I'm in the market for a new single stack compact carry option. I'm very drawn to the Staccato C — I love 9mm 1911 pattern guns, and I think it's the best looking one on the market today, hands down. Plus, I'm a sucker for pistol optics and I can throw one straight onto that gun.

But I need some opinions. To be honest, originally I was deciding between the Staccato C and Staccato P (I know they're built for completely different purposes) but because of several documented reports of extreme reliability issues with the P, I have pretty much ruled it out at this point. There seem to be less complaints about the C, but I'm still seeing some here and there.

Does anyone here have one? Can you share your experience with me? It's one of the coolest looking guns I've seen in the last few years, but I don't want to be buying a glorified paperweight.

Had a shooting friend who had one and let me run some mags through it. It was probably the finest compact 1911-type gun I ever shot. Being 'only' 9mm probably helped, but it was an absolute tack-driver and felt effortless.

Needless to say, I wanted one. If not for carry but just as a shooter for 'compact-gun night' when shooting plates, which was why he had it there.

Following, because I hope to have one some day....

Honest Outlaw did a couple good reviews on the Staccato C (and more recently, the C2), and had lots of good things to say about them. If you go to his YT channel you can view all of them.

He's one of the glowing reviews I saw. Same with Sage Dynamics. Two channels that I generally have no problem trusting, but after seeing so many issues from end users without big social media followings I wonder if maybe STI made sure to send hand-picked guns to these guys...

Note: I have no proof of that, and I know there are plenty of people that are happy with their guns. I'm just trying to see if I can figure out the odds of getting a bad one.

Also, last I checked, Honest Outlaw hadn't made it to his 1000 round review. I may wait until one of those comes out, but with current ammo shortages that could be a long wait.

Mine is an absolute tack driver. Smooth, extremely well built, fit and finished. I love it. That said, I have the Wilson Combat EDC X9 which I prefer. In fact, it is far superior by any measure. Better round capacity, no grip safety, etc. The Wilson Combat might be the best quality firearm I've ever experienced. As far as Staccatos go, I have had absolutely no issues with the C or P. Both have performed flawlessly and I highly recommend them. Quick edit...I do have one issue. Why fiber optic sights? I just don't get it. The P is marketed as a duty pistol which requires night sights. The sights are great..during the day. I have the Delta Point Pro mounted to mine but if I were to run the irons, I'd want to get night sights.

What's the problem with the P's?
Anecdotal reports of consistent failures to feed and extract, and stovepipes. Apparently this was caused by a combination of magazine issues and mag release issues. I can't find the thread anymore but I think it was on AR15 and the people having problems seemed to have gotten their guns in the January-March 2020 period. I didn't make this thread to give STI any grief; I actually really want to buy some of their guns. I just want to make sure I'm making a smart choice before I spend that much money, because their guns definitely aren't cheap.

IMHO, and from my experience, night sights really aren't necessary. If it's dark enough that you actually need tritium to see, you can't ID your target well enough to even know if you should be pointing a gun at it in the first place. If it's bright enough that you can see your target, then you don't need the tritium.

I will say though, tritium is great for finding your gun on a nightstand in the dark.

Interesting. Well hopefully those that had issues got them fixed by STI.

Mine will be one year old at the end of September and runs like a sewing machine. I'm just over 2000 rounds on the gun if it wasn't for the beer bug and other stupid stuff going on would have more rounds on it. I break it down clean and re-oil after every range trip. The gun is in my EDC rotation.

My only ***** about the gun is the RMR mounting plate is pretty damn thick. I'm used to my two Glock's having their slides milled for the RMR's. I was told that STI may now be offering a thinner mounting plate so the RMR will sit lower but I haven't looked into it.

They’re a requirement for duty use though.

I have been looking at purchasing a 2011 for a while but keep going back and forth between the Staaccato and the Triarc Tri-11. Anyone have experience with both and prefer one over the other?
