Originally designed both by and for the ladies, the STI Elektra is a compact aluminum framed pistol with everything anyone needs in a backup pistol along with the elegance to carry it with pride.
When STI came up with the Shadow, they received a very positive response but some of the ladies at the factory wanted to do a version with more of a woman’s touch. Their discussions and suggestions led to the creation of the Elektra- a light weight pistol that looks as good as it shoots. The resulting pistols can be carried by anyone with a more discriminating aesthetic.
The classic stainless steel slide is 3.0″ in length with Sabertooth rear cocking serrations & standard STI oversized ejection port- all Cerakoted with the sides polished, creating a unique two toned finish. The 2 dot tritium night sights have been recessed into the slide and, along with the integral sight channel, provide the perfect compromise between easy sight acquisition and snag free carry.
The STI Elektra is built on a forged aluminum STI officer sized frame with a stippled front strap. The grip includes a flat checkered polymer mainspring housing configured to provide excellent retention. The pearlescent grips add to the distinct appearance of the pistol. The controls are STI’s stainless steel single sided thumb safety and STI’s bobbed, high-rise, knuckle relief beavertail grip safety. The barrel is a 3.0″ fully supported STI ramped bull barrel. The STI Elektra comes standard with an STI RecoilMaster guide rod system, STI commander hammer, and patented STI International trigger system.
The STI Elektra ships with one Officers sized 1911 Magazine.

*STI is dedicated to ‘Continuing the Evolution of the 1911′ and we periodically implement ‘rolling changes’ to our product specs. While we do try to keep the website and catalog photos as current as possible, there is often a lag between an improvement being implemented and being reflected on our marketing materials. For this reason, all entries are representative only and subject to change without notice.
