40 S&W, 9×19mm Luger/Parabellum
What else can be said? These are the slimmest full power handguns on the market today. Utilizing new linkless barrel technology with classic 1911 design, allows the STI International LS pistol to be slimmest full powered 1911 on the market today; only .765" across the slide and 1.065" across the slim rosewood grip panels. Designed for concealed carry and self defense, the LS features an undercut trigger guard and front strap STIppling, which transfers most of the felt recoil to the heel of the palm and reduces muzzle rise through the unique design of the STI Camblock linkless barrel system. The LS uses conventional 1911 controls, with the added advantage that the slide can be cycled for loading or unloading with the thumb safety engaged.
The LS pistol has an abbreviated grip, 3.4" barrel and weighs less than 28 ounces. The sights are a slide integral front sight with a Heinie Low Mount rear sight for a snag-resistant design. The LS comes standard with STI International's patented trigger assembly and RecoilMaster guide rod system. Calibers are 9mm and 40 S&W.
