Launching 2023: Staccato CS Handgun

All you need is steel downrange to turn staccato into symphony.

posted on January 18, 2023

Staccato (adj.): performed with each note sharply detached or separated from the others.

At just a quarter-century old, Staccato may be a relative newcomer to the firearms scene, but the company has already made waves as the most decorated brand in competitive shooting. This forward-thinking brand specializes in the "2011" pistol, an evolved version of John Moses Browning's classic 1911. New for 2023, Staccato introduces the CS—a sized-down handgun based on the company's original 2011. The CS boasts a single-action trigger for excellent shootability and control, but the real excitement is in the double-stacked magazine that offers 16+1 ammo capacity. The result is a hammer-fired concealed-carry piece that weighs in at under 23 ounces ... just enough weight to eat recoil like lunch, but not enough to make the gun tough to carry.

In this great video, our friends from Shooting Illustrated demonstrate just how fun and accurate this diminutive CCW semi-auto is. For more information, visit
