The Springfield Armory Garrison, Now In 9mm

Featuring forged materials and heirloom-quality construction, the new 9mm Garrison 1911 combines modern materials and design with a heritage spanning back more than a century. Available with classic hot salt blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless steel construction, the Garrison is a rock-solid 1911 that gives you a host of modern upgrades along with the strength to provide a lifetime of service. For those who respect tradition and demand the best, the new 9mm Garrison stands ready.

The Springfield Armory Garrison 9mm is a modern take on John Moses Browning’s timeless 1911 handgun design. Incorporating cutting-edge engineering and materials science into the archetypal defensive pistol, the Garrison 1911 offers high-end custom quality at a working man’s price. Now that the Garrison is offered in 9mm, it also raises the bar on practical shootability. 

I know I gave the Garrison some serious crap when it was introduced in .45 ACP six months back. I still think it was earned then, and still warranted now, however that doesn’t mean I dislike another moderately priced .45 ACP or 9mm 1911 entering the market.

The 1911 remains one of the most pleasant shooting pistols ever designed, 111 years and going strong, and I wouldn’t doubt the design remains popular into its 2nd Century because of that fact alone. It is a delight to shoot. Springfield is well known for making a solid 1911 handgun. Every example I’ve shot, regardless of the rich or basic feature set of the model, did one thing. It ran. I got it, I cleaned it, oiled the rails, and it ran. 10mm, .45, 9mm, they shot. I never pressed any of them to the many multi-thousand round point, but a case of 1,000 never choked any of them.

So yeah, they come in 9mm now. Neat!
