RECUT BARREL RAMP, POLISHED BARREL RAMP, ADJUSTED EXTRACTOR, REPLACED EJECTOR PIN AND PINNED EJECTOR THEN SAFETY CHECKED/TESTED

I am hopeful but after reading so many responses from others I will reserve judgement until I can shoot it for a while.

I will let you know how it goes
If you check out one of my posts on the third page of this thread, I posted what Springfield did to my gun, the first time it was returned to them. It looks like they performed basically the same work on yours that they did on mine. The second trip back, they throated the barrel a bit. The third time, all they did was run at least a hundred rounds through it, without malfunction.

I really believe that it is just an ammo issue, at this point, as I didn't have any issues with Winchester White Box. I plan on trying the troublesome PMC Bronze 115 grain FMJ ammo in my new 3" EMP, and see how it compares. If I have the same issues, I will contact Springfield and see what they want to do. Hopefully you will have luck with their modifications.

immo- As of now, I will only be running Winchester White Box ammo through this gun. I bought the gun to plink with, not to carry. If the PMC stuff won't run reliably, I just won't mess with it in this gun anymore...

I don't blame ya there. At a little over 18 cents per round, that is a good buy. Thats down around 5 cents, or so, per round, since about a year ago.

I dropped off my emp champ 40 off at JoJo’s here in CT.. not sending back to SA. He’s the best in CT and said not to worry. They make them tight and that it’s unfortunate they jam. His reliability package will have it running like a hot rod. Made me feel better and he also stated that The EMP is a really good gun. I did take it out back a few times this summer and ran another 500 thru it. When it shoots, it’s a fantastic gun. Hopefully I can give another update in a month or so.

Interested to see how it turns out. I agree that the EMP is a really good gun. I just never thought that it would be finicky about FMJ ammo. I plan on running some of the same troublesome PMC ammo through my 3" EMP, and see if I have the same trouble...

After hearing the great reviews and talking to the owner of JoJoís last week, Iím pretty confident itíll run like a Ferrari! He was adamant that I not give up on it. We will see..
