Our Assessment: The 1911 and 1911-A1 pistols served the military of the United States from 1911 to 1985, through two World Wars and the Korean and Vietnam wars. They gained a reputation as a reliable handgun with plenty of stopping power, and are held in high regard by those who have used them. The design is one of the most beloved and has gone through many design changes such as modular frames like this STI Staccato-C. The Staccato-C was introduced in 2018 in 9mm and features Dawson Precision sights, a 2011 single stack modular grip, 3.9” bull barrel, railed aluminum frame, the recoil master system, skeletonized hammer & trigger, ambidextrous safeties, an indexing bump beavertail safety, and forward & rear slide serrations. This one has been kept in beautiful condition by a previous owner and does not look like it has seen mush use at all, plus it comes with a host of factory accessories! This would make a great shooter, concealed carry gun, or just a simple plinker for those who only want the best. Considering that they were discontinued in 2019 you should consider dropping a bid on this STI! Please see our photos and good luck!
