Springfield 1911 EMP .40 S&W Pistol, 3″ Bull Barrel, 8 1 Capacity, Bi-Tone Finish – Springfield PI9240LP
Innovation can take many forms. Sometimes it’s a brand new idea – like the XD. Other times innovation is the fine-tuning of a classic – like the EMP.
How could the enduring design that is the 1911 be improved? Springfield Armory® answered that question in 2007 with the introduction of the Enhanced Micro Pistol™. The EMP changes what a compact 1911 can be.
The action of the EMP is 1/8 inch shorter than that of the original 1911. This translates into several concrete advantages for the shooter. The shorter grip radius produces a shockingly comfortable shooting experience. You have to shoot the EMP to believe how controllable it is. The shorter dimensions also work to increase reliability – something that’s crucial in a concealed carry pistol. And of course, the overall dimensions are one of the smallest 1911s out there.
The good news doesn’t stop with the innovative design. The EMP comes loaded with all the features you expect in a 1911 of this class – like low profile 3-Dot tritium combat sights and a match grade fully supported and ramped barrel. And with 9 1 rounds of 9mm or 8 1 rounds of .40 SW, the EMP packs an amazing amount of punch in one of the smallest 1911s ever.
If you’re looking for a 1911 to carry with you every day, look no further than the Springfield Armory® EMP®. Sometimes innovation changes everything.
