Browning Expands 1911-380 Semi-Automatic Pistol Line

posted on September 23, 2016

Browning has added two new models to its 1911-380 semi-automatic pistol line, the Black Label 1911-380 Pro and Black Label 1911-380 Pro with rail. Like the other models in the 1911-380 family of pistols, these new .380 ACP cartridge pistols are scaled down to an 85-percent size version of the original .45 ACP model designed by John M. Browning.

Both models are available with either steel three-dot combat sights or night sights, while the grips are made of G-10 composite. The rust-resistant barrel is 4¼" long and includes a target crown. Additionally, each pistol has an extended, ambidextrous manual thumb safety, extended slide release and beavertail grip safety. Magazine capacity is eight rounds, weight is 18 oz. and overall length is 7½".

Black Label 1911-380 Pro with 3-Dot sights, MSRP: $799.99.
Black Label 1911-380 Pro with night sights, MSRP: $879.99.
Black Label 1911-380 Pro with rail and 3-Dot sights, MSRP: $829.99.
Black Label 1911-380 Pro with rail and night sights, MSRP: $909.99.
