STI has a pretty good reputation in the 1911 component market. I've seen them used mainly in competition guns, which I've kinda been out of for several years, but the folks I know who build guns based on STI components haven't been heard to squawk too much about them.

I would think that a fifteen-round 10mm oughtta do the job....providing you really wind up regularly carrying it. Sounds like a pretty heavy gun for daily CCW use but, then again, I've been told that I've become kind of a wimp in that regard (grin).

STI is great company, perhaps the best indication that they are still in the running and possibly leading the custom 1911 market is that I believe they were chosen as the parts supplier for the latest version of the .224 BOZ project by CDS.

Good Luck!
