    Is the EMP 1911 a Compromised Design?

    Ayoob: Is There a 9mm 1911 Problem?

    I have been remiss in not following up with a range report, but will do so. Since posting, I had an ejector problem with the REMP 3, and while S/A was fixing the ejector I also had them do a trigger job to reduce the pull weight and make things smoother. While the REMP was being serviced by...

    Springfield Ronin EMP 4 Failure to Feed

    Is the extractor still securely held in place by 2 pins? I have had one break in the past, and that caused the extractor to swivel slightly and cause some failures to eject. Also, make sure that when cleaning the slide, the channel for the extractor is well-cleaned and lubed. A polished ramp...

    Springfield Ronin EMP 4 Failure to Feed

    Did you contact S.A. customer service? Your new EMP comes with a lifetime warranty, and the S.A. customer service phone reps are very knowledgeable and helpful. I had an issue with a broken weld on the spring assembly of my Ronin EMP 3, and S.A. sent me a replacement assembly at no charge and...

    Did I Overstep on this One?

    Good job! When it comes to family and friends in need, sending lawyers, guns and money even as discrete, just-in-case backup, can't be that bad! ;) But then again, I am a fan of Warren Zevon's tunes.

    Review: XD-M Magwell Conversion Kits

    Would like to do this with my Ronin EMP3. However, I think I would be limited to the 10 round mag that goes with the EMP4, and even then, I’m not sure whether or not there would be some cycling issues with that longer mag in my gun. Nonetheless, it would still be nice to have more magwell...

    Ronin 9mm full disassembly

    Did you scope out the S/A 1911 Manual on line at: S/A Ronin 1911 Manual I think it's the same manual as for the .45 caliber model.

    Multiple people approach vehicle in possible carjacking attempt in middle of night. But victim has a gun

    I think I get it: Sinatra‘s Strangers in the Night and Some Enchanted Evening from South Pacific! Like Quentin Tarantino movie soundtracks preluding a looming confrontation. 😆

    leather holster, finally

    I have a Mitch Rosen IWB for my Ronin EMP 3, and the holster mouth is steel reinforced to prevent closing. Purchased the "Clipper" model from their express line (faster turn around). The fit and finish is excellent, and the belt clip is heavy duty and holds the holster in place with no issue...

    Review: Swampfox Kentucky Long Scope

    Nicely done video and very informative article. (y) Like the info on the Reece MIL reticle design, and have been wanting to check into this more. I've been using a Swampfox Arrowhead LPVO 1-8x24 with a red MOA reticle. It has excellent illumination and clarity, and the push/pull locking turrets...
