GENESEO, ILL. (05/11/21) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest addition to its line of popular Emissary 1911’s—the Emissary 4.25” in 9mm. 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 as well as convenient carry.

The new 4.25″ Emissary in 9mm 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.  

A bushingless stainless steel 4.25″ 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. Each pistol comes with two top-quality 9-round stainless steel magazines with base pads. MSRP is $1,349.

“With its more compact slide and barrel length and the ever-popular 9mm chambering, this newest addition to Springfield Armory’s 1911 family of pistols provides an excellent option for a defensive handgun with an added level of refinement,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory.

The Emissary 4.25″ 9mm is truly a refined 1911 built for self-defense, blending the best elements of a defensive handgun and a custom pistol to create a gorgeous and capable firearm that stands ready to deliver.

    Does it REALLY not come in a cardboard box?

    My opinion of this new release is “BFD”. I don’t know why they stopped making the far superior Trophy Match 1911 only to make a feeble clone of it. I will never sell or get rid of my Trophy Match!
    If you see one at a gun show….
    buy it instead.
