Innovation can take many forms. Sometimes it’s a brand new idea – like the XD(R). Other times innovation is the fine-tuning of a classic – like the EMP(R). How could the enduring design that is the 1911 be improved? Springfield Armory(R) answered that question in 2007 with the introduction of the Enhanced Micro Pistol(R). The EMP(R) changes what a compact 1911 can be. Includes three 9-round magazines.
