    These are my carry guns and each one is made with exactly the same sights, safeties, triggers and all other parts so I don't have to think or retrain even though some are 9MM and one is 45.

    I have eight 1911's. I have to say that one of yours is a H&K P7.

    aw shucks, busted
    It is a P7M13. Top is Colt Commander 45 and the middle is a commander sized 9MM that I built from scratch and the bottom is a full size Springfield 9MM full size.
    I don't carry the P7 much as it is too heavy when full load aboard. But it is without doubt the most accurate pistol I have ever carried, right out of the box. I had Robbie Baarkman do his NP3 finish to it and both mags. The toughest finish that can be put on a gun.

    Good eye

    How many rounds does your 9 mag hold ?

    I probably only caught it because I have always wanted a P7 - just can't afford one. I got to shoot one about 30 years ago and it seemed to be the most accurate pistol I had ever fired (up to that time) and just fell into lust.

    I've got a PSP, also NP3ed, and I agree, it is EXTREMELY accurate.

    I brain-faded when I sent my gun off, and did NOT send the spare mag. Oh well. Live and learn.

    Still even with all the handguns I own it is the most accurate. Just too heavy to carry for 12 to 16 hrs a day. Maybe its just me and my old age. Nah!!

    It only weighs in at a mere 27oz., compare that to a full sized 1911 at 32 oz. How many men have carried a 1911 all day long!

    I bought this EMP for my daily carry piece but I haven't been able to make myself shoot it. It's just too pretty! It lives in my safe while I carry an ugly Glock.

    Hey Geezer
    What is it they say about "like minds"lol.

    I just got one also and took it to the range just this morning. I got about 125 rounds thru it and not a single hiccup.
    I was shooting my 115 gr jacketed loads.
    It is a little different than my commander but a real blast to shoot and very accurate.

    Good luck.

    Hey Unc, I've had mine for 4or5 yrs. I take it out of the case every yr. & clean it & oil it, but no shooting, yet! They've gone up in price since I got mine.
