STI International Introduces the HEX Tactical Pistol Line

    Most readers are familiar with the STI line of 1911s and the quality that goes into them. Since STI is employee owned you can just about count on a quality gun. After all employees have a monetary investment which tends to drive everyone at the company to make the best pistol possible.

    This new Hex Tactical Pistol Line has an aggressive slide sculpting providing the user with a positive grip surface which runs almost the entire length of the slide. The slide also features a triangular shape on top with an angle on both right and left side and a flat top. As with most new pistols these days the Hex comes with a fiber optic front sight and a U shaped notch rear sight which is also becoming very common as well as popular with shooters.
