So this might be a stupid question, but I've only ever carried SA/DA guns with a decocker or striker fired guns, and I'll be going to look at a Staccato this weekend with the intent to buy, so I might as well ask people that have carried them:

Should I be concerned at all with the ambi safety having the risk of clicking off when I carry AIWB if I bump up against something or whatever, or am I just over thinking this?

I carried a 1911 on duty for several years and have qualified with my STI for duty use. I do not and have not had any issues with a ambi safety. I know it has been reported that some right side levers of the other manufactures ambi's breaking but I have never personal experienced this. I can use a single side safety but I can use the ambi quicker and more proficiently if that makes sense.

The ambi-safteties click very positively. I do not think it is easy to click off my bumping into something. You always have the grip safety as insurance. I would practice checking it through your shirt if that gives you "peace of mind". I check mine whenever I have an opportunity, as well as dot brightness when I change lighting conditions.

OK, I have the new plate. The CH plate requires a new front sight due to the lower then OEM plate.

Had some issues with my gun...

Towards the end of the range session I went from Win 115 and had some malfunctions and then switched to PMC 115. Had +30 repeatable FTE ejects. As I got my carbon and heat in to the gun it got worse and worse.

No worries, sending it back to Staccato under warranty. Leaving it as is due to wanting them to observe it and feel the drag that is now felt while manipulating the slide.

I beleive it is due to poor barrel fit, either at the lugs or at the barrel end. Significant amount of scratches along the chamber (were it shouldnt be) and were the barrel engages the slide.

Sorry to hear this - please let us know what STI says.

Pistol is with STI. I'm curious what they find. Might be a slide fit or barrel fit issue. Who knows. While I did modify the trigger and grip, none of that should have affected the function of the gun in the way that it was.

Took the plunge and picked up a staccato p duo. I’ve only one 1 1911 previously (sig tacops). Did not like it and traded it off but this piece of machinery is here to stay. 170 rounds on initial firing, installed the type 1 rmr off of a g19 build. Didn’t have to make any adjustments as it was dead nuts at 10 yards. Went to 25 and was way left for some reason. This morning I was dry firing and noticed the dot windage was far left. Adjusted it, put it down and checked again. Shifted left yet again. Took the type 2 off my 509 tac and will see how that goes. Like this platform a lot and will have to work hard to break out the glock and how again. Don’t know why the pic orientation is off

Have you received an update from STI? Defenitely would like to hear what the issue was.

What is the current go-to AIWB holster for a Staccato C2 with a TLR-7A? I have a JMCK that should work when I mount an X300 (it worked great with my 2019 -P), but looking for lower profile options.

Right now I'm seeing Blackpoint DualPoint and LAS Sayo as my main options for AIWB and that light combo.
