Springfield Armory recently introduced the Garrison 1911, a new addition to its impressive lineup of 1911 pistols. Chambered in .45 ACP, the Garrison 1911 features forged materials and heirloom-quality construction, as well as a 5-inch barrel. 

The new handgun is available with classic hot salt blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless steel, and allows for a host of upgrades. The forged frame ensures durability over a lifetime, as do forged slides and barrels. The pistol also has a modern look and feel thanks to low-profile but highly visible sights, extended thumb safety, and thinline grips. 

“The Garrison is designed to appeal to those who respect tradition and demand the quality for which Springfield Armory 1911 pistols are known,” said 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.”

Fans of the 1911 will likely be attracted to the classic styling and modern touches given to the Garrison 1911. With its traditional barrel bushing system and wood grips, this is a pistol that captures design with more than a century of service behind it. Meanwhile, features such as the match grade stainless steel barrel, skeletonized hammer, and extended beavertail grip safety with memory bump ensure maximum performance.

The 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 $800, and $849 for stainless. Find out more at springfield-armory.com
