Springfield 911 Pistol Now in Black Nitride Finish

posted on June 15, 2018

Springfield Armory is now shipping its 911 .380 pistol with a super-tough black nitride finish. Black nitride is a high-grade corrosion- and abrasion-resistant finish that allows the pistol to withstand hard wear and tear, while maintaining its function and accuracy in extreme conditions. In the nitriding process, the outermost layer of the stainless steel frame is hardened, thus making it more resilient to strenuous use and inclement weather. The pistol was introduced in January, and was the subject of the May 2018 American Rifleman cover story.

The 911 .380 features a G10 short-reset pivoting trigger. It also features a 5-lb. trigger pull, an extended ambidextrous safety, and a tritium low-profile tactical rear sight paired with a low-profile combat Pro-Glo tritium and luminescent front sight. The low-profile design, along with G10 Octo-Grip on the mainspring housing, and Octo-Grip front strap texturing, allow for secure grip contact without snagging clothes while carrying concealed. MSRP: $599. Check out the pistol in Springfield Armory’s video.

PG9109                        .380 ACP BLACK NITRIDE                                              MSRP $599
