In 371 BC, an outmanned army faced certain defeat at the hands of the Spartans. Refusing to surrender they employed a new formation in a final effort to save their city. By staggering their troops diagonally, each unit behind and to the right, they toppled the mighty Spartan army and invented the echelon, a military formation that is still used today. In the same spirit of innovation, Springfield Armory introduces the Echelon, a superior approach to modern pistol design.

Very accurate. Tested for accuracy on bench rest at 15 yards. The gun was dead on per owners manual for sight picture. This gun has. Very good trigger. About 3 1/2 lbs. The trigger reset is excellent for a striker fired firearm. Very controllable. Very versatile with the removable COG technology . The only downside is the mags. They are not very sturdily built. Other than that. This gun is very well built.
The echelon feels great in my hands. Great trigger,sights and optic mounting system. I put about 400 rounds through it,brass,steel,aluminum case fmjs, 6 different jhp and it’s ran flawlessly. I put a Holosun 407c on it and rmr/holosun optics doesn’t need any pin changing. Gunprime is always great to deal with. Cheapest and fast shipping.
Excellent handgun. Love the grip module. Very accurate. RMR is rock solid after 500 rounds. Gunprime had it to my FFL in 2 days!
So far, I can find absolutely no faults with this gun. I shot my first 150 rounds through it yesterday from various distances, and I was immediately surprised by its comfort to shoot. The grip feels like they molded it from my hand. The recoil is almost pleasant. Muzzle flip is minimal, and accuracy is on par with my SA 1911 Champion race gun, which is phenomenal. If you have been considering this gun, jump on it. If you haven't, jump on it.
Springfield has done it! What a great handgun is supposed to feel like, and how a great handgun is supposed to shoot! Got mine the 28th of July, mounted my red dot, went to the range, and put around 300 rds through it, with no issues. Absolutely the best handgun I've ever owned, or shot!
This gun is awesome!! Looks, feels and shoots great. Very accurate as well. Gunprime is the best place to get it. Very easy to order and shipping is always fast. Highly recommend!!
Great job on the optics mounting, groups at 25 yards were good.. I compared it to others like pdp Walther, glock 45 new trigger from glock, Sig Sauer 320 compact, and it hung right in there with the groups at 25 yards. The trigger not as good as Walther or glock but very manageable, i did get a trigger bite and blister started to develop on my trigger finger, a few days later I tried it again same bite but not as bad, I went up higher on the trigger and help a lot..I figured my trigger finger dragging on the bottom of trigger housing when I got the bite. I shot a good 300 plus rounds no issues. So for I like it..
