More about the new Springfield 1911 pistol variants

The Emissary blends form and function seamlessly in a firearm built for defense and 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. The blued carbon steel slide pairs with a stainless steel frame, featuring a distinctive squared triggerguard with additional room for ease of operation with a gloved hand.

The slide’s “Tri-Top” cut gives the Emissary custom styling, while a flattened top strap is finished with 40 LPI serrations to diffuse light and reduce glare. 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.

Inside the slide, the bushingless heavy stainless steel 4.25” or 5” bull barrel delivers maximum accuracy while reducing felt recoil and muzzle flip. In addition, the Emissary’s skeletonized hammer delivers ultra-fast lock times and combines with a solid-body, flat-faced trigger for top-end performance.

The forged stainless frame’s front strap and mainspring housing are wrapped in a grenade-pattern texture for firm engagement in adverse conditions. This is matched with slim line grip panels by VZ Grips machined from G10. Each pistol comes with two top-quality 8-round stainless steel magazines with base pads. MSRP for each is $1,279.

“These newest additions to the Emissary line provide shooters with great options for a self-defense pistol with an additional measure of refinement,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With either the more compact 4.25” .45 ACP or the 5” 9mm, these new Emissary pistols are a must-have for 1911 enthusiasts who demand the best.”
