  1. Anyone have any experience converting a Glock 34 to an open gun? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’ve been handling Glock 34s trying to determine which to buy. I really like the Gen 3 model. Any opinions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I just picked up a new CRP hardchrome Edge from Dawson. I ordered 4 additional mags (6 total). The slide is locking back with 1 or 2 rounds still in the magazine with 5 out of 6 of these mags. These are the new style magazines. I let them sit loaded to maximum capacity for 2 days before the first use. Any suggestions? Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I purchased an STI Edge in 9mm. It's an amazing gun but I didn't really think it through. I should have ended up with a 40 not a 9 ) : is there any place in the sport for an edge in 9? If not I'll hopefully find someone to trade for one in 40. What do you think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes you are seeing through the feed lips and down the tube, I replaced the follower, no change. I don't have another spring handy to try at the moment. This is the old style tube. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I picked up a new STI 170mm 9mm magazine about a month ago. I installed a Dawson Prec plus 1 basepad. Since doing so the follower seems to get stuck very low in the magazine and turning my mag into a pepper shaker.... any ideas? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Update: I loaded and shot 50 124 grn 5.8 grn Autocomp Sweet giblets that's a stout load. I'm glad I put the 8 lb recoil spring back in. More "felt" recoil in that load than my 9 major load. I'm going to load 50 more at: 115 grn 5.8 grn autocomp And 124 grn 5.4 grn autocomp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. You just made my point.... it was a FACTORY gun that was modified by a third party.... again back to the truck scenario. Why would they provide a factory warranty on a factory gun that has been chopped to hell and back and is no longer factory???? Your ignorance is amusing sir. My regards to you and your "friend" again I love these third party shit talkers condemning a company for no reason. Go buy ANY factory gun from a glock to a 2011, mill/ chop/ lighten the slide, then if it breaks try claiming the warranty lmao. It's not going to be covered. Jeebus someone get this kid a helmet.

  12. Seriously?!?!?! That's not how it works man lol. You can't expect a company to back a product that they did not modify. That's like me modifying my Ford Raptor with the turbos on a Ford Shelby F150. Yea it's the same design and OEM parts but they didn't do the work. When I blow my engine of course they won't cover it. Now had I had Ford modify my truck it would have been covered. I bet had your friend had STI (they have a custom shop and would have done this) mill the slide they would have covered it. That's not fair to blame STI for your friends choices and bad luck, why should they warranty that???? Again, ask any other gun manufacturers... if they build you a gun and then after the fact you cut their slides via a 3rd party they WILL not warranty it if it breaks. That's not BAD customer service, that's GOOD business. By your logic applied here you must be one of those people who believe in free healthcare, free college tuition, free cell phones, and EBT cards for the masses. This applies to nearly every consumer product... when you modify a product you void the conditions and warranty by using it in a manner in which it was not designed to be used. I'm not calling you out because your talking shit about STI. I'm calling you out because your ignorance is putting out bad information about a manufacturer who did nothing wrong. I don't care if it was CK, SVI, LSI, FGW, or Rock Island, everyone has their own brand preference. This shares your intelligence level to the rest of the forum. Again, I challenge you to call and find one manufacturer who would warranty a gun that failed after a 3rd party makes MAJOR modifications to said mentioned critical parts on a gun. If you can I'll ship you a six pack of your favorite beer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. No offense but I don't believe this guy commenting on the post saying STI told this guys "friend" that "you broke it, you fix it" and I'm sure if they did say that then there was clear evidence of your "friend" misusing or abusing the gun. I own many many STIs that I bought new (open and limited) and haven't had an issue yet. I recently purchased a second hand several year old STI Steelmaster 9mm minor Open gun. It had an issue with the slide stop falling out. This gun is about 6 years old and STI paid for shipping to them and will pay for shipping to return it and are going to replace the entire frame of the gun as a warranty because they aren't sure whether it's an issue in their end or by the previous owner. By all LEGITIMATE (not my "friend" said or my cousins friend said stories) accounts STI has taken care of their customers when it is deserved.... again if you damage your gun due to your own modifications, slide cuts, negligence, or misuse then I would expect no less of them to turn you away. I'm sure ALL manufacturers are the same way. I bet if you took one of Bobbys guns, had someone else have it lightened and cut, then it broke.... he would turn you away as well. That applies to pretty much any consumer product on any market. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I spoke with Zane at STI, he's sending me a free shipping label and they are going to handle it under warranty. CUSTOMER FREAKING SERVICE right there boys. He said they've seen it before and it's actually a frame issue. The hole that the SS pin inserts into opens up because it wasn't squarely drilled. So I'll most likely end up with a new frame and lower parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I tried that too Tyler, no dice. That's why I'm thinking about the barrel link. There are only 4 points on contact here that I can imagine could even impact this situation. 1.Slide stop through frame cuts 2.Detent pin to slide stop 3.Slide stop through barrel link 4. Slide stop to barrel We've ruled out: Slide stop Detent pin/ spring Leaving the barrel link, barrel cut, or frame cut. All of these LOOK the same as all my other 2011s though. No wear visible.
