Springfield Armory is launching two new 1911 pistols in their Garrison series, now chambered for 9mm Luger. Like the original models in .45 ACP, Springfield is offering the 9mm with a traditional blued finish or with a stainless slide and frame.

Both models, the blued and the stainless, are full-size 1911s with traditional lines and modest modern improvements. They have 5-inch forged stainless steel match-grade barrels with fully supported feed ramps.

Modern touches include 3-dog combat-style sights, a skeletonized hammer and trigger with an adjustable over-travel stop, an extended right-hand thumb safety, and an extended beavertail grip safety with a memory button.

Otherwise, these stay true to the G.I. style, with traditional recoil assemblies and barrel bushings. They have standard frames without any accessory rails.

The blued version has a carbon steel slide and frame and comes in at a slightly lower price point than the all-stainless model. The slides and frames are forged, with a soft matte texture along the front, back, and top of the guns with slightly polished flats for a subtle two-tone look.

Both 9mm Garrison pistols come with Springfield’s Thinline wood grips, with traditional diamond checkering and the crossed cannons emblem at the center. They each come with one 9-round flush-fitting magazine.

These are all-around handsome guns, with a proven style accented with a few welcome improvements. The blued Garrison 1911 carries an $849 suggested retail price, and the all-stainless model is still affordable at $899.

For anyone looking for a straightforward 1911 chambered for 9mm, the Garrison is just that. More information on both of these pistols and the rest of Springfield’s lineup can be found online at Springfield Armory.
