Few firearms manufacturers have as much legendary American heritage as Springfield. In 1777, George Washington ordered the creation of the Springfield Armory for revolutionary arms and ammunition storage. From there, Springfield has continued to be a leader in American firearm innovation, designing legendary military arms like the M1 Garand, the 1911 handgun, and the M14 rifle. Although the armory was closed in 1968 due to budgetary issues, the Reece family revived the Springfield name in 1974 and began producing updated versions of Springfield's popular designs. Today, Springfield continues to push their time tested designs while adding modern features and updates to make these legendary firearms more dependable than ever.
