Springfield Armory started manufacturing firearms 1777 for the US military and has since grown to one of the leading arms manufacturers in the United States. Their influence on American history can’t be understated. The weapons they produced helped to arm US servicemen in every major conflict the US has been involved in. Their move to the civilian market has also seen great success. Their production of the 1911 pistol is well received by gun enthusiasts and the firearms market in general.

The difficulty of many regular shooters is finding a carry gun that fits their hands and is similar to their range mule, like the 1911. The SA 911 fills the void of carry guns that feel like full-size guns that firearms enthusiasts are used to shooting.
