Cool. Since the mag is shorter and the spring is the same the follower has a little more tension when empty and should lock back on empty very reliably.

Hey man, I sent you a PM, never heard back. You still modifying mags? I'd like to order a couple new mags to your doorstep for you to modify. Drop me a line and let me know where to send them to, and how to pay you.

You do show in my PM box on 12-12-2010, but sorry I missed you. The PM system is hard to miss. PM sent and thanks for inquiring.

EMP Magazines

Hello Log Man,

I just bought a EMP also. I really dislike the extended mags. I sent you a PM today, actually two, but it does not show on my list of sent prviate messages. Just trying to make sure I get into contact with you. Im really interested in doing the flush mount conversion.

Thanks so much,

Carl

PDAs?

Logman, I need to send you some EMP mags.
Do you also do PDA mags?

Yes, the PDA looks to have a similar base and could be converted to flush, as long as the follower style will allow top installation.

PM for info.

I'll take a look at my mags tonight. Para did the same thing to the LDA as SA did to the EMP - mag extensions

I checked the PDA mags. they have amolded plastic follower vs the stamped steel follower of the EMP. Looks to me like they have to come out the bottom.
But the grip length with the bumper is about the same as an EMP would be without it. I get 3 fingers on both, no more. On the EMP the extra length is wasted, for my hands at least.

While I had both guns out, I thought I'd do some comparison.
Both the PDA and the EMP are the same thickness, slide and grip.
grip length Front to rear is also the same. The only difference is the longer grip of the EMP, as it holds an additional round.
Also, the PDA weighs .2 oz less, empty.

So, what was the big deal about the EMP being completely re-engineered around the smaller 9mm round? Looks like Para accomplished the same thing without reinventing the wheel.
Plus, it's double action, has no beavertail to snag, and it's lighter.

Subjectively though, the EMP was a little more enjoyable to shoot. Not sure why, it's been a while since I shot the Springfield. Maybe that little extra grip length helped with control. And it had a good single0action trigger.

But, I think the PDA gets the nod for the better carry gun.

Logman, I'll see about getting a few of those EMP mags to you
PM me your mailing address please, plus total cost to do 3 mags

In the spirit of resuscitating this thread back from hibernation . . .

The Springfield Web Store has a Holiday sale going on through December 15th. Everything is currently 30% off.

I just ordered several .40 EMP mags at $17.85 each with plans to send them off to Log for his mod.

Had three mags done by log man. Sent, modified, and returned in less than a week. Great job on them! I can't wait to get to the range to try them out.

Dang! Missed it by a day. Guess I'll have to settle for the "Loaded" price.

Thanks for the excellent job on my 2 mags Log Man. It's hard to figure why SA would have a mag base just for one more round in the pistol. They spent a lot of time and money developing the smallest CCW 1911, and then they use a mag that adds length to it.

I would not have bought a EMP if I couldn't get flush magazines

I've had the log man modification performed on several magazines and was very satisfied; I much prefer the flush fitting magazines, determining factor prior to my EMP purchase.
