Last week I had a chance to run into an old friend of mine at a training. He happened to be wearing his new duty weapon: The STI Staccato-P 1911 style of 1911. Not being up on STI guns in general and this model in particular, I thought it was a good time to snap some pictures.
The pistol is pretty trick from what I can tell:
- 20+1 capacity.
- G10 style grips.
- Light rail.
- RDS with BUIS.
- Front cocking serrations.
Not having fired the gun, I can’t say how it shoots. But it seems VERY comfortable in the hand. More so than I would have thought with that double stack mag. Obviously being in 9mm, instead of 45, makes a huge difference here.
About 10 years ago, you couldn’t hardly get 1911 manufactures to make 9mm 1911s for duty use. The high-cap polymers dominated. But I have to say, it appears the 1911-mafia is working their way back into the duty holsters.
Perhaps I’ll get a chance to shoot this one day?
