STI 2011 DVC Omni
Caliber Options: 9mm - .45 ACP
The Latin meaning for Omni is “all” and the DVC Omni is no exception. The DVC Omni encompasses our 2011® technology as well as added features most appealing to all shooters. Its Island Comp Barrel creates the fastest shooting, lowest recoiling, flattest pistol we have ever made. A H.O.S.T. Optic Cut allows for endless slide mounted optics choices and comes with all plates needed to run the optic of your choice. Not only is the slide Shorter, 4.15”, but it has our signature DVC lightening cuts- less mass in motion means less recoil to your hands.

Purchased one of these from Dawson Precision. Was quoted 8~12 months for delivery. Got it in less than 2 weeks, so that was cool. I was pretty nervous spending 4 grand on a pistol I can’t check out first, but once I got it I was pretty happy.
So the pistol itself is fitted very well. No slide to frame movement or barrel to slide movement. The DLC finish is very nice, but on the inside of the slide it does not look like there is any finish where the barrel rides. I’m guessing that was for fitting reasons. Trigger breaks at 2.5lbs. Thumb safety is very positive. Grip safety deactivates the movement you get any pressure on it. The grip itself is textured nicely, but won’t shred your shirt. It shoots flat and the recoil impulse is very smooth. It’s not violent like on some the Roland Special Glocks. A lot easier to keep the dot in the optic window.
So the “cons”
I only have about 700 rounds in it. I have had a lot of double feed malfunctions. So I stripped it down and tuned the extractor. Haven’t shot it after that but I’m guessing that was it cause it would barely hold a round if you just slid one between the breach face and extractor. Now this one is kinda petty but STI does an awesome job sending you a all blacked out pistol but then send you two stainless mags instead of the black ones. Also it would be nice if they installed suppressor height night sights instead of the standard height night sights. I would think anyone that buys the DVC Omni is going to run a optic. It would be nice if they milled for specific optics like Trijicon’s RMR. That way you don’t have to run adapter plates and the sight would sit lower and you probably wouldn’t need suppressor height sights to cowittness.
Overall I am happy with the pistol. It looks awesome and let’s face it, looking good is all that matters...
