I picked up my EMP today and it will immediately be taking a trip to springfield. The biggest issue that I have may not even be springfield's fault. The tritium vile in the front sight is off center and appears to be angled. The thumb safety has some issues, it doesn't feel smooth and it seems to travel too far. The good news is that it eats everything that I fed it, although my groups were pretty poor, probably a combination of this being the shortest gun I own and the front sight issue. I know springfield will make it right, and I'll probably have some custom work done while its there. Still its no fun to have to send a new toy away. Pics when I can find my camera. In other news I picked up a G35 and it feels great... too bad the trigger is a typical Glock trigger. EDIT: When using right side of the safety, it clicks twice when disengaging it. I put a few more rounds downrange and have 100 rounds of ball and 100 rounds of remington gold saber without so much as a hiccup.
