Springfield Armory's first new pistol introduction of 2018—the 911 .380 ACP—is the manufacturer's most concealable firearm to date.

Springfield says it has optimized the frame-to-slide-to-trigger guard relationship, creating handling characteristics unique among small pistols of its kind and offering small-frame shooting with the familiarity of a 1911.

The 911 .380 carries a crisp, short-reset 5-lb. trigger with the industry’s only G10 Trigger shoe produced by Hogue. The quick, positive trigger squeezes off repeat rounds with precision, a key factor in surviving defensive situations. A loaded chamber indicator and hammer provide peace of mind with both visual and tactile cues allowing for various modes of carry.

Designed for life-saving defensive use at close range, the 911 features an ambidextrous safety and is matched with an Ameriglo Pro-Glo green tritium front sight inside a yellow luminescent circle, and a tactical rack U-notch rear sight with green tritium inside of white luminescent circles. Sighting is designed to provide fast target acquisition to gain the edge in a defensive encounter. The low-profile design ensures a snag-free draw.

At 5.5” long and less then 4” high, along with a smooth profile, the pistol remains easily hidden until necessary. Springfield’s Octo-Grip texturing on the mainspring housing and frontstrap allows for a secure grip without snagging clothes while carrying concealed. The thin-line grips and mainspring housing are made of G10 by Hogue.

Should need arise, the 2.7” precision broached barrel gives this small gun solid accuracy at greater than confrontation distance. A full-length guide rod and flat wire spring enhance control and soften recoil. A flush 6-round and 7-round extended magazine provides added capacity. Two configurations of the 911 .380 are also offered with integrated green Viridian laser grips.

The new 911 is crafted of 7075 T6 anodized hard-coat aluminum, the same material used in combat-ready firearms like Springfield’s renowned Saint AR-15 rifles and pistols. A brushed-satin, matte-finish stainless steel or black Nitride slide rounds out the features.

“With such great advances made in modern defense ammunition, the .380 has become a seriously viable defensive platform,” says Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese, “and our customers deserve a pistol that makes the most of it. Once you try it, you’ll be as convinced as we are that this is the best .380 pistol choice available.”

MSRP: $599 and $789.

Now available in four configurations:

PG9109 .380 ACP BLACK
PG9109S .380 ACP STAINLESS
PG9109VG .380 ACP BLACK, GREEN VIRIDIAN LASER
PG9109SVG .380 ACP STAINLESS, GREEN VIRIDIAN LASER
