GENESEO, ILL. (01/23/24) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning family of 1911 pistols—the Garrison 4.25” in .45 ACP and 9mm. Featuring forged materials and heirloom-quality construction, the 4.25”-barreled Garrison 1911 combines modern construction with a heritage spanning back more than a century.

Available with classic hot salt blued carbon steel or rust-resistant stainless-steel construction, the 4.25” Garrison 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.

Anyone familiar with the classic 1911 pistol will be right at home with the 4.25” 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 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 $868, and $917 for stainless.

“The Garrison is designed to appeal to those who respect tradition and demand the quality for which Springfield Armory 1911 pistols are known,” says Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing, Steve Kramer. “With the addition of these new 4.25” models to complement the original 5” guns, fans of classic 1911 pistols have a great new EDC-ready option.”
