  1. So, I had an odd "issue" with my Staccato P DUO this evening. I installed a Vario X-Line, short flat, trigger tonight, and upon reassembly, I noticed the installation of this trigger has resulted in a bypass of the grip safety. I detail stripped it, cleaned it once more and reinstalled everything, and it has the same issue. Function check confirms the grip safety is disengaged, but the manual safety remains fully functional. It is otherwise a very smooth and crisp trigger pull, but I have never encountered an issue such as this. The pre travel is significantly shorter with almost zero overtravel and approximately a 3lb trigger pull. It is not a huge issue for me as the manual safety would be engaged during carry anyway, but curious as to what could cause this issue. Any ideas?

  3. Regarding a SS Grip with an aggressive texture; if it is a little too aggressive, would the best process be to run a very light file stroke around the entirety of the grip, or would a coarse of fine sandpaper be better? I'm not looking to remove the aggressive texture, just knock a very little bit of the bite off as it causes some pretty good hot spots even just during dry fire. It will also be sent out for Black Nitride coating shortly. Thanks.
  4. It's a "carry"/IPSC pistol in the Honcho family from what i'm hearing.
  5. I ordered one a few days ago during their sale. The wait is going to suck, but im looking forward to getting my hands on it.
  6. STI has done this very thing before. Focusing on production runs for large orders and then bringing other lines back into production. I wouldn't worry about it yet. Not to mention in the worst case, there are plenty of other builders making quality race guns for similar cost.
  7. Get the orders in prior to midnight, and when they call to confirm the build sheet make adjustments as needed... viola.....
  8. From what i understand from a reputable STI rep, they are not "getting rid of open guns". They are halting production for 2020 to focus on the new staccato line, and brining the DVC line into the staccato fold. Because they have a lot of LE/Fed contracts to push out right now, it makes sense from a business perspective to focus the efforts on the new line and then push back into the open guns once they get up to speed.
  9. Any updates on the rear optic plate as far as options for RDS go? I would love to be able to run an SRO in the slide ride configuration if possible.
  10. At least -45F. Not going to turn this into a dick measuring contest, but Glocks have been the subject of both destructive and non-destructive testing enough to be deemed reliable and service worthy. As a standard, yes 1911s are more finicky that modern striker fired pistols when it comes to reliability. Cool video though.
  11. Glocks have been torture tested more than almost any other pistol out there. To include extreme temps, explosions, etc.... Polymer is a lot stronger than you may like to admit.
  12. That isn't the replacement for the DVC. The pistol on the left is the Staccato P5, which was requested and is being used by LAPD. The DVC-P on the right is as currently manufactured. The new 5.4" Staccato pistol has not made an appearance yet. Spoke with Buck about this today.
  13. I tried to call last week, and emailed as well. I suppose I will reach out once more before i chalk it up and just have a PT grip fitted.
  14. Has anyone been in contact with Glenn from LSI? I called and talked to him a couple weeks ago about having a grip done with some other work, and he asked me to wait until the following week to get back to him, but since, I have been unable to get in touch. Really looking forward to getting the LSI Outlaw for my STI.
