GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory is now shipping their popular 911 .380 with a super-tough black nitride finish. This cosmetic variant to the pistol not only looks sleek, but also provides additional durability and function.
Black nitride is a high-grade corrosion and abrasion resistant finish that allows the pistol to withstand hard wear and tear, while maintaining its function and accuracy in extreme conditions. Through the process of nitriding, the outermost layer of the stainless steel frame is hardened, thus making it more resilient to strenuous use and inclement weather. Offered as a finish on the 911 .380 introduced in January, it’s an excellent added value to an already reliable firearm.
Springfield Armory engineers optimized the 911’s frame-to-slide-to-trigger guard relationship to create handling characteristics unique among small pistols. While many pocket guns can be difficult to shoot, Springfield Armory’s gunsmiths specifically designed the comfortable feel, confident control and minimal recoil in their .380 platform to encourage both practice and carry.
The 911 .380 features a G10 short-reset pivoting trigger with a light 5-pound pull, a differentiating and satisfying feature in such a small pistol. It also has an extended ambidextrous safety to ensure easy manipulation under stressful situations and confirms that the weapon won’t fire before the operator intends. A hammer provides peace of mind with both visual and tactile cues for various modes of carry.
For quick target acquisition, the 911 comes with a bright tritium low-profile tactical rear sight, paired with a low-profile combat Pro-Glo™ tritium and luminescent front sight. The low-profile design ensures a snag-free draw, to put the firearm between operator and attacker as quickly as possible. G10 Octo-Grip™ on the mainspring housing, and Octo-Grip™ front strap texturing, allows for secure grip contact without tearing up your clothes while carrying concealed.
The 911 .380 features a flush 6-round magazine or 7 round magazine with a Mag X-Tension.
The Springfield Armory 911 .380 in black nitride is an ideal carry pistol or backup gun, with the features, quickness and reliability to change outcomes. It’s small frame shooting with the familiarity of a 1911. When the Police are minutes away and the threat is seconds away…9-1-1…When you have to be your own first responder.

About Springfield Armory®
In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.
