    Thanks for the link. It was great to here the history. I remember giving my Edge mags to Bevin Gram to tune back in the day. It's amazing it took 25 years for STI to finally produce a mag that works.

    I have larger hands, and the 2011 frame feels right to me. My Staccato P is one of my favorites, and get's carried often now that I found a good holster for it. I even have his little brother, the C.

    I have to say it... I hope STI moves away from some of the MIM internals and spends just a couple more dollars on some reputable parts. I have seen a lot of really poorly made parts in the STI's back in my day of gunsmithing and just can't get past that right now. They do make a good looking gun though.

    I spent 3 hours at the STI factory today; and I can assure you there's not a MIM part in any of their current pistols!

    Hogrider that is excellent to hear. I hope they make a turn around. THey have been a huge company in the industry forever and I hated to see them slipping.

    Titanxt: I can assure you they fully realize they were behind the curve for several years. But I honestly feel they are in the process of reestablishing STI as a major player! We saw the raw, bar stock that was being manufactured into frames and slides by about a dozen Haas CNC machines.....several of which were 5 axis! Also saw the new, state of the art DLC coating machine that is now fully operational. And EVERY EMPLOYEE I talked to; from the president down, was very pro active and seemed to love their jobs! I feel STI is returning to there former glory!
