Springfield Armory Introduces new Garrison 1911 Handgun chambered in 9mm
GENESEO, ILL. April 2022 – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning family of 1911 pistols—the Garrison in 9mm. 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 9mm chambering.
Available with classic hot salt blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless-steel construction, the Garrison 9mm is a rock-solid 1911 that gives you a host of upgrades along with the strength to provide a lifetime of service. The pistols feature forged frames, slides and barrels for durability as well as modern enhancements such as low-profile yet high-visibility sights, extended thumb safety, thinline grips and much more.
“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 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.”
Anyone 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 9mm 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.
For those who respect tradition and demand Springfield Armory’s legendary commitment to quality, the Garrison stands ready.
