So I was at my LGS looking to order a Springfield Loaded Champion, and learned that Springfield is behind on their production of 1911's. They estimated 6-12 months before they would get any new ones in.
While I was there the Springfield EMP in 9mm caught my eye. I asked to see it and I am not reconsidering buying the EMP. The price was listed at $1299. Another shop in my area was selling it for $1289. Those prices seemed very high to me. Can How much have EMPs been selling for in your area? I hear that the compact 1911's can sting when shooting a .45 round. Is there a big difference with a 9mm? Thanks in advance for any insight.
