    Most realiable 2011 mags

    +1 on the Dawson mag tuning kit with both STI Gen 1 & 2's as well as SVI mags all with Grams guts and all in .40. The key is tuning them and then keeping them tuned.
  2. I'm loading .40 RNFP Xtreme bullets and I was experiencing occasional double drops. The solution that was recommended to me was to use a rubber band to pull the dropper assembly back down to the die vs. just using the weight of the dropper assembly. I installed the rubber band and have not had a problem since then, this would probably also work for your issue of dropping them all at once. I would also look and make sure there were no burrs on the dropper assembly and die interface as well.

    Mark7 Evolution

    It does the same thing as a rubber band, just costs a whole lot more....

    Thumb rest slide stop Question

    I've got the Nitrofin on my 2011 as well and love it. Will have one on all my future builds.

    Finally did it - Atlas Gunworks

    I have a custom sight block from Adam I just received a few months ago, I’ve got a little over 5k rounds on it. I clean the barrel normally as I have for years with all my other 1911/2011’s. Yes I agree, Adam and Cat’s customer service is the best that I have ever dealt with.

    Questions about STI gen2 mags

    I have both Gen 1 and Gen 2 STI mags in .40, both versions lock up and drop free easily right out of the package, so no I haven't seen a difference between the 2 Gen's. Note that this is with a PT Evo grip.

    thumb rest or not

    I thought the nitrofin thumb rest was gimmicky until I tried it, now I put it on all my Limited guns.
  15. Find a used 2011 Edge, they come up here all the time. Then start trying different modifications to it to see what you like (SVI trigger with interchangeable inserts - buy several and try them, standard adjustable blade rear sight vs notched rear sight, red or green fiber optic front sight insert, standard STI magwell vs. Dawson Ice, etc...). Once you figure out what you like most then order what fits your needs.
