I have purchased five Springfield Armory EMP .40 cal pistols in the last year. Two EMPs, two EMP4s, and an EMP4 CCC. Two of the five had issues where the glued in extractor broke free and locked up the slide. One so bad that I had to leave the range and go home so that I could open the slide with a rubber mallet! And getting SA to address the issues took a bit of time and effort. As I write this the EMP4 CCC is on the way to SA. But after finally reaching SA they did take them in and pin the extractors (they are doing the EMP4 CCC when they get it). Even after all this, I still love these pistols. For a $1k pistol they should pin the extractor as a routine step in manufacturing and not try to rely on glue. But there are many people who never have issues with them, even though I\'m hitting 40% failure. But again SA is making these 100% corrected, even the ones that didn\'t fail, all for free. So with all the above noted, everything else is high quality and satisfactory. Now that the extractor issues have been addressed and I have put several thousand rounds through them, they are trustworthy pieces for carry. These aren\'t Tupperware. They are good old fashioned all metal guns. They are heavier than like sized Tupperware, but that extra weight helps tame recoil. Shooting these is more fun than shooting the similarly sized S&W Shield. But the Shield has it\'s place too. However, most of the time carrying the extra weight isn\'t bothersome. I\'m moving soon so purchases have stopped, but we\'ll be getting another EMP4 CCC when we get settled into our new place. Yes, we love these pistols that much! We\'ll deal with the pain of returning it to SA to get the extractor pinned, but we\'ll trust it completely after that.

Saved up for a while to purchase this firearm for my carry. Great pistol out of the box and accurate. Very tight out of the box so a good cleaning and lubricating brought it to life. Took it to the range and put 50 rounds of federal ammo through it. No issues what so ever, did another strip and clean and finished with another 50 rounds. This pistol did everything i expected and is a great gun to shoot. A bit snappy due to the short barrel but the recoil is manageable and the more times I shot it the faster I could reacquire target and proceed. + Experience - Great experience through Buds Gun Shop. Everything went as promised and my account was updated as the steps of processing my order were complete. Definitely researching and looking here for my next purchase. Thank you!

Excellent firearm. A bit pricy but when you add the extra mag(s), holster, ammo pouch and night sights, it is actually pretty good deal. Excellent fit and finish. Exception trigger with very small reset. A bit heavy for long term concealed carry but I normally only carry a few hours a day.

This is one fine gun. I am an old man and have been carrying for many years. Buds has been my primary go to for guns for a long time. You can trust them to provide prompt shipment. I just got this gun a few weeks ago and I have run 500 - 600 rounds of all kinds of ammo with ZERO problems. The sights were pretty dim for my old eyes so I carefully applied yellow nail polish in to recessed holes in the sights and now it is very clear to see and it looks great. The weight of the EMP 40 S&W is a good plus. The recoil is very manageable. I have both the Sig P938 and Kimber Micro 9 and the felt recoil is better with EMP 40 S&W than either of these guns. This is now my EDC gun with Speer Gold Dot 180 gr. The fit and finish on this gun is very good but I did put some BooDads grip tape on the front strap to get a firmer fit. I am very satisfied with this gun and Buds service/

Like most that have stated this before me, out of the box the slide is VERY TIGHT. After putting 500 rounds through it, it has finally been broken in and the slide action is much smoother. Only having a 3inch barrel, one would expect the recoil to be greater than it is, but the frame is steel and absorbs a lot of it. It is a fantastic carry piece and it shoots quite well. This was my first purchase from Bud's and it certainly won't be my last. I placed the order on the Thursday evening and my FFL received the firearm the following Friday. I was very impressed with how quickly Bud's shipped my order.

This has always been my dream pistol to own. Finally, Buds made an offer (price) that I couldn't refuse. The EMP is everything that I was looking for in a pistol: .40 S&W, easily concealable, and a beautiful looking handgun. It arrived in outstanding condition, as promised by Buds. Have every intention of doing business with Buds in the future.
