STI international, Inc. has introduced a new line of handguns “designed to win matches out of the box”. The DVC (standing in for the IPSC motto “Diligentia, Vis, Celeritas”) Limited and Open handguns are the newest top-of-the-line 2011-based handguns.
As one would expect, the pistols are graced with a bevvy of competition and aesthetically-oriented features including textured grips, all steel parts are hard-chromed, and the trigger is set up for a 2-2.5 “breaks like glass” trigger. Both handguns feature 5″ bull barrels with the Open having an integrated brake. Barrels and brakes (where applicable) are coated with Titanium Nitride.
Full Press Release Below:
On the Limited model, weight has been removed from the slide to help keep the gun balanced, increase cycle rate, and reduce forward recoil. The front sight is a Dawson Precision fiber optic and the rear is fully adjustable. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W the DVC limited makes a perfect 3-Gun, U.S.P.S.A. or I.P.S.C gun. MSRP is $2,799.
The DVC Open features a Trubor style integrated compensator. The compensator has been redesigned using high-speed video footage of some of the best shooters and custom compensators in the world to minimize muzzle jump and felt recoil. The slide-racker is entirely new and has been designed to be ambidextrous so it can be used on either side of the pistol via a duel detent system. The DVC Open is topped off with a 6 MOA C-More Sight, making it the perfect gun for Open Division competition. The gun is available in either .38 Super or 9mm (tuned for major power factor). MSRP is $3,699.
