First Shots: Staccato C 2011 Pistol

The Staccato C gives you all the benefits of double stack, DA/SA pistol in an easy to carry size.

posted on February 14, 2024

The Staccato C is a 4-inch pistol that is small enough for concealed carry and big enough for on duty and home defense. Chambered in 9mm, it has a 4 inch bull barrel for accuracy, an aluminum frame for light weight and a crisp 4.5 pound trigger pull. Like the rest of the Staccato line, it is a single-action, double-stack gun that combines the great trigger of a 1911 with the capacity of more modern pistols, allowing you to carry 16 rounds in the magazine on a day in, day out basis. More information on this pistol and the rest of the Staccato line is available at
