Integrating patented 2011 technology with
classic 1911 design, the STI International Edge is a high capacity
pistol that carries John Browning?Ts design into the 21st Century.
Since its introduction in late 1997, the
STI Edge has become the undisputed standard for USPSA/IPSC Limited
Division competition shooting as demonstrated by Michael Voigt and Frank
Garcia finishing one/two as they led the US IPSC Limited Team to
victory at World Shoot XII. It has been adopted by SWAT teams, HRT
teams, street cops, and law enforcement training sites. It has been
embraced by almost all other shooting disciplines.
Built on the STI Modular Steel 2011®
frame with polymer grip, the Edge delivers the traditional features of a
1911 and allows the added benefit of high capacity magazines. The
innovative frame design preserves the 17° angle of the grip in relation
to the slide original to the 1911. The essential design element for high
capacity, the polymer grip, allows for double stack magazines without
over-sizing the circumference of the grip, which remains comparatively
the same as the circumference of a 1911.
True to 1911 tradition, the Edge has a
unique full length slide with front and rear cocking serrations, STI
dovetail front sight and STI adjustable rear sight. The Edge comes
standard with features such as a stainless steel STI knuckle relief
hi-ride grip safety and stainless steel STI ambi-thumb safeties. It
comes with an STI stainless steel fully supported, ramped bull barrel.
Not only is it the most accurate and reliable handgun on the market, it
is also one of the most beautiful.
