You own one? What are your initial impressions? Accuracy, reliability?

Once you buy it, find a load that it likes and shoot the snot out of it. Keep it well lubed for the 1st 500 rounds and do not clean it.

Like noted above, add lots of oil and run it hard.

And make sure all the shipping stuff that looks like oil (and isn't) gets cleaned off, and then re-oil it before you put 300 crazy-fun rounds through it.

Haha thanks, what the hell is that stuff smells like a stripping agent of some sort.

I have a bunch of freedommunitions 115gr and 124gr remans would there be one of these you suggest over the other?

It kinda likes 124..... I ran some Las Vegas ammo through it, and had feed problems on one 120 mm magazine.......I switched back to Federal, and haven't had any problems

Ordered the Dawson magazine tuning set, but haven't had a chance to do it.......been using the 140mm magazines, and they've been problem free...

I agree on the comment about the oil or whatever on the gun out of th box.....I've learned to take a shop towel with me when I pick up an STI......

Thanks for all the positive feedback, I need some help with a magazine dilemma I need 10rd magazines I am in CA and wanted to know if the 126mm 10rd magazines work?

Also in CA...... Kinda sucks from a 2nd amendment standpoint.... I would look at tuning your 10 round mags.....as I mentioned, the one I got from STI was hanging on light loads...... The other two not a problem....nor are my hi cap versions.

If you get a chance to have some 140mm mags sent to someone out of state, most clubs won't care if you use them....

The STI 126mm should work fine. Dawson Precision sells them.

Yeah that may have to be the route to go but it is kind of nutty that I have to spend 60 bucks on a magazine then have to tune it? lol oh well

I am not shooting light loads though they are factory remans, we'll have to see how this pans out. thanks again!

You dont have to spend money and time tuning the mags. If any of them dont run correctly, call sti. They will fix them for free. I have no idea why people spend a pile of time and money tuning mags when they have a lifetime warranty.

You may find that the mags are just fine. Maybe I've just been lucky, but I've got five 2011s in 9mm, .40, & .45 and haven't had issues with the mags straight from STI. The 9mm mags in particular have gotten a lot of use because that's what I shoot in competition. Other than putting in new springs as they've gotten older I've not done anything but clean them.

Any updates from the op on how this gun is running for you after almost a year? I ask as I am interested in one myself.

A late follow up......any additional input on these Marauders? Thinking of picking up one and replacing an AAC Nighthawk 9mm.

Would appreciate some reviews/comments.

I just picked one up, and I only have about 150 rounds through it. So far it's a really soft shooting pistol. Standing I can shoot a fist sized group at 25 yards. Mine fed just fine, with no magazine issues. Barrel is fitted pretty tight and engraved with the last few serial numbers so I assume was hand fitted to the gun.

I also have a commander Shadowhawk and I like it a lot. As far as the marauder replacing it, I don't think so. Both have their place. One is more easily concealable and thinner. The other has much better capacity. You have to decide which part is more important to you. Me personally I wouldn't replace it, I'd add to the collection.

Thanks TylerD.

The Marauder I am looking at has a threaded barrel so that's why I was thinking replacing the AAC. I also have a Wilson Spec Ops 9mm that is similar to the Marauder but not threaded......just trying to figure out how many I can shoot....

I understand and I go through the same dilemma. But if your NHC AAC hasn't failed you, doesn't have issues and you have the funds to do so I would hold on to it. I can only shoot one at a time as well however they all have their place and their own job. One may be better at a job than another, may perform better suppressed than the other etc.

I have an IWB holster and a case of ammo inbound so if you give me some time I'll see it how it works for me between work. Good luck with your decision!!!
