Looking into getting it as my first 1911. Doing some research to better understand the platform so I will feel more comfortable carrying "cocked and locked." What would happen if the hammer were to drop without pulling the trigger? Is there a 1/2 cock?

Totally rookie in 1911 land. Thanks!

The Garrison is not legal in CA. That would indicate to me that it can not pass the CA. drop test and therefore is a series 70 style pistol. No firing pin safety. I am guessing based on the specs given for the pistol by Springfield, your best bet is to call Springfield and ask them.

Calling Springfield or doing a Youtube video inquiry regarding its inner workings would be a good idea. The Garrison also has the 1911 grip safety which adds to the safe carry in the cocked and locked position.

Personally, I would have no misgivings about using a Garrison for everyday carry. Today's Series 70 weapons are much improved. In fact many prefer them over the 80 series because they believe they have a better out of the box trigger. I suggest recoverr do his research on the history of the Series 70 and a comparison between today's Series 70 and Series 80 weapons. That way he can make an informed decision that he will be comfortable with.

Come to think of it, I don't believe any of the Springfield 1911's have a firing pin block. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
You are correct.

I have no problem carrying my Garrison. Or any of my Springers for that matter.
