I use the MK-Tec 1911 with the carbon fiber open end and I reheated the kydex with a hair dryer too lock the safety in.

So did you get the 4" as yet? I'm eyeing the same in .40cal but will wait a couple months after they hit the street
for someone to find the bugs if any.

Yes. Had the same problem with this one that I had with the 3" model. The ejector started backing out of the frame after a couple hundred rounds. They are glued not pinned. Had to send it back to get it pinned. See picture. You shouldn't be able to see daylight between the ejector and the frame. Other than that, nice shooter. Got it at about 20% off the MSRP.

So i pulled the trigger last night . . . . .arf arf and pushed the "buy now" button. Yep, ca ching !
Springfield Armory EMP 4 inch in .40 cal $962.00 no extra for plastic & includes shipping. it is what it is.
Notified the local FFL, so just sitting back for the call, probably thur or fri........

So next step is to put a set of truglo tfx sights (tritium & fiber) on it if available. Have them on four other pistols, guess i approve.
Luckily i won't be carrying this, at least not in near future, so i can procrastinate on the holster till more options
and what i want comes to light.

Hope this one makes it thru the break in trials . . . .and graduates to "its a shooter" class :)

Tomorrow is pick up day for you.
Let us know how it shoots. I have 2 40 cals and just prefer my 45's.
Old school I guess but have some buds who like the .40.
