    Here's a first! Custom SA EMP 1911 EMP CUSTOM!

    As far as I know, this is the first time that there has been any custom work on the new tiny 1911 EMP.
    As far as I know, this might be the first custom Springfield EMP 3/4 bob custom out there. Maybe the first custom?:eek And no, it is not just a matter of slapping full size parts in.
    This started as a stock EMP that the custom wanted the butt rounded on to keep it from eating up the heal of his hand. Well one thing lead to another and I worked over a Ed Brown bobtail housing to make up this "3/4" bob. It did turn out nice and is now VERY comfortable to shoot and comes right up to aim.
    Custom "3/4" bob job. Can be done to the officer frame as well.
    Target Crown the barrel
    Full tuning and reliability work
    Crisp 4.5 lb trigger
    Rhino stippling on front and top half of MSH
    Custom made 1911 style thumb safety to eliminate the ambi safety.
    Duracoat Combat Black finish.
    And a lot of fluffing and buffing that I do when I take one apart anyway. Wolff springs.

    I think that this makes for one very cool pocket rocket!

    Very nice indeed! I've seen that round butt on a Wilson Sentenial and LOVE it! How hard is it to do that and who can, besides you? That Rhino finish is also pretty slick. I'm planning on getting an emp and want to get it checkered but I do like that rounded butt. Do you do mail in work?
