Guns STI Guardian 2011 Platform Handgun Recoil Staff February 26, 2016 Join the Conversation Employee owned STI International, Inc., in Georgetown, TX, just released a new version of the Guardian. It's a 2011 platform with double-stack magazine (you may recall us talking about their new blasters during SHOT) called (wait for it)…the STI Guardian 2011. Here’s what they have to say about it. New for 2016, the ever popular STI Guardian is now available in a 2011 platform with double-stack magazine. The gun has a narrow lightweight aluminum frame in Cerakote finish with a stainless steel slide. The Guardian 2011 also features a unique 3.9 inch barrel and a shorter VIP grip for easier concealment in light cover, and yet still maintains an impressive 15 round capacity in 9mm.
