“Officer Mike”, has let us borrow this STI 2011 pistol. This is a double stack 9mm with a huge muzzle break on it.
Frankly, not sure what I think about this gun. But it’s growing on me. 9mm 1911s are already weakly sprung. One with a big muzzle break on it, even less so.
With that in mind, working the pistol by hand; I question the wisdom of that choice. And the utility of it’s implementation beyond a square range.
“Will this thing even run?”, I ask?
The answer is yes. And gosh darn! It passed the 10-8 test! Without even being through it’s recommended factory break-in!
Wow. I am truly stunned.
Even if I never “get it” when it comes to these guns? There is now ZERO doubt that somebody over at STI put in the work fitting and tuning this thing.
“Am I a convert”, you ask? No. But they have earned the benefit of the doubt this day. Until it chokes at least. And it will. Like I said, it’s too weakly sprung. So savor that victory, STI.
All glory is fleeting…
