Strayer-Voigt, Inc. (also known as SVI) is a manufacturer of M1911-styled modular pistols. The Strayer-Voigt system is call modular because the lower grip and trigger guard, which is made of a fiber reinforced plastic, is a separate component from the metal upper portion of the frame that comprises the dust cover and frame rails. They are the most famous for their Hybrid series of pistols. SVI markets its products under the brand name Infinity Firearms. The Infinity pistols are sometimes unofficially known by the combined name of Strayer-Voigt Infinity among some enthusiasts, a play on the SVI acronym.

HistoryEdit

Strayer-Voigt, Inc. was started in June 1994 when Sandy Strayer left STI International Inc to form his own company. Sandy Strayer joined forces with Michael Voigt, a professional shooter, to manufacture and market their own line of modular frame 1911s.

The new age of 1911'sEdit

The polymer frame is a shared patent design between Strayer-Voigt and STI International Inc. It offers a modular design for 1911 lovers around the United States and world who need a great competition pistol. By making the lower half of the frame from thin polymer, the gun can make use of double-stack magazines without a significant increase in grip thickness. SVI and STI pistols generally hold approximately twice as many rounds of ammunition per magazine as traditional 1911s (ie, 14 rounds of .45ACP instead of 7 rounds). SVI Infinity pistols currently rank among the most popular - and most expensive - competition 1911 pistols made. Complete SVI handguns can easily run into the $4000+ range, depending on options. They are produced in a variety of calibers, including .38 Super, 9mmx23, .40S&W, and .45ACP. SVI Infinity pistols make exclusive use of Infinity Accuracy Enhanced pistol barrels. The barrels begin as stock Schuemann AET barrels, which make use of a variety of proprietary technology to make what is touted as the most accurate pistol barrel available. However, after fitting to a specific pistol, SVI coats the barrels with Titanium Nitride, which yields lower friction and a unique golden color. SVI also now uses slides with interchangeable breech faces, which makes caliber changes cheaper for customers wanting to shoot several different calibers in the same platform. SVI provides accuracy certificates with their pistols which feature the accuracy enhanced barrels that are less then 1.50" groups at fifty yards, which is remarkable accuracy for a pistol.
