Springfield Armory turned a lot of heads with the announcement of their Prodigy handgun 2 years ago, and they have been looking to create new iterations ever since with the aim to make it truly available for everyone. Their latest installment is a 10-Round 1911 DS Prodigy™ 9mm for those who might live in restrictive states, cities, and/or locales limiting your magazine capacity.

Springfield Armory @ TFB:

Why Make a 10-Round 1911 DS Prodigy™ 9mm?

It is a sad state of affairs, but for many of us, the reality of owning firearms is that we live in areas and are presided over by legislators who do not have a full, educated grasp of firearms. This pans out in laws that don’t make sense, limit our freedoms, and do little to enable public safety. For all of those reasons, Springfield Armory was motivated to produce the 10-Round 1911 DS Prodigy™ 9mm so those gun owners who are burdened by restrictions could still own this phenomenal pistol.

A Word from Springfield Armory on the 10-Round 1911 DS Prodigy™ 9mm

The new 10-Round 1911 DS Prodigy™ 9mm has many of the same attributes and accouterments you have come to know from the 1911 DS Prodigy™series except there are now factory offerings of a slightly lower magazine capacity size. Springfield Armory shared some of their thoughts on this latest offering of the Prodigy:

Geneseo, Illinois - June, 2024 - Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of   two new 10-round 1911 DS Prodigy™ pistols —   the 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 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.”

    You call $1500 affordable? SMDH....

    So, I'm not really clear on this, is this just a regular DS Prodigy shipping with new reduced capacity magazines or is it a completely new DS Prodigy re-engineered to take new reduced capacity mags?

    If it is the latter, why? 10 round single stack 1911s, in 9mm already exist and these are definitely more comfortable in the hand than any DS 1911.
