Been looking in the crystal ball lately. There's definitely an STI in my future, only I'm not quite sure which one. I'm leaning toward the Edge, but the longer sight radius of the Eagle 6.0 makes it an attractive alternative as well.

I currently shoot L10 and Production, but want to add Limited to the bag.

Any thoughts? Which one would you go for?

I went for an Edge from Dave Dawson. I'd do it again.

If I were going for the 6" I'd get the "fat free" gun from Benny Hill (built on the 2011 frame). It weighs the same as a standard 5".

So...with weight not being a factor......just answer how much sight radius matters to you.

How long have you been shooting L10 and production. Whats your set up for them now? That would factor in a lot on what limited gun I got. I light a medium wieght gun myself.

I took the plunge, boys. I finally got it. An Edge 40. Blue. Gun and four 140mm mags for $2100. Lessee how she does at the IPSC on the 20th. Wish me luck.

Congrats. If you load you own ammo, remember that the Edge likes it's ammo long 1.18+ OAL.

Good choice. I've had an Edge in 40S&W for nearly 10 years and it's a great gun. As someone mentioned, it likes rounds on the long side, I load mine 1.2OAL.
