Re: STI - Elektra
As an owner of several STI & SVI's, Dan Wesson and Kimber's are definately not made to the same quality.

Both STI and SVI sells all of the indiviual components to have custom 2011 and 1911's built by gunsmiths. SVI and SVI parts are generaly compatiable with each other. I have a 2011 that has a STI frame and every thing else is SVI.
I have seen very poor quality Dan Wesson's, especially their early 1911's. Kimber's early guns were better built than their current guns.
