The New Squared Away 1911 from Springfield Armory

That was absolutely a joke about the Emissary’s trigger guard.

However, if you take advantage of the rail to put a light under the gun, it makes more sense. This Emissary is light bearing in design and for holster selection. Think PHLster Floodlight if you are thinking holsters.

From Springfield Armory,

Tasked with a special mission, the Emissary bridges defensive and custom pistols delivering a bold and capable addition to the Springfield Armory family of 1911’s.

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.
