Last night a good friend of mine offers me his almost new STI RANGER II .40 on a straight trade for a M&P .40 Compact, he says that he hates de STI because of the weight, he cannot carry all day long and the STI ends on a drawer. He will accept my M&P which is new and I never carried or use. What do you think of the Ranger? I really like it but I never had a .40 1911 is this gun reliable? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
