Springfield Armory 1911 Double-Stack (DS) Prodigy 9mm Pistol (VIDEO)

The Springfield Armory Prodigy 9mm pistol is the company's first offering in its new 1911 DS (double-stack) line of pistols. James Tarr talks with Mike Humphreys from Springfield about the new handgun.

Springfield Armory has announced the launch of the Prodigy AOS 9mm pistol, the first offering in the new 1911 DS double-stack line of pistols. The Prodigy, available in both 5-inch and 4.25-inch variants, enhances the proven 1911 platform with double-stack capacity and a performance-driven feature set.

Optics-ready with raised fiber-optic front/u-notch rear sights as well as an ambidextrous safety and Picatinny rail, at the heart of the 9mm Prodigy pistol is the expertly engineered double-stack magazine. Mounted to the pistol’s forged steel receiver is a polymer grip module that offers capacities of 17+1 in a flush-fit magazine and 20+1 in an extended one, both included with the Prodigy. An optional 26-round magazine is also available.

The polymer grip module features a wraparound Adaptive Grip Texture treatment, made popular on the Hellcat family of 9mm pistols. Matching up with this grip module and the forged steel receiver is a forged steel slide with forward serrations. Both it and the steel receiver feature a rugged black Cerakote finish. Housed within the slide is a match-grade bushingless forged stainless steel bull barrel.

Configured for today’s most demanding applications, the Prodigy is ready to accept a wide range of optical sights. Developed in collaboration with Agency Arms, the Prodigy employs AOS (Agency Optic System) plates designed exclusively for the 1911 DS. Machined from billet 17-4 stainless steel, the AOS plates come fitted with a rear sight and are designed specifically to preserve visible iron sights for an intuitive sight picture and instant target acquisition.


The pistol ships with a cover plate with rear sight as well as one optics-mounting plate designed for the HEX Dragonfly along with a variety of today’s most popular red dot optics. Additional plates designed to accept a wide range of today’s most popular optics are also available on the Springfield Armory Store. You can see a full fitment/optics compatibility chart for the AOS plate system here.


“The new Prodigy 9mm, the first in our new family of 1911 double-stack pistols, takes everything that shooters love about the 1911 platform and enhances it with increased capacity and a host of performance features,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Combining cutting-edge capabilities with all the proven benefits of the 1911, the Prodigy is a must-have addition for any handgun enthusiast’s collection.”
