Springfield Armory and partners auction the ultimate every day carry package for Concerns of Police Survivors
GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory is offering an exclusive, comprehensive every day carry (EDC) package for auction on Gunbroker.com with all proceeds benefiting the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.). The package features the new Springfield Armory 911 .380 and a host of must-carry products valued at more than $1,500.
Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join C.O.P.S, for the price paid is already too high.
The EDC package for auction includes a Springfield Armory 911 .380, a 6-round magazine, and a 7-round magazine in addition to the two magazines that come standard with the purchase of the pistol, and a Springfield Armory hat.
The auction winner will also receive one limited edition Zero Tolerance Factory Custom Hinderer manual flipper knife. The knife was a collaboration with Rick Hinderer and features durable, top of the line materials and a ball bearing that makes it especially easy to open and close.
Viridian Weapons Technologies is generously including its first-ever Grip Laser package for the auctioned 911 .380 and comes pre-installed on the gun. The Grip Laser also features Grip Zone texturing and convenient constant-on and pulse modes.
Crossbreed is providing their Crossbreed MiniTuck® IWB holster, featuring premium leather backing and a molded and mounted kydex pocket with a “combat cut.” Designed to be worn near the rear of your draw side, the holster’s cant and height can be adjusted as needed with the modular belt clips making it an EDC option that can fit your personal preferences.
Personal Defense Network (PDN) is contributing their Medical DVD and Skill Development Drills DVD. The Medical DVD covers immediate emergency medicine including applying a tourniquet, patient assessment and pressure dressing, treating a gunshot wound, and much more.

The auction package also includes a Propper range bag, complete with a front pocket equipped with six magazine slots, a rear pocket with a loop field and removable fold-out mat, a removable hook and loop organizer panel and two internal dividers for maximum versatility and customization.
Federal Ammunition will be gifting 100 rounds of Personal Defense® HST® ammunition, and 250 rounds of American Eagle® in .380ACP so you can load your mags and head to the range with your pistol.

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.
Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their high-quality 1911, 911, SAINT® AR-15 and legendary M1A™ lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois. Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD® polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace. We strive to honor this responsibility as guardians of the original Springfield Armory legacy by manufacturing the highest quality firearms to enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
With an unmatched emphasis on craftsmanship, performance and exceptional customer service, our mission is to forge superior firearms and provide the tools necessary to defend individual freedoms and equality for those who embrace the rights and principles secured by our Founding Fathers.
