    I don't believe it does.

    I often have wondered why people don't buy it over the TRP or the valor?

    The few I've seen were made extremely well.

    Straight from STI's website:

    "Q Does STI use any MIM parts?

    A
    Yes. We, like most manufacturers, do but not in any of the "critical" stress or wear components."

    Ya it doesnt really matter if they do or not. Even a lot of the semi customs use MIM on some of their models. Mainly the reason there cheaper, but there is good quality MIM and bad, Kimber=bad STI, WC, etc...=good. MIM parts cost 1/6 of the price of machined so that is kind of why you pay what you pay for a DW and also the difference in price between a CQB and Supergrade
