Springfield's Lightweight Champion series will have a 4-inch EMP offering which of course translates to an increased sight radius while still shying away from being a full-sized GI model-- but this is a 9-shot .40S&W. Because apparently this is something people want (?)

Speaking of full-size, Springer's 1911 Range Officer now comes in a sweet stainless model with a mix of upper end features (extended beavertail, adjustable rear sights, skeli trigger, etc) without the corresponding custom gun price point.
