One year after Springfield Armory introduced its 911 .380 ACP pistol, the 911 Alpha—a value-priced variant that focuses on the essentials of the platformhas been added. The new model, available in Black Nitride or Stainless, carries an MSRP of $429.00.

The 911 Alpha maintains the quality and handling characteristics the gun is known for, including a crisp, short-reset, 5-lb. trigger; extended thumb safety; fiber-optic front sight and white, two-dot rear sight; and a flush, 6-round magazine are all present on the Alpha.

The frame measures 5.5” long (2.7” barrel length), with a smooth, undetectable profile. The 911 Alpha is crafted of 7075 T6 anodized hard-coat aluminum—the same material used in combat-ready firearms like Springfield’s Saint AR-15 rifles and pistols. Cross Cannon polymer grips and vertical line texturing on the front strap and mainspring housing provide additional traction and a secure hold on the pistol.
