    I’m interested, is the 9mm the one to get?

    The Staccato P only comes in 9mm.

    STI lists the Staccato-P as being available in 45 as well as 9mm on their website, but I feel like getting the pistol in 45 defeats half the reason for the pistol to exist in the first place.

But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    I got my Staccato P Duo yesterday. I'm waiting through my 10 business day waiting period...

    I have 3 1911s (a Garthwaite 10mm, a Dan Wesson Commander in 10mm, and a Wilson Combat Hunter in 10mm). So I am not an expert in them at all, but I'm not a complete newbie either.

    First impressions:

    1) It feels tight and right but not too tight.
    2) Trigger is great. Not to light. Short reset. Really good.
    3) Generally, the gun is smaller than I thought it was. Without the mag well, its actually pretty compact.

    Yam talks about a soft roll of new features. My gun has the new gen 2 grip. Cosmetically I prefer the older scalloped grip, but its not that big a deal. Apparently this has some advantages.

    I will absolutely go for the lowered mounting plate and sights when they arrive. I'd also like a night sight in the front. I ordered 12 magazines, and a 508T. So late November is going to be fun.

    If a large number of people are willing to kill you for saying something, then it probably really needs to be said. .

    I have to admit that I'm curious what people are carrying their Staccatos in.

    For reasons.

    STI is doing a live chat thing on FaceBook, right now, and apparently the thinner plate for the RMR is now no longer a thing. Apparently STI was unhappy with the amount of flex the thinner plate would induce.

    Is there a reason other than modularity for using plates? Seems to me that burying the RDS as low as possible into the slide and reducing potential points of failure would be a better way to go?

    Need for plate? Yes.

    Not enough meat in the slide, nor wide enough to MRDS directly to it.
    Also would like the pins/pillars which mounts/plate have that prevent shearing the RD screws.

    The plate is an adapter for mounting the Trijicon RMR. I think the slide is machined to direct mount the Leupold DPP.

    There is a mount/plate for the Leupold DPP as well.
