STI The Spartan V 8+1 45ACP 5.11"
by Kevin G Date Added: Tuesday 07 June, 2011
Just picked up my Spartan from my FFL yesterday 6/6/11. The gun seems to be a very good quality weapon. I had read on the internet that many people felt that the Spartan was the best 1911 buy on the market. I have not yet shot it but I cleaned it when I got it home last night. It seemed a little coarse on the action but after cleaning it and oiling it the slide to frame friction is glass smooth. Trigger pull is a little heavy but I may end up carrying this gun so thats ok. There is a microscopic amount of creep in the trigger and just a small amount of takeup. I can't wait to get this to the range to see what it will do on paper and to check function. Anyone considering a Taurus should definately get a Spartan instead, unless you need the ambi safety. First purchase from Buds but not the last. Thanks
