    Springfield emp what is your opinion

    I've always been a striker fire kind of guy but I recently handled one of these and think I may have to buy it. So I know its not a traditional 1911 but it has the same basic function and design. So I guess opinions are welcome what are your thoughts on this gun?

    I currently carry an Xdm as my main ccw so a grip safety is a non-issue for me.

    It's probably the only 3" 1911 style gun I would buy.

    Great little 3". Accurate as hell, light and easy to carry. I rank it up there with my Sig 229. Nice little pistol I dont think you could go wrong buying one. I've had zero problems with mine and it shoots what ever I put in it. Great summer carry pistol.

    Re: Springfield emp what is your opinion

    Well yesterday I found a used emp in 40 and it followed me home. I also have one in 9mm on order but they can't give me an idea of when it may be in. As far as fit and finish, it is as it should be for a pistol of this price point. This weekend I hope to put some rounds through it. On a side note Friday I will be picking up a Sig p938, my wife wanted one and that's what she'll get.

    If they still come with the extended basepad on the mag and you want to flush it up post back,I'll tell you where to find the guy that mods them.

    I was wondering about that I had seen some, that were flush.

    I have fired one a few times. They are very nice little guns if you are comfortable with the 1911 style platform.

    Re: Springfield emp what is your opinion

    Okay went out and put 250 rounds through the emp this weekend. I love the way the gun shoots very accurate with everything I put in it. I did have one failure to go into battery, and one fte both were one the last magazine I shot. The last magazine I was shooting 155gr blazer full metal jacket flat nose. I did shoot 100 rounds of 155gr hydro shock with out a problem.
    On a side note put a 150 rounds of federal classic hollow point through the sig p938 this weekend. No issues at all very fun gun to shoot and the wife loves it. My wife put another 100 rounds of blazer fmj and about 50 of federal fmj all function great no problems.

    I want one, but fortunately there are none available at this time, since I don't have the money for one right now.

    I have one in 9mm, really like it. Wonderful size for concealed carry, plus I like all metal handguns (no offense intended), single stack 9mm's just work for me. Be advised that the EMP can be a little fussy with JHP ammo, but rest assured that Springfield customer service may well be the best in the industry, IMO, meaning they will (or should) polish the feed ramp if you encounter an issus. A little funky with the field stripping (collar needed to be placed over the guide rod spring assembly) but other than that, it's straight 1911 style. My best to you with your EMP, never regretted getting mine.
