Springfield Armory’s 911, introduced recently, was the company’s answer to the question: Can a 1911 be a truly concealable pocket pistol? Now, SA is answering a new question, and that question is: Can a 1911-style concealable pocket pistol be purchased for around $400? The answers to both questions, just in case you were wondering, are “yes” and “yes.” (Although we could have just used this picture of the 911 Alpha in .380, we suppose.)
The Springfield Armory 911 Alpha is a value-priced version of the wildly popular 911. Despite its budget MSRP of $429 (and, likely, available for less than that at your local dealer), this concealed-carry-ready pistol offers you the same quality and craftsmanship that you trust in Springfield Armory’s top-of-the-line guns. It’s available in Stainless or Black Nitride finishes, and will fit just as seamlessly into your CCW strategy as your 911 sidearm.
An optimized frame-to-slide-to-trigger guard relationship creates a uniquely comfortable, intuitive and accurate shooting experience for a pistol of its size. A crisp, short-reset, 5-pound, polymer trigger ensures a light yet responsive pull for reassuring precision, while the loaded chamber indicator provides a visual and tactile indicator of the guns condition.
The extended thumb safety encourages easy manipulation of the safety under life-threatening situations where fine motor skills can be compromised under stress. A fiber optic front sight and white, two-dot rear sight allows for quick and clear target acquisition.
To keep the gun invisible until needed, the frame measures 5.5 inches long and less then 4 inches high, with a smooth profile that’s undetectable under clothing. The new 911 Alpha is crafted of 7075 T6 anodized hard-coat aluminum—the same material used in combat-ready firearms like Springfield’s renowned 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.
The 2.7-inch, 416R stainless barrel gives this small gun amazing accuracy at greater than confrontation distance. A full-length guide rod with flat wire spring enhance control and soften recoil.
