For those competitors who demand the ultimate race pistol, STI International delivers with the STI GM. Incorporating unique features with STI’s 2011® technology and Trubor compensated barrel, the STI GM is a race ready factory pistol with custom pistol distinctiveness.
Originally only offered from the STI custom shop, the GM is now available as a standard model. Built on the STI Modular Steel 2011® frame with a blue polymer grip, the STI GM utilizes the Trubor compensated barrel which is machined from ONE PIECE of 416, Rifle Grade, Stainless Steel. The Trubor compensated barrel is designed to eliminate misalignment of the barrel and compensator bore or movement of the compensator along the barrel threads, giving the shooter a more consistent performance and reduced muzzle flip.
The GM slide has classic scalloped sides, STI saber-tooth rear cocking serrations, flat top and slide lightening along the rear of the slide. Additional enhancements include STI’s RecoilMaster guide rod system, STI stainless steel magwell, stainless steel ambidextrous safeties, stainless steel high rise grip safety, drilled and tapped mag release, and hard chrome finish with color inlay in the engraving. The GM comes complete with a mounted C-More Railway sight with blast shield. An STI team shirt, STI cap, and factory grouping target are also included with the GM.
Note on Ammo: The STI TruBor is designed and tuned for IPSC Major Power Factor grade ammunition. Factory .38 Super and .38 Super +P generally do not meet the minimum power and pressure levels required for proper operation of these competition grade firearms.

The GM ships with one 140mm 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.
