Now STI has taken the same qualities and applied it to 2 new models of Spartans- the Spartan IV in 4.15" configuration and the Spartan III in 3.0".

Crafted with classic 1911 design, STI's Spartans are traditional 1911 pistols with high-end standards at an affordable price. A collaborative project built with Armscorp, the Spartans are built on standard width steel frames. All three sizes feature an STI International single sided extended thumb safety and high-rise beavertail grip safety, STI Square style hammers, patented STI trigger systems, STI sears and disconnectors for smooth, reliable function, and are covered by STI's legendary warranty.

The Spartan V slide features traditional 1911 styling with front and rear cocking serrations, and the barrel is 5.0" with a match grade fitted bushing. Both the Spartan III and the Spartan IV have rear cocking serrations only and feature bull barrels.

Available in .45 ACP and 9x19.
