NRA Gun of the Week: Staccato P

posted on August 20, 2021

For more than 25 years, STI manufactured hybrid pistols of the Browning M1911 design, only now STI is rebranded under the Staccato name and continues its business commercially manufacturing semi-automatic handguns. It P series 9 mm is a continuation of the company’s flagship duty gun.

The Staccato P is a feature-rich pistol and ships with magazines that have capacity for 17 and 20 rounds of 9 mm, which is a divergence from Browning’s original pistol. Staccato achieves this increased storage by its 2011 frame that incorporates a “blended polymer grip.” This gives the 2011 design the strength and durability of a metal-framed handgun while also providing the benefits of a polymer grip face, which include improved ergonomics and texturing.

You’ll also find that the Staccato P offers an incredibly crisp 4-lb. trigger, along with ambidextrous safety levers, an extended beavertail grip safety, a fiber-optic front sight and the company’s TAS II rear sight, an adjustable unit that’s been contoured to eliminate sharp snag points.

This duty-ready handgun has been approved for use by more than 325 law-enforcement agencies, a testament to the gun’s success in duty evaluations. Staccato boasts that its P series design has never failed a law-enforcement test, and that includes drop safety, accuracy, reliability and endurance testing.
