Built for Shooters.  Made in the USA.

STI is the Texas based handgun company whose founders invented the 2011®. Developed for competition shooters seeking mastery of their sport, the 2011® evolves Browning’s classic 1911 design by combining a modular metal frame with a polymer grip to absorb and disperse recoil as well as reduce weight.  Over the past 25 years, STI 2011® pistols have won thousands of World, National, Regional and State competitions in the hands of the Best Shooters in the World.  Today, we make a 2011® for all skill level shooters and for duty, defense, and competition so that everyone can experience the exhilaration of shooting excellence.

Every STI 2011® incorporates FlaTec™, our flat shooting technology which combines proprietary design and craftsmanship, superior materials, and our recoil absorbing grip and 2011® frame.  The result is less recoil transferred to the shooter leading to faster and more accurate shooting which is why top competitors and elite law enforcement agencies are selecting our 2011® as their pistol of choice.
