You just claimed that an "out of the box STI" 1911, is not an accurate firearm?!? Do you know ANYTHING about STI International at all?

My experience with a 1911 told me that its an outdated design , therefore it needs to be modified to make it better . My brother has a custom 1911 that cost about $1200 to build 20 years ago , that gun is very accurate .
My point is , why not just buy an accurate gun from the get go and avoid additional expenses ? I have an H&K that is stock and is dead accurate .

Stan, you got to try my Kimber custom that I bought years ago some time. Very accurate, just has the trigger done and the ramp polished, all stock other wise.

My point..... All designs evolve over time and comparing something evolved to the original design will often end with criticism of the original. The original 1911 was built around reliability, not precision.

Now guns come with reliability and precision with modern design . I just dont care much for a 1911, I guess .

I agree, but modern design still evolved from somewhere. And at some point the 1911 is on the ground floor. The 1911 isn't for everyone... But something must be right if it's survived 100 years.

I think it survives because some people love it , like H-D, nothing wrong with it , just not for me .

I shot many modern guns, but at this time, my STI Spartan is my favorite by far! no modern design can replicate the trigger feel of 1911.

the trigger is fantastic, accuracy is great, the gun is tight and feels very modern

few years ago I shot some 1911s and did not care for them, - actually, couple Kimbers

45 inaccurate? I just finished my CCW qualification with 90 out of 100 rounds within a 4 inch grouping using a Kimber Stainless Ultra Raptor II from the custom shop. Yep, right from the factory.
