The new DVC Tactical 2011 Pistol by STI targets tactical shooters by rolling the most functional aspects of STI’s competition series guns into a defensive pistol package.

Equipped with a five-inch threaded barrel, which is coated in copper tinted Titan Aluminum Nitride, the DVC’s copper aesthetics peak out between slide lightning cuts. The tinted barrel is paired with a low-viz diamond like coating on the frame giving the pistol a unique and innovative look.

The undercut trigger guard and stippled grip partner with a 3.5 pound trigger and ambidextrous safety lever. In addition, the gun utilizes fixed tritium sights for easier target acquisition.

The pistol comes with a tool-less guide rod and full length tactical dust cover for accessory mounting. The DVC Tactical also includes a STI Tactical Magwell for efficient reloads and mag stripping.

The handgun comes in two flavors — 9mm with 20 round capacity and .45 ACP with 14 round capacity — and retails for $2,999.
