Springfield 1911 EMP 4″ — An Ideal Concealed Carry Weapon for 1911 Enthusiasts

Springfield 1911 EMP 4″

Imagine having a 1911 style pistol that is less weight, has a thinner frame, and is more comfortable to carry than other 4″ government model 1911 pistols. Imagine no more. Springfield has introduced a new player in their 1911 pistol line. The EMP 4″ Light Weight Champion. Even though this firearm is not chambered in .45 ACP like the majority of 1911 guns, its 9mm and .40 cal options give you some advantages you can’t find with a larger caliber. This new pistol weighs in at only 31 ounces with its forged aluminum alloy frame. It also comes with three 10-round magazines and has a fiber optic front sight that is sure to have the shooter hitting their target.
