New Springfield "911" 380 (just like Sig 238)

Postby Flowmaster » Tue Jan 02, 2018 11:03 am

Springfield announced a new 380 pistol on January 1st.

It looks just like the Sig 238 with some different slide serrations, a different trigger guard contour, and a pop up loaded chamber indicator. The slide serrations look just like the ones on the XDM so I guess they're trying to use that style of serrations as a way of branding their pistols. Some of the small Sig pistols have ambidextrous safeties too.

Is this likely to be a bigtime lawsuit from Sig for making a product so similar that it confuses customers? Or maybe Sig is behind it all, possibly producing them for Springfield as a slightly tweaked and re-branded product?

In the video on their website, they seem to emphasize that it should be called the "nine-one-one" instead of the nine eleven. Maybe that's to keep Porsche off their backs.

Neither it or the Sig are on my short list.
Only way for them to be here is if a customer has me special order it or a transfer.
I have been really disappointed with the manufacturers lately.
