Springfield Armory 1911

Springfield Armory® 1911 Semiautomatic Pistols
A time-tested, proven design
Durable construction and reliable performance
For duty, personal protection or competition

From battlefields around the world to shooting competition winner circles, the Springfield family of Model 1911 semiautomatic pistols has been making itself known for decades. Renowned for durability, reliability and accuracy, these handguns consistently deliver top-notch performance in the field, at home and at the range.


EMP™ 1911A1
Springfield’s Enhanced Micro Pistol (EMP) is the exceptional result of a successful effort to re-engineer the 1911 into a compact, short-action pistol. It’s the smallest, most easily concealed 1911, and is loaded with features you’d expect from a superior firearm. The 3" stainless steel match-grade barrel delivers outstanding accuracy. The long, aluminum, match-grade trigger breaks cleanly at 5-6 lbs. The fixed, low-profile combat rear sight and dovetail front sight have three tritium dots for easy viewing in low light. A dual-spring, full-length guide rod recoil system makes the EMP pleasing to shoot and cycle flawlessly. Forged aluminum-alloy frame with durable black hardcoat finish reduces weight. Forged stainless steel satin finish contrasts nicely with the handsome thinline cocobolo hardwood grips. Available in 9mm with three nine-round magazines with slam pads, and in .40 S&W with three eight-round magazines with slam pads.
