Springfield Armory was in attendance at SHOT Show’s “Industry Day at the Range,” and they brought along a lot of their new toys for all of us to enjoy and check out in person. The highlight for many people was absolutely the New 911 9mm. The 911 model itself has been received very well, but people have been begging for it to be offered in 9mm, and now they have it.
The Springfield Armory 911 9mm shares a lot of the same valuable attributes that its smaller brother in .380 ACP has, but now you have what is likely the most popular caliber in the world for concealed carry (and cheaper ammo to shoot at the range). A YouTube video from Springfield Armory gives a great overview of the New 911 9mm below:
This pistol has a battery of great qualities built into it and punches in at the affordable price-point of $659 at full retail. I, personally, shot the 911 9mm for the first time at the Industry Day at the Range and it was impressively accurate. Making steel plates sing out to 25 yards is not a problem with this little carry pistol. Some of the technical highlights from the New 911 9mm can be read below:
- Pro-Glo™ Tritium/Luminescent Front & White Outlined Tritium Night Sight Rear
- 7075 T6, Anodized Hard Coat Aluminum, Octo-Grip™ Textured Frame
- 416 SS, Black Nitride Finish w/Ball Cut & Loaded Chamber Indicator Slide
- 3″ 416 Stainless Steel, Black Nitride, Precision Broached / 1:16″ Twist Barrel
While the 911 9mm was definitely the darling of the Springfield party, they had quite a bit of other cool firearms to show as well. We covered a few weeks ago that Springfield Armory was expanding out their offerings in the standard 911 .380 ACP with more color options and those were in attendance as well. In the photo below, the two 911 pistols on the left are some of their new color choices shooters can pick from. On the right-hand side are two new 911 Alpha pistols – the more affordable iteration of the model 911.
Springfield Armory also brought with some of their New SAINT Victor pistols and rifles. These firearms received quite a few upgrades such as improved triggers, better muzzle attachments, and more intelligently-designed handguards. All of which either stayed at their former model’s price-point or barely went up in price with a significant increase in quality.
A SAINT Victor 300 BLK pistol can be seen above with its improved single-stage flat trigger while one of the SAINT Victor 5.56 NATO rifles was available to shoot near the Long-Range bay at the Industry Day at the Range as can be seen below.
Springfield Armory does a terrific job of introducing intriguing products, listening to consumer feedback, and then refining those products within their portfolio. The SAINT Victor rifles embody that attention to detail perfectly.
So with all of the new products that Springfield Armory has been dripping around SHOT Show, which one are you most excited to shoot or potentially buy? The 911 9mm? The SAINT Victor models? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
