View Full Version : EMP 9mm Magazines - 10 rounders?

I know the grip length on the EMP is a bit smaller than other 3" 1911s. I also believe it is a bit narrower as well? Would standard 10-round 9mm mags work, or am I SOL?

Anyone know of a way around this? :crying:

I may be wrong but the EMP magazines are "special" and are not like other 1911 magazines. So no they will not work.

That's what I assumed, being that the grip dimensions are specific to the gun. Figured I would ask anyway. Guess I just need to practice reloading more! :crying:

yep, SOL. you could try to find if there are any extended base pads that fit Mec-Gar mags and modify them to fit.

Take a trip over to that popular 1911 forum and ask a member named "Logman"
He is the EMP mag Guru!

Yea I already have two flush cut mags by Logman. :rofl:

Great mags...but if I can get 10 rounds vs. 9 that would be extremely helpful. Less reloads = faster time. If the stages were all classifiers, I would be a C class, my first try! And that's with a completely blown stage. Using 9+1 I "could" shoot 10 rounds and just reload from dry, but if I can keep one in the chamber my reloads and follow ups will be even faster.

I realize that,.........:upeyes:

However, this idea was discussed before about grafting two mag bodies.:whistling:

I know anything is possible, but I don't have a lot of money to spend, and I'm not going to spend a lot of money to get 1 more round.

But, if he can do it for cheap I probably will.

Get a lo-pro magwell put on it. I still think your crazy for trying to shoot uspsa with a damn EMP!!! LOL

I shot one local match with mine when i got it to break it in and that was my excuse all day for shooting so bad lol! It is a good shooting gun, but not that good

08-03-2011, 05:11
Mine is!!! :)

It really wasn't that bad, I mean it's harder for sure...especially mag changes, but I figure if I can get good with this, when I eventually get a dedicated SSD/L10 gun I'll be even better. :rofl:

Some schools of though would say, yes, others would say no.... I personally think that the shear practice alone will make you better at performing them, but when you change size of mags and gun, things change in your mind. That's why i stick with 1911's and Glock's so I am always practicing no matter what im doing.

Well this is the only one I can practice with and shoot so it's all I got. I have an XD but I don't care for it, I don't want to shoot production with it. Everything else is .22 which isn't legal. Oh well!

I also don't want to run a magwell, as it's my carry gun. I already have issues printing, and I don't want to spend anymore money on the EMP. :rofl:

I mean, why not just turn the EMP into an open gun? Compensated 3" with a giant magwell, extended mag release, and red dot. Awesome! :animlol:

In good news, I'm getting my CR Speed belt/pouches and my Blade-Tech SRB holster today. Yay! Now I just need the rest of my reloading stuff so I can actually use it.

Yep,.......I had LogMan weld up two flush mags, & I removed the ambi-safety.

Load up some 9mm to some major PF for open and let me know how that works :)...hmmm I wonder how hot that 9 would have to be to reach major out of a 3" gun.

I think for getting started the EMP would work fine for you, if you ever go to a full size I will bet it will seem so much easier for you.

Probably...my goal is to sell my XD and pick up probably an STI Trojan or something similar...but that won't be for probably for a long time.

I got my gear and set it up already. Just doing a few quick reload/draw/dryfire drills I can tell this gear makes a LOT of difference. Maybe not in initial speed, but it's much nicer, easier, and smoother. Can't wait to try it out in a couple of weeks.

For an inexpensive 9mm 1911 look at a RIA Tactical.

I think I am going to keep my M&P and shoot SSP/Production for the most part, and shoot single stack when I feel like dropping $$$$ on .45.

I have some crap gear for the M&P and okay stuff for Single Stack. I will invest in better after I finalize my choice and shoot some matches. I have my fingers crossed I am going to try to be at the USPSA match coming up.

any thumb safety will work, you just have to fit it.

Remove the magazine and push the disassembly lever in ( it's the button right above your thumb on the left side) pull the slide back slightly and up which will release it then pull the slide forward off the barrel. To reassemble, with the spring on the barrel, slip the slide to the rear of the frame and then down which will lock it back in place.

Why not just take 2 stock mags, cut / weld for an extended mag, if allowed for competition ?

Might take some testing to get the right spring i'd guess. but shouldnt be that bad...

faawrenchbndr
08-13-2011, 17:10
Where's the spring going to come from? EMP uses a completely different spring.

There are a LOT of possibilities for that, too many guns around with a huge variety, something will fit.

Send me two empty mag bodies and i'll take care of the welding/fabricating.

You have to dig up some creative imagination for the spring though.
