STI 2011 Thread

Can anyone help me diagnose my Staccato P Duo? Specifically, I'm having a lot of FTE's with the occasional double feed. I've having these issues with or without a RMR mounted. The pistol is at 852 rounds now and it's getting worse, not better.

Specifically, I'm wanting to know if your extractor keeps a case flat against the breech face on a working model? Mine has a lot of play and the case can move out far enough to see daylight between the case head and the breech face. (see attached photo).

Things I've done:
  • Clean 5 times, trying two different lubes. ALG Purple Juice and Slip 2000
  • Ordered 2 new magazines to rule my magazines out.
  • Tried the following ammo: Speer Lawman 147gr, S&B 115gr, Speer Gold Dots both 124gr and 147gr.
  • Increased and decreased extractor tension while at the range trying different tensions, but receiving a malfunction on all of them.
  • Opened a warranty case with STI. After 4 days of no response, I called them and was told I'd be called back in a few minutes. That never happened. I'll follow up with them again Monday, but maybe there's something that's easy here that I don't know about in my ignorance.

The accuracy and performance of this handgun seems amazing, but it's gotta be reliable for me to keep it. Any ideas? I'm not a 1911 guy, so I'm out of ideas here.
take it to a gunsmith who can tinker around with it or follow up with the manufacturer..STI rep is on this site maybe he can help..

Followed up twice more with the manufacturer. They take my call, tell me I'll be called back and then don't. Basically I have a $2500 paperweight that can't get through 2 magazines without a malfunction.

A gunsmith might be the answer (although it shouldn't have to be since this thing supposedly has a lifetime warranty), although I've ordered an Aftec extractor and a new ejector, so I guess I'll at least try those before taking it somewhere. I tried a new STI extractor, but it only made it slightly better.

Yea i dont think STI is on the up n up about after purchase customer service definitely have heard some complaints..you might be on your own in that regard and getting warranty work done would likely take a very long time for them to even fix the issue..a gunsmith be your best immdediate bet..id just sell it if it can be fixed and buy a triarc personally..i can verify first hand their customer service, very reliable and on point

New to the forum. Lots of helpful info. Thank you, all. I’ve been eyeing a Staccato P DUO for some time. I found a very lightly used Scaccato P at my lgs and a.) it was a great deal and b.) the DUO models seem to be unobtanium atm so I went for it with the thought I could have the slide milled. I see the chambers plate is an aftermarket option but I’m curious if STI would perform the DUO cut as a custom shop job and/or it Dawson sells the Universal Optic plate a la carte. Thank you in advance for any info!

I've seen where people recommend Primary Machine and Nighthawk to do it. No direct experience yet, although Primary Machine has done several of my HK pistols in a superb manner. I now have a regular Staccato P, but not going to cut it until my Duo is back and confirmed working.
