GENESEO, ILL. (06/28/24) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of two new 10-round 1911 DS Prodigy™ pistolsthe 1911 DS Prodigy AOS Low Capacity, and the 1911 DS Prodigy 4.25” AOS Low Capacity — designed for shooters who live in restrictive locales. The Prodigy takes the proven 1911 platform and enhances it with a performance-driven feature set.

The 10-round Prodigy features a polymer grip module that mounts to the pistol’s forged steel frame. The grip module features a wraparound Adaptive Grip Texture treatment, made popular on the Hellcat® family of 9mm pistols. Matching up with this grip module and the forged steel receiver is a forged steel slide with forward serrations. Both it and the steel receiver feature a rugged black Cerakote® finish. Housed within the slide is a match-grade bushingless forged stainless steel bull barrel in both models.

Both the 5” and the 4.25” 10-round Prodigy pistols are ready to accept a wide range of optical sights. The Prodigy employs AOS (Agency Optic System) plates designed exclusively for the 1911 DS. Machined from billet 17-4 stainless steel, the AOS plates come fitted with a rear sight and are designed specifically to preserve visible iron sights for an intuitive sight picture and instant target acquisition.

The pistol ships with a cover plate with rear sight as well as one optics-mounting plate. Additional plates designed to accept a wide range of popular optics are also available on the Springfield Armory Store. You can see a full fitment/optics compatibility chart for the AOS plate system here.

“The Prodigy has proven itself as a pistol that takes everything shooters love about the classic 1911 design and updates it with a host of modern performance enhancements,” said Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With these new 10-round versions, the popular Prodigy pistol is now available to shooting enthusiasts in restrictive locales.”
