    STI Guardian 2011

    STI Guardian 2011

    STI International, Inc. introduced the Guardian 2011 this year. The gun takes the existing Guardian pistol from the 1911 platform and moves it to the 2011 for shooters wanting a little more ammo on tap.

    STI builds 1911 style handguns in two flavors: the traditional single stack models (their 1911 line) and wide body models (the company’s 2011 line). Previously, the Guardian was built only on a 1911 frame. The new model is built on the modern aluminum frame that takes double stack magazines without adding too much bulk.

    The Guardian 2011 is chambered only in 9mm and ships with a single 120mm magazine that will hold 15 rounds of the .355 caliber ammunition. This version of the gun has a 3.9″ bull barrel. The stainless slide is paired with the Cerakote finished black frame for a nice two tone effect. STI uses VIP black grips.

    The thumb safety is left side only. According to the company, the trigger pull weight ships at between 4 – 5 pounds. On top, STI uses a white dot front sight and a TAS two dot white sight on back. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price on this pistol is $1,899.

    Also this year, STI International introduced the Hex Tactical pistols. Those pistols are larger guns chambered for both 9mm and .45 ACP and are available in both frame types.

      Anyone interested in this pistol should really look at the Costa version of it. Very nice pistol.

        Those are good looking pistols. STI has a nice lineup, expensive but worth it from what I hear.

        The one with the comp? That looks like a good one too.

          Question for any STI owners. Other than .45, it looks like the minimum mag capacity is greater than 10 on the 2011 line. Do they have 10 round 2011 mags or would we have to get them blocked (can we?)? Does the 2011 have other advantages other than mag capacity over their 1911's.

            The Costa guns we have in stock do not have the comp. And they make 10 round magazines for the 2011 frame.

            The feel is very different, it fills the hand more than a 1911.
