STI‘s VIP model is a double-stack 1911 chambered in 9mm, .40 SW or .45 ACP. Due to overwhelming customer requests, STI has brought back the VIP. Built on a patented modular frame design with a reduced length polymer grip, the VIP delivers the advantages of a high capacity firearm configuration well-suited for conceal carry circumstances.
The frame is constructed of highly durable 7075 aerospace grade aluminum to keep the weight of the pistol to a minimal 25 oz. The frame is also available in 4140 maxxell alloy steel (which comes in at 29.7 oz).
The VIP carries a stainless steel scalloped slide with rear cocking serrations, an STI dovetail front sight and a Heinie fixed rear sight. The slide is also available in 4140 carbon steel. The VIP comes standard with features such as a stainless steel STI hi-ride grip safety, stainless steel STI single sided thumb safety and an STI stainless steel fully supported, ramped bull barrel.
