Combining forged steel construction for durability with a beautiful two-tone finish, the Emissary is now available in a 5-inch model in 9mm as well as a 4.25-inch version in .45 ACP. Both pistols feature grenade-pattern checkering on their stainless steel frames and G10 grips, as well as a Tri-Top cut to their carbon steel slides, giving them custom-grade styling. In addition, a heavy-profile stainless steel forged bull barrel delivers maximum accuracy and reduces felt recoil.
