Description Additional Information
 
Low prices on the Springfield Armory 1911 EMP start at Champion Firearms. Springfield's new pistol is called the "EMP" (for Enhanced Micro Pistol). The EMP is the first 1911 pistol specifically scaled down to the cartridge dimensions of the 9mm or 40S/W, where every other manufacturer's 1911 design is a 45ACP frame just chambered in 9mm or 40S/W. This slick little pistol has a 3-inch barrel and weighs only 23 ounces, yet it has a 9-round magazine capacity and a large enough grip that your little finger doesn't dangle helplessly in the air.

To put the EMP in proper perspective, you need to realize that a Walther PPK/S in .380 ACP weighs a tad over 22 ounces and is only slightly shorter and thinner than this new pistol. The new EMP measures 6.6 inches long. In effect, Springfield Armory has designed a 9mm 1911 pistol that is only slightly larger than a .380 pocket pistol.

To accomplish this Springfield made alterations to some 15 different parts of the 1911 pistol. The slide is shortened, and in doing so, the Springfield design engineers also had to shorten the extractor, the firing pin, and the firing pin spring. The EMP's frame has also been shortened, and this also required the shortening of the trigger bow. (Springfield refers to this new shortened and enhanced firing mechanism as a "short-action 1911" kind of like the way riflemen have been referring to the different action sizes of bolt-action rifles.) Also shortened was the plunger tube and spring that interacts with the slide stop and thumb safety. Finally, Springfield reduced the diameter of the pistol's grip frame.
