STI Barrels

Does anyone know how high you have to get in their product line to get a fitted barrel?

Inside STI: Shooting USA takes a closer look.: http://youtu.be/fPWt1-G2VYk

~9:25 into it they talk about barrel fitting.

Well, actually, it depends on what the standards are at STI at any given point in time. If my 2014 40 caliber is any indication, the standards are pretty low. They probably achieved three of the four elements. The fourth element, frame to ramp transition was not addressed. The transition there is the area responsible for whether the gun will run a magazine, provided no extractor, magazine or ammunition problems are present.

That's exactly what I was eluding to... I have a 2013 production 10mm that was set up to ride the link until it was fully in battery. The axle of the slide stop didn't touch the lower lugs of the barrel until it reached full lockup. It gave the pistol an over center feeling as you cycled the action. This issue has no easy fix. The lower lugs must be welded and the front radius recreated or a new barrel must be fit. A little disappointing for a $2400 pistol, to say the least.

I think it is pretty disappointing at any price over 950. I have two ramped barreled 1911 pistols, one each from two of the most subject to ridicule makers out there. One was a 550 pistol and one a 1000 dollar pistol. Still have one and a bud talked me out of the other. Both run like scalded dawgs.

If you are unhappy, and it sounds like you are, contact STI if you you haven't already. They typically go above and beyond to make the customer happy. You can also PM 'STI Rep' to get it moving.
