Springfield Armory Garrison 9mm


As I was learning to shoot and developing my love for the sport, the main issue that steered me away from the 1911 platform was the price. For a long time, buying a 1911 handgun meant spending more money than I got to keep from my paycheck. However, in recent years, I’ve started seeing more of them on the market with lighter price tags. More importantly, the lower cost didn’t mean lower quality. With a suggested retail of $899.00, I wanted to see if the Springfield Armory Garrison 9mm skimped out on quality to bring the price down. This is my review.

I opted in for the stainless steel version. The blued version of the Garrison looks very nice, as well. After going over the specifications, I loaded my gear into the “truck” (it’s an SUV dad car. Just let me have this one) and headed off to MODTAC Training Group, my local outdoor range. There, I shot a few groups to test the gun’s accuracy. I don’t know about you but I like to run around while I shoot. I got my shoes dusty and did some quicker shooting on steel targets.
