Springfield® 1911 EMP® 9mm Semi-auto Pistol
Introduced in 2007, the original EMP® sent shockwaves through the carry 1911 world by proving that the legendary platform could still be refined. By re-chambering the 1911 EMP exclusively for 9mm and .40 S&W, Springfield's engineers were able to shorten the action by 1/8". That might not sound like a lot, but the new short action allowed for a smaller frame, smaller slide, and reduced grip frame circumference. The result was a pistol that preserved the ergonomics of the 1911—while making it more carry-friendly than ever.
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.
