U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Springfield Armory is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning family of 1911’s—the Emissary. Bridging the gap between duty and custom handguns, the Emissary delivers a bold and capable 1911 pistol with defense-minded features intended for serious use.

The new 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 trigger guard 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, a bushingless heavy stainless steel 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, which are matched with slim line grip panels by VZ Grips® machined from G10. At the front, a Picatinny accessory rail is integrated into the steel of the frame and is ready to accept a light, laser or combo of your choice.

Each pistol comes with two top-quality 8-round stainless steel magazines with base pads. MSRP is $1,279.

“This newest addition to the 1911 family of pistols provides an excellent option for a defensive handgun with an additional measure of refinement,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “The modern features on this classic pistol platform make this a must-have for 1911 lovers and anyone who wants a top-of-the-line defensive pistol.”

The Emissary is truly a refined 1911 built for self-defense that blends the best elements of a tactical handgun and a custom pistol to create a gorgeous and capable firearm that stands ready to deliver.

It’s a shame that Springfield makes some really nice 1911s but just can’t seem to keep from stabbing Illinois citizens and small FFLs in the back.

It seems that their latest AR pistols brought to market (EVAC & PDW) will conform to the ATFs proposed rule changes…

I can buy two Glocks for the same price and have 15 rounds of ammo in each one. I’ll get a left handed and right handed holster and have 30 rounds at my disposal while a bad guy with an Emissary has only 8. Price point is typical for guys who want a status symbol. “I have a Springfield Emissary”…ooooooooohhhhh. Now if it was $800..Maybe.

If it doesn’t come with an optic, it is already out of date!
