Default Browning 1911 in .380

Just read about a new pistol: A Browning 1911 chambered in .380. Being a .380 fan, I'm very interested. It only weighs 18 oz. and is 85% scale of an actual 1911. In the article, the tester shot over 2K rounds through it with zero failures. Any one else hear about this?

No. but years ago I had for a short while a Llama 1911 type in .380. Pretty well used, so I turned it pretty quick.

I heard they were going to produce one, but I don't know when they will be available

Thanks for the links. Unfortunately, the IT dept here has anything gun related blocked. So, I can't view it. I read a review in Concealed Carry magazine about it. They loved it.
