I bought a springfield armory emp 40 cal. and I love this hand gun I've put a lot of rounds thru it,,, no jam ups,,,, a very nice hand gun,,, my only problame I have is the slide is so hard for me to pull back,,, I went to the gun shop where I bought it and showed it to the sales man and we tried the 9 mm and it was easer to pull the slide back but because I like the 40 cal I'm keeping it,,, I guess it's something I have to live with

Bought the Springfield Loaded Micro Compact .45 Cal. after seeing it first at a local gun show, and then following up with the dealer at their shop the next day. I owned a Kimber Pro Carry II in 2009, and loved it, but in gaining my CCW, was looking for a smaller pistol in same 1911 design. Not knowing much about the 1911 Springfield, the salesman explained the exceptional lifetime warranty, price ($1,059 - ouch!), and reliability. He said (and showed me the attached pamphlet from Springfield) that the Micro Compact is the "Official sidearm used by FBI swat teams." I purchased the damn thing, expecting high satisfaction. I took it to the range, and fired around 500 rounds through it. I was pleased that with the first 6-round magazine, I struck the target twice at around 40-45 feet. The weapon did have some FTF (Fail-to-feed), and Stovepipes for those 500 rounds, but after performs flawlessly. However, the recoil on this particular firearm is very crisp - too crisp - when compared to th...[Read More]
I bought a used micro Compact bi tone(PX980)that I aquired 3 day ago. I to the range today the weapoon shot flawlessly it is truely a work of art I shoot Lawman 230 gr. also I shoot 230 gr. Blazers. it took two magazines to get my sight picture right at 25 yards this little firearm is totaly accurate and dependable this is my new go to weapon for Conceal and Carry on a scale of 1- 10 this weapon is a ten there were no jams or any other issuse Hats off to Springfield
Took my new compact LW micro bi tone to the range yesterday shoot winchester 185 FMJ white box through it about 100 rounds operated flawless no jam. Shot @ 3, 5, 7 not to bad shoots about 3 inches and about 1 1/2 to left low point of aim point of impact @ 10 yards way low have to aim at the neck of the target to hit the chest, all in all it is not a target pistol but a good carry and bedside pistol. Fit and finish it is a beautiful pistol easy to handle and carry, I am a big guy about 6' 5" and did not think I would ever buy a compact pistol until I picked up this one very comfortable fit and feel. It is a bit pricey over 1100.00 with tax and all but I think it is well worth it.
I went to buy the new (at that time) XD-series. It was getting great reviews. But it felt all wrong in my hand, blocky grip, I just didn't feel the love. Then the wise salesman showed me the Micro. What a beauty! I took it to the range and didn't shoot it very well, plus it jammed a bit. The salesman worked on my grip, and exchanged a magazine for a Kimber mag. (he had given me a Wilson Combat, and the S/A Micro did not like it, go figure) Back to the range. I'd say it had some growing pains for the first 50 rounds. After that, it has been flawless. I bought a Don Hume IWB holster and was surprised at how flat the Micro stayed to my body. I'd actually forgot I had it on around the house. (I didn't have a CCW yet) I bought the Springfield over the Kimber because of the claims of excellent customer service, which thankfully, I've never needed. If I were to nit-pick, I get some stains in the serrations of the slide that are hard to remove. Little black dots. Rust? Not really. I clean them...[Read More]
