The Springfield Armory line of popular Emissary 1911 pistols includes 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 4.25″ Emissary in 9mm from Springfield Armory blends form and function seamlessly in a firearm built for defense. 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 distinctive squared trigger guard has been designed 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.
