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
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
