Hopefully they get you sorted out quickly, I'm thinking of getting some type of STI myself but can't quite decide what I want.
Thanks for well-wishes....What caliber are you looking for? If 45, they have a newer comped model (I may wind up with its slide on top of mine :-))...If 9mm, depending what you will do with the gun (assuming you like your 45's for carry), you can even look at the Wather Q5-Match-Steel. Did I just say that on the STI forum ;-)? The Q5's are great shooters and have won championships, Steel should just make them even better shooters (only ~1500$).

It is a wonderful feeling when it is on the way back :-)...They are 1 week with mine, if I don't hear from the smith by next Friday (if they are even open TGVN+1), I'll call them ~ 12/4, that will be 3 weeks with them having the gun. Not necessarily expecting it to be finished by then, but I would expect them to tell me how it will be fixed after 3 weeks in their lap.
