With the GP5, STI International, Inc. has taken its GP6 model and made it even more suitable for concealed carry by shortening the slide and barrel. Built on a lightweight, durable polymer (Polyamide GF 30) frame, the GP5 incorporates integrated tactical rails and textured side panels and front and rear straps. The GP5’s all steel slide is tri-topped with front and rear cocking serrations and features a fixed three-dot sight system.
The controls consist of ambi-thumb safeties, an ambi–slide release and a user configurable magazine release for equal ease of use in either right- or left-hand configuration. The barrel measures 3.25″ long and features a rotational lock-up system. Long term durability testing units have fired more than 110,000 shots without any change in internal geometry.
The GP5 comes standard with a storage case, two magazines and three interchangeable backstraps.
