  1. Would a REALLY good reason be that you wanted a limited 9mm that matched your limited 40 and open gun? Asking for a friend.
  2. Thanks it is brand new again, I hope it last this time.
  3. Update on the cracked comp, it took exactly 3 months, the frame and slide are new, grip and SV trigger are the same ones. I got the old, now new again dovetail slide racker on it which is fine with me, they aren't doing the screw in any more, I was told it was not received well. This one locks up tighter then the old one when it was new and the trigger is lighter, it was right at 2# before now it's averages 1.7# which is lighter then my Limited. I shot several hundred rounds through it, also chrono some rounds and it seams to be a faster barrel, its shooting over 1400 fps now with my old loads, around 50 to 80 fps average faster. The aftec extractor was returned and so was the firing pin and spring which was stock so I have those as replacements in the range bag. They replaced the hard case that had gotten broken and gave me two more 140 mags so overall other then the time it took I'm happy with the outcome, hopefully this comp last. If not this post will be resurrected
  4. I'll add my 2 cents it may help someone that is undecided. I recently added a Nitro Fin 2 to my limited gun and really like the flatter thumb rest compared to the RHT that is on my open gun. For me it feels better then many of the other thumb rest I've tried. I don't care for the up right feel of the others and it seemed like I would hit my thumb on them more when I was building my grip. I moved the Nitro Fin to my open gun and ordered another one for the limited. They both feel the same when I draw and my thumb feels flatter more like shooting without a thumb rest.
  5. Sorry for your loss, hang in there.
  6. Glad you are enjoying it, I like my Limited in 40 a lot, great shooting gun.
  7. Best advice is to listen to Steve Anderson's podcast and or get his books, I think he explains it better then anyone. Calling the shots in dry fire is about being honest about having an acceptable sight picture on target, if it's not acceptable then shoot it again as if you are in a match. Steve explains what accuracy mode, speed mode, match mode is and how to use them to coach yourself.
  8. Yep, surprised me also, I hope it's new they are going to have it 3 months a least. They said that it had all been fit once and if they fit another barrel to slide and slide to frame the metal can get to thin and could crack later. So I'm told I get a new gun with my grip, Aftec and mount with the RTS2, if it comes back with the new style of slide racker then its new. If not I should be able to tell if the slide is new because I had a spot that I polished out a scratch by the slide stop. They tried to talk me into the black barrel but I want the TiN/gold color to match my Limited gun, which they said they would recoat the Limited black to match if I would like. But I like the look of the chrome and gold a lot better then the chrome and black. I'll do another up date when I get it back, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
  9. STI gets beat up pretty good on here due to problems they have had. I have an open and limited DVC's, the limited 40 has run great however the open is back to STI with a cracked comp. Which I knew would be happening because of how the comp was cut and the problems others have had with that same cut. When I get it back it will be all new except the grip. How old is the guns you are talking about? I have not read anything on the chamber issue that you and the other two are experiencing but maybe they all were manufactured round the same time. I haven't had any problems with FTF pointing up mine were nose diving and I had cause that problem be tuning the mags to the wrong specs. As soon as it was called to my attention that I was using the wrong numbers and tuned the mags again the problem disappeared. The idea of the steel open gun was to shoot factory ammo, since there is no PF required, the longer OAL is just something that 2011's are known to like. I load my rounds to the 1.16" for major that you have found to work in yours.
  10. Update, Well it been since December 6 (almost 2 1/2 months) that STI has had my open gun. When I talked to them in January they said 12 weeks so hopefully I get it back at the end of the month. They also said that the only thing I'm get back from my original gun is the grip and RTS2 with the mount, everything else will be new. So I'm guessing it will have the new charging handle.
  11. You can get the barrel support for the Double Alpha holsters, I have one on mine and like it. Not sure if it's needed but I feel better having it.
  12. I,ve never had a bad match result...… some just aren't as good as others!
  13. The only thing I changed on my 9mm DVC Open was the recoil spring, I put a 7# in , Aftec extractor with both springs and everything else as far as springs is stock. It has an SV flat trigger, RTS2, a RHT thumb rest and a heavy LimCat magwell. I use CCi small pistol primers with HS6 powder, OAL 1.65"
  14. Open gun 2.2 average. Limited gun 1.11 average. Both STI DVC's
  15. I'm glad you said that, because we have tried different powers and I could not tell the difference. When I LOOk at the dot it goes up does a very slight upside down teardrop shape and back to the same spot, it never leaves the glass. Now that being said I could usually tell when we tried more powder as in higher power factor with the different powders, then it becomes a different feel to me. I'm not opposed to tring different power to see how they feel or the accuracy of them, that's some of the fun of reloading.
