I think Im in love. ......................with the gun not rusty.
I am not sure about the size of the new Springfield, but it looks about the same size as a Kimber Ulta CDP II. Not exactly big pocket or BDU size, I could be wrong though!!
Is a pocket gun relative to the size of the man...?
I was only goin by the description on the link. But I understood it to compare the new EMP to a micro~compact as in the pic below, and you can see it IS smaller than the micro. I have a Springfield micro compact 1911 & to me that is a small weapon, perhaps I am a bigger than average & have bigger paws than some. I put a hogue grip sleeve on my XD45 to fit my hand better So with that being said.... if the EMP is tipping the scales @ 23 oz. & only 6 1/2 " long it would be a pocket or a back up gun for me. Perhaps I miss understood the the S.A. site...
I didn't need to see this. Just last week I was looking around for a 9mm in the 1911 form.
Springfield says: "The world got its first glimpse of the short-action 1911 in 2005 with a prototype Springfield gun called the 'Defender.' Chambered in 45 GAP, this rare gun received rave reviews from numerous firearms publications. We decided to launch this new class of 1911 in the more popular 9mm caliber in the EMP."
Translation: "We couldn't make the gun work in GAP, so let's try it in a small caliber."
Interesting gun, but I'm curious to see if it actually works reliably. My general experience with small 1911s is that they don't work as well as versions of Commander size and larger. Maybe Springfield learned enough from the GAP experience that they can make this one run, though.
I'm not going to run out and trade my Glock 26 for one just yet.
