    Just acquired an EMP4 and need some extra magazines!

    Hi all! I just acquired a my first Springfield Armory 1911 (an EMP4 in .40 S&W) and love it, but haven't had any success finding the 9 round magazines on-line. Does anyone have a lead or is the only source the factory? I've replaced the factory sights with Trijicon HDs (Orange front) and the grips with some nice burl, walnut. My gunsmith cleaned up the trigger, so its shooting great and I'm carrying it in a Sparks Leather "Summer Special II" IWB holster. If I can just get a few extra magazines, I'll be "good to go"!

    I don't see a 9x40 magazine even at SA. Is the one in the picture a 9 shot?

    Yes, it is a 9 round magazine and (fortunately) I was able to find the answer to my original question by calling Springfield Armory directly. Good news and bad. The "bad news" is that the magazines are so new, they haven't began shipping them out to other distributors yet. The GOOD news is that their customer service representative not only told me that they had the magazines in stock, she pointed out that as a new owner of one of these pistols, I could purchase extra magazines at a significant discount if I'd just place my order using a coupon enclosed within the pistol's case! For only $19.99, I could get as many as I wished to buy! I ordered up three additional magazines to go with the three I received with the gun and am now a "happy camper"!

    If bought brand new did you register it and should be eligible for the promotion of 4 magazines, paddle holster, and mag holder? Have same pistol and filled out on line form. On a good note you should be very happy with your EMP4. Very nice shooting and accurate to boot.
