Springfield Armory 911 .380 Honored at NRA

GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory®’s 911 .380 was awarded a coveted Golden Bullseye Award during NRA Show 2019.

NRA Publications’ titles American Rifleman, Shooting Illustrated and American Hunter honors outstanding firearms industry products with their selection of the Golden Bullseye winners. Voted on by NRA Publications’ editors and select staff, the annual award recognizes achievement in ideal experience, overall function, and design. Springfield Armory’s 911 .380 took home this year’s Golden Bullseye honor for Tactical Firearm of the Year.

“It’s an honor to be recognized among a diverse and competitive field of our industry’s most innovative engineers and designers,” explains Springfield Armory’s VP of Marketing Steve Kramer. “We put tremendous focus on ensuring our first introduction to the .380 platform was crafted with comfort and shootability in mind, and we are delighted to accept the Golden Bullseye on behalf of our team’s hard work.”

The 911 .380 has an optimized frame-to-slide-to-trigger guard relationship creating handling characteristics unique among small pistols of its kind. The 911 .380 both shoots and feels like a full-size firearm, encouraging both practice and daily carry in the most concealable firearm that Springfield currently offers. It’s small frame shooting with the familiarity of a 1911.

About Springfield Armory®

In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.

Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A™, 1911, 911 and SAINT® AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois.
