Springfield 911 380 Usage and Specifications
Are you right or left handed?
What features does this gun have that appealed to you?
Excellent grip, small size for easy concealment, lightweight, easy to rack, ambi manual safety, overall everything I would ever want in a compact carry firearm EXCEPT . . . See next question below.
Tell us about shooting this gun.
This gun jams! Over and over and over! My husband and I bought two of these, thinking what perfect guns for us. His began jamming on the second round and never got better. Mine worked perfectly at first but then started jamming. Hubby’s was sent back to the manufacturer but worked no better after being returned. We’ve tried varied brands of ammunition, studied and practiced grip and stance, but nothing seems to help even after approximately 1,000 rounds of practice. Both guns are now jamming on every single shot.
How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?
Recoil is not a problem, at least when the gun actually shoots.
How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties,slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)
Fits our hands so very comfortably. Safety is easy to use and slide is so easy to rack, even with my husband and I having arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Magazine release is easy.
Do you like the sights on this gun?
Yes! Excellent! So easy to use day and night sights. Best I’ve ever ever used.
How reliable is it?
Terrible, nada, zilch, zero. We absolutely cannot rely on these guns for self defense.
Any problems with any type of ammunition?
We’ve tried various brands of ammunition but none seem to work well.
Was it easy to take down and clean?
Is there anything you dislike about shooting this gun?
Only that it doesn’t shoot more than one round at a time before you have to clear a jam. To say that’s irritating is a gross understatement!
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
This is my dream gun, practically perfect in every way, except that it won’t shoot!!! So it’s completely useless for self defense.
Would you recommend this gun? If no, do you have a preferred gun?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I wish I knew what to do with them. We’re now stuck with two useless guns and don’t know with what to replace them.
