So what is the general consensus on the 1911-380?

I think it looks interesting.

I'm sure this will find a market. It's small, handy & good quality.

Decent semi-compact CCW piece since it's slim and nicely rounded, but almost feels like a full sized with its 4.25" barrel. Also good for small women who don't enjoy full sized 1911s but appreciate the aesthetic. Or people that like cocked & locked carry.

My first thought was "meh". But after looking at it for a little bit, I kinda want one. I think there are other, more practical, CCW type guns, but this one has some appeal.

Locked breach and a polymer lower... interesting.

I handled the polymer and regular versions side by side last weekend. I'd still take the regular version over the polymer frame. I can't place it, but the polymer didn't 'feel' right in my hand. As a side note, you can engage the safety even when the hammer is decocked, similar to a Sig P238.

I thought it was only available as a composite frame?

Shit, you are right. I was handling the browning and a colt polymer frame mustang side by side. Brain fart.
>> No. 101667 ID: 67d0ab
Huh, wonder if the mags would run in a Mustang/P238 as well?

Looks interesting either way.

In Mexico, that's the standard 1911. I want to get one for my dad now.

Colt Mustang was a thing for a long time and nobody cared. I assume this is of similar dimensions which puts it in a similar weight class as a PPK, relatively large and heavy compared to the itty bitty polymer pocket .380's but probably much more pleasant to shoot. I probably won't buy one, but I don't hate it.

I always assumed Mexican 1911s would be mostly .38 Super.

Then why say it's already the standard in Mexico?
.380ACP (or .380 Auto) is not .38 Super
>> No. 102167 ID: 6d019b
Actually yeah, if it's scaled down it'd be kind of neat to mess with and what's the harm in another gun anyway?

I like the standard size 1911, a mini one would be adorable.
