they've been $1049 (with cocobolo grips) since they came out.
order a set of G10's from Larry Davidson for $65 and it's about the cost of the EMP w/ G10's

In Ohio maybe? I bought one of mine used but the other I bought new for $950 w/ the wood. Family member paid the same in Texas for his .40.

Screw those asshats. Retail + tax = no EMP for Hokie from Stockers.

Ummmmm I was supposed to pick it up at Stockers in Aug. Should be carrying it as we speak.

Meh, if I would have done that....I wouldn't have ordered the Kobra Carry, so I guess they did me a favor. :dunno:

I found the 40 Emp under $1000 a couple of times. I think they are fighting the rep they got from the first batch that they had issues with. The 9mm ones I've never seen around here for under $1000

I've always wanted one in .40 that looks like Quack's. Actually surprised I haven't bought one yet. I shot one a couple of years ago at the range and really liked it alot. It was the guy's EDC and he was very happy with it.

If I get one it would be in 40

His 9 is smoooooove. Gotta imagine .40 in that short barrel is snappy.

Lawdog, i'll bring it the next time we meet up along with the +P+ ammo.

those were +P

Lawdog gave me some +P+ to try out in the EMP

The .40 is no fun whatsoever. My boss had one and it was close to unmanageable. I am not a big fan of the .40 round, but am nowhere near a 71%er when it comes to shooting bigger caliber guns. The only things that i liked less then the EMP40 was Kahr's CW40 and an old wood gripped smith .357 snubbie

I am a fan of.40 and would love to shoot a .40 Trojan.

Kinda weird to hear someone say his. .357 snubbie I get but the EMP? The EMP has a truck spring in it and is very soft shooting .40 relative to other platforms. I'd say it's not far off from my .40 CQB. My other half shoots it with no problems and she weighs maybe 120. Granted she's used to shooting .45 but geez.... the EMP isn't bad at all IMO.

Being designed around the 9mm, are there any consistent issues with the EMP in .40? Sort of the short barreled .45 inherent problems and so forth. I know the early production run did initially, but how does yours run MD?

From what I've gathered, both calipers have the extraction issue, and POSSIBLE issues with the throat. If you tune the extractor and polish the throat and cut the inside edges, you should be good. I'm going to work on my extractor some more and polish the throat again. I ran ~150 rounds (~200 total) of 115gr round nose through it without a lot of issues, but I still have a few stove pipes. I also shot 25 124gr Gold Dots and they all worked 100%.

However, I've also heard complaints about the sights being off, and according to my shooting yesterday, mine seems to shoot a little low and to the right. However, because it was 25* outside, I'm going to test it with some other people and a better variety of ammo to ensure it's the gun before it goes back to SA.

Just for clarity. The EMP was based on the Springfield Defender which was a .45GAP.
The Defender was the original shortened design. Iirc, it was scrapped because of frame longevity when used with the .45GAP.

This is curious. I had never heard anything about a short frame life for the .45GAP. I just assumed that Springfield had axed it b/c of lack of interest. So, do you know how short the service life of the Defenders were?

Only problems mine had on either platform was the .40 wouldn't chamber non-crimped .40 reloads that I'm trying to weed out of my stockpile. My CQB would feed the ammo but they told me that their chambers are a tad loose for reliability reasons. The EMP has had no problems with factory ammo FMJ or JHP and I think I'm well over 1.5K with this gun but I'm losing track. If I wanted to get really picky, the extraction pattern was a little eratic but that was fixed with some tension. As far as putting the bullet where it's supposed to accurately and reliably, it's been perfect so far.

I really have no idea! Maybe my boss had a bad one? But the thing was ridiculous. Either way, Im going to stick with the 9mm. Im not a huge fan of the .40 round anyway. I have never thought about buying a .40 FS 1911 though, that could be good!
