I would still like to own one but does worry me some that I might regret it. I have a XD 9 sub that shoots everytime and use for carry. But still would love to have the EMP also. Just a little concerned. I also have read that small 1911's should be avoided. Interested in what you guys have to say also.
It wasn't me, I swear! I had issues galore with mine, and would still consider buying another. I take pride in being one of only a handful of EMP owners in the area, so you'll need to consult with me first. At least tell me where you saw it for sale.

Mrbremt, welcome to the club!

Yup, I had slight problems, but that is because they cut the chamber just a smidgen too small. They tried to make the Emp the most accurate possible pistol. I sent it back and they did some work on it and it now runs like a clock. After coming back from Springfield, it has not had ONE FTF or FTE. Also, I asked them for a single sided safety and they took care of it for free and left me the ambi safety. That plus free overnight shipping and it was back in 6 days and you can't beat it!

Range Report

Well I made it out to the Range this morning to give the EMP a test. I really like it so far It took me a few magazines to get the feel of it but it shoots very nice and I like the trigger pull. The only thing I would like to be different is the slide release being back more. I just couldn't reach it with my thumb like I can on my XD. I ran 200 rounds of WWB 115g through it and had one jam were the round didn't go up into the chamber. I thought that went pretty well considering all the stories I had heard about the first several hundred rounds having issues. I shot a magazine of Ranger 124 +p+ and had 2 occasions that the round jambed on the feed ramp and 2 fail to fire where the primer was hit but didn't go bang. I feed them again and then they fired. The range master came over more than once to look and he really liked it. He had not seen one in person before. I think it is one great looking gun and I think its a keeper!!!

Second Range report on my new EMP

Made it to the range again today and got 200 more rounds through it. I started at 7 yards and was able to keep nice groups of 5 then moved back to 10 yards and had slightly larger groups but I was very happy with it!! I had NO problems with feeding or FTF's etc. It ran flawless I love this thing!! BTW I shot PMC 115g FMJ rounds today. Last time I shot WWB.
