@AJP is an amazing resource
no but thanks for letting me in on thatNo one told you that the 2 in 2011 means 2 times the price?
Don't take it from me, I only own a couple of lowly staccato's. I keep telling myself they're good enough so I don't go down the rabbit hole of Atlas, Vanta 9, MPA, GI, etc.no but thanks for letting me in on that
fortunately the swapping only goes on till i chose a final configurationGoing between grips/triggers may require tuning ignition parts. My experience so far:
- swapping in Extreme Shooters grip into STI Tactical (same trigger), no tuning was needed
- swapping in Extreme Shooters grip into a GI X2 (same trigger), tuning was required
So my thinking is swapping between different brands of grips is more likely to require tuning (since Extreme Shooters use STI grips). And swapping between 3-4 grips back and forth may require some dedicated ignition parts for each grip, especially if you are also swapping triggers.
I know others had smoother experiences here
I’m also looking forward to seeing if infinity Trigger/FCG is better in my XC(s) than the geppert/ Atlas FCG! I have a new to me XC in .45 that will be my next gun I modify!A Cheely E2 on an XC is a great combo that may lead to you parting ways with your Erebus. If you plan on carrying it the commander variant may make sense, though I tend to think that version is a little short on an XC. Personally I don't love the Extreme Shooters grips, and think for a reduction you get a far better product sending a grip to our own @Elusive .
The Gephart trigger should be fine, as would a Cheely, Red Dirt. The Fowler trigger is also an interesting option that would look good in an XC, it is just shorter than my preference, might work well for you though. I plan on giving the new Infinity trigger and fire control group for Staccatos a try in my XC, whenever Phoenix Trinity gets around to making more Evo grips...
I dont think it’s controversial, I think it’s a YMMV kind of thing! That’s what’s so great about 2011s, there are truly a lot of options!@MedicGunGuy was a great resource for me as well, I asked a lot of the same questions.
I went with @Elusive especially if you are considering sticking with a polymer grip, I also had the size reduction added and had a short flat geppert fit and it feels like a different gun to me.
For a more controversial point I personally feel a polymer grip reduces perceived recoil over metal grips. Also if you ever plan on carrying the gun the weight reduction will be appreciated. This is just my $.02 and it might not be worth that much.
The fact that you want a disabled grip safety would be reason enough to NOT do polymer for me. Yes I know they can be “pinned” but that’s a modification, where the cheely grips, both E2 and L2 were designed for this to be an option.All opinions are welcome
That’s my other fear “ feeling like a different gun”
I’d like the same gun with a slightly shorter trigger and easier to hide grip
