The Springfield Armory Ronin EMP is built around the 9mm.
 Comment(s)

Last year, Springfield Armory unveiled the Ronin. It immediately garnered quick praise, bringing a striking two-tone 1911 to the market. The Ronin paired a forged slide and frame to a hammer-forged barrel, and the pistol included solid components and accurate fire. In short, the Ronin delivered everything a 1911 purist could want, and at an affordable price. Now the line matures with the release of the Springfield Armory Ronin EMP, built for EDC.

Springfield Armory Ronin EMP

This gun comes ready to carry, available in either a 3- or 4-inch configuration. The Enhanced Micro Pistol (EMP) configuration delivers a host of factory modifications to the traditional 1911 form. Built around the 9mm cartridge, the EMP features a frame with reduced circumference and diminutive dimensions. The 4-inch Ronin EMP also brings 10+1 rounds to the fight. Meanwhile, the tiny 3-inch model still maintains 9+1 at the ready.

Ronin EMP 3-Inch

The 3-inch Ronin EMP features a bushingless bull barrel from forged stainless steel, complete with a fully supported ramp. The thick profile delivers strength, rigidity and accuracy, according to Springfield Armory. A forged aluminum frame contributes to the lightweight package.

Ronin EMP 4-Inch

The 4-inch Ronin EMP offers another highly concealable option, this one with a capacity of 10+1 in an EDC 1911. The compact slide and reduced-size frame comprises a gun many will enjoy both shooting and carrying. Springfield shortened both the frame and action, along with the barrel and slide. As such, it utilizes 11 proprietary distinct from a standard 1911. But the reduced grip radius stands out for delivering comfort and control.

The new Ronin EMP pistols bring a lot of features into a 1911 design built around the 9mm cartridge. Better still, these guns are designed for EDC, and priced at under $900, they will no doubt gain popularity among concealed carriers. For even more info, please visit springfield-armory.com.
