    My EMP in 40 S&W..

    Hello peeps!went to the shop today to return my eotech(just decided i don't really need it)and brought my KAHR mk40(nice piece but i like my cw40 better) just incase i find something interesting worth doing a trade, my plan was to trade the mk40 and the return the eotech for an XDm in 40 and maybe a CZ75b in 9mm becs i wanted a decent range gun that i can carry if i feel like it, so looking at the case and spotted the EMP 40cal, i used to own the EMP 9mm and that is one trade that i regreted, so anyway as soon as i saw it I knew my plan to get 2 pistol just went out the window, so long story short here it is..

    Don't forget to give it a thorough reliability test at the range and enjoy.

    I purchased the EMP 9mm. last week. I haven't fired it yet but I'm already carrying it in a Galco Summer Comfort holster. It's a thing of beauty. Enjoy yours!

    Gorgeous gun. I'd be curious to see how recoil is.

    The first .40 I ever fired was the EMP, and I loved it. Still thinking about picking up either the EMP or the M&P in .40, as long as the S&W Model 60 with the High-Vis sites at my local Fun Shop would stop talking to me, every time I look at it.
    I am sick, but happy

    Best purchase I ever did, the EMP 40. Great gun. If I could shave a few ounces off it, it would be with me always. Extremely accurate, recoil is insignificant, no hiccups with mine, trigger breaks just when I want it to.

    I did have magazine problems and SA sent me two new ones. Other than that, it's a great gun.

    Yes, If I can get my hands on the money I'll get the EMP 9. Nothing out there like it, as far as I'm concerned. You might be able to get a Kimber in 9mm, but I don't think they have a 40. With my experience with SA, I'll stick with them.

    Enjoy.

    Good looking gun, enjoy. I went with the SA XD40 SC, I love this weapon. Some have said the .40 is "snappy", I don't feel the recoil is all that bad. I do have a problem with the extended mag, the spring is weak and causes the weapon to Fail To Feed. You stated SA sent you a couple replacements, how did you go about that, telephone, or email?

    Even a Kimber Ultra(officer size) in 9mm would only be a chambered down .45, so it would still have all the same size dimensions as a .45, but the EMP is built around either a 9mm or .40 in sized, so it ends up being noticeably thinner. And you're right, Kimber isn't offering a .40 right now.




    just a side note... the .40 EMP is several ounces heavier than its 9mm counterpart, due to the .40 cal version having a stainless frame to accomodate the higher pressure .40 chambering. An in fact, the .40 EMP, although dimensionally smaller, weighs more than other aluminum framed .45s on the market (Colt Defender, Kimber Ultra, Springfield Micro compact).

    Actually, The EMP is the first production 1911 9mm built from the ground up. As far as size goes, overall height is more imporant to me than length for concealabilty. My Kimbers are all around 5 1/2" H. with a magazine. The EMP 9mm is 4.8". The .40 should be the same.

    Interesting question though:

    What brand of gun would you "most likely" break that belief and carry without previously firing? Though I've never carried a gun I hadn't fired probably a couple hundred non-problematic rounds through, if I had no other choice, I would most likely carry a S&W revolver or a classic Sig -- even not having fired those previously. Why? Because I've never had a misfire in any of my S&W revolvers or Sigs. YMMV
