Built on a durable foundation of forged steel in its barrel, slide and frame, the Emissary offers a defensive pistol with an air of custom refinement. The pistol has a beautiful two-tone finish, with a blued carbon steel slide and a stainless-steel frame with squared trigger guard. A “Tri-Top” cut to the slide gives the pistol custom-grade styling, while a heavy-profile bull barrel delivers maximum accuracy and reduces felt recoil.


The Emissary blends form and function seamlessly in a defensive-minded firearm loaded with custom-grade features.


TRI-TOP SLIDE

The Emissary features a Tri-Top cut slide with forward lightening grooves and a flattened and serrated top strap for light diffusion and glare reduction in bright light. Springfield Armory’s U-Dot™ sights are ideal for defensive situations offering fast and intuitive acquisition while providing a tritium/luminescent front sight for low light conditions.
