    Advise on STI LS40

    Last week a thread mentioned the STI LS models of handguns. I like custom pistols and this gun is certainly unique. I was in my local shop tonight and they just got a used LS40 as a trade in priced at $575. This was the first one I've handled, and it's in excelent condition.

    I already have a couple of handguns so I don't "need" it, but you know how it is.

    So my questions: Is the STI reliable? Does anyone own the .40 cal model? Finally, should I buy it?

    Buy it.

    at $575 if you find you don't like it you'll be able to sell it at a profit (even used they usually go for at least $700).

    STI simply DOES NOT MAKE JUNK.

    I tell you what, if you buy it and find you don't like it I'll trade you my Kahr MK9 Elite98 w/night sites for it.

    If you haven't bought it yet , why? there would have to be somthing really wrong with it to keep me from not buying.

    Thanks for the encouragement Zundfolge, that's a nice offer.

    There was nothing wrong that I could see. It caught me off guard and I hadn't intended to buy anything. I was there with my sons to use the firing range, so I was focused on my boys.

    One of the employees there has always been great to work with, and said he could set it aside for a day to let me decide. I really wanted to get some feedback from the forum since I am not familiar with the gun.

    Here's STI's page on the LS http://www.stiguns.com/guns/ls/ls.html

    there's links to several articles there (obviously they cherry picked them for good reviews, but there's some info there).
