As I have transitioned to the 2011 platform with my first: the Staccato P, I have enjoyed shooting this Stac P more than any other platform I have owned and shot in the past. At this point, I am very anxious to get my next 2011 which will definitely be an STI! What has really captured my fancy is the DVC L; and more specifically the 2018 version of the DVC Limited in hard chrome with the gold/TiN barrel. What's got me concerned the most is the $1000 premium for the DVC vs the Staccato P and/or the upcoming Staccato L. Yes, I can see the lightening of the slide along with the fully adjustable rear sight. And the grip and magwell...... I'm hoping that those of you that own both can shed some hard core facts as to where/why this difference is justified. Thanks for any and all comments!
