While most wouldn’t point to STI as their chosen manufacturer for carry or defense firearms, the STI Tactical delivers in both of those categories. While it looks and acts like a 1911, it is really a 2011. This means that it is a doublestack variant of the classic design.
The Tactical also comes with two magazines of ten and eleven which is a great deal of firepower for any normal 1911. While it is a pricier selection, the STI Tactical delivers for its cost in power, accuracy, reliability, and capacity.
