Although availability can be a problem, (I waited for @ 3 months) I love my STI. Sweet trigger right out of the box. Mine is the .45, but I have a friend with a 9mm.

I really like the Rock Island 9mm. A couple of my friends own them. They are fun to shoot. But when I search for magazines and accessories I find zilch, nada, nothing.

My gunsmith got stuck with a Rock Island model 200. He was trying to sell it for $200. The thing has grown on him. Now it's not for sale. It is somewhere in his reach all the time. I was real tempted to buy it but I don't want to have to start keeping 38 ammo on hand. The 38 is so close to the 9mm I can't justify adding one to my collection. I have a 38 Diamondback I never shoot for that very reason.

Tripp Cobra makes great 9 mm magazines. Tripp mags. Work in both my Colt and my RIA 9mm 1911.
