New for 2018, Springfield Armory’s 911 is a single-action, semi-automatic chambered for the .380 ACP cartridge that fires from a locked breech. Standing just 4” tall with an overall length of 5.5”, the 911 makes for a very concealable gun that is seemingly effortless to carry—it weighs just 12.6 ozs. empty. Although the 911 is modeled after the M1911 pistol, it is not a miniature replication; its barrel and internal lockwork are different. Like the M1911, the 911 can be carried “cocked and locked,” with the chamber loaded, hammer back. Atypical of the M1911, when rendered “safe,” the 911 can be loaded and unloaded.
