Looks like an STI build with many aftermarket parts used by USPSA shooters. Looks good. Don't know much about Triarc, but if you want a pre-packaged "customized" 2011 it seems like a viable option.

I think customized is personal so I'd rather do that myself and pick what i prefer.

Man I was so hoping you were going to chime in.....

I come from a long line of SACS guns and am thinking of pulling the trigger on one in 9MM commander/with rail.

Our sales rep has the full size with the full length dust cover and loves it. He also has a friend that has the one you are shopping for. Neither of them have had an issue with their guns other than the mags. They come with STI mags and he's had several occasions where he's dropped mags and the takedown pin in the floor plate hits a rock and the mag flies apart. He recommends either not doing that or getting some MDX mags. Me personally...I don't drop a $50 mag in gravel. (just a simple rule I follow, like avoiding driving my Hellcat in a snowstorm)

I've inspected several Triarc 2011s fairly closely but wasn't able to take them apart. The barrels are not Baer or SA Pro hard fit but they are not "production loose" either. The barrel fit seemed comparable to that of Infinity or other premium 1911 shops, no slop but not "dear God will this thing ever come out of battery" tight.

I love the look of their guns and would enjoy having one, but that's a lot of coin for me to drop on something that has so little feedback floating around out there.

I was interested in their Tri-11 commander with the slide milled for the RMR mounting plate. However, I ended up passing on Tri-11 since I couldn’t justify spending close to an extra thousand dollars on the gun when the STI Staccato P DOU met my needs.

Now, maybe if I’d found one in person at a gun store to hold in my hands to check out or if I had found an actual review of them and not just cool pictures online I could see why they’re a thousand dollars more.
