Springfield 1911 Enhanced Micro Pistol emp

The Springfield 1911 Enhanced Micro Pistol is a semi-automatic medium-frame pistol chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W. Just like the original 1911A1, it is recoil operated, so the expanding gases that push the projectile out also forces the slide back and by doing so ejects the casing and chambers another round.

Part of the reason 1911s are so popular is because they have a rather light recoil due to its solid metal frame.

Comparing the EMP to other Springfield 1911s, it’s noticeably smaller. This is because it is chambered for smaller cartridges, so it doesn’t need as much weight to function comparably.

The EMP is hammer fired and has a single-action only trigger that sets off the action with a 5- to 6-pound pull. It has two safety mechanisms. A grip safety that rests within the beavertail curve below the hammer. The grip safety is automatically engaged when not in use, so it cannot fire unless the trigger is actually pulled. This means no accidental discharges if dropped. The second safety is a manual safety that turns on and off with a flip of a switch.
