The Springfield Armory 911, now available in 9mm, offers ultimate concealability with the familiarity and controls of a traditional 1911. It comes standard with a 6 round flush fit magazine, a 7 round extended magazine, and a soft sided pistol case with included pocket holster. The 911 is offered in five different configurations with different slide finishes and grip options.
The 911 slide is made from 416 stainless steel with a stainless steel finish. Ball cuts at the front of the slide reduce the width and hard edges making it easier to holster. The top of the slide features a loaded chamber indicator giving you the ability to see and feel if the pistol is loaded. Springfield uses an Ameriglo Pro-Glo tritium front sight post with a U-Notch tactical rack rear sight with green tritium inserts for fast target acquisition in low-light conditions. Both sights are made from steel and dovetailed into the slide. Rear chevron style slide serrations make it easy to rack the slide. The slide has an external extractor that is made from steel and finished with black nitride.
Inside the slide sits the 3-inch 416 stainless steel barrel. The barrel rifling is made using the broached rifling method for superior accuracy and has a 1:16 twist rate. Paired with a full-length guide rod and flat wire spring, the 911 recoil is controlled and manageable.
The frame is made from 7075 T6 anodized aluminum and features Springfield’s Octo-Grip texturing. It’s a unique checkering pattern found on the front strap and mainspring housing, giving you added grip texture in all conditions. The 911 frame has an undercut trigger guard allowing for a more controlled grip. The rear thumb safety is ambidextrous and also has a swappable magazine release. The hammer has been skeletonized and is serrated.
Springfield chose to use a new Hogue G10 trigger shoe. G10 is a fiberglass laminate composite material that’s incredibly strong, and moisture resistant. The trigger on the 911 has a short reset and a crisp break. From the factory, the weight is set around 5 pounds. Thin-Line G10 grips with textured milling and a G10 mainspring housing help reduce weight and width. All G10 parts are made by Hogue. Other 911 models feature black nitride finished slides and barrels with optional rubber Hogue, or Viridian Laser grips.
MSRP on the 911 is $659. You can find one for less from your local dealer on GunsAmerica.
