New for 2017 – Rosewood grips with gold Buckmark inlay. Blackened stainless steel finish with silver brushed polished flats. Full size, 85% scale 1911 pistol chambered in 380 ACP. Steel three-dot combat sights or night sights. Composite frame, ergonomic and skeletonized controls.
Adding a bit of class to the 1911-380 platform. Not only is this little beauty ready for accurate, functional shooting and easy carry, it simply looks superb with its composite frame with machined aluminum subframe, blackened stainless steel finish with silver polished flats. Then add to that checkered rosewood grips with gold Buckmark logos. The steel three-dot combat sights, dovetailes into the slide, are a fine finishing touch.
The concept. 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. Unlike most of the modern “pocket pistols” that chamber the snappy 380 ACP cartridge, the 1911-380 is slightly larger to better manage recoil for improved control that makes follow-up shots faster and more accurate. The grip is compact, yet is long and wide enough to allow the shooting hand full purchase for added shooting comfort.
