  • Made specifically for 9mm
  • Match-grade bull barrel
  • No front strap checkering
Editor’s Note:

Designed with the 9mm cartridge in mind, the Springfield Ronin uses proprietary parts to shorten the length of the frame and action while also reducing the grip circumference. The result is a more concealable 1911 that also features improved reliability with the 9mm cartridge.

final verdict

For those who want to conceal carry a 1911 platform gun, the Ronin EMP deserves consideration. Instead of simply chopping a .45 ACP gun and sticking a 9mm barrel in it, Springfield designed the Ronin EMP from the ground up with 9mm in mind. With parts correctly downscaled for the cartridge, users get a smaller, lighter, more reliable handgun. Throw in a match-grade barrel that is fully supported and an excellent trigger, and you have a winning combination. The only real downside is the lack of front strap checkering or serrations, but that is nothing a little grip tape can’t fix.
