    I only use .22lr and .380 ACP. I have waiting and asking why some manufacture have not made a .380 1911 and finally it has happened. I am very HAPPY!!!

    P.S. How can I be on a list to procure one as soon as they hit the distributors?

    04/12/16 I just found out about this pistol recently. I went to Browning website and they say it is
    discontinued. I thought this was just introduced? Also, I think they were making this with in a sub-compact version, with 3.625″ barrel length.
