Law Enforcement Technology Magazine gives a "definitely carry" to the 1911-380.
“One of my favorite thrills at SHOT was Browning’s release of their 1911-380”
“One of my favorite thrills at SHOT was Browning’s release of their 1911-380, a scaled down government model faithful to the original design,” observed Bertomen. “As you know, John M. Browning designed the 380 Auto to be an 85% scale cartridge of the 45 Auto. The 1911-380 is an 85 scale of the 45 Auto 1911.”
“It is perfect for IWB strong side carry,” continued Bertomen. “How does it shoot? The fixed sights are better than most other factory 380s. The controls are intuitive…including a safety that sweeps cleanly. It is comfortable in the hand and came on target quicker that some of my own guns…I would definitely carry this.”
“How does it shoot?…I would definitely carry this.”
