Editor’s Note:

The Staccato C2 redefines the concept of a concealed carry gun by providing full-sized accuracy, handling, and shooting characteristics in a smaller package. The match-grade bull barrel, 16-round capacity, and Recoil Master System ensure that you have everything you need to engage targets from point-blank out to 100 yards with ease.

By The Numbers - Staccato C2

For a compact pistol, the C2 is almost a pocket sniper rifle.
With the current generation of 2011 magazines, these guns run well. Note that Staccato recommends against using steel case ammo.
These guns come with an accessory rail, and optional optics-ready and threaded barrel versions are available too. Grip modules can be changed thanks to the 2011's modular design.
The controls are placed very well, but the grip is blocky by nature and some users may find the grip texture too aggressive.

final verdict

“The C and C2 continue Staccato’s commitment to performance-driven handguns. Offering smooth shooting and an out-of-the-box appeal, they won over this 1911 skeptic. The price of admission for all this high-end stuff comes in high, though. Staccato’s base model C sits right around $1,700, and the optics-ready C2 reaches up to about $2,300. But if you get a chance to fire any of their guns, I think you’ll probably begin to understand the performance that comes along with that price tag.” – John Currie
