STI open frame

Just want to know if anyone here use their open STI frame for limited too. I am thinking if it is reasonable to just get a new slide or buy a whole new limited gun such as the Edge. I also wanted to know if there are any disadvantage or negative in using the same frame of my open gun. Thanks

It is possible. Freedom Gunworks offered a package that came with a 9mm open top end with a Leupold deltapoint slide mounted and a 40 cal limited top end. He claimed ejector tuning was a non-issue. I would imagine it would be easier to do this from the start though as both slides could be fit to the frame perfectly

I had a 9mm barrel fitted for an open gun, along with dovetails cut in the slide. So when I want it for limited minor or 3 gun, I take off the c-more, put the sights in the cuts, & swap barrels. Runs super. It's an IBF SV slide, so I guess I could have a 40 barrel fitted to it too.

This is my truBor in disguise. I'm not sure if it is detrimental to the gun or not but it functioned well.

It is a Trojan top end. I don't think it is cost effective to have a top end built for a frame you already have.

Nice! Is this in 40? So single stack top end will work on a double stack too? Where did you purchased the top end Trojan? Thanks

I already owned the complete Trojan.

Both guns are 38 super but a 40 should work If the ejector and mags suit.

The fit is hit and miss. My newer Trojan won't fit but the old one shown is fine.

Thanks for the info.
