    None of the 2011's have polymer frames. Many if not most have plastic grips, but the frames are steel or aluminium. The assembly with the rails is the frame, the lower section bolted onto that is the grip.
    Welcome to Africa, bring a hardhat.

    I cannot speak for STI, or any widebody .45ACP pistols, but this SVI Infinity is my all-purpose go-to handgun, except for deep concealment.

    I have owned a couple STI guns over the years. I currently only own one 1911 and it is an STI Ranger II 45ACP and I will never let it go. I have never had an issue with it. I would get another STI for sure. The Podcast was interesting for sure and worth listening to.

    After listening to the podcast I'm really interested in the Staccato P Duo. I'm still concerned about their customer service. They've had my DVC Limited for almost 4 months for a broken grip safety with very little communication. That would be an unacceptable downtime for a duty weapon.

    STI is stepping up their marketing to the tactical market, which explains why my IG feed is now full of STI tags.

    https://stiguns.com/tactical-team-2011/

    Donít think many of the guys in the page above were shooting STIs 5 or 6 months ago (based on my observation from IG.)

    (Before someone gets their jimmies in a bunch, that some or most of those guys werenít shooting STIs previously in and of itself doesnt say anything about STI.)

    Same. I sent Buck an email inquiring about LE prices on the Staccato P and P Duo. I'm intrigued....

    Mine should be arriving any day. I'll let you know how it does; don't know if I'm gonna do the 2000 round challenge, though.

    Kyle,

    Buck is usually pretty good about getting back to folks. The price is 15% off MSRP and you can order 2 per year. If you want to PM me your email I can forward you the order form.
