Springfield Armory has just announced the expansion of their Garrison line with the addition of two 9mm Garrison 1911 models.

Springfield Armory released the Garrison 1911 in .45 ACP in late 2021, and since then the pistols have been regarded as a solid 1911 option that offers a good balance between features, quality and price. While .45 ACP may be the only choice for a true classic 1911, many fans of the platform have also begun to accept the advantages offered by 9mm. For these shooters, Springfield has just announced the 9mm Garrison 1911.

Besides the different chambering, the new 9mm Garrison 1911s have essentially the same features as the .45 versions. Available with either a hot salt-blued carbon steel finish or a stainless-steel finish, both 9mm Garrison models feature 5-inch barrels and 9-round magazines. The slides, frames and barrels are all forged for extra durability, and the stainless-steel barrel is match-grade as well.

Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing, said this on the new 9mm Garrisons:

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…With a forged steel foundation for strength and heirloom-quality construction, this is a pistol that offers a modern take on a proven classic.

Other features on the 9mm Garrison 1911 include a skeletonized hammer, extended thumb safety, extended beavertail with a memory bump, wood grips and high-visibility 3-dot sights. The MSRP for the blued model is $849 and $899 for the stainless version.
