New: Springfield Armory Emissary Commander, 9mm Models
Following up on the popularity of the Government-sized Emissary .45ACP M1911, Springfield Armory on Thursday announced a Commander-length model as well as one in 9mm.
As with the earlier model, the Emissary line sports a two-tone finish, with a blued carbon-steel slide and a stainless-steel frame with a squared trigger guard. Carrying a "Tri-Top" cut to the slide, the single-action pistols run a bushingless heavy stainless-steel bull barrel with a one-piece full-length guide rod. For those who want texture in their grip, the series has a grenade-pattern texture on the front and back of the grip as well as the slimline G10 VZ panels.
Other features include 40 LPI flat top slide serrations on the slide to diffuse light and reduce glare as well as Tritium/luminescent front and Tactical Rack U-notch rear sights.
"These newest additions to the Emissary line provide shooters with great options for a self-defense pistol with an additional measure of refinement,” said Steve Kramer, VP of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With either the more compact 4.25-inch .45 ACP or the 5-inch 9mm, these new Emissary pistols are a must-have for 1911 enthusiasts who demand the best."
