1911 EMP® Handguns

If Goldilocks grew up and found herself on shiny side of a gun counter she would undoubtedly find the EMP®. Nestled between the full size 1911 and the 911, the patented EMP is just right.

Reengineered around the 9mm cartridge, the Springfield Armory® Enhanced Micro Pistol (EMP) translates the benefits of the full-size 1911 into a smaller platform perfectly suited for today’s most popular defense caliber. Easy carrying and smooth shooting, the EMP is built with a forged frame and slide to last a lifetime.

To capitalize on the smaller caliber refinements, the EMP features a shortened frame and action compared to its full-size counterpart. The reduced grip radius produces a remarkably comfortable shooting experience and makes the pistol a concealable and confident side arm.

Available only from Springfield Armory, the EMP strikes the perfect balance and delivers a 1911 that’s just right.


The 1911 EMP® is built from the ground up for the 9mm cartridge, offering you a compact and comfortable 1911 designed for CCW. With a frame custom designed for the exceedingly popular defensive round, the EMP® offers shooters a smaller and more compact frame fore to aft for a maximized grip. The result is a gun that combines the classic charm of the 1911 with cutting-edge design features ideal for concealed carry.

  • Forged Frame and Slide

    The forged steel slide of the EMP® is both rugged and practically indestructible, while a patented forged aluminum alloy frame keeps the gun lightweight and packable.

  • Lightweight

    Extremely light and handy, the EMP is custom crafted for reliability, controllability and easy portage.

  • 3 Magazines Included

    In a real defensive gunfight, nobody wishes they had less ammo. The EMP® comes standard with three 9-round magazines replete with slam pads.

  • Fully Supported Bull Barrel

    A stainless steel match grade fully supported heavy bull barrel keeps the EMP® shooting reliably and true despite its diminutive dimensions.

  • Ambi Thumb Safety

    The EMP® offers an ambidextrous thumb safety that is the perfect size and in the ideal location for instant access.

  • Posi-Lock Checkering

    Unique Posi-Lock checkering locks the EMP into your hand for a rock-solid grip. (on 4-inch models only)


The 1911 EMP® Champion™ Concealed Carry Contour is the pinnacle among concealed carry pistols. Designed with discreet carry in mind, the capable pistol features a meticulously contoured frame that provides maximum control with a minimum footprint underneath clothing. The contoured lower rear portion of the frame makes the pistol extremely easy to conceal while still offering a full, comfortable grip for effective control.
