STI International introduced its new optics and suppressor-ready HOST Pistol, which is designed for shooters looking to add suppressors, slide-mounted red-dot sights and other accessories to their handgun.

The new HOST Pistol features fixed suppressor sights with tritium illumination, allowing shooters to co-witness the iron sights with a variety of slide-mounted optics on the market. The taller suppressor sights also allow shooters to aim over larger suppressors mounted on the barrel. The barrels on all models of the HOST Pistol include a classic cut that allows for suppressor use without the need for an extended adapter.

For optic use, the new pistol comes with a milled slide and a cover plate, along with adapters that allow the HOST to use Leupold Delta Point Pro, Vortex Viper and Trijicon RMR optics. The gun also features a toughened black diamond-like coating designed to allow the pistol to withstand extreme environments and holster wear. Another aspect of the gun is an incorporated Picatinny rail in the frame, allowing users to mount lights, lasers and other accessories.

The HOST Pistol comes in a number of different configurations. Users can choose between the company's single-stack 1911 design or the double-stack 2011 design. Other options include a choice of 4-inch or 5-inch barrel lengths and caliber choices are 9 mm, .45 ACP and 10 mm. The 10 mm model is only available with a 5-inch barrel.

The suggested retail price on the HOST 1911 Pistol is $2,599, while the HOST 2011 Pistol retails at a suggested price of $3,199.
