Geneseo, Illinois-based Springfield Armory is a company that keeps me on my toes. Long known for producing 1911 handguns, the XD series and M1A rifles, the company is rapidly expanding into other categories. Recent launches of firearms, including the bolt-ac- tion Waypoint and bullpup Hellion rifles, along with the Hellcat series of pistols, came as a surprise to most.

I guess I shouldn’t have been shocked when the company re- leased another game-changer: a double-stack 1911-style handgun called the DS Prodigy AOS—DS as in double stack and AOS an acro- nym for Agency Optics System. The DS Prodigy AOS is a high-capacity, single-action, optics-ready 9mm available at a consumer-friendly price.
