The 1911 That Fits In Your PocketEveryone agrees that when if comes to a defensive-use handgun, the 1911 is the standard by which all are judged. Springfield Armory is known for the 1911 handgun, but they are also known for making it smaller and perhaps because doing so, making it better. The slightly-smaller-than-a-1911 Springfield Armory EMP has been a very popular addition to the firearms maker's line-up. Springfield has taken miniaturization to the next level with the 911, a true pocket 1911.
The 911 pistol from Springfield Armory is a 1911 in .380 Automatic Colt Pistol. The micro-compact handgun's 7076 T6 aluminum frame and 416 stainless steel slide bring the gun in at a scant 12.6 ounces. The tiny 911 is 5.5 inches long, 3.9 inches tall and the slide is a slim 0.8 inches wide.
Unlike other small firearms, the Springfield 911 does not suffer from less-than-optimal specifications and features. The Springfield Armory 911 features a set of Ameriglo Pro-Glo tritium/luminescent sights that are highly visible under all lighting conditions, and the rear sight is also tactical rack u-notch. The Ameriglo Pro-Glo sight are low-prolife so as not to interfere with any sort of draw from concealment. The Octo-Grip texturing on the 911's mainspring housing and front strap allows fro a secure fit while still being smooth enough to not hurt your clothing. The guide-rod is full-length and has a flat wire spring for control. Hogue makes the awesome thin G10 grips, the G10 mainspring housing and the G10 trigger. Speaking of triggers that Hogue G10 trigger shoe of the Springfield 911 attaches to a crisp, short-reset 5-pound trigger, exactly what you would expect from a 1911 trigger. The thumb safety on the 911 is ambidextrous and is exactly where it should be for easy manipulation under stressful conditions. The magazines are a flush-fit 6-rounder and an extended 7-round magazine that allows you to get more of your hand on those Hogue G10 grips.
