    My New Springfield 9mm EMP

    First of all I would like to thank Steve at Pistols and Parts. Advertiser on this board, from Columbus, Ohio. I clicked on his ad and called him. Nice Guy, easy and pleasant to work with.
    Filled out the paperwork at my local gun store $30.00. B/4 you ask, I gave him a chance to work with me. Anyway, WHAT A SWEET SHOOTING FIREARM. Used WWB/Blazer brass/ Speer Gold Dot 147.
    Lubed it up with mobil1 15/50. Got 3mags with package, only put 5,7,9,rds in ea and rotated. Started with wwb,ran good for20rds and then started FTE. tight chamber, switched to Blazzer,over 150rds like a sewing machine, excellent holes in paper. Now fellows, that front site is a Trijcon and I got one TOUGH time getting a sight picture, old eyes. Went to GD to finish up and NO PROBLEMS. Going to run 200 more BB thru it and 10 GD and if no problems, CARRY.
    I will carry Appendix in a Tucker Urban Impact/Rafter's Belt.

    +2 on the pics. I'm thinking a 1911-style 9mm might be a good next gun and need to see some pr0n to help my decision!

    Try some different cheap ammo thru it too, to test how it does with different ones. Never know when it may be the only thing on the shelf and you'll need to know how it works in your gun.

    Mine did horrible, but Springfield worked it over and it's done great since then.

    I have the Micro Compact in .45. The EMP wasn't out when I bought mine. I too had some quirky misfeeds at first and I found it didn't like other magazines. (Wilson Combat, go figure) Now it runs 100%.
