Springfield Armory has announced the newest addition to its line of Emissary 1911s — the Emissary 4.25-inch in 9mm Luger. The new 4.25 Emissary has a two-tone finish, with a forged stainless-steel frame and forged “Tri-Top” cut carbon-steel slide. A squared trigger guard has additional room for a gloved hand. A flattened top strap is finished with 40-lines-per-inch serrations to diffuse light and reduce glare. On top, the tritium and luminescent front sight on the Emissary pairs with a Tactical Rack U-Dot rear sight. The stainless-steel 4.25-inch bull barrel is bushingless. The Emissary has a skeletonized hammer and a solid-body, flat-faced trigger. The forged-stainless frame’s front strap and mainspring housing are wrapped in a grenade-pattern texture for firm engagement, and the pattern is matched with slim-line grip panels by VZ Grips machined from G10. Each pistol comes with two top-quality nine-round stainless-steel magazines with base pads. MSRP for Model No. PX9217L is $1349.
Kimber Releases New 1911 Rapide, R7 Mako, and Limited-Edition Micro 9
Kimber Mfg. is expanding the family of Rapide (Dawn) and Rapide (Scorpius) Custom 1911 pistols, as well as the R7 Mako. Kimber is also creating a unique offering of the Micro 9 Raptor, called the Micro 9 Raptor (Shadow).
The new Rapide (Dawn) and Rapide (Scorpius) are now available in 45 ACP and 10mm in addition to the 9mm variants originally released. Build quality and specifications for these extensions will match other Rapide 1911 models: stainless-steel slides with stepped cocking serrations and slide lightening cuts; 5-inch, stainless-steel match-grade barrels and Kimber’s proprietary Stiplex textured front strap. Both models retain the same finishes as their respective predecessors, and include G-10 grips, TruGlo TFX Pro Day/Night sights, and ship with one eight-round magazine. MSRP: $1733 (10mm Rapide Dawn/Scorpius); $1713 (45 ACP Rapide Dawn/Scorpius).
The R7 Mako is now available for residents in states with magazine-capacity restrictions. Both Optics Ready (OR) and Optics Installed (OI) configurations will ship with the new 10-round R7 Mako magazines. These magazines will also be available for purchase on kimberamerica.com, as well as through all Kimber dealers featuring either a flush-fit base or a finger extension. MSRP: $35.
The Micro 9 Raptor (Shadow) is released as an exclusive offering through August 31, 2022. The Micro 9 Raptor (Shadow) features a Black KimPro II finish on a stainless-steel slide and aluminum frame. Combined with black micarta grips, the new Raptor is built to the same dimensions as the Micro 9 Raptor (Stainless) and features the new Micro 9 Tac-Mag with 7+1 capacity. The stainless-steel, match-grade barrel sports a durable DLC finish and Meprolight night sights. MSRP is $1018.
Ruger Reintroduces Marlin Model 1895 Trapper Lever-Action Rifle
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is reintroducing the Marlin Model 1895 Trapper, a short, quick-handling rifle conceived by hunting and fishing guides in Alaska and optimized for hunting or protection from dangerous animals. Chambered in 45-70 Govt., this latest Marlin offering from Ruger features a 16.17-inch cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20-inch twist. The threaded barrel (11⁄16-24), comes with a matching polished thread protector and will accommodate common muzzle devices. The stainless-steel receiver, lever, magazine tube, and barrel feature a non-glare, satin finish, as do all of the small, nickel-plated parts. The bolt is spiral-fluted and nickel-plated. The receiver-mounted Skinner Sight system is machined from solid stainless-steel bar stock and is fully adjustable. The black-laminate stock and fore end are checkered for a positive grip in all weather conditions. A generous buttpad absorbs recoil. Consumers will notice that the trademarked black and white Marlin “bullseye” found in Marlin stocks since 1922 is still there, but in red and white. MSRP for Model No. 70450 is $1349.
Palmetto State Armory Offers 5.7×28 Pistol
A full-sized polymer-framed pistol, Palmetto State Armory’s $500 PSA 5.7 Rock joins a handful of other high-capacity pistols chambered for the 5.7x28mm cartridge. Made from high-quality 416 stainless steel and advanced polymers, the PSA 5.7 Rock is fed from a supplied 23-round magazine and is operated by a single-action striker-fired trigger mechanism. The carbon-steel fluted barrel and 416 stainless-steel slide have a QPQ finish for corrosion protection. This pistol is designed to work with Glock-compatible sights. PSA notes that while its magazines will fit in a Ruger 5.7 magwell, they cannot guarantee that they will function in a Ruger 5.7 pistol. Also, due to geometry differences, the 20-round Ruger 5.7 magazine will not work in a 5.7 Rock. Other specifications include:
Weight with Empty Mag: 25 oz.
Barrel Length: 4.7 in.
Twist Rate: 1:9 in.
Slide Material: 416 Stainless Steel with QPQ Finish
Action: Delayed Blowback Striker-fired
Mag Catch: Reversible
Safety: Trigger & Striker
Accessory Rail: Picatinny
Magazines: Two 23-rd. Steel
Savage Arms Adds 110 PCS to Bolt Action Lineup
Savage Arms has added the 110 PCS (Pistol Chassis System) to its line of centerfire firearms. The 110 PCS is a bolt-action pistol built around the 110’s factory blueprinted action.
Like other 110s, the 110 PCS has a user-adjustable 2.5- to 6-pound AccuTrigger, and the action is secured in a one-piece aluminum pistol chassis from Modular Driven Technologies (MDT). The 110 PCS feeds from an AICS-style detachable box magazine. The barrel and receiver matte-black carbon steel, and the medium-contour 10.5-inch barrel has a 5⁄8-24 threaded muzzle. The one-piece chassis is machined aluminum, with a 7-inch free-floating modular fore end with M-Lok slots. The action is a left-hand bolt model with right-hand ejection and a spiral-fluted bolt body. Barricade grooves are milled into the front of the magazine well. The chassis accepts most AR-15 pistol grips. MSRP for all models is $1000, and the chamberings are 223 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, 300 BLK, 308 Win., and 350 Legend.
