The Browning 1911-380 combines two of John M. Browning's most lasting innovations—the Model 1911 and the 380 ACP cartridge—into a modern, lightweight pistol. The 1911-380 is 85% of the size of the original 1911 45 ACP model, making it ideal for concealed carry duty and for fitting a wider variety of shooters. It's the perfect size to reduce recoil and barrel jump and allow for more comfortable shooting, more control, and more accurate follow-up shots. The longer barrel increases bullet velocity for more downrange punch and improved accuracy. The grip is compact, yet is long and wide enough to allow the shooting hand full purchase for shooting comfort. It is easily concealed with its smaller size and single-stack magazine that offer a compact, flat profile that fits easily inside the waistband. Unlike other compacts, the 1911-380 includes both the manual thumb safety and grip safety found on full-size 1911s, a trusted design that keeps you safe and secure.
