I stopped at the local GS this afternoon just to see what was on the shelf, recently traded etc.

I didn’t really see much of anything interesting under the glass. I have been thinking of a new 1911 in commander size, when I inquired if anything was coming in soon.

The owner returned with the “Emissary“ saying he just got this in.

I have not seen/heard of this new gun.

I shot a couple mags just as it came out of the box with no problems here at home. I’m hoping to get a chance to put some rounds on paper soon.

I've had my Emissary a few weeks now. I haven't shot it a lot yet as I've been busy deer hunting. However, I was able to put a few magazines through it a week or so back and really like how it shoots. IMO, it is a lot of 1911 for the money.

@flh : Do you have any leads on a holster? I contacted White Hat Holsters on Black Friday and they were not sure if one of the OWB holsters would work.

I have a couple of Galco holsters for my Springfield Milspec, the Emissary fit nicely, but with square trigger guard I have the same concern, I have e-mail Galco inquiring if a new holster style will be needed .

Update Galco does not make a holster for the Emissary at this time.

I ordered a Mitch Rosen

I think I may order the Mitch Rosen myself.

It's a nice looking 1911ish gun, but I prefer a solid blue or black finish, no "squared trigger guard", and no "light rail", so it's not for me. Hope it shoots well for you.

Thanks for the information! Do you know what the lead time is on the Rosen? White Hat Holsters is supposed to contact me when they have more information.
From the Rosen web 10-12 weeks, I ordered my holster from the Springfield web my cc has been charged, but as of yet to receive notification of a delivery date.

@Tundra5.7

I received my MR holster today the fit & finish is very good, one problem that some may have issues with is the lack of sweat shield,

I added pics of my Galco holster for my SA mil-spec as can be seen the sweat shield on the Galco is much higher,

The last pic is of the Emissary in the Mil-Spec holster .

Thanks for posting the pictures. Think I may order the MR from the Springfield site.
