For more than 25 years, STI manufactured hybrid pistols of the Browning M1911 design, only now STI is rebranded under the Staccato name and continues its business commercially manufacturing semi-automatic handguns. It P series 9 mm is a continuation of the company’s flagship duty gun.

The Staccato P is a feature-rich pistol and ships with magazines that have capacity for 17 and 20 rounds of 9 mm, which is a divergence from Browning’s original pistol. Staccato achieves this increased storage by its 2011 frame that incorporates a “blended polymer grip.” This gives the 2011 design the strength and durability of a metal-framed handgun while also providing the benefits of a polymer grip face, which include improved ergonomics and texturing.

You’ll also find that the Staccato P offers an incredibly crisp 4-lb. trigger, along with ambidextrous safety levers, an extended beavertail grip safety, a fiber-optic front sight and the company’s TAS II rear sight, an adjustable unit that’s been contoured to eliminate sharp snag points.

This duty-ready handgun has been approved for use by more than 325 law-enforcement agencies, a testament to the gun’s success in duty evaluations. Staccato boasts that its P series design has never failed a law-enforcement test, and that includes drop safety, accuracy, reliability and endurance testing.
