In terms of felt recoil impulse and build quality, which do you prefer: the older STI 2011 5.0 45 ACP with a RecoilMaster or the newer 4.0 (or 4.4") Staccato P guns?

Yes, I know recoil is subjective, but I'm interested in your opinion, so that's why I'm asking.

On for the info. Great question kevh. I’ve shot the 45, and it was sweet. I prefer 5” guns in general, but my impression of the 5” in 45 was very favorable. I did not get much muzzle rise at all. Recoils seemed to push more straight rearward.

I never shot the new shorter ones.

Hi,
Well...Any 5" pistol is going to shoot "easier" than a 4"!
Can't really cheat nature and no free lunch.
My opinion, of course!
