Springfield adds new model to 911 series with 911 Alpha .380
Springfield Armory adds to its series of compact 1911s, introducing the new 911 Alpha model chambered in .380 ACP.
The 911 Alpha is a “value-priced variant” that brings the essentials of the 911 platform without breaking the bank. Featuring a frame-to-slide-to-trigger-guard relationship, the 911 features a short reset with 5-pound polymer trigger. Topped with a loaded chamber indicator, the 911 Alpha uses an extended thumb safety for easier manipulation under stress. The 911 Alpha also boasts a fiber optic front sight paired with a white, two-dot rear sight for quick target acquisition.
Measuring 5.5-inches in total length, the 911 Alpha stands 4-inches high. Built from 7075 T6 anodized hard-coat aluminum, the pistol uses a 2.7-inch 416R stainless steel barrel and full-length guide rod with flat wire spring for control and a softer recoil, according to Springfield Armory.
“The Springfield Armory 911 Alpha offers a value-priced variant that focuses on the essentials of the platform, while maintaining the quality and handling characteristics the Slickgun is known for,” Springfield Armory said in a news release. “With an MSRP of $429.00, no other firearm in its class comes close to the quality and feature set of 911 Alpha.”
Shipping in either stainless or black nitride, the 911 Alpha comes with a flush 6-round magazine and an MSRP of $429.
