Editor’s Note:

Springfield Armory’s Emissary 1911 is where classic meets modern.  It functions just like an old school 1911 but has modern touches such as the full-length guide rod and a heavy-profile, bushingless bull barrel.  This gun looks and feels quality.

Product Description

The Springfield Armory Emissary is a full-sized 5 inch 1911 pistol.  The gun features forged steel in its barrel, slide, and frame.  It has blued carbon steel slide and a stainless frame with a squared trigger guard.  The heavy-profile bull barrel makes this gun accurate with low recoil.

Springfield 1911 Ronin EMP


Designed with the 9mm cartridge in mind, the Springfield Ronin uses proprietary parts to shorten the length of the frame and action while also reducing the grip circumference. The result is a more concealable 1911 that also features improved reliability with the 9mm cartridge.

Great gun for the budget.  Strong recoil but great if you can handle it.
