Yup same thing I thought. I had to register a warranty through them and get their newsletter and updates once or twice a month. When I saw this last week I thought WTH that's a Sig. Without checking I think this is Springfield's first offering in a .380 platform. If so I'm surprised as the .380 has become quit popular in the past few years. Like automobiles I stay away from first production models so I'll give this a pass. I have a couple of .380's anyway and not looking to add one anytime soon.
Not to change subjects but I've been married 45 years today. My wife just gave me a gift card to our local gun store. As i'm also having a new roof installed on my house today I'll probably go to the LGS range and do some banging of my own. I might rent one of the new Sig's, I mean Springfield's, if they have one.
This gun is liberty; hold for certain that the day when you no more have it, you will be returned to slavery.

Looks like another copy of the old Star model D.  Which is what the original Colt .380 Government, Mustang and Pocketlites were based on.

a 1911 (type of platform) is a 1911 is a.....  guess it's pretty hard to produce one that doesn't look like something that's already "out there" - a cosmetic thing here, a cosmetic thing there (but, then again, there's my Coonazz .357  :th_thicon_idea:)
