    I finally received my SVI Tiki today after a LONGGGG holiday weekend wait! Paperwork filled out Friday- FFL closed Sun. and Monday.

    It is unfired, but I am the second owner. It is just beautiful- the sight picture will take some getting used to, as 2 tritiums are located on the back of the slide, and 2 are located on the front side of the slide (in the recessed channel). A groove also spans the length of the top of the slide and barrel. The slide to frame fit is tight, and very smooth. Very little creep in the trigger, and a crisp break at approx. 4.5#. I'll provide a range report in a couple weeks, I won't be anywhere near a range for a while due to other obligations :-(

    :rofl:

    Since he's the second owner, I'm wondering if he knows whether or not it has that setup. Its a hell of a system, as you know. ;)

    Color me very jealous. Very nice. I don't know if I could ever justify the asking price for a TIKI, but some sort of SVI is definitely on my short list of 1911s to own.

    Oh and I think we need more pics...many more lol.
