Re-name the company after the latest pistol line? Nope, don't like it.
The STI name has a good history and positive overall public image. Sure there have been challenges, but overall good. Why throw that away (along with competition market share) for a new unrecognized name?
Legal/financial reasons?

It seems Westwind Investors wants to morph into primarily a tactical/duty version of SVI.
Maybe low margin public sector contracts mixed with high margin private sector sales is the answer to long term survival? IDK, but I don't like it and I don't perceive stability.
