Springfield Armory® Releases New Emissary 1911
All-Black Variants

GENESEO, ILL. (03/21/24) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce four new additions to its family of popular 1911 Emissary pistols. These all-black variants are offered in 4.25” and 5” barrel lengths, and chambered in either 9mm or .45 ACP.

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. With the addition of these all-black variants — and with the 4.25” model now featuring a full-length dustcover with a strip of Picatinny rail — there are even more options for the defense-minded user with a desire for custom-style features.

As with the original two-tone models, these new pistols are constructed with a forged steel frame and slide for strength and durability. Sporting a black Cerakote finish, the pistols feature the eye-catching and 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 custom styling, while a flattened top strap is finished with 40 line-per-inch (l.p.i.) 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.

Inside the slide, a bushingless stainless steel bull barrel with a black nitride finish 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 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 magazines with base pads. MSRP for each of the four new variants is $1,378.

“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.”

The Emissary is truly a refined 1911 built for self-defense that blends the best elements of a tactical handgun and a custom pistol to create a gorgeous and capable firearm that stands ready to deliver.
