The pistol features a bushingless bull barrel,
a full-length, stainless-steel guide rod, a
reverse plug and a much-simplifi ed takedown
process compared to standard M1911s.
link and barrel lugs that lock the barrel
into the slide. Two extra recoil springs
are included, should the user wish to
shoot particularly heavy or light loads.
The bilateral thumb safeties are
well-fi tted and activate with an
ideal amount of tension, while the
grip safety has a memory bump to
make deactivation more positive
and a beavertail just long enough
to prevent hammer bite-yet not
so long as to snag on clothing. The
magazine-release button is small and,
curiously, untextured. The skeletonized
trigger shoe is polymer, with a
textured face and an Allen setscrew
to adjust overtravel. Our sample's pull
weight averaged 4 lbs., 8 ozs., with
minimal travel during the break and
no overtravel.
The grip is distinctively textured
on all three sides and on the front of
the trigger guard, but is smooth under
the trigger guard where the shooter's
middle fi nger rests when grasping the
pistol. An aluminum Dawson Precision
Tactical Advantage Magwell is pinned
to the base of the grip frame to ease
reloading when the shooter is on the
move or in darkness.
The Staccato P uses dovetailed
steel sights consisting of a red
fi ber-optic front and a square-notch
rear. The rear sight blade has glarereducing
horizontal serrations, and
the top outer edges are bevel-cut
with smoothed edges to prevent
snagging on clothing or cutting your
hand during slide manipulations.
Each click of the fully adjustable
rear sight moves the point of impact
0.67 " at 25 yards; it has a minor
cocking ledge if necessity calls for
racking the slide one-handed.
The Staccato proved to be superbly
accurate, scoring mean 25-yard rested

groups under 1.75 " with three test
loads. The sights are intended for
defensive shooting and are easy to
acquire, align and recover after recoil,
however, we believe even tighter
groups would be achievable if the
shooter were to switch to target sights
that minimize alignment errors.
There were no stoppages during
a 250-round fi ring session using the
accuracy-testing loads and two other
hollow-point rounds. One shooter
appreciated the grip safety disengaging
before its maximum travel, which
allowed him to use his preferred grip
that fails to disengage the safety on
some M1911s. The Staccato's trigger
has some degree of take-up, which
we feel is benefi cial for a defensive

pistol and could even be longer without
becoming a hindrance. The slide
serrations were ideal, with prominent
edges that afford positive purchase
without the need to apply a tight
grip to cycle the action.
The Staccato 2011 P would be
improved with a smaller grip than
the version now used, which is large
enough to accommodate .45 ACP
magazines. A 9 mm-sized grip would
allow shooters to access the magazine
release without adjusting their
grasp and to wear gloves without a
sensation of grasping a pistol with
substantial girth. But, overall, the
pistol performs well and overshadows
many M1911s with its accuracy, easier
takedown and higher capacity.
