Dan Wesson Elite vs STI Grip
« on: June 25, 2017, 01:22:09 PM »
My understanding is that there are essentially 3 manufacturers of double-stack 1911/2011 receivers.

The Dan Wesson Elite series uses the Caspian frames (I am told).  And STI uses their own receiver + polymer grip.

I have read a number of times that the STI grips are more comfortable than the Caspian or the other double-stack 1911 receiver manufacturer that Para used -- BUL, I think. 

Has anyone here handled a Dan Wesson Elite series double-stack frame AND an STI frame and can comment on the difference?  I am just looking for opinions.  No science required.  ;)
