Springfield Armory 1911 DS Prodigy 4.25 AOS PH9117AOS 9mm Luger

A smooth operating and accurate 1911-style pistol with double the magazine capacity of a standard 1911. The grip is bit fatter, and it is heavier than a polymer-frame pistol for concealed carry. The Crimson Trace optic is a good value for use in competition or target shooting. Does not automatically come on, so for EDC, we’d choose other optics.

Springfield Armory has a long history of building 1911 pistols, and the DS Prodigy has many 1911 characteristics, such as the 1911 grip angle, thumb safety, grip safety, and sliding trigger.
