  1. I'am try to build my first 2011 9mm for uspas open,i did search but doesn't help me to list all parts and questions for build, need you guys building and using experience, please school me how to build it tight and accurate for open, will post all step and parts list with photo after job done ,hope can help the people who like me as well. Questions: what's the most difficult part to build my own 2011? how to build accurate open 2011? Parts List: slide: frame: cheely/ptrinity... grip: cheely/ptrinity... etc....
  2. I happen to find a local shooter last year that has a decent setup behind his house for using his Ransom Rest. He's been a long time Bullseye Competitor and has only used his rest for 1911 style pistols. I purchased a set of grip panels for the STI/McCormick widebody and we used it with (what I thought) pretty good success. Of course he did the setup and operation. Fast forward to this year and we decide to get together again to test some of my RL1100 ladder loads. Don't think we ever got the STI settled just right as results were all over the place. Michael Ransom shared that I should be treating it like a polymer framed pistol (Glock) and to make sure not to overtighten as it can cause less than desirable results. Said to make sure the mag will drop freely and there was free travel on the trigger return. And that A and C will generally be tighter than B. Trying this gives me the impression that the pistol is just not secured enough in the grip panels to keep the pistol from stringing/poor results. Also, there's only a few threads on the thumb screws when it's "snug" in the grip panels. Any seasoned Ransom Rest users here that can shed some light on the CORRECT way to set up a stock/polymer gripped STI 2011? I sure would appreciate it!
  3. I don't see any A/M/GAs running TSOs . With major power loads does the 2011 style trigger matter more the faster you go? Do you think a hinged trigger contributes to pulling the second shot of a pair low vs a 2011 trigger - all other things being equal.
  4. I finished my first 2011 build. To my surprise it actually shoots and it is more accurate than I am. I am having some reliability issues, though. First issue is a sticking of the slide. When to the gun starts to get hot after a few rounds, the slide begins to get stuck in battery and it takes a lot of force to rack the slide and eject the spent casing. When the gun cools down again, seems to work fine for a bit. Any ideas on why this is happening?
  5. Hey guys I’m hoping for some help because I’ve never owned a 1911/2011 and I’m planning on jumping feet first and doing a build. i currently own a Glock 40 for the woods, an HK USP45 tac for home, and a 9mm target gun. I’ve been getting into 80% lowers and Cnc and I have been considering trying to replace all 3 pistols with essentially 1 2011 frame/trigger and a 9mm, 10mm, and 45 slide. Is it possible to interchange slides like this? Are the magazines all the same size? any help would be greatly appreciated, it’s hard to find info online and I really am jumping into This blind.
  6. looking for a 2011 in 9mm would like it to be IDPA legal. so far looked at the STI Eagle 5.0 and it appears that the STI maurauder is IDPA legal . ESP class anyway. any ones that I am missing ?
  7. I don't know why no one offers a 1911 sized polymer grip for the 2011 frames. I searched but haven't seen one. Seems like a viable product. Make a 2011 style polymer grip so it accepts single stack mags and voila! I'm thinking it would be a lower cost way to build a 1911. Thoughts?
  8. I bought a used 2011 and I am trying to find a 9mm barrel but nothing looks quite the same. link to the pictures because I can't post them due to the size limit. https://imgur.com/a/8HFXGFl
  9. I watched he reveal last night on shooters mindset show. Considering this instead of a custom open build. I dont even know where to start with questions. What do do you guys think?

  10. Long story short. I've got a local gunsmith that's going to fit the barrel slide and frame and I'm going to try to do the rest of the work with some help from a family member. Looking for suggestions on parts. Eventually I'd like to turn this thread into a build log and update it a long the way. Right now im in the research stage of my build but I think I have a few things figured out: Caspian 5" slide Bar-Sto 5" bull barrel Pheonix trinity frame Polymer grips ( planing on an evo ) Egw ignition kit Caspian extractor SV medium flat trigger SV extra wide ambi FGW grip plug This is what I'm thinking so far just throwing it out there for advice or things you all have learned in your experiences building on the 2011 platform. Gonna piece it together slowly and availability on a lot of the parts I'd like is hit and miss. I'd rather have a Schumann/SV 5" bull barrel but no one has them. PT is currently 6-8 weeks out on frames and is working from a list. Kind Regards, AndyG
