The 4.25″ Emissary in 9mm from Springfield Armory blends form and function seamlessly in a firearm built for defense. Loaded with custom-grade features, it’s constructed with a forged stainless steel frame and forged carbon steel slide, with a beautiful two-tone finish.

On top, the tritium and luminescent front sight on the Emissary pairs with a Tactical Rack U-Dot rear sight for easy target acquisition in all lighting conditions.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you'll be getting the idea. What's interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she's also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
