Sti Trojan 9mm vs Dan Wesson Pointman 9




I know that Dan Wesson had discontinued the Pointman 9 however the Pointman 9 is what I have wanted to purchase the last couple of years but was not able to locate one. Now that they are discontinued locating one will be more challenging and if I find one I am afraid of what the price will be. Detailed information about the types of parts STI uses is limited however I have always heard about their quality. How would these two compare fit, function, accuracy, trigger pull, and quality of parts used. I would appreciate any imput you could offer to help my evaluation. Thank you.

No experience with the STI, but the PM9 is worth looking into. If you can find one.

Once broken in, mine is very smooth, and reliable. I did add a S&A magwell. The trigger is quite nice. Very accurate. They only thing I would consider, is maybe replacing the fibre optic front sight with a gold bead.

I really can't figure out why they stopped making them. And, I don't think I've seen one for sale in maybe 8 or more months.

I don't have a PM9, but I do have a Valor and a CBOB so I think I can attest to the Dan Wesson quality.

That said, I currently have 3 STIs, one of them being a Trojan 9mm. STI makes a high quality pistol. I am quite certain they manufacture their own parts.

I wouldn't rate the Trojan quite as high as I would my Dan Wessons, but it is pretty darn close.

My 9mm Trojan is extremely accurate and fun to shoot. I highly recommend one.

He certainly is proud of that baby! Wilson combat makes a 9, it is a 16 + 1 polymer framed 29 oz. Gun for $2195.00. Maybe you should check them out. You could also buy a 9mm Colt Commander and have $1500.00 worth of customizing done to it for that kind of money.

You are right, the new price should be around $1200.
