Designed as an "heirloom-quality" old-school M1911A1-format pistol available in either a classic hot-salt-blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless-steel format, the Garrison series run match-grade 5-inch barrels and the standard layout of Mr. John Browning's classic. Switching it up from the familiar .45 ACP caliber, the new Garrisons come in a single-stack 9mm, shipping standard with a stainless steel nine-round magazine.
"The Garrison in 9mm is designed to appeal to those who respect tradition and appreciate the flat-shooting aspects of a full-size 9mm 1911," says Springfield Armory’s VP 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."
MSRP of the new Springfield Armory Garrison 1911 in 9mm is $849 on the blued variant and $899 for stainless.
