I've really liked the triggers on the 1911s that I've fired, but there's something about the single stack that has kept me away. 1911's are fantastic, but there's a reason Browning went on to create the doublestack. It was a serious step forward. Maybe think of it this way: If the only handguns people owned were 1911s then no one would care about the CA magazine size law.
So I just ran across the STI double stack '2011'. (STI Guns
) I'm thinking of buying one, but it will have to be without firing at a range ahead of time. I'll have to drive a couple of hours just to get to a dealer that stocks them.
I'm happy to pay $2000 for a gun; but I'll be annoyed if I pay $2000 for a gun I don't like. Any hands on experience and comments? Comparisons to other single stack 1911's? If I like a 1911, am I going to like the STI doublestack?
