STI Duty One 9mm

This is my new toy. Worked over by ACS (aka Asian Custom Shop).

Some insights from stock:

The disco is really nicely polished for a smooth contact to the trigger bow. Sear is cut w/ a relief angle and has great contact w/ the hammer hook. Ignition breaks pretty crisp. A little too much pre-travel on the trigger. But nothing a new flat trigger won't solve.

Slide and frame fitment is superb. Tight and slides very smooth. No vertical nor horizontal play. It's as tight as any of the "high-end" 1911s that I've handled. The blending on the back end is nice between the slide/frame/extractor/ejector/BTGS. All pretty seamless.

Barrel lock sup pretty tight. No bouncing. The stock bushing is a little loose on the barrel, but tight on the slide. It wasn't a problem for me, since I had the intention of replacing the Recoil Master with a spare set of EGW Monogram barrel bushing and plug. The OD and ID of the EGW bushing needed fitting to both the slide and barrel. This guarantees a solid lock up. I had it Baer tight, and the gun had issues with completely RTB. So a little mix of bore paste and oil, and polishing did the job. The barrel has Wilson/Nowlin style ramped.

I'm really liking the 30LPI FSC. Provides nice grip texture w/o being too intrusive. I've replaced the plastic MSH w/ an aluminum, matching, 30LPI from NHC. It's actually a nice MSH, since it's taller and close up the gap between the MSH and BTGS.

The high cut front strap let the pistol sit further down into your hand.

The pistol just feels SOLID! It's becoming one of my favorite. I've also added a Wilson FO front sight, which makes a great sight picture.

Here it is, laying around with it's sibling, the 45ACP version.

This is from 7-yards, free-hand, 9 rounds.

Ran 100 rounds of Federal FMJs thru her w/o any issues. And also ran a full mag of Hornady Critical Duty JHPs 135gr thru her w/o a hick up. This also included limp-wristing the gun w/ one hand, on the Hornady, and it ran like a CHAMP!

Thanks. No, the pistol that you had passed up is its 45ACP "bigger" sibling. The one that's in the foreground, in the family picture.

I liked that so much, I bought the 9mm.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for rail 1911s.

Nice gun, I have one in .45.

Unfortunately the rail is poorly designed. You will be able to pull your TLR-1 off the rail easily unless you crank down the screw far tighter than it was designed to be tightened.

THanks guys. I do like the 45 version as well. It's as nice of a shooter as its smaller brother 9mm.
