I’ve been following the little Black Label .380 1911 for some time now, enthralled at the idea of a lighter daily carry 1911. While some may bemoan the caliber, I am perfectly confident in its ability to do what is needed, especially from a 4.250″ barrel which puts muzzle velocities at nearly 9mm levels.
The smaller size (rated at 85% of full-size handguns) is appealing for concealment and for ease of weapons manipulation (I like to drop slide-stops versus rack slides). From there, the $670 MSRP just sweetens the pot.
We’ve requested one for review. Hopefully Browning will give us the opportunity to do so and I can see if my gun lust is well-founded or if the execution is disappointing.
