In November 2021 Springfield Armory announced the Garrison 1911 pistol chambered in a classic defense round, the .45 ACP. Now Springfield has announced the newest addition to its award-winning family of 1911 pistols—the Garrison in 9 mm. Featuring forged materials and heirloom-quality construction, the 5” barreled Garrison 1911 combines a heritage spanning back more than a century with the ever-popular 9 mm chambering.
Available with classic hot salt blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless-steel construction, the Garrison 9 mm offers forged frames, slides and barrels; low-profile, high-visibility sights; extended thumb safety; thinline grips and much more.
“The Garrison in 9 mm is designed to appeal to those who respect tradition and appreciate the flat-shooting aspects of a full-size 9 mm 1911,” says Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing, Steve Kramer. “With a forged steel foundation for strength and heirloom-quality construction, this is a pistol that offers a modern take on a proven classic.”
Those familiar with the classic 1911 pistol will be right at home with the Garrison. With its traditional barrel bushing system and wood grips, this is a pistol that captures the charm of a design with more than a century of service behind it. At the same time, enhancements such as the match grade stainless steel barrel, skeletonized hammer, extended beavertail grip safety with memory bump, and more ensure impressive performance.
The 9 mm Garrison pistols feature attractive finishes made up of a smooth, matte finish on the rounds of the slide and frame complemented by polished flats that bring out the luster of the carbon or stainless steel. MSRP for the blued version is $849, and $899 for stainless.
