First Look: New Emissary 1911 pistols from Springfield Armory

Springfield Armory is adding four new models to the Emissary line of 1911 pistols. These all-black variants are offered in 4.25-inch and 5-inch barrel lengths and are chambered in either 9mm or .45 ACP.

“These four variants add a unique new look to the popular Emissary line of 1911 pistols,” says Steve Kramer, vice president of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With this all-black finish, shooters now have four new appealing options for a defensive handgun with an additional measure of refinement.”

As with the original two-tone models, these new pistols are constructed with a forged steel frame and slide for strength and durability. In addition to their black Cerakote finish, the pistols have a distinctive squared trigger guard that offers additional room for ease of operation with a gloved hand.

The slide’s “Tri-Top” cut gives the Emissary line a custom look, with a flattened top strap finished with 40 lines-per-inch (lpi) serrations to diffuse light and reduce glare. There is also a tritium front sight that pairs with a Tactical Rack U-Dot rear sight for easy target acquisition in all lighting conditions.

Inside the slide, there is a bushing-less stainless steel bull barrel with a black nitride finish for accuracy and reduced felt recoil and muzzle flip. In addition to this, the Emissary’s skeletonized hammer delivers fast lock times and combines with a solid-body, flat-faced trigger for top-end performance.

The 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. These new all-black variants include a 4.25 model that features a full-length dustcover with a section of Picatinny rail for accessories such as a light or laser.

Each pistol comes with two top-quality magazines with base pads. MSRP for each of the four new variants is $1,378.
