With 110 years under its belt John Browning’s 1911 is still going strong, and maintains a huge fan base. Despite the age of the design, companies continue to evolve it both in terms of styling and function. Witness the new Springfeld Armory Emissary.
Still packing that traditional .45 ACP punch, the Emissary is a blend of production and custom features. If you want an ultramodern take on the 1911 for your EDC or completion use, give the Emissary a look.
Tasked with a special mission, the Emissary bridges defensive and custom pistols delivering a bold and capable addition to the Springfield Armory family of 1911’s.
Built on a durable foundation of forged steel in its barrel, slide and frame, the Emissary offers a defensive pistol with an air of custom refinement. The pistol has a beautiful two-tone finish, with a blued carbon steel slide and a stainless-steel frame with squared trigger guard. A “Tri-Top” cut to the slide gives the pistol custom-grade styling, while a heavy-profile bull barrel delivers maximum accuracy and reduces felt recoil.
The Emissary blends form and function seamlessly in a defensive-minded firearm loaded with custom-grade features.
