The first 250 rounds went without a hiccup. This thing is a tack driver. I have a Dan Wesson CBOB as well and the STI is just that next level better. It's difficult to describe because the CBOB is a fantastic pistol, but this thing is amazing. I lusted after this STI for over a year and finally found one for a great price and I couldn't hold out any longer. There isn't any buyer's remorse in my house I can assure you.
I've done some more research tonight and the only knock I find on the STI's is the finish. I may have it coated or plated at some point, but for now, I'm just going to put rounds down range and enjoy it!!
I'll post more pics at some point but tomorrow she gets boxed up and sent to Fusion Firearms for a refinish in their Black Shield coating process. Their version of Melonite. Should be plenty tough and pretty enough when its done. If all goes well, I'll have it back before Christmas.
