Has anyone bought the new SA 1911 EMPs in .40? How do you like it?
I am thinking buying one for my wife as her hands are pretty small.
EMP 9 26 oz.
EMP 40 33 oz.
Micro Compact .45 26 oz.
After owning and shooting the EMP 9 and Micro Compact 45 for about a year now I finally broke down and bought the EMP 40. Handles and shoots like the EMP 9. But the first thing I noticed is the extra weight.
One of the things I like about the EMP 9 and the MC 45 are they are both compact and lightweight making them excellent carry guns. I have worn both for extended periods of time and almost forget they are there.
I haven't worn the EMP 40 yet, but I have a feeling I am going to notice it.
Shoots great though. I like it overall.

I've shot and handled the little EMP in 9mm---liked it a lot! At this time, all my pistols are in 9mm or .45 ACP---don't feel like adding another cartridge.
