2011 Pistols. Which ones and why

I recently took a class from Drew Estell from The Legion. he was shooting his shiny new STI Stacatto P and it was bad ass. So, yes I bought one at a great price. But despite the price, they are not without issue. You have to break them in to get them to lock back to the rear. Any way there are other manufacturers out there. Which ones do you have or want and why.

Guys, we have a 1911 thread, 2011's back on track.

Top, My Stacatto P is so smooth from the shop that it doesn't need broken in.

I'm confused. What's the difference between a 1911 and 2011 pistol?

Nice TFG. I’m waiting to take a look at the new Staccato C2 which should be the Commander length in 2011. Last year it was a single stack.

Cool. Never heard of a new 2011 pistol. Guess as much as thing change, they really never do.

Proves that Starship Troopers will still be firing bullpup Mini-14's outfitted with M60 flash suppressors at marauding bugs in the far future interstellar bug wars.

After hearing about the 2011's, I started looking into these suckers. They are pricey, however seem to be worth it. Wondering if/when the price will drop when they "catch on".

Regardless, curious about the sights (front fiber optic) and the rear. Have not had much shot group luck with FO sites, perhaps just not used to them (I think it is age/eyesight related perhaps). Interested in the no break in. Lastly, given it's barrel length, I am assuming you would not consider this a carry?

Hope my questions are not too rudimentary.

Catch on? They’ve dominated the competitive shooting world for over 20 years. STIs are quality guns. Quality costs money. $2500-4K for a quality 1911/2011 is about par.

I've got an STI Tactical Lite 4.0 and love it. I changed out the original grip panel and replaced with a tree-bark grip. My only complaint are that magazines are expensive, and that grip cost me $150 used...for plastic.

Runs like a top and is very flat shooting. I considered a Staccato P, but I picked this one up new for just over $1500 and IMO is pretty much the same thing...

STI Staccato

I've been looking at picking up an STI Staccato P. It's a substantial investment. Does anyone here have one?

Mike Pannone one of the instructors I hold in high regard has just switched to the Staccato P. He has posted that he ran thousands of rounds through it without a hiccup. Hilton Yam has also reported high reliability and accuracy.

This gun seems like a winner to me. Any thoughts or experiences?

I saw one last week. They were discounting the old single stack Stacatto C to make room for the new ones.

I like a fiber optic sight. I would prefer green over red. I have seen some green FO fronts on Stacatto pistols. Maybe I can switch them out. The actions are all hand fit and the frames are polymer / Aluminum. They come with all of the accouterments like a mag well, ambi safety, accessory rail etc.

Here is a small shop gunsmith tat describes how they are built in a 56 part series. (OK, maybe not 56.....)

Heard STI's director of LEO/Mil sales on a podcast. I seem to remember him saying they have really significant discounts for LEO's and retired Military. Since I am neither I stopped listening and don't remember the details. Might be worth a phone call for some that are interested and qualify.

The Green truglo fiber optic sights I ha e put on all my Glocks have turned out to be the easiest sights for my aging eyes to see.
