I just purchased my first 2 STIs and coincidentally both showed up at my FFL on the same day, so I picked them both up Friday. I got one of the last Tactical HOST 4.0s with the treebark grip and I bought a NIB Staccato C with the single sided safety. I need to snap some pics. Anyway, how do you guys takedown the recoil master for cleaning and lubing? Do you use the supplied takedown tool? It seems to me as soon as I took off the slide, the whole recoil master system wanted to sort of just pop out the back and slip off the barrel sort of like the old 3rd gen S&W guns. Is is just as easy to depress the spring a little bit and just pull it out the back rather than pushing it all the way forward and snapping the takedown tool to the guide rod? It seems like if you don't keep the slide upside down, the springs want to pop out. Thanks all. PS: Now just some range time is needed to see how well they shoot.
