    OK...I get it now. The STI 2011 is amazing. Beretta style barrel/feeding, 1911 trigger and ergos. I just put 150 rounds through it. . Cheapo 115gr Remington. It runs like the slide is on ball bearings. Flatest shooting I have ever experienced.

    I think I am in love.

    Zowie! Here are 20 shots at 10 yards in 15 seconds....offhand.

    The black rear sight picture is kind of lost against black target.

    Front fiber very precise.

    15491207315312922752815354260392.jpg I have never had a more mechanically accurate handgun. The reset on the STI is crazy good. Now the shooter needs to improve.

    ...so you used a lot of lube, right? ;)

    I do not believe on skimping on lube. In a variety of situations. :)

    Great write up, what does the grip on that 2011 compare to? Never had one in my hands

    my 2011 has both 40 S&W and 10mm barrels, and I love it.

    It gets shot a lot more than my 1911 does... :)

    Ergos of a 1911 but thicker because it is a double stack, great for my XXL hands. Love it.

    I stand corrected on my post from your other thread. Your gun does not have an ES grip. Trust me, you want to send your grip off to Extreme Shooters. It’ll be the best $100+ upgrade you can do to any 2011. Both DVC & Costa textures are great, I prefer the Costa, and the recontouring of the grip makes a BIG difference.

    Thanks, I've got no complaints with the grip, but good to know about the options. Seems to be working just peachy for me. :)
