Our Assessment: This is a Springfield Armory EMP pistol in 9mm that is based on the venerable 1911. The Enhanced Micro Pistol, however is not just another 1911. It is smaller, slimmer, has a lighter alloy frame, match-grade bull barrel and night sights. This would make a great concealed carry or home defense pistol. Ammunition is, usually, easy to find and afford and there are a plethora of loads available for both practice and defense. The trigger is far nicer than most pistols this size and will help you get the most out of its quality barrel. This pistol is in about Excellent condition with little sign of use, if any, and comes with just about everything it did brand-new. Please see our photos and good luck!
