  1. Just received and installed the new Dawson Precision Tool-Less Guide Rod in my Staccato P:https://dawsonprecision.com/guiderod...son-precision/Of course, it will need a full function test at the range asap. But my initial opinion is this guide rod is a welcomed modification and awesome product! Polished smooth as glass, and includes a proprietary 13# spring. The ease of take down vs the stock STI retention tool makes disassembly of the top end so much easier!Couple of days after my purchase, I decided to call Dawson for some detailed info concerning the spring weight, etc, as I was concerned w
  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
  3. 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 ?
  4. Anyone have one of the new STI DVC Classic single stacks? I see there are some for sale, but I haven't seen any reviews by anyone yet. Thanks.
  5. Excerpt from Brazos Custom Gunwork's Facebook post about it - "DVC L Discontinued by STISTI is discontinuing the DVC L and no direct replacement has been announced. It will soon join the STI Edge as a no longer available but great option for USPSA Limited Division competition. We have only one DVC L left -- 9mm in black with gold. As Dave Skinner (long-time former owner of STI and lifetime USPSA member) would have said, 'when they're gone they're gone...'" It will be interesting to see if there is a new Staccato that will be released to fill this void in their lineup.
  6. 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
  7. I recently tuned my 140mm 40 mags with Taran Tactical Springs, followers and base pads. The SVI tubes loaded to 21, the STI mags loaded to 20. All worked well. Went to tune 170mm 9mm mags all nothing went right. The small taran tactical follower would allow a round to slip past when attempting to load to capacity?? then it was a mess coming back. I tried the standard follower and they worked, but could not get 30 rounds in any STI Mag. I Switched back to the Grams follower, with Taran Tact. Spring and they worked but could not get more than 28 in an STI tube. I have several SVI tubes wi
  8. Folks: I am going to change the rear sight on my 2011. I need to know if you drive it out left to right or right to left when looking at it from the hammer. Thanks much, Machine
  9. Is a Brand New 2011 STI Trubor for $2325 a good deal? (shipping is included) Thank you!.
  10. Just got a new STI DVC shot about 300 rounds total and worried about the contact that is happening between the barrel and the slide. It looks as though the barrel it’s twisting a bit when it’s unlocked and contacting the slide on both sides of the hood extension of the barrel. I’ve included a picture of where it’s deforming the slide a bit. I contacted STI and they said don’t worry about it, and this is normal with the tight tolerances they have with their fitting. This just doesn’t seem right to me so thought I’d check here with many more guys who have a lot more experience than I do. The
  11. Thinking about changing out the stock recoil spring on my 40 cal Edge with a 12 lb one to keep the muzzle from nosediving so much. Any thoughts? Thanks, Darrell
  12. I'm trying to find reloaded ammo for sale in .40. I'm looking for something that is tuned down to meed the requirements of powerfactor for that load. I would reload but due to the lack of time and knowledge of how to reload are the things that are holding me back. Does anyone know of any place to buy?
  13. Hello to all of you. I'll be getting a new STI DVC open. It will be 9mm and I plan to shoot 9mm major. I have experience reloading, but not 9mm major. I'm looking for suggestions as far as OAL, powder and qty to begin loading major for this gun. I'm planning on using 124gr round nose RMR bullets. My first approach was going to be using the maximum suggested powder qty found in reputable reloading books for 9mm + 1gr. Any recomendations are welcome.
  14. I have a STI Trubore and a zigracker and am looking for recommendations for a gunsmith that has good quality and a quick turnaround to install my zigracker. I live in Montana and while it seems most of the gunsmiths around the area are fair in price and do good work, a quick turnaround is not in their vocabulary
  15. I just purchased one of the new STI DVC Limited Islands in 9mm, so I figured I’d post a quick review. This is my first 2011, and will replace my Glock 34 for 3 gun. After a few months of research and reading through countless posts here, I was between an STI DVC, CK, or Atlas gun. When I came across the DVC Island on Gunbroker, it seemed like a good compromise between the features that I wanted and cost. I really liked the concept of a sight tracker, which previously limited me to an Apeiro or custom gun. This seems to be a good middle ground between those 2 options, although CK and Atlas def
  16. I shoot a 9mm STI Trubor in Open... The firing pin spring is starting to wear on the sides... I'd like to get another FP spring, but I don't want to use a super long, super heavy Wolff spring. I use Wolff variable rate recoil springs, so I have lots of the firing pin springs that come with their recoil springs... I don't understand why anyone would want an "extra power" firing pin spring? Doesn't that just make it harder for the hammer to push the firing pin into the primer? More resistance from the spring? Plus, they are super long. What's a good firing pin sprin
  17. Wasssup guys. Just scored a sweet deal on an STI Steel Master. I was looking to get one for the local club non uspsa matches and steel matches and also for 3 gun open division. A local guy contacted me and offered me one for 1200$ that has only 3k rounds and has been tuned by the illustrious Eddie Garcia. Also came sporting an RTS2 and with one 140mag with grahams guts and dawson follower. so i am pretty happy with it. My question is this, i have am extra PT grip laying around from when I upgraded to the PT EVO and was thinking about putting on this gun. I am not shooting steel ch
  18. Maybe I did something wrong,but when I went to STI website only 1911 SS they had was the DVC 1911. What happened to Trojan and all the others?
  19. I am new to 2011 pistols and need suggestions on what works for left handed shooters when it comes to mag release engagement. I have tried simply hitting the stock and an oversized release with my trigger finger but it's not smooth and certainly slow..... I just received a mitchell right side mag release but my hands are too small for my left hand thumb to reach it.... Is my best option using my support hand (right) thumb for depressing the right side mag release????
  20. I am about to start the process of buying all the parts to build my first 2011 with the help of a gunsmith buddy to build. I need Ideas on where to find the best deals and what parts are worth spending the money on and what aren't. I'm basing it off an Sti lower and blank upper unless i can find one premilled that looks cool. Thanks in advance for the help
  21. New to the forum. Just picked up a STI DVC Limited in 40 to shoot USPSA. Shot predominantly production that last couple years but made the jump to Limited. Zero'd the gun and chrono'd to make 170 PF. The gun came stock with a 14 lb. recoil spring. Can i go with a lighter recoil spring and still have reliability? Any suggestions on what weight recoil spring? I amend to the 2011 platform so unsure of hat i can and cannot do....also anybody use shot-buffs in their guns? Thanks for the help.
  22. Hello everyone. I am new to competitive shooting and have a question concerning STI mags. I hear the guts of the mags aren't up to par for most shooters and they are changed out. what does everyone use or recomend to change them out to? Currently running STI EDGE and STI EXECUTIVE both in 40cal. Any information would be helpful.
  23. Hello, all. New to this forum, but have been mining it for information for years. Recent transplant to the Richmond VA area by way of south west Missouri. B class Limited Minor shooter who came to his senses and switched to Production. Looking forward to what I can learn from here.
  24. Howdy, I have spent the last 21 years as a forensic scientist specializing in firearms (long before anyone ever heard about CSI!). Anyway, I have owned a number of handguns over the years (Glock, Colt, Sig, Ruger) and have enjoyed all of them. I’m finally getting interested in shooting USPSA and really like all that I have read and watched about STI firearms (particularly the Edge and Tactical). I hope to purchase one of these in 9mm Luger. I’m here to learn from others in this great community and hope to contribute meaningfully as well. Thanks!
