Springfield Armory Echelon Pistol with 3-dot Sights


The Echelon sets a new standard for modern, striker-fired duty pistols. With a host of patent pending features, this modular and highly adaptable handgun is designed around a robust stainless steel chassis and revolutionary optics mounting system. Engineered with superior ergonomics and built to withstand the harshest conditions, the Echelon takes its rightful place at the front of the pack. The Echelon from Springfield Armory - Unparalleled.

At the heart of the Echelon lies the all-new Central Operating Group (COG). Employing cutting edge manufacturing techniques, the COG is entirely self-contained and serialized allowing it to be easily moved between grip modules in seconds. Precision built from stainless steel, the chassis provides a robust housing for its patent-pending operating system.

The Echelon's trigger harnesses the advantages of the Central Operating Group to deliver superior performance. Entirely contained within the chassis, critical components are machined from tool steel and highly polished for a clean take up, defined wall, crisp break and short, positive reset. The result is a trigger that redefines expectations.

Concealed beneath the slide cover plate is the Echelon's patent-pending optic mounting system. The Variable Interface System (VIS) allows users to mount over 30 optics directly to the slide without the use of adapter plates. Simply configure the self-locking pins for the footprint of your desired optic to achieve a low, direct mount for improved sight picture and intuitive alignment. As the mounting screws are torqued to spec, the pins exert lateral pressure on the optic's interior mounting surface to eliminate variance and left/right movement. The result is an unparalleled fit between the slide and a wide variety optics.

Thoroughly tested for ease of manipulation, the Echelon's slide features four distinct engagement surfaces. A trench cut forward of the action gives shooters a natural index location for press checks and charging the firearm. The back of the slide is flared for positive purchase while deep forward and rear serrations are carried through the corners for a firm grip from any angle.

The hammer forged Echelon barrel is manufactured for elite performance. Long regarded as the gold standard in barrel making the hammer forging process produces a stronger barrel with a smoother surface for ultimate accuracy and service life. Melonite coated for corrosion and wear resistance.

Built with safety in mind, the Echelon is designed and tested to exceed SAAMI drop test parameters by adhering to even tougher standards - our own. In addition to passing rigorous testing, the Echelon's Central Operating Group features a unique second sear design to help prevent unintentional discharge should the firearm be dropped. Field stripping the Echelon is toolless and requires no pull of the trigger.


  • Deeply machined crisp serrations offer a strong grip in any condition.
  • Forward trench relief cut creates a natural index point to assist shooters who charge or press check their firearm from the front of the slide while keeping hands clear of the action.
  • Further enhancing the ability to manipulate the firearm the rear of the slide is flared for additional engagement.
  • For enhanced day/night visibility, self-illuminating tritium inserts are housed within the 3-dot sight system.
  • Developed for the challenges of concealed carry, the Adaptive Grip Texture feels smooth to the touch until you apply pressure and engage the more aggressive texture just below the surface.
