    STI reputation

    I moved to Austin seven years ago and just realized STI International is located about 35 miles north of me. I visited their website and really liked their 1911s. Is STI considered a good manufacturer?

    Yes indeed. Of course according to some, all 1911's are unreliable and will get you killed (sooner or later)

    STI is a reliable manufacturer, and their guns are frequently used as the base for full-race competition guns. I see a number of them weekly at the steel matches I shoot, and I understand that they stand behind their guns if problems arise.

    Local shooting instructor swears by them. I trust his opinions on most things. I have limited experience with them.

    If I am not mistaken Tricolordad has an STI in .40 cal I think.

    I have a STI Trojan 5.0. Well made & reliable. This is getting close to a 'custom gun' without the crazy prices. I would not hesitate to purchase another one.

    That is one pretty 1911.

    It is a pretty good looking firearm. It doesn't get shot as often as some of my other 1911s, but it is the one that I keep in my go-bag, along with spare magazines & holster.
