However When I look at the SPRINGFIELD ARMORY GARRISON 1911 for sale, I see a solid, traditional 1911 with some important upgrades that help to make the modern 1911 the capable handgun that it is. Before we consider those up is a very shootable 1911. The blaster is chambered in .45 ACP and shoots just like it should. The 37-oz. gun and G.I. recoil system effectively tame the 45’s push. The extended thumb safety helps keep the muzzle flat. The sights do their part and tell you exactly where your shot is going to go.
Also the trigger was impressive. There was little pre-travel or overtravel and zero creep. The break was smooth and crisp. I like it a lot. Before I measured the trigger, I guessed it was pressing at about 3.5 pounds. I was off. By a pound and a half. The trigger averaged out at 5 lbs., 8 oz. Clearly, this is a clean and crisp trigger on the Garrison. Trigger weight matters, but in my opinion, the quality of the trigger matters more. Obviously, the Garrison is a winner in the trigger department.
