Combining the double stack capacity of its modular 2011® technology with the light weight benefits of aluminum, the V.I.P. is the best carry pistol on the market today.
Due to overwhelming customer requests, STI International, Inc. has brought back their popular V.I.P. model. Built on our modular frame design with a reduced length polymer grip, the VIP delivers the advantages of a high capacity firearm configuration that is well-suited for conceal carry circumstances. The frame is constructed of highly durable 7075 aerospace grade aluminum to keep the weight of the pistol to a minimal 25 oz. The frame is also available in 4140 maxxell alloy steel (which comes in at 29.7 oz)
The VIP has a stainless steel scalloped slide with rear cocking serrations, STI dovetail front sight and Heinie fixed rear sight. The slide is also available in 4140 carbon steel. The VIP comes standard with features such as a stainless steel STI hi-ride grip safety, stainless steel STI single sided thumb safety and an STI stainless steel fully supported, ramped bull barrel.
The STI VIP ships with one 120mm 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.
