STI Tactical 4.0 2011 - Limited gun

Recommended Posts

Build this gun about 3 years ago intending to shoot it in USPSA Limited division. Of course life gets in the way (new child, building house, etc.) and kept me out of the sport another couple of years.

Looking forward to shooting my first match in a decade next month.

With all the time on my hands working from home in this quarantine, I've taken some time to do some smithing on this guy. I've added a steel grip from Lonestar Innovations, EGW slide stop and Atlas gunworks thumb safety.

Glenn at LSI will mill your grip to your exact frame dimensions so fitting the grip was no problem. Only thing I had to do was lower the top of the inner grip bushing blocks to fully seat the grip.

Needed to do a little blending to the frame and I had some hotspots on the thumb safety and the weak hand side had a good bit of overhang. I did some contouring and it is MUCH better now. This grip feels perfect now.

I don't love the spolitchiness I got with the stainless blackening from Caswell but should be able to take care of it with another prep and treatment.

Got a much more even finish on the beavertail. FYI if you use the caswell stainless blackening I found it better to not wipe it down but to use a card to scrape the gel off then gently wipe and apply oil to penetrate. Finish matches the STI bluing perfectly.

Man that is sick!  Sometimes we just need to go over the top and you have definitely done that.  Very cool and different.
