  1. What have you heard?

    Disappointed? Yes.
    Surprised ? Given the lack of support? No.

    Time to put it away, for now.

    Maybe more valuable ? We will see. I have not shot mine in a long time. 380 is kind or a pain to load . Tiny powder loads and last time I forgot to zero my scale and under loaded about 100 rounds. would not cycle reliably even with a reduce power spring.

    Dang!

    I try not to carry out of production guns. That is just because I know that I will get upset if anything happens to something that cannot be easily replaced.

    I have no problems with reloading 380. That said, I really like the grip safety of the 1911-380. I am not sure what I will replace it with. I might go back to my Glock-42, but I really don't like the "safe trigger" which of course means, no safety at all.


    Wait! Edited to add, where are you seeing this notice of discontinuance? I checked Brownings site and saw no mention of it being discontinued.

  4. See Browning's own website:

    https://www.browning.com/products/firearms/pistols/1911-380/discontinued.html

    The website seems to be a little confusing?

  6. My bad! They're not discontinuing The Black Label; they're discontinuing the Black Label with two magazines.
    Glad you guys were able to clear that up for me.

    My GF really likes the wood-gripped with gold "buck's head" inlay Black Label version.
