Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The rear sight blade is big and serrated to cut glare. It offered the best sight picture of the bunch, in our view.
The STI's thin grips are best for shooters with small or fleshy hands.
The pistol breaks down through the use of a slave pin, not a bushing wrench— very unusual for a 1911 single stack.
The STI's thin mag well and thin mag makes for slower reloads than the double stack designs on the other guns. Supplied mags are 7-rounders by Metalform, but 8- and 10-rounds mags are widely available.
