The only problem I had was that the mag release button: if i pressed it hard, the mag would fall half way and stop because the release overtraveled and acted like a brake.

To update everyone on the problem Wild Bill was having with the grip. He took the pistol to the SHOT show and STI replaced the grip with a new grip. The one Wild Bill had was defective, I guess his was a little soft. ops:
If you are having the same problem...you know what to do.

Most often see this problem with those who have chosen to go with the Roupe Grip, or a modification like it. Good mod, but the problem can be that some material is removed from the grip frame, taking away from rigidity and structural integrity.
But why you gripping it sooooo hard in the first place?

Wild Bill is used to hammering stuff and using his hands. It will give a guy a pretty good grip.
I still think he was griping too hard, but that is the way he shoots.
I have the Roupe grips and after I read your post, I tried it. Nope, I can't make them bend or give. I'll keep them away form Wild Bill.
