The 2011 pistol platform is based on a design that combines elements of the 1911 pistol with modern features and improvements. Staccato first registered the term 2011 when they designed their version of the classic 1911. The 2011 pistol design combines the basic frame and grip of the 1911 with a double-stack magazine, which allows for a higher ammunition capacity compared to the single-stack 1911. This design is favored by competitive shooters and law enforcement agencies for its increased magazine capacity and improved ergonomics.

Staccato’s investment in registering and advertising the 2011 pistol has certainly paid off, as they became known for the 2011, and have kept their competitors from marketing their double stack 1911 pistols as 2011s. Staccato offers a range of 2011-style pistols, each tailored for different purposes. These may include options for concealed carry, competition shooting, and duty use. Staccato’s models often have different barrel lengths, slide configurations, and features to meet specific needs.
