  1. Oh damn that sucks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I had the same issue. Send it in. I got mine back within a few weeks I believe. Not helpful if you’ve got upcoming matches and no back up, but they did take care of me at least. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I actually bought the gun all set up from the original purchaser. I’m sure it’s on their website... it’s very high quality work that’s for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I have one done up by Cajun gunworks and it’s excellent. Great optic cut for the SRO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. More of the same here. I’ve loaded tens of thousands of them in 9major, 9minor, and 40major. Haven’t noticed any issues at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Yup. Same as above. Especially with 10mm... not a soft recoiling round... go RMR Type 2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Haha this is the truth. Not to mention the price point for agency purchase. I handled an acquisition of and transition to a new handgun for duty at my agency once.. adding more than $1000 to the price of the guns we were looking at wouldn’t have been considered for 2 seconds. And while a small percentage of the guys would have seen any sort of performance benefit- assuming you had an actually dead reliable 2011- the majority struggle to safely operate a Glock... I can’t imagine trying to get the lowest on the competency scale to safely and competently handle a 2011. I’m not kidding when I say
  8. P-01 is a solid choice. I had a steel frame 75compact. It was a sweet gun, but too heavy. I bet the aluminum frame version is nice! Check out Cajun gun works for trigger work. Makes a super heavy stock Cz trigger flat out dreamy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Thanks for the link. I’ve never seen those before, looks like maybe a gen5 addition to the product line? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  11. 9mm or 40? I have never seen a Glock 22 or 24 round factory 9mm magazine- if there is one I can not see how it would be longer than 171. But the 31/33 is definitely too long. As for limited capacity in open, yes. Rather than set a number for the limit they set length of the mag. This makes some guns more successful at using the available space. And makes other major calibers, outside 9/38, essentially useless in the arms race of open. I can get 29/30 in my MBX 9mm mag so shooting a gun in 40 becomes a handicap immediately because you can only squeeze 24-25 rounds. If you’re talking the 40s&
  12. They have a few options I think. Mine is the claw 2.5 I believe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I have a JM custom kydex AIWB holster for my full size 92. It is the most comfortable concealment holster I’ve got. The full size is definitely a brick of a gun but the holster makes it very comfortable and conceals very well. I’d love to see what it would do to a 92 compact. I think that would be a very concealable option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Fingers crossed that their recent change in policy is something mainly to protect themselves from people trying to game the system, and they intend to still service guns with honest issues... I’ve heard of more than one recent warranty issue that’s been taken care of promptly since the change. That’s good news. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I love 2011s... I’ve owned several diff in limited and open. Stock and custom tuned STIs as well as a custom build. I have yet to go thru a season without gun issues at some point. If Tac sports are as reliable as my shadow and shadow 2 were- I wish I had gone tac sport for limited rather than 2011. This upcoming season I’m shooting a lot of carry optics because I’m so sick of malfunctions in matches. There are plenty of people who have very reliable 2011s... I just bring out the issues apparently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  16. Yea that seems to be the route they’re going. They cut all the competition guns out of the lineup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  17. I have not seen one mounted like that. I feel like it would not be an ideal optic to turn over on its side- the circle shape of the more makes the glass seem the same from either orientation, with the holosun i feel like it would be odd. It really doesn’t seem to sit high to me. Once you take the rail mount and the putter shell off the top it’s not bad. I went from a delta point pro to a holosun and i love it.

  18. I think you’re probably right. I’m not sure what the perfect plan would be for them... I just know that buying a new or used STI was palatable when I had a sense that STI had my back if the gun had issues. Now that’s changed and I don’t see myself buying any more STIs. Too many other good/better options out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  19. This is all very new. Pretty much up till now they would take care of any sti gun that had come out of their shop- vortex/Dillon style. That’s changed and it seems they’ve pretty much shut down their warranty service program. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  20. And training budgets get expensive real quick... it’s a tough problem to solve... but regardless of that, there are plenty of guys carrying guns professionally that wouldn’t shoot more than 100 rounds a year unless you absolutely forced them. It’s insane on so many levels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. I would hope so. And yes I totally understand not covering aftermarket slide cuts. I’m more irritated about the metal grip aspect. I’ve now got an open gun that has no warranty because it’s wearing a metal grip, something that did not void the warranty last week... and something that would not have been added if it expressly voided a warranty. Truth be told I probably would have just spent the money on a diff brand set up the way I wanted had that always been the case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  22. Yea, but most departments don’t allow guys to buy their own guns regardless of assignment. Outside of a few big agencies most of LE carries whatever the Dept issues. And Glock is far and away the one to beat. When a Glock is $350 for an agency purchase and sti is $2000+. I feel like they might be barking up the wrong tree long term. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure they’ll still sell some. And i don’t know, maybe the market for quality semi custom builds has already gut punched STI sales enough that they needed to make a change to stay afloat. So add to that change the savings of not spending time
  23. I have to think this is a boost to smaller gunmakers. Once the warranty support is gone I wouldn’t even look at an STI over something from a smaller shop. I assume they expected some of this... unless they’re not planning ahead at all. Maybe they are expecting high volume govt agency sales to increase. Which seems to be what they’re pushing. I guess it all depends on how many they sell to competitors vs how many they expect to sell to police depts. Which is an odd thought anyway.. I handled acquisition and transition to new handguns once when I was a LEO, and I would have gotten laughed out th
  24. I’ve had 2 of the DVC opens in 9mm. The first one was excellent right up until the barrel cracked..... I think zero malfunctions in the lifetime. The 2nd has been solid. Not as perfect tho, some minor issues but it’s still a good gun. Now I’m dreading when it does have an issue. And add to that the resale value likely just tanked... ugh.

  25. Wow. I own a dvc that had a cracked barrel at 5k. They were awesome and fixed it .. actually sent me a new gun back pretty quickly (which I didn’t request, would have been happy with the original as it was flawless till the crack).. I got the same gen1 dvc barrel in the new one. Really haven’t worried about it, but just waiting for the new one to crack just the same- as it’s the original design they have since fixed. Now I guess I’m screwed when it does??? “Any modification to the gun, including cosmetic” seriously? And any non open gun that’s had reloaded ammo through it (all limited guns)? A
