The Quantico HiCap Carry is the slightly shorter version of the original Quantico, with a 4.25" barrel.

The Quantico HiCap Carry is available in 9mm calibre, with a polished stainless steel barrel (black is available but will scratch with use). The frame and slide are machined from forged 4140 carbon steel, and the extractor is tuned and polished. The pin set is made of hardened steel, and the slide stop is a forged steel ledge.
