View Full Version : STI SPARTAN - HOME TODAY! (pics)
20th April 2007, 13:44
Picked it up today. All I have done is clean it and change the grip pannels - Range results as soon as I can get to the range.
If the Spartan is the parrell pistol to the RIA Match, the Match comes with ambi safety - The Spartan has a SS barrel - Does the Match have SS barrel?
I will be interesting to get them side by side. But for now here is the SPARTAN!!!

Nice looking spartan longslide :D :D man now i really want one too :) How much? if you dont mind me asking just want to have an idea..

Thanks guys :D
I bought it from a private seller. He did not want it after he bought it! He left the orginal bill of sale in the case. It cost him $499.00 + taxes - He got it from Florida Gun Exchange. I paid him $550 shipped + 25 for my FFL.
It is NIB never fired - It is a fair price give that you can not find them around here.

that is sounds a good price to me, i check the gunsource.com they dont have it on their list of manufacturer..

Congrats on the Spartan ;) ! I hope everything checked out fine on it. Just to let you know, I bought the Spartan from SPA Shooter's Depot (http://www.spa-shootersdepot.com) at a gun show last month. They're one of the listed distributors on STI's website. I'm getting a Springfield Mil-Spec from Florida Gun Exchange. Let me know how she shoots.

He is the Spartan with some new grips!!! I have a NHC magwell comming for it soon to fit the flush cut grip pannels. On the way to the range today to test it out :D

Wow, those grips look great on it. I got my Mil-Spec over the weekend; I posted a pic and range report here (http://forum.m1911.org/showthread.php?t=29688).

Addition work in progress for the STI
Well since it is a target pistol I thought I would put some target grips on it!!
I also added a FUSION Mag well for it and tossed the PLASTIC MSH!!!
I plan on shooting it a lot so I wanted to protect the front stap from scratching. Maybe not as PRURTY but more functional.
man longslide you are just keep putting ideas in my head, i keep saying to myself, dont need any 1911 right now, not right now :nono: :nono: ...and then you post this pics :D :D ;)

Well I guess it is ok for us to --- buy and buy and buy some more. If you can not have a good time living - then where can you have a good time :confused: :D :confused: :D
So I say "well - all the bills are paid so why not!!!! I have A bumber sticker that says "HAY KIDS - I AM SPENDING YOUR INHERITANCE"
