Springfield Armory is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning family of 1911 pistols ” the Ronin EMP. Combining the popular features of the Ronin Series with the patented CCW-ready modifications that made the Enhanced Micro Pistol (EMP) the smallest 1911 in the world, the result is a potent and packable EDC 1911 built specifically for the 9mm cartridge. Rather than simply shortening the barrel and slide like most compact 1911 pistols, the EMP also shortens the frame and action . In fact, the pistol features 11 proprietary parts distinct from a standard 1911 as a result of this adaptation. The end result is a pistol with a reduced grip radius for both enhanced comfort and concealability.
