Originally designed both by and for the ladies, the STI Elektra is a compact aluminum framed pistol with everything anyone needs in a backup pistol along with the elegance to carry it with pride. When STI came up with its Shadow pistol, it received a very positive response, but some of the ladies at the factory wanted to do a version with more of a woman’s touch. Their discussions and suggestions led to the creation of the Elektra—a lightweight pistol that looks as good as it shoots.
The classic stainless steel slide measures 3″ long with Sabertooth rear cocking serrations and a standard STI oversized ejection port—all KG coated with the sides polished, creating a unique two-tone finish. The two-dot tritium night sights have been recessed into the slide and, along with the integral sight channel, provide a compromise between easy sight acquisition and snag-free carry.
The Elektra is built on a forged aluminum, STI officer-sized frame with a stippled front strap. The grip includes a flat checkered polymer mainspring housing configured to provide excellent retention. The pearlescent grips add to the distinct appearance of the pistol. The controls include STI’s stainless steel single-sided thumb safety and STI’s bobbed, high-rise, knuckle-relief beavertail grip safety.
The barrel is a 3″ fully supported STI ramped bull barrel. The STI Elektra comes standard with an STI RecoilMaster guide rod system, an STI commander hammer and the patented STI International trigger system.
