The Executive



Integrating STI’s 2011® technology with classic 1911 design, the STI Executive is a high capacity pistol that carries John Browning’s design into the 21st Century.

Based on our legendary Edge model and built on the 2011® modular steel frame with polymer grip, the Executive delivers the traditional features of a 1911 and allows the added benefit of high capacity magazines. The innovative frame design preserves the 17° angle of the grip in relation to the slide, original to the 1911. The essential design element for high capacity, the polymer grip, allows for double stack magazines without over-sizing the circumference of the grip, which remains comparatively the same as the circumference of a 1911.

True to 1911 tradition, the Executive has a unique full length slide with front and rear cocking serrations, Dawson fiber optic (.100) front sight for quicker target acquisition, and an STI adjustable rear sight. The Executive comes standard with features such as a stainless steel STI knuckle relief hi-ride grip safety, stainless steel STI ambi-thumb safeties, and an STI stainless steel fully supported ramped bull barrel. The Executive comes hard chromed, so not only is it the most accurate and reliable handgun on the market, it is now one of the most beautiful.

The Executive ships with one 126mm 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.
