The Springfield Echelon: Now In FDE and OD Green

The Springfield Armory Echelon succeeded the XD as the firm’s flagship striker-fired polymer pistol platform. Slimmer, trimmer, and equipped with its Variable Interface System for any number of red dot optics, the Echelon represents the double-stack 9mm pistol at its most feature-rich. Originally available in all-black, Springfield Armory is now offering the Echelon in either a Desert FDE or OD Green color scheme for your viewing pleasure.

The new FDE and OD Green Echelon feature a respectively colored modular polymer frame and a matching Cerakote stainless-steel slide. The slide features the same cocking ears at the rear and cocking trench at the front, as seen on the stock black model. The slide wears U-notch rear and front post tritium night sights and is cut for Springfield’s Variable Interface System that allows the mounting of up to thirty different types of reflex sights.

“The Echelon was engineered from the ground up to be today’s most advanced striker-fired pistol,” Springfield’s VP of Marketing Steve Kramer remarked. “With the addition of these two new color variants in Desert FDE or OD Green, shooters have even more options with this unparalleled pistol design.”

The Echelon features a central operating trigger group that is freely interchangeable between non-serial marked grips, allowing you to tailor the gun to the grip size of your liking. The Echelon also gives lefties plenty of options, with an ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release. Like the all-black model, these new models ship in a soft case with one 17-round and one 20-round magazine. The FDE and OD Green Echelons have an MSRP of $719.
