wished he had dropped just a little more and got the SVI. SVI is a true Custom build. All SV parts, Great gun. My newest SV ran flawlessly in very first match, and has never had a hik-up!!! Kris
  8. I have my first DP Pro, and not real happy. I have the a couple of the older delta points and they have been bulletproof. this new one has been trouble. Had to go to back up gun on first match, dot was so dim could hardly pick-up on a cloudy day. then it would not turn on. Got home, turned on dim, put new battery in twice and seems to be working. Honestly I hate where the on/off switch is. When you do want turn off, you cannot see if dot is off until you move your finger, if not back in, frustrating.
  9. I would take the time to tune to my loads for $1,000 even, if your interested.  I am solid buyer ( and Seller ) on this forum.

  10. you will never be disappointed with SVI. They are the best, last "forever" or at least it seems. I have one that has over 32k rounds, and frame/slide fit is still great. Still great. You can find ( if you stay aware ) Infinity guns used, for sale. If you are willing to spend up near $4,000 you will get a spectacular gun, without the 20 month wait. I have purchased many, and have never been disappointed. Kris
  11. Maybe research Dura-coat? It is surprising easy to apply ( 4-8 light coats) and looks good. Not like cera-coat, you can buy and paint yourself. Sand-blast, clean, and paint, if its your gun it does not have to be perfect, but It will be better than no coating at all. Kris
  12. I have several, both the SVI sight-tracker, and the STI Island Barrel ( like on the Apiero) one thing you are overlooking is the fact that the front sight is no longer mounted on the slide, but on the end of the barrel. It is not all about reciprocal mass ( which is important ) but the front sight does not rock back and forth with the slide, but sits fairly stationary ( rocks down and back slightly as barrel unlocks ) The SVI sight tracker is huge compared to the sti island barrel, but the front sight is the same. As far as weight is concerned it does move more weight out to end ( sol
  13. I was kinda surprised no bolt hold at all?? But doesn't really mater, just one less thing that can go wrong. Don't really feel a need for last round hold?
  14. where do they have practice stages at a match? WOW what a concept, I would love that. Work out kinks without destroying a whole day. Get a little extra work. I am going to suggest at the next match. I have never seen it done in Washington area.
  15. I have built a gibbz arms G-9. And although very nice, it has issues. Some have had trouble with cartridge ejecting, I have had no problems there, but loading a magazine was a totally different issue. Problem is the bottom of the bolt is not tapered at all, and when loading the left feed lip hits edge of bolt and will actually bend down after a couple of attempts to slam it home, then its worse. I had to mill a taper cut into the one side of the bolt. Not for the faint at heart. There is another post from a guy with pictures of what he did. This seems to have fixed that problem, loads sm
