    I had one. The frame cracked at the beavertail all the way down to the mag release. STI replaced it with a new gun. 192 rds later, the new gun went into DAO mode. Called STI and decided to trade up for a Trojan in 9mm. When they get the bugs worked out of em', they will be a winner. I really liked the way the gun felt in my hand (very CZish) and like the way the gun recoiled (rotating barrel)Gun was very quick back on target. Give it another year and they will be good to go.

    Hey DaG.

    How do you like the Trojan in 9mm? Is it reliable? Are magazines available and is the gun sensitive to case OAL or bullet shape?

    Any details would be appreciated.

    The Trojan is the cat's a#$!! The mags that come with it are Metalform 9rd. Mine have been flawless. I have 7 since I traded my GP6 mags in. I also have 3 Wilson ETM 10 rd. mags. They also are flawless. I run Valiant 125 LRN @ 1.095 and have not had any feeding issues. The gun is VERY accurate. At 15 yds, mine will rip one ragged, 10 shot hole. Of course this was with Jason Edwards shooting it!! It's definately an ESP/Single Stack racegun. The trigger is a little rough (4.75 lbs) from the factory but it's starting to come in a little bit better. You definately need to replace the recoil spring with something in the 10 lb range. The factory is too heavy IMO. Sights are STI Adjustable with plain black front. Pretty much it's a custom gun at factory production gun price. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the detailed review. I may have to break down and buy one. Very Happy
