    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:

    Right behind you...
    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 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

    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.
