    Anyone have one? I haven’t seen any reviews on them, but think they look nice. I just placed an order for one, which is the most I’ve spent on a pistol. I’m curious to see how the island barrel shoots.

    Let me know if you’ve shot one and what you think!

    Island barrel shoots very nice. Paired with a bull barrel and full length dust cover on my Apeiro 9mm it results in very low recoil. Not sure its really lower than a Les Baer Monolith, but its low.

    I have one and it’s a really cool pistol. I think STI quit making the island bbl and went back to a bull bbl on the current limited, likely due to a simpler cheaper design?

    Yeah. That’s what STI informed me. They had a few left in stock so I snagged one. I have a tactical and love the way it shoots. I’m hoping this is all that and more. Have you noticed being able to track the sight any better compared to your other STi’s?

    I haven’t shot mine yet lol! I have a Bull bbl version and the island, they are both nice but from what I understand the Island bbls have the edge on speed.
