1911 EMP® 4” Champion™ .40SW

For over 100 years, the 1911 pistol design has earned high praise for its near-perfect ergonomics, reliability, and effectiveness.

Springfield Armory® engineered the original EMP® with an all-new patented short action. Seventeen re-designed parts later, the EMP® came out a smaller, more comfortable, and more concealable package optimized for the smaller 9MM and .40SW calibers. Among the community of those who know, it has earned a reputation as one of the most shootable compact pistols ever.

The all-new 4″ Champion™ offers a longer four-inch barrel that presents increased sight radius and more practical accuracy. Let’s not forget the extra velocity the longer barrel adds to any given cartridge.

For over 100 years, the 1911 pistol design has earned high praise for its near-perfect ergonomics, reliability, and effectiveness.

Springfield Armory® engineered the original EMP® with an all-new patented short action. Seventeen re-designed parts later, the EMP® came out a smaller, more comfortable, and more concealable package optimized for the smaller 9MM and .40SW calibers. Among the community of those who know, it has earned a reputation as one of the most shootable compact pistols ever.

The all-new 4″ Champion™ offers a longer four-inch barrel that presents increased sight radius and more practical accuracy. Let’s not forget the extra velocity the longer barrel adds to any given cartridge.

Better yet, the EMP® 4″ offers an extra half inch of height, providing plenty of room for a strong and positive grip. The EMP® 4″ is loaded with extras like a fiber optic front sight and two-dot, low-profile combat rear sight for effortless target acquisition. Ambidextrous safety levers, a match-grade barrel, and Posi-Lok™ grip texture to the front strap add extra high value benefits for the serious shooter.

Not only is the new EMP® 4″ a controllable gun, it packs ten rounds (in 9mm) plus one more in the chamber. That’s in a slender single stack pistol, not a thicker double stack design. In fact, the new EMP® 4″ offers the same reduced grip circumference that made the original so successful.

Looks aren’t everything, but the Cocobolo wood grips and two-tone forged stainless steel slide and black anodized aluminum (9MM) or Carbon Steel Black Armory Kote™ (.40SW) frame make the EMP® a looker sure to turn heads at the range. But you know it’s what’s under the covers that counts.

While the EMP® 4″ might be the perfect carry gun, it’s new size makes it ideal for home defense, concealed carry or a little fun at the range. Pick one up at your local gun store. You’ll feel the difference.

California Proposition 65

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to California consumers about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.

Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.

Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. Proposition 65 became law in November 1986, when California voters approved it by a 63-37 percent margin. The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
