Joe Grine and I visited the STI Guns booth at SHOT Show Range Day and put a few rounds downrange. Naturally, the Costa Carry Comp was a big draw. This one’s a “sight tracker” 9mm 2011 (double-stack 1911), and it’s apparently the first of four Costa Ludus specials. More Costa Carry Comp and other STI photos, plus shooting impressions follow . . .
The front sight is attached to the barrel instead of the slide, so it hardly moves. This makes it easier to keep track of while shooting.
Not that a compensated 9mm 1911 (or 2011) has a lot of muzzle movement anyway.
Case in point:
On the range, it was smooth as butter and recoiled like a .22. Great sights, great trigger, and accurate.
Though with STI, even the “standard” guns are decked out.
