my new Emissary
Why wouldn't they count? I know you make a fine gun, but if you did that shooting offhand that is beautiful and if you were on a rest it is still remarkable. If it's a Ransom Rest, well, at least you're a fine gunsmith! Ha! Awesome target and I can't wait to someday get my hands on one of your guns, Sir.
Do these count? Lol View attachment 809421
my new Emissary How do you like the Emissary so far? I think it is interesting, but I also get many of the critiques leveled against it. I've never held, much less shot one, but I like the fact that SA appears to be trying to give us more options in their 1911 line and I like that a lot.

Thank you for the reply. I am glad you enjoy it and I hope you continue to. I hope it is a sign of things to come from SA and that they continue to adjust their lineup to the wants and needs of their customer.i was a buyer, "at first sight", when i saw the video reviews and the pictures.
i try not to ever let critics sway my opinions or thoughts on what I like.
it's a 1911, with slim grips, i think they are a plastic like material. i can get my hand around the grips with no problems.
the squared trigger guard is not a problem, my fingers can rest under it, or, the left hand can wrap around the right (shooting hand)
it has the rear sight like the hellcat, U-shaped.
it NEVER failed to feed, NEVER failed to fire, NEVER failed to extract, NEVER failed to eject.
i have only 150 rounds thus far, more next week,
i shot 50 rds, FMJ S&B, and 100 rds, FMJ Winchester white box.....
the take down is easy, for my first time doing, since we need that little tool, to capture the RSA, or a paper clip.
it came from the factory lubed, so i could have just taken it to the range the same day i got it, but me, being me, i took it home, striped it, cleaned, and lubed it...lol
sadly, the LGS was selling it at FULL retail.....but hey, i paid more for my 2 Dan Wessons, and my Korth revolver....
comes with 2 , 8 rd mags, and the RSA tool.
the LGS only had 2, one was sold when i got there, then this one.....
i wasn't going to second guess any thoughts or hesitating on buying it NOW.......
i could not be any happier with it's performance, as well as mine.
in time, i will get better groupings like on all my other 1911's...
also, this makes it my 3rd S/A 1911.
