gerritm Posted January 19, 2017 Share Posted January 19, 2017 I have a 38 super DVC. I have had a few small issues with it. Gun is at about 5K rounds. Extractor, ejector replaced, been running pretty good lately. Once in awhile I still have an extraction issue type jam that could be brass. All in all I have been happy with it. Many STI/DVC bashers but I like the looks, feels, handles, and it is local here in Texas. Price was right. 2 weeks ago I cleaned it after a match and found a hairline crack in the comp from the first top port to the first side port. Very small, but there could see the smoke residue. Trubor type 1 piece barrel/comp. Called STI warranty spoke to them and sent an e-mail. Promptly answered by Ryan. Sent a shipping label & RA# by email. Shipped it out that day. Sent a note with the issues I have had and requested that if they swap the barrel out to change it to 9mm instead of 38 super. Tired of chasing brass & we load 9mm for my son's DVC 3-gun. Saw by tracking they received it and waited a couple of days to send a follow up email. Ryan again answered promptly and said no problem with the swap out. Couple of days later he called and said they would have to ship it back to my FFL because of the caliber change. No problem. Sent me a tracking# next day and it arrived yesterday, total time from problem to getting it back about 2 weeks. They replaced the slide, barrel, and all internal slide parts including taking out the 38S Aftec and putting a tuned 9mm extractor and new ejector back. New slide racker, I sent a 140mm 38 super mag for testing and they sent back that mag plus a new 140mm 9mm mag. Gun looks great and I will be testing it this tomorrow and running it in a couple of matches this weekend if the rain ever stops. Great CS STI. gerritm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
