GENESEO, ILL. (01/04/24) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of a 15-round variant of the Echelon™ 9mm pistol. This new offering provides those in locales requiring restricted capacities an opportunity to own a duty-ready 9mm that sets an unparalleled standard for modern, striker-fired pistols.

At the heart of the Echelon lies the patent-pending Central Operating Group. Employing cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, this modular system is an entirely self-contained and serialized stainless steel chassis. The result is a system that is easily moved between available grip modules in seconds.

For maximum adaptability to the widest range of users, the chassis can be installed in any Echelon grip module, allowing shooters to configure a firearm that fits perfectly. The pistol comes standard with the medium grip size and three interchangeable backstraps, while small and large grip modules can be purchased separately.

Further adding to the Echelon’s adaptability is its truly innovative Variable Interface System. This system employs patent-pending self-locking pins that exert lateral pressure on the optic’s interior mounting surface for consistent and reliable point of aim/point of impact. In addition, the pins can be positioned to fit the footprints of more than 30 popular optics, allowing for an unparalleled direct-mount fit.

The 15-round Echelon is offered with either U-Dot™ tritium/luminescent sights or three-dot tritium sights. The accuracy performance of the pistol is ensured by the hammer-forged 4.5” barrel. The Echelon’s two included 15-round magazines are designed for rugged durability, hard use and reliable operation. They feature a blacked-out, scratch- and wear-resistant coating.

“The Echelon was engineered from the ground up to be today’s most advanced striker-fired pistol,” says Steve Kramer, Springfield Armory’s Vice President of Marketing. “And now with this new 15-round version, it’s available to an even broader range of shooters.”

With an MSRP of $679 for the U-Dot variant and $719 for the three-dot tritium version, the 15-round Echelon 9mm offers shooters a pistol engineered with superior ergonomics and built to withstand the harshest conditions. The Echelon from Springfield Armory – Unparalleled.
