STI International has teamed up with self-defense and weapons training expert Chris Costa to design the new Costa series of pistols. The Costa Carry Comp features an island sight, which is attached to the barrel instead of the slide, with the compensator ahead of the front sight. This technology reduces muzzle jump, making it easy to stay focused on the front sight for follow up shots. The compensator reduces recoil by 63% and the gun uses the STI Recoil Master dual spring system to reduce recoil even further, making the Costa Carry Comp one of the smoothest shooting pistols on the market.
This model comes with 2 magazines, 126mm and 140mm, ambidextrous safety, full length tactical rail and STI's lifetime warranty, and non engraved sleek slide. The BBL is 4.15" and the comp takes the overall length to 5.1, the same length as a standard 1911.
